A WEST END star held a theatre workshop for budding drama pupils.

Charlotte Kennedy, who played Cosette in the West End production of Les Miserables, spent the day at Roedean School with Year 9 and 10 pupils.

She watched them rehearse the song At The End Of The Day from the hit musical.

Charlotte, who first joined Les Mis five years ago at the age of 20 and has enjoyed wide acclaim for the role, said it was tough to learn so much in one session, adding that the exercise was great for all pupils.

She said: “This is about acting through song, which is not easy. I’ve seen the girls blossom today and grow in confidence and that’s wonderful to witness.

“I hope by coming to Roedean and talking about my career I will inspire girls in whatever they want to do.”
