We grabbed Alex Khanyaghma, who’s playing the White Rabbit/Mad Hatter in our upcoming production of Alice in Wonderland at the Battersea Library, and fired some quick questions at him.
The tea party scene. It always has me laughing when I read it and I love how Alice is trying to be logical.
What’s your favourite scene or character in ‘Alice in Wonderland’?
My Favourite character in Alice is definitely the Queen Of Hearts, she’s impulsive and ruthless, what a great way to lead.
What was the last project you worked on?
The last project I worked on was at The Vault festival in a new writing piece called ‘Little Write Lies’. ‘LWL’ comprised of 3 short plays all dealing with different aspects of lying and explored characters interacting with deception.
What’s the last book you read?
The book I am currently reading is ‘Labyrinth’ by Kate Mosse, not the super model, but author of the same name.
Besides Alice, what’s your favourite past role (or favourite past project you’ve worked on) and why?
Besides Alice, my favourite past show was the panto ‘Tinderella’ a modern take on Cinderella, where I played Prince Charming and Buttons, it was genuinely laugh out loud funny.
Not a lot of people know that…
I only change my bed once a month
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Listening to One Direction
What really grinds your gears?
When I am wearing freshly washed clothes and I drop food on them before I’ve even left the house.
