There is a reason Liverpool is nicknamed The Pool of Talent. The Liverpool City Region is a hub of talent with highly successful people coming from all six of the Region's Boroughs; brimming with writers, actors, directors, artists, dancers and comedians. When people think of famous Liverpudlians from the Liverpool Region; their mind is immediately drawn to people that are frequently named such as Paul McCartney, Cilla Black, Taron Egerton, Steven Gerrard, John Bishop, Daniel Craig and Jamie Carragher. I have selected successful people that you may just not realise are from the Region.
