5 Questions with Gemma Scoble

gemmascoble‏What is your favourite swear word?
I think “fuck me dead” even though that’s three words and when you think about it, it’s pretty gross.

What are you wearing?
Jeans, cons, a black jumper (cause I like to keep things classsssssy).

What is love?
Love is… Well. When I eat something. Like ribs. Or like a good steak that comes with fries on the side. I always save the best bit till last… Like, I portion off the best bit of steak, and make sure there is just enough fries and sauce to accompany that bite into my mouth. Normally, if someone tried to take that from me I’d stab that motherfucker’s hand with my fork. So I guess Love, in it’s purest form, would be sharing my last bite of my favourite meal with them. Probs not 50/50 though. Maybe 70/30.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
The last show I saw was Tartuffe. I laughed a lot at the script, and thought the adaptation worked really well. Kate Mulvany is just a bit excellent… but then again so is the entire cast. The women in it, like Helen Dallimore seemed to take on their roles with a contemporary approach or ambition so that the idea of them being “supporting characters” was knocked out the window. To me that’s really inspiring. I would give it 11 stars?

Is your new show going to be any good?
Hells to the yeah.
