Not yet. I don't think they do it so it's 4 leave in a row and 4 new ones in a row. Hayley has been there nearly a year whereas the others started in August, so that might be why she's gone earlier :) And I think she is a little taller than the other 3.

Ah I hadn't realised she started earlier than the other Matilda's. I was just hoping to see her again but I'm sure all the others are just as great!

Why us everyone obsessed with who's playing Matilda ?!They are unknown children... Bit odd.

It is Telly, then Lavender and then When I Grow Up at the moment in London. I think it used to be telly then when I grow up too.

Ooh, right - haven't seen it since June so that was news to me!

I havent seen this for ages (before summer 2012) but wasnt Miracle always a kids' party? I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure it was...

Ah, sorry, should be more clear - the original teacher role now is a clown, complete with balloons.

They are also playing easily the biggest role in one of the West End's top shows. It's easy to see why people pay attention to it.

The same way everyone is obsessed with who's playing the leads in all the other shows in town?

Yes but that surely is based on the likelihood of having seen those performers in many other shows and following their careers.. These are kids. I don't understand. People are doing it on broadway world too.. Obsessing over which 9 year old is playing Annie.

Why should their age matter? People have an idea of who they'd prefer to see based on word of mouth, clips or previous experience. Some people like to know who they're going to see! It shouldn't matter too much with this show though as all the children in the show are great.

The thing I find weird about it, is no one has a bad word to say about any of them. It's not like "Oh it is an X show, wish I didn't have tickets", everyone loves whichever one they see, don't they?

I don't quite agree - a lot of discussion over actors is based on their merits as actors and not how well known they are/are likely to become! And all performers have to start somewhere! These kids may well be the 'known' performers in a few years!

That's slightly my point as well... Not one of them is a star.. They are all fabulous
