Interview with the Tonight I did a few years back and other found things

Just found an old interview I did. Interesting to look back. Fourteen year old me thought the performances in the Harry Potter movies were good *shivers*. But, damn, do I still love acting.

Also, I stumbled across the site for the play I’m talking about in said interview. The play’s called Tree Boy. Acting in it taught me so much about storytelling. And that South Africa has a secret treasure house of unknown but extraordinary theatre-makers.

I remember one day in rehearsals (I was 13) asking how loud I should perform. The director stared at me in silence for a few seconds, then said – with quiet fury – “How long is a piece of a string?”
