1. How did you get started in theatre?
I started acting in highschool, more as a lark than anything, to complement my training as a singer. Throughout highschool, I found more and more that I liked it and wanted to pursue it as a career.
2. What is your favorite part of the rehearsal process?
Rehearsing. Delving into the script and finding connections with the other actors.
3. What are some challenges you face as an actor?
The fact that I’m just not that talented.
4. Any advice you want to give to others pursuing acting?
Anything anybody is willing to teach you, learn that.
5. What are you most excited for in regards to “Dial M for Murder”?
It’s an incredibly fun and funny group of people that I look forward to getting to know better. And also the material is a lot of fun, and I’m excited about finding all those little moments that can be enhanced with looks, gestures and unexpected profanity.
