Confirmed appearances include Cynthia Gibb (Holly Laird), Lee Curreri (Bruno Martelli), Nia Peeples (Nicole Chapman) ,P.R. Paul (Montgomery McNeil, Valerie Landsburg (Doris Schwarz), Jessie Borrego (Jessie Velasquez), and Carlo Imperarto (Danny Amatullo).
It’s amazing to be able to reveal that the fabulous fourth cast member to jump on board the Fame Express is none other than the magical Lee Curreri! Lee played the shy and sensitive musical genius Bruno Martelli in seasons 1-3 #daretodream #fameukreunion https://t.co/BpIKxX4TCV

UPDATE: Erica Gimpel (Coco Hernandez) has been announced as the eighth and final cast member.
According to the official Facebook reunion page: “We are hoping there will be a very big announcement after the summer, when the important exciting details will be unveiled. We can tell you that whatever we put together will take place over the Bank Holiday weekend (3rd – 6th May 2019) so if you need leave from work, get it booked now and save the date so you will be free to take part in the ride of a lifetime. Oh and start saving too! This will be a charity event so we are looking to raise as much money as possible for a wonderful U.K. Children’s charity.”
The Kids from FAME previously reunited last year in Los Angeles for the show’s 35th anniversary and in 2011, performing in Italy.
