1) What is your full name, and who do you play?
Charlotte Mafham – I play Cassandra (in T+C) and Virgilia (in Coriolanus)
2) What was your fist experience of theatre?
I remember going to see my big brother perform and having a nap under the seat with my teddy bear, but I was only 5!
I’m a big fan of strong female performers so Fiona Shaw, Harriet Walter and Juliet Stevenson are all up there!
I’ve loved all the physical and group work we do to really gel as a company and I hope it shows in our performances how much we listen and respond as an ensemble.
The Young Vic is having another triumphant year. Both Happy Days and A View from the Bridge were sensational.
Lady Macbeth is perhaps an obvious one but I’d love to get into the mind of a ‘villain’ – to discover what drives their actions – so Iago, Edmund and Tamora are all on the list too!
My wonderful Mum. She’s unswervingly supportive, smart and fun; she’s my best mate.
Red velvet. Might look fiery but essentially just soft!
That Shakespeare can be fun! Even if it’s a tragedy, people should enjoy being caught up in the drama. The language shouldn’t be a barrier to experiencing the story – it’s our job to make it accessible – so I definitely hope we achieve that.
Ooh I’m torn between chess and Monopoly – they’re both epic and can last for days!
