Will there be a Cast change in Wicked UK? I just ask cause I wonder if Willemijn would/could take over (if she wants it at all). I think that Louise started playing Elphie last year in November? so I guess her contract ends in November also but maybe she would extend?!?!?

He has done well for himself since winning the TV search for Troy Bolton.  He was good in Hairspray, not sure I see him quite as Fiyero (may need to hit the gym a bit) but certainly can sing it

Having seen him recently, he certainly appears to have been hitting the gym ;)

Don't know if he's got too much of a baby face for Fiyero though...

   How did you find this out ? Because he hasn't announced it, neither has WICKED ?

If it is Liam Doyle then its another Fiyero clone. Hope he can sing and act.  This would be a novelty judging by recent Fiyero leads.
