Rebecca Faeryn
Role: Timandra

Hello Rebecca. Thank you so much for talking to us today. I'll kick off very simply, as this is a Shakespeare feature film, by asking what the best Shakespeare performance you've seen is?

I’ve seen a number of Shakespeare plays at the Globe, as I’ve lived in London nearly all my life. I think my favourite has to be "A Midsummer Nights’ Dream" performed by the RSC in 2012. It was also the first Shakespeare play I ever saw, when I was about 5 years old, when a group of actors performed it at my school. So it has a special place in my heart.

Did you have any experience with "Timon of Athens" before this project?

Role: Timon

Do you recall what your first ever Shakespeare role was and can you tell us your thoughts on your first performance?

Hmm... have to cast the mind back for this one! I recall a workshop on “Macbeth” at school, but I think my first professional performance was as Mercutio in “Romeo and Juliet”. I remember doing what I thought might work, but without much actual knowledge about acting! I think it was very exterior – someone in the cast said “Like a Christmas Tree, lots on the outside, but not much inside!” Anyway, I guess there was something inside as I got some very nice critiques and I learned a lot from the production (I played the same character twice more during subsequent years).

You have been incredibly prolific with Shakespeare in your career, more so than any other cast member. What draws you to Shakespeare again and again?
