Kara Tointon; ‘Singing jazz in The Halcyon was so much fun!’

Kara Tointon has loved flexing her vocal cords as fun-loving hotel jazz singer Betsey Day in ITV’s new drama The Halcyon, which is set in a London hotel during the war.

The former EastEnders actress, who last sang on TV when she played Maria in The Sound of Music Live last Christmas, has relished the challenge of singing hits from the era as well as original songs that have been penned for the series.
