    Ludovico Moreno (Ludo) was 14 years old (D.O.B. = 16-Jun-2004) when he made his debut as Billy in BETM at the Nuevo Teatro Alcalá in Madrid.

    Ludo has been working with the BETM Madrid team since the production first opened in September 2017, and so has spent over a year and a half training in order to gradually improve all the skills he requires to play the demanding role of Billy.

    Outside of performing, one of Ludo’s biggest hobbies is baking and decorating cakes, and he regularly produces some impressive creations.
