5.Tell me about a time where you had difficulty turning yourself into a character. What was the character and why was it challenging?
At College we did a play that was based on drugs, as one of the main characters, i had to play as a drug addict, it was so difficult that i had to do some research. I watched films that helped me with it, my director also helped me alot. I finally could play it and enjoyed doing it.
