Why did you want to be involved in this production?
I think I just really was intrigued by the show and working with awesome fun people. Theater is cool like that, you form a community and then you’re kind of hooked. Like a second family, that you don’t get to blame genetics for. It’s all your own fault.
Call someone out by name: who must come see this production?
Well since I apparently have some sort of curse that gives the people I call out an extremely bad case of the stomach flu, I shall call NO ONE out. That way – everyone comes!! And no one gets the stomach flu… which is nice too, I guess.
Who in the show is most like their character?
I think the person most like their character is me. Because I don’t actually play a character, so I’m most like my own character. Which is easy to be.
Who’s the least?
I suppose Alex is least like his character. Because he remembers his name (most of the time) AND he is not female.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I’d like to be a unicorn-dragon. That wish still stands from the last round of interview questions.
If someone was going to make your life into a movie, who would play you?
Angela Kinsey, who is the lady that plays Angela in The Office. She is short and blonde and funny. Which is all you need to be in life.
Besides this one, what’s your favorite stage show?
I saw Red when I was in Copenhagen, and I absolutely loved it. Granted it wasn’t in English. But that’s ok because I speak Danish. You probably wouldn’t have liked it as much though…
Who do you look up to (as an actor/director/etc.)?
The answer to this will always be Emma Thompson. I love her in everything – Sense & Sensibility when she cries from complete happiness that the love of her life is not married – Stranger Than Fiction when she spits in napkins and puts her cigarettes out that way – The fact that she wrote an original and moral children’s movie… and all her amazing work with Kenneth Branaugh. She’s so cool.
What’s your perfect Sunday afternoon look like?
Well first off I’m gonna need some sort of time extender. Because I’ll want to cram a lot of stuff into the “perfect” afternoon. First, I re-read the entire Harry Potter Series, then I look up and “BAM” I’m the only person in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Which now also happens to be located in Ireland. Because that’s a much cooler place than Orlando. Frikkin Orlando… Anyways, then Rupert Grint shows up in his ice cream truck (look it up, he owns one) and we just ride around the park pretending to be wizards. He’s totally in on it and not weirded out, by the way. After that, I steal his ice cream truck (Ha Rupert! Bet you didn’t see that one coming) and I trek on over to Stonehenge. Where I have a magical time with a bunch of free ice cream … well, technically stolen ice cream. After that, a simple hop and a skip over the pond and I’m in Denmark having afternoon coffee and pastries with the whole cast of Nunsense – because let’s not deprive them of Danish pastries, that would be cruel.
When you have a five-minute break during rehearsal, what do you spend that time doing?
I don’t have breaks, because I am a super human that never stops working. Or Reddit. One of those two.
Who’s the funniest person in the cast in real life?
I think the entire cast is funny – they have to be for this show. But also Eric, our sound tech, but that’s just because he thinks cake pops are made from cake batter. HAHhahah! They aren’t, we googled it. It was a big thing.
What do you do when you’re not doing theatre?
I read and work and cook and try to write and be creative. I also pet my cats a lot. They take up more of my time than they should. I lead a pretty boring life actually.
If you had a magic wand, what show would you do next?
I don’t know which show I would put on with a magic wand… and honestly ( and I will probably be stoned to my death for saying this with Theater friends all around) I don’t think the first thing that would pop into my head would be which show to do. If I had a magic wand there would be other things happening first. Cheezits would no longer exist. They are disgusting and don’t deserve a place in this world. Maybe after their eradication I would put on The Lion King or Wicked. Heck I’ve got a magic wand- I’d put on both!
