We asked actor Kelly Helgeson about her role in Honest Theatre's Two Rooms. Check out her responses!
HT: Why did you want to be involved in this production?
K: This play seems very relevant for today's audiences. With terrorist bombings happening almost daily around the world we are constantly bombarded by images and stories of horror. This script looks at occurrences like these through a more personal perspective. And any time I can work with Honest Theatre, I jump at the chance!
HT: What do you hate about this character? Is it easier to play this character or to be yourself on stage?
K: Perhaps it's because I can relate, but I hate Lainie's indecisiveness! Should she speak out? Should she stay quiet? Just decide already! But with her husband's life literally hanging in the balance I suppose I can cut her some slack. :) As a rather shy person, I've always had a harder time being myself on stage rather than a character, so I would say it's easier being Lainie! Though who I am definitely informs Lainie's character.
