Oh dear, it’s been two months since my last article! Well, I’m back with some news on what I’ve been up to in the acting world.
Playing Carol Cutrere in Orpheus Descending last month was a fantastic experience, as I think I overcame some fears I had. The more you work in front of the camera, the scarier stage becomes, right? Speaking Tennessee Williams’ words with a Louisiana accent is a lot of fun and becoming this loud, proud and damaged woman for a few weeks was a joy. I now have a theory that that’s exactly what my casting is.
Last week I acted in Tiny Kernel of Dark Joy, a short film written and directed by Andrea Ratti, who was 1st AD on Dear Mum. Andrea is definitely someone you can learn film history from, and I respect his passion and the clear vision he can bring to a set. Our cinematographer was Felix Dembinski. The film should be around five to ten minutes long and I play a woman who’s just lost her father and decides to listen to his old records.
I’ve been invited by Beatrice Mori, actress and producer, to perform a monologue at the event “Don’t Judge me by my Accent” this week-end. I’m pleased she thought of me, and this is my chance to perform with a French accent – something I am rarely asked to do. This should be a great night of meeting like-minded people and watching nice pieces of music and theatre. Tickets here.
