One week to go and one of the newest members of our cast, Caroline Morahan, reminisces about her first role playing a frog (fire THAT casting director!) and puking. Such a lady.
Have you taken part in THE 24 HOUR PLAYS before?
No, I’m a first-timer! Although I am currently appearing in the Abbey Theatre in She Stoops to Conquer which finishes 31 January. No escape!
What is the most memorable dramatic experience you have had, and why?
Day one on my first professional acting job was pretty memorable and dramatic. I was 15 and so nervous I was physically sick. My dad dropped me to set and I had to get him to pull over more than once en route! It was bad.
When did you first know you wanted to be involved in the performing arts?
When I took to the stage in junior infants to perform “A froggy came a courting.” I was painted green with an empty egg carton on my head for frog’s eyes. This was the best fun ever. [Editor: We’ll pip it next Sunday. Promise.]
Who (living or dead) would you most like to work with?
I would have loved to work with Philip Seymour Hoffman. He’s captivating in every role I’ve ever seen him.
Tell us a little about your next big project.
As soon as I know, I’ll let you know!
What are you anticipating the most about THE 24 HOUR PLAYS?
I’m looking forward to surrendering to the unknown, having fun and getting the chance to work with some amazing artists I have long admired.
Sum up your feelings about THE 24 HOUR PLAYS in five words or less!
MADNESS for one night only!
