Paul Wilkins is from Hampshire, UK and graduated from ArtsEd, London in the summer of 2015 with a BA Hons in Musical Theatre. In the summer of 2015, Paul joined the 30th Anniversary company of 'Les Misérables' on London’s West-End at The Queens Theatre, on Shaftesbury Avenue. His journey with Sir Cameron Mackintosh's original production accelerated when he was offered the lead role of Marius on the International Tour which played in Philippines, Singapore & finally to UAE for the grand opening of the Dubai Opera House. Before Christmas in 2016, Paul returned to the West-End where he continued playing Marius for a further 18 months.
Following his three-year run with 'Les Miserables', Paul workshopped and originated the role of Reggie in an original British musical called 'The Dreamers', written by rising duo and producers Gina Georgio and James Beeny. Originally intended to play as a concert, The Dreamers took shape as a full scale and first-time production within the walls of the world famous Abbey Road Studios. Shortly after this experience, Paul toured the UK and Germany in the 50th Anniversary Tour of 'Hair' in the role of Claude Bukowski - "Paul Wilkins lights up the stage" - The Stage. Paul has recently finished development rehearsals for a new musical, 'Lady M' written by James Beeny and Gina Georgio, directed by Jean Pierre Van De Spuy and Choreographed by Lizzie Gee.
