Ahead of their debut show, LEGO Beach, we sat down with INKBLOC Ensemble to discover a little more about this year’s Made in Bristol troupe.
Here we caught up with Alex to find out all about her Bristol Old Vic theatre background.
What have you been involved in at the Bristol Old Vic and outside of Made in Bristol?
I was in young company for a term and I really enjoyed my time there, so I was determined to maintain my involvement with Bristol Old Vic. With this in mind I helped out back stage with the ‘Under a Cardboard Sea’ production, which was a great experience. Since then I had a role in ‘The Love of the Nightingale’ performance as Niobe, which was an amazing Young Company production to be a part of. Previously, I have studied at the North Bristol post 16 centre doing Drama, Literature and Performing Arts and have always tried to gear my studies towards performance.
What is this year for you?
For me, this year has been a right laugh but also a challenge.
Favourite thing about INKBLOC?
I didn’t expect to gain a place on this programme but when I did it opened up doors to be the best gap year! My favourite thing about INKBLOC is the cracking people; many a time I’ve been in hysterics with the gang, but we always knuckle down and create work and support each other
Plans for the future?
My plan for the future is to start university in September at Bath Spa and study acting.
Tell us something interesting?
I can quote all 9 seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race (extraordinary show) and that I have a serious addiction to eating grated cheese out of the bag.
