- Part 3
the biggest/funniest mistake you've ever done
on stage?? (carys (again! ha ha), south wales!!!)
all make mistakes on stage one day or another.
Or witness some from fellow actors ;
and then the uncontrolable laughter that
follows is something to remember... I can
recall one time when I lost my words during
the soliloquy in Whistle down the wind,
but that was the scariest experience Ive
ever had on stage, not funny at all and
I was devastated for quite a while actually.
I do not wish that feeling on anybody, it
was dreadful, terrifying.
you feel responsibility for having changed
the Bible ;)? With your Judas we seem to have
an amazingly different Legend now (Ljuba K.,
I dont feel any responsability of
that kind, after all its only a character
and a play, and I wouldnt be so presomptuous
as to think Ive changed the Bible.
you have any plans to perform over here in
the United States. (Perhaps your one-man show)?
(Milton, St. Petersburg, Florida, U.S.)
I dont have any plan for that, but
I hope I will.
would like to know what made you decide to
take on the part of Judas in a movie version
of JCS, having not performed the role before.
Would you play Judas again? (Carla St. Clair,
Shores, Michigan, USA)
I said before, it was offered to me and
you dont turn down such a rare and
fantastic opportunity. I dont think
I would play Judas again, as I dont
think I could sustain such a hard sing on
stage. Its actually very high for
in the 70's JCS appealed mostly to late teens
and early 20's. What do you feel has changed
to explain the wide age span of the fans now?
(Carla St. Clair, Shores, Michigan, USA)
The teens have aged, as all of us, and new
generations are now taking over.
krab (Bonjour en thaï), Pensez-vous à
faire un tour en Thaïlande-pays du sourire?
Ce sera génial si j'ai l'occasion d'être
votre guide. Si seulement j'avais pu voir
Les Mis en français... (Narin P., Thailande)
suis déjà allé en Thaïlande
quand javais 18 ans. Peut-être
y retournerai-je un jour.
the part of Judas you own interpretation or
the producer's one? Because after "your
Judas" all other versions will soon be
forgotten, I'm sure, -just read the fan fiction,
and you will understand what I mean. How did
you see him yourself? (Ljuba K., Moscow, Russia)
my interpretation and the directors ;
actually a bit of both that produced what
you see on screen.
you have any plans to come to Sweden? Have
you ever been performing in Sweden? Are you
troubled by the people standing outside the
stagedoors waiting for you? (Linda, Stockholm,
did a concert last year in Sweden, and I
enjoyed it very much.
I am glad to see people standing outside
the stage door, its very flattering
and heart warming. It somehow gives meaning
to what I do on stage and it strengthens
the faith I have in my craft and helps me
discard the doubts I have sometimes about
the purpose of it all. So thanks a million
to all of you out there taking notice. May
all this attention be returned to you all
and bring you joy.
can I get a copy of Tendrement ? (Jj, London)
Tendrement is out of print, but one day
Ill post it on the website.
was it like working with glenn Carter? (renee,
Brooklyn, New York)
Carter was very nice to work with.
heard that you believe in God and pray regularly,
so what I was wondering was are you a Christian,
Catholic or another religion? (Vicky Beken,
dont like dogmas and institutionalized
religions; I have my own, my own prayers,
my own way of believing in god, inspired
by all kinds of teachings and all kinds
of religions ; I believe its
a very personal and intimate subject, and
that its a contradiction in terms
that anything related to god and faith should
lead to war and killing each other mercilessly.
living in England, what do you miss most about
France and vice versa? (Judas)
England, I miss the French lifestyle that
sort of revolves around food and wine, and
a certain « douceur de vivre ».
In France, I miss the vibe that exists in
London, the drinks at the pubs after the
shows, a certain sense of humour, the musical
of your performances would you say, has been
your proudest achievement professionally and
which personally? (Jan, Deepest, darkest Wales!)
Movie, because I adapted it in French, played
and produced it and it was very well received.
and as an actor, where do you think the musical
genre has taken you and vice versa? (Helen
represent for me a unique way of making
theatre ; its a unique experience,
linking into one the pleasure of acting
and the pleasure of singing. Its quite
extraordinary and its been a total
revelation for me.
the acting technique required for musical
roles helped you prepare and create non musical
roles? If so, how? (Helen Bridgend, Wales)
in my case, its the acting technique
that helps me prepare for musical and non
musical roles. I dont think there is
one specific acting technique for musical
theatre different from any other ones.
you had the chance to work with any respected
actor/actress of your own choice, who would
you choose and why? Failing that, what's your
mobile phone number? (Toni, Wales, UK)
a very long list. And obviously there wont
be any answer to the second question.
1 - Part 2
- Part 3
do you prefer: playing the good guy or the
baddie? (Corrie, the Netherlands)
role as long as its a good part.
you be returning to London to perform in anything
in the near future? Do you think you will
ever make an album of songs in French, that
would be wonderful? I love the albums of francophone
artists such as Helene Segara, Pascal Obispo,
Partick Fiori, Garou and many more.. so I`d
love to hear you sing in your native language.
I will. Apparently quite soon.
I would love to make an album of songs in
French or in English. I hope it will happen.
is your dream part? The ultimate part ever?
The part that you could sell your soul for?
(Anne Schjerven, Sortland, Norway)
dream Part ? Well, how could there
be an ultimate part when you want to always
move on in your career because thats
the only thing you really love doing, when
there are so many parts that you still havent
yet played and when you are in need of constantly
improve your craft and get new ideas and
work on new projects cause its your
do you balance everything you do? Is that
hard? (Krista, Philadelphia, USA)
can be. Theatre and for that matter musical
theatre is very demanding. But the fun is
difficult is it, to emote the intense feelings
and expressions, whilst in a recording studio,
onto the likes of the Crime of Passion soundtrack,
with it being a solo piece, without the benefit
of acting the play out? (Jan, Wet and windy
that recording, the challenge was to go
very deep emotionnally and be able to convey
that on a soundtrack ; It was short
but very intense sessions and yes difficult
as I hadnt yet worked on the part
with the stage in mind.
i don't expect you to answer this question....but
i'll be bloody suprised if you did! ha ha!............what's
your mobile/home phone number please?? lol
(carys -x- wales)
was wondering if you would ever consider doing
an official webchat with us???????? (Suzanne(the
quiet scottish lassie), Glasgow)
might in the future ; lets see
what it brings.
your email address? (OK, ONLY JOKING).....
A question for actors who play baddies: what
is the naughtiest thing you did as a child?
And as an adult? (Sharon, miles from anywhere,
wont answer that question, sorry...
have you ever performed in the US and will
you consider coming to the US in the future?
(Sue Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA)
Ive never performed per say in the
US and would be delighted to see it happen
there any performer (actor or singer/ alive
or dead) that you would love to work with
that you haven't already? Be it to perform
with them or write with them... (Britwitch,
are a lot of people that I would like to
you a cat person or a dog person...? Stupid
question but I would like to know!! (Britwitch,
Though I had a cat for sixteen years.
you weren't a successful actor :-) what job
could you see yourself at now? (carys, wales)
dont see any.
is your favouritemusical and why? (Jessica)
I cant pick one just like that.
I suppose it would have to be a Stephen
Sondheim musical. Cause they are such good
acting pieces, but some of Lloyd Weber or
Boublil and Schönberg are great too.
