Clifford Samuel can currently be seen on stage at the Young Vic in The Guardian’s #1 show of 2013, The Events.  Now in it’s final week in London, Clifford answers our 11 Questions.

What are you usually doing 10 minutes before the show begins?
Brush my teeth, check my mic pack, a bit of skipping prep, a few press ups, less talking, wish my co-star “break a leg!”.

What is your favourite play (seen, read or worked on)?
Very hard to choose… I worked on The Girl in the Yellow Dress by Craig Higginson. Beautifully structure and story.

What is your favourite midnight snack?
Cereal – with lovely cold milk.

What is your favourite word?
Sublime.

Favourite holiday you’ve ever been on?
Tulum, Mexico/Rio de Janeiro.

What is your favourite song?
Cupid by Sam Cooke.

If the days were 28 hours long what would you do with the extra 4 hours?
Continue with some more of my writing and perhaps finish Breaking Bad!

If you could be in a room full of any one thing, what would it be?
Tropical fish.

Favourite city and why?
London. It’s a huge melting pot of different cultures, some incredible, old architecture juxtaposed with new. And because it’s London. Any Londoner knows what I mean…

If you could have been born in any era, which would it be and why?
Late 60s – 70s. Great music and musicians. Flamboyant fashion. Turning point in human rights. Useful technology.

If you could have any one supernatural power which would you choose and why?
Time travel/teleporting.

The Events is on until this Saturday 2 August at the Young Vic, to book tickets here.
