A couple of years ago, Ellis was one of the musical artists invited by Sir Andrew Lloyd-Webber to perform for Queen Elizabeth and the Royal Family at London's St. Paul's Cathedral as part of The Best of Andrew Lloyd-Webber. "I got to sing two solo songs, which was pretty neat," he says. "First of all, singing at St.Paul's with its acoustics, history, architecture, etc. is just incredible, and to then have the Queen and the Royal Family there to meet afterwards made for a truly unforgettable night.
"It was many years later, but my childhood TV experience of singing for Princess Diana came around full circle as well," adds the actor. "It was, I think, the third preview of the musical Miss Saigon where I got to meet her backstage and found her to be a really lovely person."
Currently, this verstile entertainer is keeping busy with a few new projects, including the recurring role of Simon Cochran on the TNT series Trust Me, and a guest-spot on Nip/Tuck. "I've been back in the prosthetics chair again for that show, but only for a couple of hours," says Ellis. "I have a writing partner in England and we've written a couple of things that seem to be moving forward. So I've been very lucky work-wise and, touch wood, long may it continue."
