Rob Lea is a young aspiring actor and long-term singer and musician. From a very early age, Rob took to music, learning several instruments such as trumpet, guitar, violin, drums, bass and piano. At the age of 16 he jumped head first into the world of music and only 6 months later he was headlining a production show in Spain.
He returned to England after saving up as much as possible to become a pro musician and singer. He wrote a great collection of original material and toured around the UK with his original band Wildkard. Meanwhile, Rob was honing his fronting skills in several covers bands, always aspiring to be a powerful, physical performer, much like his idols, Freddie Mercury and Steve Tyler.
In 2007, at the age of 20, Rob decided to pursue his other love and passion acting, and enrolled onto the Higher National Diploma in performing arts at Blackpool and the Fylde College. In 2009 Rob completed his HND with 20 distinctions in acting, directing and theatre production. For the next six months Rob appeared in commercials and small scale theatre tours, whilst also continuing with his music career by writing for young artists and performing as a session musician.
At the age of 23, Rob saw an advertisement for a Freddie Mercury Tribute, and the thought of being able to combine his love of acting and music, within a production such as a Queen tribute was extremely fitting, and since he grew up listening and learning from the music and live performances of Queen, it was a perfect match.
Rob prides himself on the quality and accuracy of his performances. He calls himself an actor before a singer and rightly so. Only through looking at Freddie’s character off stage as well as onstage does he believe you can understand Freddie.
