Following its fortnight over at The Stage, Digital Theatre+'s interview with actor Juliet Stevenson is now exclusively available to subscribers.
Juliet's is the second in a new fortnightly series of insightful conversations with legendary performers and theatre-makers about craft and process.
Juliet Stevenson reveals to Digital Theatre+’s Creative Producer, Fiona Lindsay, how she overcame stage-fright by saying yes to the ‘nightmare’ of being buried up to the neck on stage in Samuel Beckett's Happy Days. She discusses the hybridity of inhabiting a character and letting that character inhabit you, and likens imagining the theatrical world to ‘child’s-play’.
Juliet explores how, from birth to death, all the great events of our lives are simultaneously ordinary and extraordinary, and how great writing, great characters and great theatre are no different.
