Jamie Campbell, the inspiration behind ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ – the award winning theatre production and soon to be theatrical film release. The musical was inspired by the 2011 BBC Three documentary Jamie: Drag Queen At 16, which followed a year eleven boy’s decision to wear a dress to prom, and the fall out when his teachers tried to ban him. The real-life inspiration for Jamie New is Jamie Campbell. Jamie grew up in an old mining village near Bishop Auckland, County Durham, a small market town in the northeast of England. Growing up, Jamie says he would always play dress up in his mum’s clothes, shoes and tights, describing himself as a ‘naturally flamboyant’ kid.
