Charlotte, Tom’s mother, signed him up for drama classes at the Television Workshop when he was an adolescent, which helped her son discover his talent for the creative arts. He then studied at the National Youth Theatre and trained at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City, graduating in 2020.

Tom’s first credited roles were in the 2010 movies “Pelican Blood” and “Robin Hood”.

Rachel, who has one older sister, is of Colombian and Polish descent and studied at Immaculate Conception High School. Before matriculating, the brunette had already starred in various musicals, such as “The Little Mermaid”, “42nd Street”, and “Beauty and the Beast”.

Thanks for making me laugh.’

The magnetic couple also star together in “Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes”. Rachel plays Lucy Gray Baird, the female protagonist, whereas Josh portrays mentor Sejanus Plinth. However, Rachel’s on-screen love interest is played by Tom Blythe.
