Lancashire, England native Amy Nuttall classically trained as a singer. She kick-started her theatrical career when she understudied and played the lead role in a UK tour of Phantom of the Opera; at 17, she was the youngest actress ever to do so. In 2005 she landed a role on the popular British television soap opera Emmerdale Farm and, as well as multiple engagements in musical theater, has also appeared in the television series Hotel Babylon. Nuttall claims singing as her first love, and in 2005 she recorded an album "Best Days" which was nominated for Album of the Year at the Classical Brit Awards. She is engaged to actor Andrew Buchan.
