West End artist flees Airbnb for fear on stage tour after ‘spooky’ encounter

Layton Williams left his Airbnb this morning on a UK theatrical tour because he was too “scared” to stay.

The West End star, also known for several TV series, is currently playing the title role in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie in Newcastle.

Layton took to Twitter on Friday (October 29) to share the experience that left him “actually pissed off”, as he repeatedly heard knocking on his door late at night.

Traveling the country to entertain theater audiences, the Bad Education star regularly uses the Airbnb service, but fans have found out where he was staying.

On Twitter, Layton wrote: “People have NO limits ??? Last night at 12:30 am I heard knocking on my door @Airbnb_uk for a good 5 minutes.

“I ignored because it was late and I was scared … I checked earlier because I don’t feel safe and found this.”

He shared an image in the tweet which showed a schedule for the show, a pen and a torn piece of paper with a message.

The message appears to be from Layton “fans” addressed to “Flat 1”.

It is handwritten: “We came to see the show on Tuesday it was great! Although we are now in the wrong books with my brother … Please could you sign this to Logan so that we can give it to him? “

Left outside his door, Layton tweeted: “Are you f ** king crazy? How dare you!”

According to a subsequent tweet, this is the third time on tour that he has to leave his excavations because he does not feel safe. He tweeted that he was “tired and overwhelmed”.

Other artists and celebrities have shown their support and anger for Layton, including Coronation Street star Anthony Cotton.

The I’m a Celebrity star wrote: “Your @JamieMusical tour producers have to come here and put you in a hotel for a few weeks to restore your balance. No question.”

Reassuringly, Layton is now safe and replied, “They did it and they will and I am very grateful to them.”

An artist tweeted: “Some of you really think we are caged animals here for your 24/7 entertainment. When we come out of the theater we don’t belong to you, admit it. don’t go see the artists digging / houses and knocking on their door like WTF !!!! “

Another wrote that it was “stalker behavior”

The artists tell fans “please don’t do this”.

Layton is scheduled to perform in Newcastle through October 30 as part of the Everybody’s Talking About Jamie UK tour, which runs through April 2022.

The show based on the real-life story of a teenage boy who dreams of being a drag queen “interrupted” his run in the West End in September of this year.

Layton is also featured in the BBC’s The Cleaner and as a guest judge in I Like the Way U Move.
