Quick Questions with Clare Harlow (White Rabbit/Caterpillar, Alice in Wonderland)


What do you like best about playing your character in Alice in Wonderland?

I normally play characters who spend a lot of time worrying about what other people are thinking, but all the characters Alice meets in Wonderland are delightfully selfish, which is so much fun to play with.

What are rehearsals like?

Playful, collaborative, energetic.

What was the last project you worked on?

A short film called One In Ten, playing a woman suffering from post-natal depression.

Besides Alice, what’s your favourite past role?

Jane in Jane Eyre or Abigail in The Crucible.

What’s the best play/show/concert you’ve ever been to?

Too many to choose from, but the best thing I’ve seen this year so far has been The Pass at The Royal Court.

Not a lot of people know that…

The hatstand we use in the play is mine and I carried it across London on three different tube lines to get it to the venue.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

A long lie in.

What really grinds your gears?

The Northern Line really is the worst.
