AUGUST RUSH

LEON THOMAS III (Arthur) made his theatrical debut at age 10 in 2003 as Young Simba in the Broadway production of "The Lion King.” In 2004, he appeared as Jackie Thibodeaux in the original Broadway cast of Tony Kushner's "Caroline or Change.” He also toured with the company during its five-month run in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

While in California, Thomas booked his first television show, TEENick's "Just for Kicks,” where he played the role of Ty Atwood. Additionally, he is the singing voice of Tyrone the orange moose on season two of the award-winning Nick Jr. show "The Backyardigans.” His other recent television credits include guest appearances on "Jack's Big Music Show,” "Just Jordan” and "iCarly.”

In December 2005, Thomas became an original cast member of his third Broadway play, "The Color Purple.” He left that show to make his film debut in "August Rush.”

A third generation musician, Thomas was exposed to music at a young age since his parents, professional musicians, owned a recording studio where a number of famous musicians recorded. Thomas plays drums, bass, piano, saxophone and, now, guitar, which he mastered for his role in "August Rush.”
