Stephanie on Acting
Um, acting has always been a passion of mine. Um, it’s something I got into when I was quite young. Ah, my uncle lived away in Spain so, ah, me and my parents used to make little comedy home videos to send over to kind of keep in touch over the distance, so ah yeah we were always doing funny little sketches around the house, especially when we went on holidays and things, so I think that is where my love acting first came to life. Um, I was actually quite inspired by The Lord of the Rings film, which is well over ten years ago now, but ah, I think what I liked about that was the whole fantasy world that was created in, in film and which I then saw elsewhere in theater. The fact that you could go to another world, and be involved in another world I... I really really loved, so, uh, I think that’s what really got me interested in performing and acting as well.
Now, I do a lot of acting. I’ve done everything from commercials, ah, TV programs, presenting, film, ah, theater as well on stage. I’ve done musical theater and all sorts as well. Um, and I think that my favorite is the theater. Um, I think because the response you get from the audience is more immediate, whereas if you’re acting on film or camera, you get to, you get to do things again. I quite like the challenge of, of being there in the moment having to get it right in front of an audience. I kind of like that. So, uh, yeah, I would say that theater is probably my favorite type of acting, and probably what I spend most of my time doing.
