Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in Denmark?OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I am originally from Italy and I have lived in Denmark since April 2012.

How have you been involved with the CTC?

I have mainly been on stage for the CTC (Aladdin, The Importance of Being Earnest, Beyond Therapy), but I also gave a hand with the scenery for last year’s pantomime (I am afraid my help there may have been rather useless, as I am generally hopeless at using my hands…)

What is your greatest CTC achievement so far?

I am not sure… Does wearing a yellow spandex morphsuit in Aladdin count as an achievement or just downright insanity?

What is your favourite play?

This is a difficult one… I suppose The Importance of Being Earnest.

Who would you cast as yourself in a movie of your life?

Someone absolutely gorgeous who could distract the audience from the dullness of the subject.

Tell us something that might surprise people.

I have web-feet: oh, you should see me swimming.

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Light-hearted, light-headed, light-weight.

Dinner for four – you and 3 others – living or otherwise – who would you invite and why?

HM The Queen – Elizabeth II, that is, of course (her banter is great and perhaps we could go at hers?…); Dame Maggie Smith (for her sense of humour); Oscar Wilde (need I say why?). Oh boy, that’d be a dinner party, I can tell you!
