TENOR IN High HEELS!

FROM PLAYING A MARINE IN DOGFIGHT TO TOURING WITH THE TEN TENORS, TOBY FRANCIS HAS FOUND HIS FEET – AND THE BOOTS TO MATCH! HE TELLS MATTHEW MYERS ABOUT HOW KINKY BOOTS BECAME THE PERFECT FIT.

DNA: Firstly, how does one prepare to wear kinky boots?

Toby Francis: Obviously I’ve never had to wear heels before so… as best one can! I do Pilates twice a week to strengthen my core, and gym three days, too, to make sure everything is strong and holding me up. I’ve actually got a pair of the boots at home and put them on every so often. I don’t know if I’m meant to be putting them on, but I do.

What is it about the Kinky Boots role that stands out for you?

It’s incredibly relatable to me. At the start, Charlie defines himself as a person by the things that he doesn’t want and slowly transitions into a person defined by things he does want. I had a very similar experience when I was young because at one point in my early twenties I didn’t know where to fit in. It’s very easy to be negative and to make that part of who you are but eventually I came to be more positive. Charlie, to me, is incredibly relatable. And Charlie also sings high like me!

About DNA Magazine

Winter isn’t coming but who knows what will happen when you see our jaw-dropping Game Of Thrones fantasy photo shoot starring Aussie athlete Simon Dunn. DNA #202 is our Entertainment Issue so we revisit the original true story behind James Franco’s latest crime thriller King Cobra. We're treated to the fabulousness of music legend Kate Bush, wonder whatever is happening with Lady Gaga, and look at how gay entertainers have represented and sometime misrepresented us so far this century. We also chat with the star of Kinky Boots in Australia, Toby Francis. Like a few of us in the DNA office, you may have been a little lazy over winter. Luckily, our fitness guru and personal trainer Justin Dulihanty has 10 easy tips on building you a summer body. In fashion Joshua Heath takes a look at some of the hottest items out, just in time for Christmas shopping. Plus we are loving all things eggplant, Pierson Fode's Instagram, Game Of Thrones season 7, New York fashion week and the stage show Dusty! about Ms Springfield. In photography Josh Brando has captured the raw beauty of fitness model Kevin McDaid in an industrial themed photo shoot that will leave you wanting to grab the closest power tool and roll around naked in puddle of oil. DNA does not recommend actioning this desire! Then we hit the beach with an exclusive shoot of the bodylicious Matt Jones by photographer Russell Fleming. Plus loads more!
