What drew you to audition for this part?
Initially I auditioned for the role of Billy Bones and Captain Smollett, knowing they’re slightly older than my casting, but I wanted to have the opportunity to jump into the world of piracy, in an outdoor promenade performance.
However being recalled for Jim was just a treat! A complete contrast to my last character who was a warlord. Jim is a young vibrant boy full of energy, and has an expansive imagination that is sensitive to everything. Who wouldn’t want the chance to jump at that!
Plus the opportunity to tell the story of a famous novel was an extra bonus.
