Meet the Cast – Tom Woodward

Tom

Give us your full name and the character you are playing.
Tom Woodward – The Fat Prince, Lavrenti, and many many others.

Where in the UK are you from?
Newtown, Mid-Wales

What was your first theatrical experience, either on stage or in the auditorium?
My first memory on stage is playing a boy who lost his teddy in a ‘Safeway’ supermarket…original.

What was your first experience of Brecht?
I was lucky enough to be Lazarus’s first production of Chalk Circle last year, this was the first time I had ever come into contact with Mr Brecht.

What was your first experience of The Caucasian Chalk Circle?
See above!

What was your first thought when you heard about a production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle?
Interesting title.

Tell us the title of your favourite play?
I honestly can’t pick one, but I saw Mary Stuart at the Almeida earlier this year, I’d be happy to throw that in the mix.

Who is your theatrical inspiration?
It changes week to week. I saw Tom Rhys Harries play ‘Cosmo’ is The Pitchfork Disney last month and he blew me away. I’m always inspired by people’s work.

If you had to choose, who is your favourite actor?
I don’t have one but I’m on a big Ruth Wilson buzz at the mo. Love her in Luther, The Affair, and I saw her in Hedda at the National, I think she’s one of the best out there.

What’s your favourite party game?
I was introduced to ‘In the manner of’ over the Christmas holiday and  could not stop laughing, but I think the alcohol prior heightened the fun!
