Gyuri Sarossy is currently playing Gustav in Creditors at the Young Vic. Here are his answers to our 11 Questions…
Can you describe your character in Creditors in three words?
Unrelenting, loving, pure.
What are you usually doing 10 minutes before the show begins?
Getting my head in the game.
What is your favourite play (seen, read or worked on)?
Coriolanus – applies to all three of the above.
What is your favourite word?
Crepuscular – animals are those that are active primarily during twilight (i.e., dawn and dusk).
If days were 28 hours long, what would you do with the 4 extra hours?
Read. Sleep. Swim. Eat. And learn the piano.
If you could be in a room full of any one thing, what would it be?
My best pals.
Favourite holiday you’ve ever been on?
Inter-railing aged 18. A proper coming-of-age adventure.
Favourite city and why?
Has to be London. Where all life and possibility is. Which sometimes makes it seem impossible and overwhelming. At which point go and sit by the Thames.
What is your favourite song?
Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd
If you could have been born in any era, which would it be and why?
16th Century Hungary to connect with my Transylvanian roots. Riding the plains and fending off the Ottomans. Failing that, ancient Athens – where it all began.
If you could have any one supernatural power which would you choose and why?
Power of flight. Easy.
