    276: Layton Williams | Part 2

    Will we be seeing the return of Layton Williams to the stage soon? This week, we are absolutely thrilled to be joined by the wonderful star of hit West End shows like Everbody's Talking About Jamie. Layton joined us for a lovely chat about his stellar career and why people shouldn't just see him in one light: as a stage star.
    We find out how he deals with headlines, where he likes to hang out in Soho and the most embarrassing thing to ever happen to him on stage. Plus, the real reason he HARD launched his relationship.

LOVE

This show is such a ray of light! I discovered it during the panorama, like so many others, and have been blowing through the episodes. Not only are the interviews insightful and funny, there is just something about Chris’s voice that is SO calming. Lots of love! Can’t wait to hear the next episode.
