Les Mis Cast Focus: Tegid (Enjolras)

  • Name: Tegid Goodman-Jones
  • Year group: Year 11
  • Role: Enjolras; Convict 2

There is not much that Tegid does not excel at from a Performing Arts perspective, and he will be taking on the role of Enjolras for the upcoming Dramatic Society production of Les Misérables.

The talented vocalist has enjoyed a glittering time at Rydal Penrhos since arriving on a Music scholarship as a Year 9 pupil in 2016, achieving a wealth of regional and national competition successes to further enhance his reputation as one of the brightest young singers anywhere in the country.

Among his most notable accolades is the double he scooped from last year’s Llangollen International Eisteddfod, and Tegid also possesses a number of Urdd National Eisteddfod trophies thanks to his sterling efforts on stage.

He is a prominent feature in the wealth of Concerts put on by the school throughout the academic year, in addition to prominent community events.

Tegid’s talent for all things related to Musical Theatre was especially evident during the RPS Showstoppers extravaganza last year, with his talent on the Hockey field another eye-catching element of his overall contribution to school life.

This has included a Welsh Schools’ Championship after playing a significant part in Rydal Penrhos’ U16 side last season, and he has also earned representative honours with the North Wales set-up and recently competed for the region at London’s Olympic Park alongside fellow pupils Jacob Heaton-Rue and Alex Starling.

Enjolras is a revolutionary who fights for a France with more rights for the poor and oppressed masses, ultimately dying for his beliefs in the June 1832 rebellion.

He is described as "a charming young man who was capable of being terrible" and as "Antinous wild".

Enjolras is said to have the appearance of "long fair lashes, blue eyes, hair flying in the wind, rosy cheeks, pure lips, and exquisite teeth".
