Q&A Highlights!
Graham Cole
Q: What is the most annoying part about your job?
A: Auditioning, never gets any easier, trying to get into the mind of those in front of you, knowing what is required of the role but convincing them you are the one.
Kerry Ellis
Q: What was your first stage performance?
A: I actually performed at the Wolsey theatre in 'The Wizard of Oz' as a munchkin when I was 9! It's amazing how things turn out. Professionally my first West End show was 'My Fair Lady' at the National Theatre.
Harry Shearer
Q: What has been your most embarrassing moment?
A: As a child actor, I came out onstage in the warm-up for the Jack Benny Show when I heard the announcer beckon me from the wings. Except he hadn't said 'Harry", he'd said "Mary", introducing Jack Benny's wife. I got a big laugh, and I was mortified.
Lloyd Owen
Q: What's the best advice you've ever received?
A: A friend quoting Walter Matthau to me, "All a guy needs in this business?.....Fifty lucky breaks".
Arthur Darvill
Q: If you had not become a performer, what might you have done instead?
A: As a kid I wanted to become an archaeologist, after watching 'Indiana Jones' on repeat. When I was on the dole, the Job Centre got me a position as a 'Wildlife Demonstrator' in schools. However, I got an acting job just before this was due to take place. But that could have been me!
