This, That & All The Other

Welcome to my mind palace

Q: Why did you want to accept the part of Tesman in Hedda Gabler? 

A: I wanted the challenge of making Tesman a sympathetic three-dimensional character and to give him the integrity that is often overlooked, to try to honour Ibsen’s intentions. Tesman has a genuine love of his wife born out of respect. Hedda is above him socially and he wants to be a worthy match for her. He hero-worships her, thinks she’s fantastic, beautiful and a great catch.

Q: What’s the funniest thing that’s happened in the run to date?

A: I got shouted at by a front row octogenarian one night at the curtain call. He said: “Leave her, leave her, leave her!” There’s also a fantastic moment every night when Eilert Loevborg (played by Jamie Sives) takes a drink and the audience never fails to gasp.
