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 http://instagram.com/tommylenk

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?

Priscilla Queen Of The Desert at The Princess Royal Theatre Port Talbot

Big, Brash and Beautiful and that's just the bus!
The most fabulous bus in the world parks up at The Princess Royal Theatre in Port Talbot for five nights of outrageous fun.
We all know the story, three Drag Queens travelling across Australia in a bus called Priscilla. As musicals go this has it all, it's over the top, it's bursting with pop hits, it has enough comedy you'll be crying with laughter and enough sentiment to make you cry some more but for the majority of the show you'll be laughing and wishing you was on that stage singing along.  The Port Talbot & District Amateur Operatic Society deserve huge applause for this production, the enthusiasm and dedication to this performance was overwhelming. Huge performances from Carlton Gronow, Heflin Carwyn Rosser and Joe Crabbe who play the iconic roles of Tick, Felicia & Bernadette. Their onstage chemistry is fantastic and they provide most of the shows comedy. Everything about this production is BIG, the s…

Bernard Poyser | A Great Cardiffian

Just like everyone that knew Bernard Poyser we was devastated to hear of his sudden passing this month. Bernard was a great supporter of any event we was involved in, along with his wife Sandra and daughter Mel he volunteered every year at The Great Roath Bake Off and attended every RoathRocks gig. It was only a month ago he attended Nathan's  exhibition in the city centre, causing chaos as he manoeuvred his mobility scooter in the small exhibition area. Bernie was the life and soul of the party, always telling jokes and always laughing. We will miss the laughs, we will miss the jokes and the singing, your tales of the swinging sixties often had us in shock but always hysterics. This month we honour our friend The Cardiff Times Cardiffian Of The Month.

Bernard married Sandra in 1967 and they had Melanie and Christian in the early 70s. They lived in Roath for 44 years. (He grew up in Llanishen).
Bernard was a motor mechanic by trade.  He started working at J Sherlock and Son, Roath…

Scottish singer Jai McDowall won Britains Got Talent in 2011, the same year a certain food artist Nathan Wyburn made the semi finals. Jai is back with an amazing new single 'Cry' we caught up with Jai to see what he's been up to...
W&W: You won Britain's Got Talent 2011 (also shared your semi final with Nathan), 6 years on, any regrets? 
Jai:It was 5 years (don’t age us both too much) lol 
I don’t have any regrets I get to do a lot that I wouldn’t be able to do had I not been on that show, I will always be grateful for the platform I got from being on Britains Got Talent.

W&W: Oh gosh yeah 5!! Tell us what you've been doing since winning the show.. 
Jai: I have recorded an album with Syco and performed in concerts all over the UK and in China. I also got into songwriting as well and now do a lot of writing as well as performing. I have also recently got into Theatre and acting, so looking forward to seeing where life takes me.
W&W: You upload some great cover…
