Salma Hayek Feels the ‘Electricity’ of Billy Elliot in Boston

August 1st, 2012 | By Staff

The British mining town where Billy Elliot takes place got some unexpected Latin flair when screen star Salma Hayek visited the national tour on July 29. The Academy Award nominee took in the matinee performance at the Boston Opera House with her daughter Valentina and a friend. After the show, the actress, who stars in Oliver Stone’s summer hit Savages, posed with cast members (left to right) Cameron Clifford, Noah Parets, Cal Alexander, Ben Cook, Jacob Zelonky, Rich Hebert and Zach Manske. Hayek seemed smitten with the story of a young boy who stumbles into a ballet class, discovering a surprising passion that inspires his family and struggling community. Check out this Hot Shot captured by Glenn Cook, then get your tickets to see Billy dance!
