What traits do you share with your character in the show?
Like Fiddler Cat, I enjoy corny puns and play a stringed instrument in the violin family, though my instrument is actually a viola.
What is your favorite animal and why?
My favorite animal is probably an octopus because of its cool camouflage and ability to open jars from the inside. (I considered saying cats, but I am sadly allergic to them.)
What qualities do you think make up a heart of gold?
I think the most important quality in a heart of gold is a willingness to listen to others and show compassion to everyone.
What do you like most about being an actor?
My favorite part of being an actor is the opportunity to see the world through someone else’s eyes—playing a wide variety of characters throughout the years has taught me a lot about having a heart of gold.
What advice do you have for younger audience members?
My advice for young audience members is to focus on your own adventure. Your path is unique, so forge it proudly! I wish you the best and hope you enjoy the show!
