What did you have for breakfast?

Barcelona was very fun for me. I loved it! But also my trip to Wiesbaden Germany where I got to play and meet many actors from all over the world at the Theater biennale 2012 for new plays from Europe…

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Happy by Pharrel Williams because it brings me up!

I wish I lived in a castle, in a forest with many animals…

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
Christian Bale! Because he makes my jaw drop, with his talent!

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?

The unknown!
