Where Pass London interview Jade Ewen about her Perfect Day

main-10.jpg

My Perfect Day


In June, we caught the opening night of 'Aladdin' and were quite simply blown away - read our rave review about the production here. When we heard Where London magazine interviewed the actress playing Jasmine, Jade Ewen, in the August issue, we couldn't help joining the magic carpet ride...

Hi Jane, on your 'Perfect Day' in London, what time would you wake up?Around 10am at the latest. I usually wake up a lot earlier. It would be nice to lie in, but I don’t want to waste the day.
What would be your perfect breakfast?I quite like bagels, salmon and scrambled eggs.
What are your favourite buildings?I like classic buildings – they are awe-inspiring and detailed. I find history really interesting. St Paul’s Cathedral is incredible, and I love the Royal Albert Hall, too.
What museums and galleries do you love?I loved the Natural History Museum as a child as there’s so much to see there.
Is there a place in London that holds a special memory for you?At the moment it is The National Gallery – we had the press party for Aladdin there. It was so grand! It was the highlight of my career, and inspires me to keep going.
Where do you like shopping?I love Borough Market. I love the hustle and bustle, the food and trying things. I enjoy Shoreditch for shopping – I get hand-crafted pieces of jewellery there, which you wouldn’t normally find in traditional stores.

What has been a memorable purchase?A turquoise and silver pendant from Shoreditch. It is an ornate piece.
What green spaces do you like?I have a lot of fond memories of Regent’s Park. I did Porgy and Bess there last year at the Open Air Theatre. I got to perform in that setting, and had picnics near the lovely lake – it’s beautiful.
What places in the city inspire you?I spent my childhood in Plaistow, east London, and I have recently been revisiting this area, which I haven’t been to for years. When I see those places, like my primary school and dance school, I never dreamed I’d be doing what I’m doing now.
How do you prefer to travel in the city?I’ve always loved the Tube. I struggle sitting in a car when there is traffic, and buses give me motion sickness. I know the Tube like the back of my hand. I’m quite good at all the lines and how to get around fast.
Would you do anything extravagant?I would go to the Four Seasons’ day spa on Park Lane and treat myself to a massage.
Where would you have a drink?I’m not a massive drinker, so I would choose a bar where I can socialise with friends. Bar Italia is great.

What would be your ideal entertainment?Anywhere with live music. Ronnie Scott’s is amazing.
Where do you like to eat out?I love to eat! The other day I went to Zuma in Knightsbridge for sushi. It was delicious; everything I ordered was good. I also like Wolfgang Puck at Cut at 45 Park Lane Hotel, as they do good steaks and sweet potato fries.
You are currently starring in Aladdin. Tell us about the show?It is the biggest production to ever come to the West End. We hold the world record for the most amount of costume changes, too – 108 in two minutes. We also have eight million crystals in the show!
What makes London stand out from the rest of the world?I’m proud that I’m from London. There’s just so much to do all the time, so I’m never bored. I’ve been fortunate to travel quite a lot with my work, but I always come back to London. People say they want to live abroad, but the capital will always be my number one as I don’t think anywhere else in the world beats it.
Where would you spend the night?I love the Corinthia Hotel.

SUGABABE: Amelle Berrabah wants to become a coach on The Voice
EX-SUGABABE Amelle Berrabah wants to become a coach on The Voice. The About You Now singer would love to get her peachy bum cheeks on one of the famous red swively chairs when the revamped singing contest moves to ITV next year.
Amelle told me: “I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to do it. “I’m a big fan of The Voice and would love to be a mentor or coach. “I think I have enough experience. I’ve been in the industry a long time. I’ve had chart success, always sung live and have a wrote a lot for myself and others.”
In fact, Celebrity Masterchef star Amelle revealed she’s built a successful secret career writing big pop hits for well known artists.
Amelle, who is currently working on solo music, added: “I have four writing alias’s, including one male name. “Ive been writing for a lot of artists, including some big names but don’t want to reveal who because the music industry can be snobby.
“People don’t want to take a song from an ex-girl group singer regardless of whether it’s good or not. “I love the fact that I have songs in the charts right now and the public or even the artists don’t know I’ve wrote it.”

Jade Ewen: West End Princess -The Voice

LEADING LADY: Jade Ewen [Photo credit: Helen Maybanks]
EVERY YOUNG girl grows up wanting to be a Disney princess.
With an unlimited supply of stunning dresses, a Prince Charming to call your own and the promise of happily ever after, what’s not to love?
Former Sugababe Jade Ewen has had one of her childhood wishes granted as she takes on the part of sassy Princess Jasmine in the screen-to-stage adaptation of the Disney classic Aladdin at Prince Edward Theatre in London. One week in, she’s has already won rave reviews.
The 1992 animation was formative stuff for Ewen, who still remembers the first time she watched Jasmine on her television screen.
“I just love Aladdin,” she told The Voice.
“I love the songs, I love the magic and I love Jasmine. Jasmine was so exotic and she was the first princess I saw who slightly resembled me,” says the actress, who was born to a Jamaican mother and a Scottish-Sicilian father.
“But I never ever dreamed that I would be playing her - and I remember when I heard about the audition for it, I was too scared to allow myself to get excited about the possibility... because it’s so, so tough.
“Just to book a leading lady role… it’s not an easy thing to do. So when they told me I’d got it, I screamed. I screamed and screamed and I couldn’t believe it. It’s more than I could have asked for.”
With 108 costume changes in two minutes in just one song, more than 2.8 million crystals used, and a real life flying carpet, Aladdin is certainly the biggest show in the West End right now.

“It doesn’t get more glamorous and opulent than this,” Ewen gushes. “It’s stunning. It’s going to be an incredible experience for the audience.”
The 28-year-old first came into the public eye as a Eurovision hopeful - finishing fifth in 2009 and making her the UK’s most successful act in the last 12 years.
Before that, Ewen, who replaced Keisha Buchanan in Sugababes in September 2009 before the group officially split in 2011, actually started her performance career in West End’s The Lion King where she played a young Nala.
“Disney has always been a massive part of the reason why I perform, because it was my introduction to musical theatre,” she enthuses.
“Growing up, my two favourite Disney films were The Lion King and Aladdin, so I’ve managed to do them both now.
She adds: “Coming back to the West End is nice, it’s like a homecoming.”
Ewen grew up in Plaistow, east London, with her two siblings and her parents who both suffer from severe disabilities.
Her father, Trevor is blind and partially deaf and her mother, Carol, is partially blind. As the eldest of three children, Ewen was largely responsible for the day-to-day running of family life.

But as her performing career kicked off, and she became more successful, she wasn’t able to spend much time at home.
“It’s a complicated thing really - I always felt like my parents wanted to see me succeed. They struggled with not having the best opportunities in life because of their disabilities. So my parents really stressed that I made the best of every opportunity I was given and talent I was born with,” she explains.
“The way I see it, if I’m successful, I’m able to help them more. I may not have been there physically, but I feel like, while pursuing this career, I am able to support them more than before. You do feel a little guilty about not helping out with the day-to-day stuff, but then I feel quite proud that I can take care of them in the long-term.”
The Londoner, who says she’d loved to portray the late Donna Summers in a biopic of the Queen of Disco’s life, adds: “I have to say, though, that being a young carer has more positives than negatives for me in my life. It made me stronger than I realise. I can get the job done, which is really useful in my line of work – where I have to focus and the hours can sometimes be gruelling. And I didn’t miss out, it wasn’t a bad experience – it helped me overcome obstacles.”

Aladdin review: A dazzling Disney pantomime with a show-stopping genie ★★★★

Aladdin review: A dazzling Disney pantomime with a show-stopping genie ★★★★

Aladdin review: A dazzling Disney pantomime with a show-stopping genie ★★★★
By 
Even the man behind The Book of Mormon must have quailed a little at the prospect of turning the 1992 animation into a musical. There are the logistical challenges: the magic carpet, the secret cave stuffed with gems and gold, the materialising and dematerialising genie. But the real head-scratcher must have been casting the Genie: How could anyone step into the shoes of the late, great Robin Williams?
Wisely, director/choreographer Casey Nicholaw hasn’t attempted to imitate Williams. His genie also steals the show but he’s a different beast in the hands of US actor Trevor Dion Nicholas, who was the Genie standby on Broadway for a year. Nicholas’s head twinkles like a disco ball and he lights up the stage with his jolly flamboyance. His song Friend Like Me pulls almost every trick in the theatrical book and won him a standing ovation on Monday night.
Trevor Dion Nicholas as the Genie
Bar the odd Bruce Forsyth and Tommy Cooper gag, the West End version is the same as the Broadway hit, even down to the American accents. Yet the first half in particular plays out like an awfully British pantomime, although the actors stop short of chucking sweets into the audience and inviting us to boo the baddie.


The leads are both Brits: Dean John-Wilson plays a wholesome Aladdin, while Jade Ewen is a feisty Jasmine with a silken voice. As the Genie notes in a new prologue, they’re supported by a very good-looking ensemble who sing and dance their hearts out in teeny but dazzling costumes. The secret cave is indeed awash with gold and also got a round of applause.
New songs pad out the original score. The best of these is High Adventure, thanks to the physical tomfoolery of Aladdin’s trio of pals who have replaced his pet monkey Abu. Happily, barely a word of Jafar and Iago’s deliciously evil double-act has been changed (Iago is a human, not a wisecracking parrot, but otherwise is every inch Gilbert Gottfried who voiced him in the movie).
As for the magic carpet, it lives up to its name. In fact, it doesn’t just circumnavigate the globe this time; it flies into space and there’s not a string or a pulley to be spied.
Aladdin is at Prince Edward Theatre until October

Katherine and Ryan were no doubt enjoying a night in adult company after welcoming their daughter Orla in 2014. 
Speaking about motherhood, the Mr Selfridge star revealed that having a child had a profound effect on her emotions, telling the Daily Mail's You magazine: 'I get weepy even watching the news. 
'I agree with my mother that having children removes a layer of skin that you never grow back.' 
Treat from the East-ender: Turning heads at the event was actress Preeya Kalidas who showed off her phenomenal figure in a floor length black gown that was adorned in lace

She added: ‘Orla’s full of energy – we have to take her out at least twice a day to burn it off. 
‘Becoming a mother has turned my world upside down, but in a really good way – it’s the best.’
But there was no better place to take a break from caring for the baby than the star-studded Aladdin premiere where Katherine and Ryan rubbed shoulders with a host of celebrities.
