- Co-star Jack Lowden talks to us about the Covid impact on his fellow actors saying, "we have a lot of actors who won’t have experienced a paying audience, which you have to do night after night, week after week to get any good at it. I think it’s really hard for young actors."
- Lowden goes on to say, "I think the great thing about theater is that some of the greatest people around are in theater in the UK, so I don’t think that will be a problem of them reinventing themselves, I think they have to reinvent themselves as they do with fundraisers and it’s always the same problem, it’s money. I don’t those people will ever run out of ideas to keep theaters open if they can and how to come back, it’s just getting money, so I think theaters will absolutely come back."
