As well as performing you are experienced in writing, directing and producing. In what position is it most difficult for you to find or assess the ‘right’ character in auditions ? When casting your own material it always takes time and can be difficult. My feeling is, that’s where the directing process begins, establishing a cast who will make your job easier. If you could have a photograph of anyone in history at any age, who would you select? Bob Marley Who has been your most enjoyable person to act with so far? Carey Mulligan Discounting weapons and physically dangerous…

Rosie Day

What is a moment you’d like to relive? There are so many. I’m in my head a lot so I like to relive memories. The 3 months I spent in Rome with Sarah Jessica Parker were truly magical, the time I spent in Barcelona with my own American girl gang was really special, my family’s reactions to me telling them anything exciting is hilarious. Every moment where I laughed so hard I couldn’t breathe. What is a moment you can’t remember but you’d like to? My biggest talent/ downfall is I have an insane memory. I can literally remember conversations…

Susan Wokoma

What was the last thing or object you found that you kept? I found a little teddy bear in Brockwell Park the other week and I was premenstrual and it was very cute and it had been a long day so I took it home, gave it a nice hot bath and now he lives in a drawer.   What is the last film you saw that you consequently classified as a classic? Probably I, Daniel Blake – me and many other cinema goers at my screening were inconsolable during the end credits. A woman came over and gave me a hug it was that guttural…

Oliver Coopersmith

Who is your favourite public figure to watch interviews of?  There’s loads, I’m a sucker for The Graham Norton Show. I haven’t missed an episode in years. What part of your family history did you find interesting or surprising to learn? My dad had to stop for petrol when my mum was in labour with my brother. It didn’t go down well. Would you rather give advice to yourself 10 years ago or receive advice from yourself 10 years in the future? Receive advice from myself 10 years in the future. Although I’m sure that person would say the same thing. What…

Katie Leung

Who do you know who has the ‘best’ voice – and qualify what your standards are for them being ‘best’ Sara Kestelman who I worked with recently in a production at Hampstead Theatre has a magnificent voice which resonated effortlessly in the space on stage, piercing through the soul without the need for volume/ shouting. She also happens to be an incredible actress. What was the last habit that you took up and the last one that you’ve given up? Taken up menthols. Given up coffee. If the last three places you read about or watched became a travel itinerary,…

Millie Brady

What book/ movie/ TV show do you think you’ve recommended more than any other? Philomena, The Help and Big Little Lies probably are my most recent big 3 for recommendations. What are you happy that happened while you were alive and at an age where you could/ can understand and remember? Being taught to read is a personal memory that’s so important to me and one I remember vividly. On a wider scale, I’m happy to have been able to witness the outcry from women across the world for equal rights and see everyone come together for the Women’s Marches.…

Sophie Rundle

Is there anything you’ve been happy or nonplussed to lose or miss out on? I did one of those 1 week intensive driving courses and didn’t pass my test. In hindsight I think its a good thing, I was nowhere near ready. I shouldn’t be allowed in charge of a moving vehicle. If you could commission any painter in sculptor in history for a project, who would you pick and what would you have them render? I’d love to have my portrait done like those great oil paintings of formidable looking women that hang in National Trust properties. I’d like…
