5 Questions with Katherine Shearer

rsz_katherine-shearer-headshotWhat is your favourite swear word?
Jesus. My parents would kill me if I ever said that in front of them. My mum already said I’m not going to heaven.

What are you wearing?
Not much. I’m a bit of a nudist at heart, but only when I’m home alone. I have underwear on though, I find my sports bra a comfort, and I always love my pair of diamond studs in the ears, which I’m wearing now. And my belly ring.

What is love?
The greatest thing on earth. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable and knowing you are in safe hands.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Seeing a legend like Tony Sheldon perform was a thrill. Matt Hetherington, who was super funny and wonderfully engaging, was walking next to me on George St…”Hey, I just saw you on stage!” We had a chat – what a humble guy! Show was slick, which is why I’m not a huge Musical Theatre fan, but the performances are top class. 4 stars. Lost a star for John Wood’s French accent and lack of dance ability. Anne Wood deserved a better dance number!! She was superb and a rocking figure on her!

Is your new show going to be any good?
I’ve been in some shows that have been turkeys. Decadence is not one of those.

Katherine Shearer is starring in Decadence by Steven Berkoff.
Show dates: 4 – 7 Dec, 2013
