5 Questions with Hugh O’Connor

hughoconnorWhat is your favourite swear word?
Cunt. It just sounds so great, the way the consonants sit in your mouth. For me it’s the perfect curse word. I need to stop saying it around kids.

What are you wearing?
Beige shorts and a grey reebok singlet. No shoes, I hate wearing shoes. I’ll take comfort over fashion any day.

What is love?
My family, my husband. Love is their acceptance and unyielding support. Love is something I couldn’t live without. Gosh, I am a total romantic!

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
I really don’t see enough theatre. I spend so much time working in them that as soon as I get any free time I spend it out in the real world! So the last show I saw was my own show, The Witches, which was at Griffin Theatre. And of course I give it 5 stars (but seriously it was really good).

Is your new show going to be any good?
I bloody hope so! The cast is top notch, and I love Nick Enright. It should be really a fun and engaging show.
