Unlike other theatre awards, West End Frame only opens voting for one category at a time and combines male and female actors from new and long-running productions into the same categories (where applicable).

The 2015 West End Frame Awards also saw Matt Cardle win Best West End Debut, Jacqueline Hughes win Understudy of the Year and Sunny Afternoon win Most Inspiring West End Show.

The West End Frame Awards will return next month for Understudy of the Year 2016. Watch this space for updates.
