1. Award-Winning Productions
The Broadway productions of ‘Wolf Hall’ and ‘Bring Up the Bodies’ saw Joey Batey’s participation, as he was fortunate enough to be cast in them. Both are based on works of fiction by Hilary Mantel. Joey stars as Mark Smeaton in both productions, and it should be noted that ‘Bring Up the Bodies’ is actually part two of ‘Wolf Hall’. The novels have earned Tony, Olivier, Man Booker, and BAFTA awards.
2. His Personal Life
As of the date of this writing Joey has goals other than satisfying his love life. He aims to become one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood, and from what we can see so far, he is heading in the right direction. However, these things don’t happen overnight, and so he is foregoing having a girlfriend, wife, or children in favor of focusing his full attention on his career. Well, it’s better be established when one weds than to have to get established after the wedding, they say.
3. His Early Life
Joey was born on January 1, 1993, an only child to his parents, in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. He is a Capricorn, born in the Year of the Rooster. Sources say that he has a very close relationship with both his father and his mother. He attended school in his local area, and after graduation he enrolled at University of Cambridge, where he majored in Medieval and Modern Languages.
4. ‘The Witcher’: His Big Break
For those of you who don’t know, ‘The Witcher’ is a Netflix Original Series which Joey co-stars in, and it is actually a show based on the game ‘The Witcher’. In the show, the witcher Geralt is ‘a mutated monster hunter’ whose life takes him traveling from place to place as he tries to find his place in a time where man is the enemy. Joey plays the role of Jaskier, a character who has a penchant for pranking and is something of a ‘trickster’, as they call him. This American series is proving to be a big break for Joey, as his fanbase grows and he is able to make a name for himself in the USA industry.
5. Zodiac and Star Sign Traits
Being a child of the Year of the Rooster means that you are likely very faithful, and with that, you are always on time, as the two go hand in hand. They are creative individuals with a high level of intelligence and a great capacity as communicators. They have quick minds, warm hearts, and practice self-respect. Because Joey was born on January 1, he is also a Capricorn. Capricorn men seem to come off to others as being peaceful and laid back, but the truth is that he is constantly taking notice, and he is constantly thinking about everything in and around him. The Capricorn is one who will not be laid barren by his circumstances; he will find away to take victory over them and come out on top in the end.
