Tell us a little about Brodie. Brodie definitely beats to the rhythm of a different drum. Coming from a disadvantaged past, he wants to blaze his own path on his own terms while at the same time he is just a scared, gullible young man. Hopefully this dichotomy, simultaneously, makes you dislike, fear and feel sorry for him.
What is your favorite thing about working on The Real Thing? I was excited to work on this project because, due to the nature of my character, most of my development can be done at home rather than in rehearsal, so I get to spend a lot of time at home with my 3 month old daughter while still doing a show. However, I have come to discover how talented this cast is. I am always impressed by the work I see them doing in rehearsals. It excites me when I get to work with such talented people.
What’s your favorite place in New York City? Central Central Park, after a fresh snowfall. And I do mean the center of the park, where the paths turn to dirt and far fewer people venture.
