Dial M For Murder – Actor Spotlight – Kenton Blythe

Kenton plays Max Halliday in “Dial M For Murder”, his first production with Bygone Theatre.

Kenton Blythe aka Max Halliday

Bio:

Kenton was born in Edmonton, Alberta and is from a small town to the south of it called Beaumont. For the Footloose fans: that is where the hell it is. He has been practicing theatre for a number of years and had spent 2 years at the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton in their Young Musical Company before making the trek to Toronto to study at the Randolph Academy for the preforming arts. He graduated last August. Since graduating Kenton has appeared as Brad in the Rocky Horror Show (Fallen Rock Productions) and more recently Len in Robin Hood: The Legendary Musical Comedy (Hart House). He would like to dedicate this performance to his girlfriend, whose constant love and support are ever present in his life (assuming she has not left him by the time the show goes up.) Love you honey.

1. How did you get started in theatre?

I got started in the theatre when I was thirteen. I was cast as a demon in a Terry Pratchett play. A character with a really long name with no vowels. I remember it sounding like Wix Hertle Jewel Pickles.  Which sounds a bit like a law firm from Oz.

2. What is your favourite part of the creative process?

Performance, naturally.

3. What are some challenges you face as an actor?

Maintaining spontaneity with every line. Sometimes it becomes muscle memory, and there can be only so much magic in that.

4. Any advice you want to give to others pursuing acting?

Know what you want in every scene, know enough about the business side to know when you are being misled and know enough about yourself to not be afraid of what you work on.

5. What are you most excited for in regards to “Dial M For Murder”

I’m excited to solve a murder every night.
