Rose Robinson can be seen on stage at the Young Vic until 31 Jan. Here are her answers to our 11 Questions…
Can you describe your character in Golem in three words?
Joy: enthusiastic, innocent, baritone
Gran: matriarchal, mischievous, warm
What are you usually doing 10 minutes before the show begins?
I’m generally having some sweets. Marshmallows were the fave for a while but now I’m on Tangfastics.
What is your favourite play (seen, read or worked on)?
The Chairs by Ionesco. I was in it with one of my best friends at university, playing a 95 year old couple whose home gets overrun with invisible guests.
What is your favourite midnight snack?
It’s a sort of controversial omelette called a Sportsbrek, involving oats, eggs, spring onions, cherry toms and chorizo…oh and peas.
If days were 28 hours long, what would you do with the 4 extra hours?
I’m a great faffer, so I’d probably do lots more faffing, have a couple more Sportsbreks, and watch a spot of Community. In an ideal world, I’d walk a dog on a heath.
If you could be in a room full of any one thing, what would it be?
Blue slush puppy.
Favourite holiday you’ve ever been on?
California with my family aged 10. I nearly stood on a rattlesnake, we slept in a van and went on a Jaws ride, which remains the scariest thing I’ve ever experienced.
Favourite city and why?
Tokyo, because everyone was incredibly kind, the food was off the charts, and I felt like Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation.
What is your favourite song?
The Lamb by Taverner
If you could have been born in any era, which would it be and why?
Victorian. I love the mix of pickpockets, filthy coffee houses and music halls.
If you could have any one supernatural power which would you choose and why?
