Siobhan Dillon Biography



Siobhan Dillon may not have landed the role of Maria Von Trapp in "The Sound of Music" but she achieved the ultimate dream after coming third in the BBC show "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria".

On January 25th 2010 she took over the role of Sandy in the West End production of "Grease". This was a role she had wanted to play since she was 8-years-old. She had auditioned several times for the show before she made her West End debut in 2007 playing cheer leader Patty Simcox and understudying the roles of Sandy and Marty. Having auditioned for the part of Rizzo before she had covered nearly all the female roles.

When she first joined the show producer David Ian said "I knew she was something special when I first saw her in the search for Maria and I am very pleased she will be playing in "Grease".

She finished playing Patty on June 14th 2008 and was delighted to be invited to return two years later to get the ultimate prize role.

When she was 8 her babysitter was putting on a Gala Concert to raise money to study at the Italia Conti Drama Academy and Siobhan asked her if she could sing Sandy's song "Look at Me I'm Sandra Dee" in the concert. It went down very well and she was invited to join the local youth theatre when she was 10-years-old.

On her 10th birthday she asked her parents for singing lessons and she had vocal training with singing teacher Richard Paul up to the age of 16. Despite performing in shows at school she did not want to be a professional singer, but turned to the world of fashion.

She was in the middle of her first year of a BA (Hons) degree in Product Design and Development for Fashion Industries Accessories Pathway at the University of Arts in London when she took part in "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria."

She was one of the favourites to win during the initial auditions but she failed to make the final 10. It was only when Emilie Alford dropped out she was brought back having been the last one to be eliminated. This earned her the nickname "2nd Chance Maria."

She made the last three and in week six in the run-up to the final Andrew Lloyd Webber took the three of them to Vienna to visit the locations made famous by "The Sound of Music." They visited the Leopoldskron Palace and Nonnberg Abbey to give them a chance to understand the real Maria Von Trapp.

She never did go back to finish her degree and has no regrets about doing the show. "I wouldn't be where I am now if I hadn't done it," she said. "It was a load of fun and I didn't feel any pressure as I was already studying for a degree so it wasn't the be-all and end-all. Because of that I really enjoyed myself and made the most of it."

She admits now she never actually practised for the Saturday night live show and had not done any acting so she did not know how to act the songs. She has had lessons since and private tuition in acting and dancing.

The tuition has paid off as she has never stopped working since the programme. Following the show she signed a record deal with Andrew Lloyd Webber's company "The Really Useful Group" and she is writing and recording her first album.

On Christmas Eve 2007 she performed with Lee Mead, winner of "Any Dream Will Do" and Connie Fisher plus the other Maria and Joseph finalists in a special festive reunion show "When Joseph Met Maria" celebrating both hit shows.

In late 2009 she took over the role of Sally Bowles in the UK tour of "Cabaret" and she is currently playing the part of Vivienne Kensington in the West End production of "Legally Blonde" which she started playing on October 25th 2010.
