What has been the highlight of your acting career to date?
Obviously the highlight has to be working on ‘Coronation Street’ for 10years, working with the most amazing actors, directors, producers and crew.
What was it like to be in ‘Coronation Street’?
It changed my life completely - it’s a national intuition!
What attracted you to this production?
‘Beyond Therapy’ is such a well-written play by Christopher Durang, dealing with so many issues. The comedy and the part of Prudence and her journey is what attracted me to this play.
How is your character like you or different to you?
I always have to find myself in every character I play. I have to find their true emotions as a starting place and build the character from there.
What do you love/hate about your character?
I love Prudence’s spirit and vulnerability!
What is your favourite line from the play?
My favourite line (at the moment - although I’m sure it will change as we get into rehearsals) is:- “A two minute roll in the hay with you, where you make no distinction between sexual intercourse and push-ups and then a happy evening of admiring your underarm hair and your belt buckles.”
Do you think you would make a good therapist?
I don’t believe I’d make a good therapist because I’d be too out spoken, but I’d be a lot better than Stuart Therapists in this play (played by Matt Lapinskas)!
What do you love doing most outside of theatre?
When I’m not working in the theatre, I love to see my sons and walk my dog Myla.
Who would love this play and why should they come to see it?
Everyone should come and watch ‘Beyond Therapy’ for a wonderful evening of mixed emotions - but mostly laughter. It really is an hilarious comedy - edgy, witty and laugh out loud funny.
I look forward to seeing you all there!
