Students from South Wales Stage School set to star in the most highly anticipated Christmas Special of the year!
Two students from the Mark Jermin Stage School star alongside JAMES CORDEN and RUTH JONES for the television event of the year set to be seen by over 10 million viewers!
It has been 10 years since the final episode of Gavin and Stacey aired and since then there has been high anticipation for the iconic characters to reunite and return to our screens. On 28th of May, the anticipation came to the end after James Corden announced that for Christmas Day the cast of Gavin and Stacey would be back for a one-off special.
Filmed 10 years after our departure from Barry Island the casting team was set with the ultimate challenge of finding the younger members of the cast. For such a high profile series a nationwide search took place over the Summer months hundreds of children battling to secure the coveted roles including many students from the Mark Jermin Stage School.
After numerous rounds and weeks of screen testing, two Mark Jermin students were handpicked for their roles. Oscar Hartland of Caerphilly Stage School one of the original Baby Neal’s was brought back to play Nessa and Smithy’s son, and Martha Tregonning of Cardiff Stage School was chosen as Gavin and Stacey’s long-awaited daughter.
The Mark Jermin Stage School was founded 27 years ago by Swansea Businessman, Mark Jermin. Since its inception, Mark has been nurturing the talent of tomorrow providing them with the skills and opportunities to thrive in the professional industry. Through this countless students have secured amazing opportunities staring in excellent projects for TV, Film, and stage.
This January the Stage School is opening its doors to welcome new students to continue the success in Cardiff and Caerphilly! Each brand new student will receive a FREE TRIAL allowing them to experience the class and meet the team ahead of enrolling as an official student of the Mark Jermin Stage School. Classes take place every Wednesday in St Martins School, Caerphilly and every Friday in Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff. Welcoming students from 4-18 years old, The Mark Jermin Stage School team hopes to nurture and encourage the next generation of creative minds from the heart of Wales.
