A Scotch Egg with Branston Pickle on the side.

Walking out on stage for the RSC for the first time.
If days were 28 hours long, what would you do with the 4 extra hours?
Do I get another meal with those 4 hours…?
If you could be in a room full of any one thing, what would it be?
Favourite holiday you’ve ever been on?
Sylvan Lake, Alberta Canada.
Favourite city and why?
London. Just pips New York. It’s home and never ceases to amaze me.
What is your favourite song?
A rather rude Luton Town song about Tony Thorpes mum.
If you could have been born in any era, which would it be and why?
Bit contrived but the 1600s. Shakespearean London would have been a great time. (Apart from the low life expectancy and basically living in filth.)
If you could have any one supernatural power (flying, being invisible), which would you choose and why?
To be able to go back in time maybe…? There’s a few people I would love to have a look at.
Mad About the Boy is at the Young Vic 6 – 16 June. Book your tickets here.
