Andile Gumbi has big plans for himself in 2013.

It’s time to wave goodbye to 2012, a year filled with cheerleaders, paperboys, porn stars and Patti. Before the big ball drops in Times Square, decided to poll your favorite Broadway stars to get their take on the high point of the year we’re leaving behind—and what they’re hoping is in store for the year ahead! Find out what the stars had to say about their resolutions for 2013.

ANDILE GUMBI (Simba in The Lion King)

Highlight of 2012: “This has been a wonderful year for me. Not only did I get to perform for and meet her Majesty, the Queen of England, but I got to make my Broadway debut with The Lion King. As we all know, Broadway is the Mount Everest of the theater industry. Now I have reached the top of the mountain. It is my greatest achievement so far, and I am very proud of myself.”

Resolution for 2013: “As I've only been here for three months, my New Year's resolution is to get to know the city of New York as much as I can. It is an amazing city, one of the best in the world. Also, continue trying to network as much as I can with agents, directors, everybody and anybody who can have a positive contribution to my career. Also I am applying for a green card; that's another thing I'm working hard on.”
