ACTOR Q&A

How are you and your character(s) similar/different? We both could be a bit spacey at times, and we both love snacks. We are different in the sense that Gatto is greedy and follows Volpe’s commands, where in real life I like to think I am the complete opposite!

After reading the script, what message/moral did you come away with? Don’t lie!

Favorite line your character says? I like the rapping I get to do in the music!

What is involved in playing multiple characters? Lots of costumes and quick changes backstage!

Do you prepare any differently when playing multiple characters in a production? I have to create different characteristics and different looks and voices for each character!
