At one point I had the distinct privilege of playing the most straightforward action [anti-]hero Shakespeare ever wrote – the villainous, tortured, unspeakably violent, REALLY cool Macbeth.
(You can tell that I’m a medieval warlord because I have truly ridiculous hair. This is a demonstration of why I get a haircut every three weeks.)
Photo evidence follows. For anyone reading – if this poor sap can do it, you can take the role by storm. Look around for opportunities to try acting Shakespeare yourself. Look at school, in the community, at a Shakespeare in Action event – hey, YouTube always beckons.
See you next week!
