June 25, 2013
Thriller Live cast members today unveiled Madame Tussauds’ newest wax figures, not one, not two, but three stunning Michael Jacksons. David Jordan, Britt Quentin and ten year old Eshun Gopal, were given a sneak peak of the figures before they take up residence in the attraction from Tuesday 25th June.
The figures, which portray Jackson as a young boy in his Jackson 5 days, a more mature King of Pop in his Dangerous era and in his later ‘This is It’ incarnation will remain united in the attraction for three months. Fans can also see unique archive materials from his long relationship with Madame Tussauds.
“We were extremely lucky to enjoy a very special relationship with Michael Jackson and he was a big fan of Madame Tussauds,” said Nicole Fenner, PR Manager for the world famous attraction. “He gave sittings to our studio team and as well as personally unveiling a figure at the height of his fame in 1985 he paid private visits to the attraction also. These figures span the breadth of his career and we hope fans will agree they are a fitting tribute. And where better to reveal them for the first time than on the stage of Thriller Live! – the ultimate celebration of his music!” she added.
David, Britt and Eshun were suitably impressed by the likeness. “The figures look so lifelike, it was fantastic to be able to dance with them on stage with me – I’m really jealous of young Michael’s yellow outfit!” commented ten-year-old Eshun. Britt observed, “I think the facial detail is absolutely stunning – it’s like actually looking at Michael, the skintone is captured perfectly”. David shared in Eshun and Britt’s enthusiasm, adding “I think it’s great that fans are able be face-to-face with Michael – these figures look exactly as he did, so it feels like you’re actually meeting him. I’m honoured they’re here on our stage – at the end of the day, we put the show on for him!”
