Biography Edit

Before the Show Edit

Theo became the back-up vocalist and bassist in a band with James, John, and Luke.

He presumably developed a crush on Giselle.[2]

Season 1 Edit

Theo performs "Lost and Found" in front of an audience, on-stage, in the studio. Whilst he helps pack up, Theo tells John that his cousin had saved an aardvark. Theo is told by John that he and Luke tried to rescue a raccoon, but did not go well; to this, Theo voices that he thinks raccoons are dangerous. He steps on a cart and glides towards Jude and Leia. Theo sings and plays the bass guitar, in a duet with Hannah (who is also singing, but playing the ukelele) in the Sound Booth.

Theo performs "You'll Always Have Me" with Hannah.

After Theo (and Hannah) performs, Jude enters and attempts to rap about Theo. Theo interrupts Jude by reciting a haiku. Theo enters Java Junction, and is immediately approached by Leia and is told by her that she is sorry that Luke could not perform with her. Theo reveals that Luke does not care at all about the duet with Leia and that, instead, he would be performing a solo.[1]

Luke lies to Michelle: Theo is the person that John's song ("Broken By You") is dedicated to. Alongside the rest of the band, Theo asks Mr. T whether he (and the band) are allowed to use his bass amplifier, for their first performance, that once belonged to Paul McCartney. With the band, Theo boards a bus with all of his equipment, but the bass amplifier.

Theo suddenly realizes that the bass amplifier was left behind, at the kerb.

As the bus starts moving, Theo realizes that they have left the bass amp by the kerb. He goes against retrieving the bass amp, knowing that Mr. T will be angry with them either way and that they do not have enough time to get it before they are set to perform. Unfortunately, later on, Mr. T finds the bass amp by the bus stop. Theo is at John's house with Luke, waiting for John to appear. It is revealed that the performance went terribly (without the bass amp and only had time for half of their performance). Theo (with the band) is set to meet James at the car dealer, to which they are traveling by bus to arrive. With the band, Theo attempts to find a van; Luke finds one, and Theo initially disagrees, but after persuasion from the car dealer, is convinced to purchase the van. Theo sings in the back of the van, whilst Luke drives.[3]

Theo (with the band) is in the Control Room just as Jude enters. With the band, he tries to record a song. Theo is asked by Mr. T what role he shall be playing during auditions for the studio. Later on, Theo practices the rhythm of the song, alongside James, as the part of the music they are playing is the important accompaniment; James struggles and the two are told to take a break by Mr. T. Theo approaches James, who is drumming on the floor of the hallway. Theo asks James what he is doing. He is told by James that when he is having trouble with a dance move, he locks himself in Studio A and practices until it is perfected.

Theo consoles James and admits that he cannot perform a duet without a partner.

Theo consoles James and admits that he cannot perform a duet without a partner and after saying so practices the rhythm with James. Theo performs the song that they are working on and are told that the lyrics need changing. John separates from Luke and Theo to think of lyrics; in the Control Room, Jude thinks that John will think of lyrics first and James thinks that Luke and Theo will think of lyrics first. John thinks of lyrics before Theo and Luke. Later, alongside the band, Theo performs "Best Day" successfully.[4]

Personality Edit

Theo is a jokester who has unorthodox views on love, life, and music. He is very passionate about music, in particular singing, hinted when Luke confesses that when Theo starts singing, he cannot stop.[3] Maggie said in season 2 episode 13 that Theo is one of the most positive people she knows, at lost and found.

Physical Appearance Edit

Theo has light skin, dirty blond hair, and light eyes. He is quite tall and lanky.

Relationships Edit


At first, Theo had a crush on Giselle but then developed feelings for Maggie. In episode 11, Free Bird, Theo and Maggie have a competition to see who can earn the most money from busking. When it comes out a tie, they have another competition to see who can hold a note the longest. We know this because in episode 21 Luke and Maggie performed a duet and Theo describes how well Maggie is singing, saying "Wow, this song's unbelievable. I mean Maggie's so confident and her voice is so beautiful, it's almost indescribable, and I mean Luke's pretty ok too. " Theo becomes jealous of Maggie and Luke and gets mad when he see's Maggie and Luke hug. He plans on telling Maggie how he feels about her in the season finale of the second season. However, before he can do it, Maggie reveals to him that she likes Luke, but that Luke likes Leia.

  1. 1.0 1.1 In "Put You First" (an episode from The Next Step), James confesses that he needs to see Shane and Levi. In "Coming Home?" (another episode from The Next Step) the character who is now referred to as "Luke" was referred to as "Shane," sharing the same name as his actor, Shane Harte. Although John was in the room when James says that he needs to Shane and Levi, it can be presumed that the character's, who is now referred to as "Theo," former name is "Levi." Levi is his actor's (Levi Randall) name, also.
