Degrassi grad Epstein snags key role in Billy Elliot the Musical
“When I saw the show on Broadway a couple of years ago I immediately connected with Billy's older brother, Tony, and knew I'd love to play him one day,” Epstein told the Jewish Tribune. “A few months ago I got an audition for the role and the rest is history.”

What has he found to be the biggest challenge?

“It is probably acting with the British accent,” he said. “There's one thing just to do a Geordie accent, but it’s totally different to convey emotion with a new accent and to sound really natural. It's an ongoing challenge for the whole company. Oh and the pirouette I have to do in the show always stresses me out!”

...What is next for Epstein, after Billy Elliot wraps up?

“I just finished a movie called Blood Pressure shot in Toronto, that is coming out soon,” he said.

“Also there is something very exciting happening afterwards that unfortunately I can't tell anyone about yet.”

Billy Elliot the Musical will complete its Toronto run on Sept. 3. Ticket information is available at
