I believe this was her first major role but I think it was clear even then that she was a star in the making.
Here are a couple of snippets from reviews written by the 'British Theatre Guide' and 'Get Surrey':
British Theatre Guide
'Another one making a professional debut is third year student Faye Brookes as Princess Jasmine – sweetly pretty as befits a Princess & with a beautiful singing voice.'
'Emma Thornett in the role of Aladdin and Faye Brookes as Princess Jasmine, contribute to the glamour with their natural beauty, but they don’t just rely on their looks to give a good performance. As gorgeous as their faces are their voices. With such attributes the dose of sweetness is ensure. Emma and Faye’s good sense of measure make sure that far from being sickening the tale of their story is exciting.'
If I'd been lucky enough to see that show I'd have started the blog 6 years ago. Just from these short clips it's obvious Faye is supremely talented & destined to be a star.
Enjoy the video's, the last one feature's Faye performing a beautiful rendition of the Barry Manilow hit' Sweet Heaven (I'm In Love Again):
