Who inspired you growing up?

When I was 15 I joined the National Youth Theatre for a summer season, By the autumn, I knew I wanted to perform - and I'm proud to still be an associate member.
What is The Starry Messenger about?
Love, hope, fate and our place in the universe.
Why did you want to be part of this production?
Who do you play? What's your favourite thing about them?
Mrs Pysner - she has a very inquiring mind.
How are rehearsals going?
Very well, thank you.
How is being in a smaller company compared to a show like Les Mis?
Well, there are fewer names to learn!
Any advice for aspiring actors?
Look up from your phone! "There is a world elsewhere...".
Who of the characters you've played, would you invite round for a dinner party and what would you serve?
Edith Piaf, Mrs Lovett, Sarraghina and some of the dispossessed from the Weimar Republic and the music hall... There would be a very large cheese platter!
Why should people come to The Starry Messenger?
It's a very thoughtful, gently comedic play from a wonderful writer.
