John Owen-Jones is a record-breaking West End and Broadway actor and singer. He is best known for his critically acclaimed and award-winning performances as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables and as The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera. In the UK, he has performed extensively in theatre, appeared on television and radio, and performed in concert around the world.
Owen-Jones remains the youngest actor in West End history to have played Jean Valjean in Les Miserables (a role he also played on Broadway) and has performed as the Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera nearly 2000 times - more than any actor in the show's entire West End run.
Owen-Jones has appeared in special finales for the Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera 25th anniversary performances at the o2 and Royal Albert Hall. He is in the unique position of being the only actor to have the opportunity to reinvent Valjean and The Phantom - in brand new Cameron Mackintosh productions that toured the UK and now tour the world to great acclaim. In an online poll, he was voted the "Best Ever Valjean" and "Best Ever Performer in Les Miserables" by fans of the show worldwide; his performance as Valjean can be heard on the Les Miserables Live! Album. He recently played Jean Valjean in Les Miserables at Dubai Opera, Dubai.
John has released four solo albums: John Owen-Jones (2009), Unmasked (2011), Rise (2015) and Bring Him Home (2017)
