Lee Mead Biography

Selected from thousands of performers Lee Mead was thrust into the spotlight in 2007 to play the iconic lead role in the West End revival of Joseph, which enjoyed an incredible run that had to be extended to satisfy public demand to see Lee wear the coat of many colours!! From that point Lee's career has been a never-ending rollercoaster of engagements from stage to screen. In the West End Lee has appeared in such classic musicals as Wicked and Legally Blonde, to the touring production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to name just a few. On television Lee has been a regular in Casualty and Holby City starring as Lofty Chiltern - a part written especially for him.

On the recording front Lee has released five albums - the most recent of which Lee Mead 10 Year Anniversary was released to celebrate the ten years that have passed since Lee won the coveted role of Joseph. Lee has also featured on countless others including The Best of Andrew Lloyd Webber.
