About Lee Latchford-Evans
Lee was born in Chester, England and raised in Ellesmere Port.
Lee always loved sports and performing.
At a very early age he was auditioning for school productions and being cast in Nativity plays and musicals as well as playing for the school football team.
At 15 Lee decided to put his name down for the school production of Grease not thinking anything would really come of it.
Lee landed the lead role and after becoming a big hit with his friends and teachers the love for performing truly came to life.
Lee pushed for audition after audition and eventually landed a role acting with the Royal Shakespeare Company as well as becoming the first male to successfully audition for a place on the dancer’s course at West Cheshire college of Dance and Drama.
During this time Lee was also heavily into martial Arts and Football.
He was spotted by a Wimbledon football scout and had the hard decision of seeing where that would go (maybe professional) or going to dance and drama college (Billy Elliot style).
Being working class and his parents having already paid, he chose the theatre route.
At the age of 19 after passing his A levels in dance and achieving his B tech National diploma in performing Arts Lee moved from the North and travelled to the South where he was accepted into the prestigious Laine Theatre Arts school in Epsom. Here Lee trained in Musical Theatre, Acting and many styles of dance leaving the college with his school diploma and LAMDA certificates in Acting.
On leaving college Lee successfully auditioned for the musical Tommy and for a very unknown pop project.
Again having quite a major ‘crossroads in life’ decision not knowing what would happen Lee chose the pop project.
Nowadays Lee is best known for being one fifth of the pop phenomenon “STEPS”
Lee has travelled the world with the band hitting the top of the single and album charts in the UK, Japan, Australia, continental Europe, SE Asia and touring extensively with Britney Spears all over America.
Despite announcing their split on boxing day 2001 Steps got back together in 2011.
They remain together to this day releasing Album after Album, a succession of sold out Arena Tours, achieving numerous awards including the prestigious Brit Award, Attitudes ‘Icon’ award and have sold in excess of 22million records worldwide.
