  • What was the role that changed your life? Playing Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carol for the DCPA Theatre Company. I started portraying him when I was only 5, and did it every year until I was 9. That was my start to a professional career. The experience was truly once in a lifetime, and it hooked me up with many talented performers.
  • Why are you an actor? The best part of going to the theatre is watching others go on a journey, and learning something valuable about yourself in the meantime. That’s why I became an actor – to change people’s lives. 
  • What would you be doing for a career if you weren’t an actor? If I don’t become an actor when I grow up, then I want to be a computer programmer. I have a
    fascination with how computers and other machines work. And I have found a website that has been teaching me code.
  • Ideal scene partner: I would want to work with Charlie Chaplin. He has such a wonderful presence on screen, and can make any generation laugh. He also revolutionized physical comedy, and the way an actor can be funny, without even speaking. And lastly, he has a pretty awesome name.

  • What do you hope the audience gets out of seeing Frankenstein? I hope they get a new look on horror. Horror movies nowadays are mostly cheap ghost films or bad serial-killer flicks. But this play has a whole new (yet old) take on horror. This is horror that gets inside your brain.
  • Finish this sentence: “All I want is …”
    “… equality for all races, religions, and nationalities.”
