Meet the cast video series: Charlie Franklin

In this ongoing series, we briefly introduce you to the actors performing in our plays in a fun way. Episode 67: Meet Charlie Franklin of Albany, N.Y., a 22-year-old graduate of Pace University. Charlie talks about performing on Broadway in “The Bridges of Madison County,” working with Kelli O’Hara, and why, if he ever met Jim Carrey … they’d probably be fighting. Charlie plays Ralph (pronounced “Rafe”), the hunted leader of the British schoolboys still trying to hold on to their civility after a plane crash in the DCPA Theatre Company’s new adaptation of the William Golding classic “Lord of the Flies.” It plays through Nov. 2 in the Space Theatre. Call 303-893-4100, or go to Video by John Moore and David Lenk. Run time: 2 minutes, 28 seconds.
