Callum Francis is the star of the off-Broadway revival of the Tony-winning musical Kinky Boots and we caught up with him to learn some fun facts that fans might not already know!

After previously playing the role of Lola in London, in Australia, and on Broadway, Callum is back in the boots for the off-Broadway return of Kinky Boots.

Callum‘s additional credits include the West End production of Miss Saigon and the Australian production of The Phantom of the Opera, among others.

Kinky Boots is currently playing at Stage 42 in New York City and it’s getting rave reviews!

Check out the 10 Fun Facts below:

  1. I am the baby of five boys. My parents wanted a girl so had one last child and got me. Lola is the daughter they tried for.
  2. I am the only performer in my family. The only other person in the biz was a great uncle who worked as a stage manger for a while.
  3. I started performing quite late. I wanted to be an architect but soon realized I didn’t have the brains to do it. I still love design though.
  4. I have never got my license. Failed my test once and because I’m so stubborn I never tried again – LOL!
  5. I would happily eat sweet treats all day every day. You can never have too much. I know I will have zero teeth as an old man but they’re just too good.

  1. I’m lucky enough to call three places home – Australia, NYC and England.
  2. I’m allergic to bees and wasps – and in the past six years have become allergic to apples. Sad times, no more apple pies.
  3. Every audition I have ever done I’ve sang the same song and it’s always worked even if it was for something completely different. I’m too ashamed to say what it is though.
  4. Avatar is one of my favorite films – watched it far too many times. It’s currently on whilst I’m writing this.
  5. I can’t use the freezer without gagging. The ice goes through me so much, I usually get someone else to do it for me.

Go see Kinky Boots right now at Stage 42 in New York City. Tickets are on sale!
