5 Questions with Tom Stokes

rsz_stokes-tom-2013-pic-e1380091246743What is your favourite swear word?
Fuck. So many variations and uses, ie: “All those fucking fucks are fucked, ay.”

What are you wearing?
I’m wearing some very loud shorts that are making up for the fact that I have no shirt on. It’s very muggy. The shirt I just took off, though, was an AS Colour t-shirt, shadow cut, navy blue. Available online or in store for $24.99.

What is love?
I think love is a simple word for a lot of very complex things. I think it means an array of different things to different people, so I don’t know that I can come up with a sufficient answer. What it is to me is the feeling I have with my family, with Liz Blackmore, with a few friends and with the Fremantle Dockers.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Once In Royal David’s City. It was tops. I admire how much of himself Michael Gow is prepared to put into his plays. He’s a seasoned professional that still gets that writing what you know is very effective. 4/5

Is your new show going to be any good?
Ken Oath.
