Tom Lenk Interview | Wyburn & Wayne

Holy Cow Poo... We got to chat with Tom Lenk, you know the guy who played Andrew in Buffy The Vampire Slayer!! Only the best show that ever was!! Since Buffy he's been busy making films, doing shows and taking Instagram by storm! You MUST check out his Instagram

We love your Instagram posts, so funny, so when do we get The Tom Lenk show? 

I actually just started taking meetings to do just that! People have been begging for it! It's time to give them what they want!  I can't wait to unleash my PASHUN For low price HI FASHUNS to the global television community! 

Of the stars you recreate in your videos and photos have any responded to you? I actually think Adele would love it.

I got WERD through a friend that Lena Dunham enjoyed her LEWK. And I was WERKING with Busy Phillips last week and asked her which of her red carpet LEWKS I should do and she suggested the red Vice Principals premiere dress!

Let's talk Andrew! What was it like being part of a mega show like Buffy The Vampire Slayer? 

It was a dream! What else can I say?  

Do you still hang out with any of the cast?

Yes I still hang out with many of my Buffy pals. And sometimes we even make MEWVIES together with Joss! Did you see Much Ado?! If not check it out. I think even Shakespeare purists will love it! And I think there's even a moment that teachers might have to stand in front of the TV for when it plays in classrooms! YAAASSS! So cheeky! I even had a ladies night out with SMG (pic on IG) to the Hollywood Bowl to see the Little Mermaid concert. I may have cried JUST A LITTLE at Sarah Bareilles GORJUS rendition of Part of Your World. 

Buffy is still hugely popular today what do you think the appeal was and still is?

Drama meets Comedy. Action meets story. Emotions meets Monsters. It had everything and lovingly referenced pop culture while becoming a huge part of pop culture in its own right! 

Film, tv, stage... Where are you most comfortable performing?

As with FASHUN, I am comfortable in any medium. I am a quadruple threat: acting, singing, light movement, and now I make my own wardrobe. I spent a good portion of last year performing BUYER and CELLAR (which is a one man, 1-hour-and-45-minute-no intermish-play) on the east coast. After memorizing 60 pages word for word and performing 8 times a week I fee like I can do anything these days! Except magic. Don't make me do magic tricks. I don't want to watch magic. Or try to do it. Or listen to someone describe a magic trick in order to persuade me to like watching magic tricks. Just tell me how it's done, otherwise I'm not interested ok?!!

So any plans to do a show in the UK? Any WestEnd Shows you'd like to star in?

I'm supposed to take LenkLewkLive to NYC this December and would LOVE to go back and perform in London. I did my last show Nerdgasm at the Soho Theater in London before I took it to the Fringe and had TR BEST TIME! 

Ok.. Choose one..
Buffy or Angel? 
Buffy. How is this even a question?! 
Clinton or Trump?
Clinton! AGAIN, how is this even a question?! 
Madonna or Gaga?
There real question is who would Eddy Monsoon choose?! Madge OBVS. 
Bieber or Bloom?
BLOOM Obviously for elvish reasons.  
Katy or Taylor?
Katy. We're both from the 805 area code so i want a California girl on my squad. Plus she drinks beer on a paddle board. Who doesn't love that?!

Finally if you could have your portrait made from something you love, maybe your favourite food, what would it be? Here's some of Nathan's previous work...

Jesus these are amazing and hilarious. I love tacos?! Is that doable?

Putting the Specs into Spectacular  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Oh Boy... it's so good! The Buddy Holly Story is still packing the theatres in after 25yrs and over 25,000 performances worldwide and it's clear to see why.

The cast are incredible, superb performances in the roles of Buddy, J.P Richardson 'The Big Bopper' and Mr swivel hips Ritchie Valens. Two hours of massive hits including 'Peggy Sue' 'Oh Boy' & 'Rave On' to name a few are the soundtrack to the life of Buddy Holly and his meteoric rise to fame.  Buddy is at The New Theatre until Saturday 8th July and it's a must see, feel good show that will have you bopping in the aisles and singing along to all those classic hits. A great touch at The New Theatre is the Budd…

Jig-So by Lloyd Macey

23-year-old Lloyd Macey launched “Jig-So” as part of his final-year project working towards his BA Perfformio at University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Featuring familiar faces such as Boyd Clack, whose acting credits include “Twin Town” and “High Hopes”, and Shelley Rees-Owen, who is known for her role as Stacey in “Pobol y Cwm”, “Jig-So” was an incredibly impressive project for anyone, let alone a university student. It took place on Friday 12th May at Yr Hen Lyfrgell - despite the drama only lasting for 30 minutes, it was very heartwarming and engaging. It's a bilingual drama revolving around a family in the Valleys that has to deal with the struggle of cancer, which according to Lloyd, is a subject close to his heart. Amazing performances, staging and lighting - overall an excellent evening. Definitely keep an eye out for Lloyd's upcoming performances - he certainly is one to look out for! Lloyd's directorial d├ębut was a great success, and we wish him the best of luc…

A Different Brain

On Wednesday 3rd May, Spilt Milk Theatre joined forces with Cardiff Fringe Fest at The Gate Arts Centre to celebrate and raise awareness of Autism. All proceeds went to The National Autistic Society to aid in their continuous provision of specialist services. The first half of the evening consisted of spoken word, poetry and a music performance inspired by personal relationships with Autism. Almost all performers recited an original piece, making the evening more touching, heartfelt and realistic. The second half of the evening was dedicated to a scratch performance of ‘A Different Brain’, a new musical written and composed by Tobias Weatherburn, whose older brother suffers from Autism. ‘A Different Brain’ documents a series of events in the life of Rachel, a young woman with Autism. Despite only being a three-man cast, the musical was impressive, moving and engrossing. Combining a serious matter with light comedy worked really well, allowing all audiences to have more of an insight …
