Y&T Alumni Liyah Summers is currently starring in David Edgars’s Maydays as part of the RSC Mischief season. Ahead of tomorrow night’s opening night Y&T sat down to ask some questions about Liyah’s career path.
Liyah decided at the age of 12 that she wanted to be an actor after performing in a school production. “I had the best time and I remember thinking , this could be cool to do full time.”
Liyah took part in a summer programme with Y&T when she was 14. It confirmed “that I wanted to be a performer. I sang in front of an audience for the first time…I had a new lease of confidence and excitement about the world of performing. From this I then done a year at Y&T, doing singing, dancing and acting classes weekly.”
