Rocky Horror Show star hopes to hit a high note in Grimsby
"I'M A Grimsby virgin!"
Eastenders actor Sam Attwater is showcasing his American acting skills in town this week.
Sam, who played Leon Small in the soap, is on stage at Grimsby Auditorium until Saturday, playing Brad in the world-famous musical The Rocky Horror Show.
"I have only just joined the cast midway through the tour. I was really nervous performing my first show," he told the Grimsby Telegraph.

"When I was rehearsing for the part it was very strange because I just performed with the assistant director and none of the other actors.
"I have never been to Grimsby, so I'm a Grimsby virgin and I am enjoying it so far.
"My character Brad is all American and he is the guy everyone wants to be – the caption of the football team and an A-star student too.
"This show is very different and it is also contrast to my TV work because you can't make a mistake on stage."
Sam enjoys both television and theatre work because he gets a "different buzz" from both of them.
He said: "I love every aspect of performing from singing, dancing and acting, but next I would like to have a go at TV presenting.
"After the show I will have three weeks off, and hopefully have a holiday abroad somewhere.
"And after my break, I have the musical Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. I will play the lead called Adam and it is set in the 1850s."
