5 Questions with Taylor Beadle-Williams

rsz_taylorbw_by_alex_vaughan_dsc7517What is your favourite swear word?
To be honest, I’m not much of a swearer. One can express anguish, frustration, and distress in other, more child-like ways: damn, crap, poop.

What are you wearing?
I am trying to fight off the flu right now, so I’m wearing my dressing gown with nothing else underneath, except Vicks rubbed on my chest. Oh yeah, what a turn on!

What is love?
I’m going to sound like such a sop, but to me, love is a sensation that cannot be avoided. I feel it and I give it all the time. It’s our human right. Love is a euphoric warmth, it’s a crushed heart, it can liven you up, shrink you, cause you pain, cause you happiness and pleasure. If you fall in love, you fall in love, and that’s that – you can’t help who it might be with. This is entirely how I feel about chocolate.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
The last show I saw was actually Russian Daydreams, performed by the Sydney Symphony. I am a huge classical music lover, and this performance brought me to tears. Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev are two of the most stunning composers. I give it 11 out of 10!

Is your new show going to be any good?
Of course Trainspotting will be good. However, just expect the unexpected. You have been warned.

Taylor Beadle-Williams is appearing in Trainspotting with Black Box Theatre.
Show dates: 8 – 24 May, 2014
