From auditioning for drama school in a football kit to receiving an Olivier Award nomination for his first leading role, this week Ian McIntosh talks us through his career. 

Ian is currently playing Galileo in the brand new touring production of Queen’s musical, We Will Rock You.

After finishing as the runner up in GMTV’s Search for Troy Bolton, Ian went on to understudy Troy Bolton in the UK tour of High School Musical 2 before understudying Claude in the European Arena Tour of Hair. 

He made his West End debut in Rock of Ages, eventually becoming the alternate for Drew. He was alternate Deco in The Commitments (original West End cast) and received an Olivier Award nomination for originating the role of Barry Mann in the West End production of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Prior to We Will Rock You, Ian starred as Young Ben in Dominic Cooke’s revival of Follies at the National Theatre.
