The lovely Rosie Marsh, who’s playing Ally in Fetch, gave us 5 minutes of her valuable line-learning time to answer our questions.
What do you like best about your character?
I think she’s hilarious. She’s not a bad person but she has let life make her bitter, and as a result she’s developed an incredibly sarky, quick persona with some brilliant one-liners. The nasty ones are always the most fun to play.
What’s your favourite past production that you’ve worked on?
Aah, really tough one! Probably for the overall experience, my first Edinburgh experience with the play I co-wrote, ‘twenty something.’ our whole cast were all mates, we were there for a whole month and we had an absolute blast. It wasn’t what most would deem ‘high theatre’ but I loved every minute of it.
What’s the best show you’ve ever been to?
Stop asking tough questions! Too difficult to say, but my favourite recent play was ‘King Charles III’; brilliantly written, funny and thought provoking, everything I like in a play.
What’s your favourite horror movie?
I hate horror movies. But I loved Hocus Pocus- that counts, right? (Blackshaw says: “It totally does”)
What scares you silly?
My own imagination.
You’re going to a Halloween Party, what are you dressing up as?
Im quite good at stage makeup so i like to crack out a zombie at a party; I like that you can go for a few looks with a zombie; zombie princess, zombie firewoman, zombie farmer….you get the idea.
Have you ever had a spooky experience?
Yes. I was lying in bed in our old house in Exeter, just about to turn the light off via the cord above the bed, when someone whispered in my ear ‘are you going to turn out the light?’ I screamed blue murder, and I maintain to this day that that happened!
Not a lot of people know that…
I find spiders so scary I will cry if you bring one too close to me.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
I do love a bit of TOWIE. judge me all you want.
What really grinds your gears?
People eating too loudly. Or eating on the radio. Why?!? It’s disgusting!
Don’t miss Rosie in Fetch as a part of our Halloween Tales on 30th, 31st October and 1st November. Tickets are still available, but not for long.
