When Socha was 12, his mother read in a local newspaper about a play being cast by the Chellaston Youth Players. She asked her son and daughter if they wanted to try out for it, and both did. Sochau0027s motivation for auditioning was his anger at being denied a role in the musical and his desire to prove his teachers wrong about his acting skills.
