“To be honest all I wanted to be was an extra in Harry Potter, I just wanted to wear a cloak and have a wand. But mainly I wanted to be in the great feast scenes at the beginning of the films.”
Those are the words of young Coventry-born actor Bally Gill who is to play the iconic role of Romeo, taking on his first Shakespeare leading role, in director Erica Whyman’s production, of Romeo and Juliet, which runs from 21st April.
Bally made his RSC debut as part of The Other Place Mischief Festival in 2016, and last year he appeared in Vice Versa, Salome and Coriolanus.
