‘There is nothing like that feeling when the lights go up, and everyone’s eyes are focused on the stage.‘
What are you most looking forward to about this season?
I’m most looking forward to getting back on stage and exploring such an iconic play in such a bold and interesting way! We’ve missed live theatre so much, it’s going to be very special for everyone to come together once again. And also… the wigs.
If you could use only one word to describe this production of Hamlet, what would it be?
Describe your character in 3 words.
Creative, loving, empathetic.
What was the last theatre performance you went to see?
The last thing I saw was a beautiful piece called ‘Fiona and the Fox’ at the Iris Theatre in Covent Garden. It was written and performed by the incredible Wild Geese Theatre Company. It was truly moving and magical.
What have you missed most about performing to a live audience?
There is nothing like that feeling when the lights go up, and everyone’s eyes are focused on the stage. The atmosphere is electric. Who will speak first? What will happen? There is something so joyous and fun about performing to a live audience. We need them, and the challenge is to keep their imagination flowing for as long as possible. There’s no feeling like it for me.
