Quick Questions with Natalie Winter (The March Hare/Dormouse/Door 2, Alice in Wonderland)

NATALIE WINTER – MARCH HARE/DORMOUSE/DOOR 2Natalie Winter smaller

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

How physically involved I have to be at all times – it becomes a bit of a juggling act! What are rehearsals like? Fun! There’s a nice balance of playfulness and focus – which you need in a show like Alice. You’ve got to let the madness and the silliness out, but be technically aware of what will work for the audience.

What was the last project you worked on?

I’m currently involved in Star Trek: Lost Enterprise, which is an ongoing audio drama released on YouTube, about the mysterious disappearance of the USS Enterprise B. I play a Bajoran spiritual leader in the first two episodes, and make an appearance in the last two as a very different character…. But as they’re not released yet I can’t tell you who because, spoilers! Anyone interested can go to http://www.lostenterprise.co.uk to listen to the episodes released so far.

Besides Alice, what’s your favourite past role?

It sounds like a cliché, but I loved playing Lady Macbeth in drama school. I often get cast as the quirky or comic part, so getting to explore a character that dark was wonderful.

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

Those are 3 different questions! Maybe not the best ones critically, but War Horse, Matilda and a video games concert (yes it’s a real thing!) I went to a couple of years ago. All three moved me in ways I didn’t expect.

Not a lot of people know that…

I once made Paul McCartney a margarita (although he likes to call them Maccaritas…).

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Grey’s Anatomy. All the other stuff you’d think a woman in her mid-20s would be guilty about (the Disney films, the cheesy musicals, the cartoons and the inordinate amount of time playing video games) I’m proud to love.

What really grinds your gears?

Spitting in the street. And people who think ‘Feminism’ means ‘I hate men.’
