Starpulse, Film Magic & Getty Images caught Will out and about on the Red Carpet at the 4th Annual Salute to the Stars Oscar Party at W Hollywood last night!
With the dust barely settled on the London run of Wind in the Willows Entertainment Weekly , Starcasm.net & AceShowbiz confirm Will has been cast as Julian Marquet (Cathy’s abusive, dancer boyfriend) in “Petals on the Wind”, Lifetime’s sequel to its film “Flowers in the Attic”. Flowers was a huge success for Lifetime earning over 6 million viewers. Heather Graham and Ellen Burstyn are reprising their roles while Rose McIver is taking on the lead role of Cathy.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
To kick off 2014 we bring you no less than FIVE great interviews with Will!
The First by Charlie Kenber for London Calling (photo by Fabien Martorell), Second by Charlotte Marshell for Official London Theatre, Third by Carrie Dunn for Broadway World West End, Fourth by Editorial Staff for What’s on Stage and the Fifth by Keith Watson for Metro Newspaper UK (copy below). Will answers questions and talks about his career move into acting and his return to dancing in Wind in the Willows.
“Will Kemp brings the charisma of a Hollywood leading man to the master boatman Ratty” - The Times.
Wind in the Willows has gained some great reviews (including three, 5 Star ratings & front page of New York Times!) and is proving to be a hot West End ticket. Congratulations to Will & everyone involved and we urge London theatre goers to book soon before it completely sells out!
From all @ willkemp.org : WE WISH YOU A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
THE FINANCIAL TIMES
“Much admiration for Will Kemp as Ratty,”
THE EVENING STANDARD
“Everything is geared towards character, colour and lively storytelling,”
GQ Fashion Eye was impressed with how Will wore his suit and Tatler Bystander has a lovely gallery from the Opening Night party of Wind in the Willows at The Duchess Theatre last Monday evening.

Huge congrats to all. Some great reviews coming out too…
willkemp.org wishes Will and everybody concerned in Wind in the Willows all the very best for a successful run of the show at The Duchess Theatre . If you are in London go see it!
With Wind in the Willows beginning previews at The Duchess Theatre in London’s West End next week the production is gaining press attention: The London’s Evening Standard Magazine ran a series of Backstage photos and a lovely written piece about the original book and Stage Production.
Here is an interview Will did for Grapevine TV on the back of Kristin’s Christmas Past and Non-Stop airing over the last week on TV.
Zap2It has a little piece on Lacey Chabert and “Non-Stop” the film she did with Will (a handsome, romantic stranger) earlier this year. Tune in or set your DVR for Lifetime Movie Network Original Movie premiere November 29 at 8 PM ET/9 PM PT.
Family Affair : Guest of a Guest caught Will along with his dancer Sister, Daisy-May Kemp, at the Sky Bar last Wednesday. They, along with some of Daisy’s cast mates from Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty, were supporting an event for LA Ballet hosted by John Terzian (pictured above) and Markus Molinari in Los Angeles. Will is obviously getting back into the Dancing spirit as he begins rehearsals for The Royal Opera House’s first ever West End Transfer (Wind in the Willows) this week in London!
