Sheffield boy Jake Saville appears on stage at the Lyceum in Sheffield in the opera Macbeth

Jake Saville, aged 11, will perform a small but pivotal role in Macbeth as Banquo’s son.

Jake started performing at the age of six where he appeared as Master Fitzwilliam Darcy in BBC's Death Comes to Pemberley. He has since gone on to act alongside David Tennant, appeared in CITV adverts and worked as an extra in Victoria, The Royals and David Copperfield.

He also performed in ETO's production of La Boheme at the Lyceum Theatre in 2015.
