Kevin Chew plays slick con-man ‘Diamond’ Louie Paluso in His Girl Friday; this is his first show with Bygone.
Bio: Kevin is extremely excited to add Louie to the already long list of nefarious sketch-bags he has played both on stage and in real life. He takes inspiration for such individuals from all aspects of his life but mostly from his friends and fellow artists. This one’s for you kid (you know who you are).
How did you hear about Bygone Theatre and this production of His Girl Friday?
I heard about Bygone Theatre and this production through our leading lady Cass Van Wyck!
What made you want to be involved? what do you love about the story?
The thing I like most about the story is the eclectic mix of characters and the huge cast. I really wanted to be a part of a large cast and get that big family feel from doing a show like this.
What’s your favourite old movie?
Enter the Dragon
Have you been in a show like this before? What else might people have seen you in recently?
Nothing like this recently. Most recently on stage (well kind of on stage) was Sex Tape Project in 2015 with fuGen theatre. Most recently on t.v one might have seen me during a Jays game as a TD banker making a stupid face. Acting can be tough sometimes.
Why should people come and see the show?
For the sweet sweet sound of old timey New York accents and because if they don’t they just might get a visit from Louie Paluso for a little chit chat.
See Kevin onstage March 2-5, 2017, at the Aki Studio, Daniels Spectrum.
