I just got it, and it's a very big part, so I'm esctatic :cool1:
What plays have you read this year (not textbooks)?
Romeo and Juliet (does that count?), and Company for a class.
How do you feel about Shakespeare?
It's very cool. I take drama in school, so I had to memorize the whole, "O Romeo, Romeo" speech. It's was fun.
Have you ever done any film/tv?
Nopers. But my dad's a news reporter, so I've made some apperances ;)
If so, what?
Just answered de question.
Who is your favourite actor? Why?
These next two are quite hard. I guess my favorite actor is Norbert Leo Butz, because I've followed him in all his shows, and seen how amazing he really is as a performer.
Actress? Why?
Well, that's a bit easier. Idina Menzel. Love her and her work, all of it. She's a very talented singer and actress.
Have you ever done any directing or behind the scenes things?
Yes. Before my own rehearsal started, I would stage manage the little kids, ages 7-12 :eek: I stage managed School House Rock Jr., Once Upon A Time, The Fall of Freddy the Leaf, Sealed With a Kiss, and most recently, High School Musical, which was only 12 and 13 year olds. That actually was a lot harder, but I still loved it. So now I'm taking a break from behind the scenes for a little bit, and focusing on my new part in Millie!

Love Shakespeare :love: Great charaters, timeless themes.
Have you ever done any film/tv?
nooope
If so, what?
^
Who is your favourite actor? Why?
Leonardo DiCaprio, because he is so versatile and can play virtually any character, from Romeo, to Jack Dawson, to a South African diamond smuggler, to a mentally challenged boy, and a boston undercover cop.
He uses his fame to help to environment as well.
Actress? Why?
Kate Winslet, she is my inspiration. One of the reasons I want to act. I think she is beautiful and natural and amazing. She is one of the, if not THE best actress of our time. She brings every character she plays to life and compeltely captures her audiences.
She doesnt care what critics say and you can tell that she has so much passion for what she does.
Have you ever done any directing or behind the scenes things?
Artisitic Director for my schools Theatre Night (which is a compliation of scenes done anually) I pretty much had full responsibility of that show. It was amazing.
Helped stage manage past Theatre Nights, directed hopscotch, scenery for R&G are dead, wrote scenes for a comedy show that my friends & i put on.


**the fact that my favourite actor/actress are the stars of titanic is completely coindidental.
though i (clearly) love that movie, i like them for their other works as well.

I have done building and painting thoug [we are required to do so many hours as actors, its tons of fun though] I have alot of respect for all techies, I have seen them struggle and try to make my director happy, and she isn't happy untill everything is PERFECT and PERKY.

Techies are awesome. Like, when I was little and I performed, they were just there. But now, I see what a tough job it is! I had to do sound at the VERY last minute for High School Musical, and it is not easy, especially with about 15 minutes before show time of training! And working with the 12 and 13 year olds while doing sound can be tough, because for some of them, it's their first onstage experience, and they won't help you out by giving good cues or sticking to the script. They're nervous and excited, so they sped up and made mistakes, which is fine for them, but it made my job harder. And I was head stage manager at the time too, so I was on the headset half the time, yelling at my assistants to pick up the blue tape that just rolled across the stage! Anyway. It's hard. Props for techies! And I'm sticking to acting for now :) but it feels good to know I went through that, so I'll always be able to do it again :thumbsup2
