St Mary’s Youth Theatre’s old boy Marc Pickering, 23, recently played contestant R Wayne in Peter Kay's Britain's Got The Pop Factor, which was aired on Channel Four. Marc, who starred in many SMYT performances from a very early age, now lives in north London, said: "I was over the moon when I got the part. Peter Kay phoned me up to tell me, which was a shock in itself. When he told me I had the role I couldn't believe it. It was a good opportunity to show my ability as a comedy actor." It is not the first time Marc has appeared on screen. When he was just 13, he starred alongside Johnny Depp in the hit Hollywood film Sleepy Hollow whilst also rehearsing the part of Pilot in SMYT’S Jesus Christ Superstar. He has also starred in the films Calendar Girls and Cashback, as well as TV show Dalziel and Pascoe.
