The 98%

Mar 21, 2022

Mic, Concern, Reaction; where Alexa and Katie discuss current goings on in the industry, hot off the press, that specifically relate to The 98% of actors. In this episode, following on from the twitter storm in response to Rufus Norris' comments quoted in a recent article for The Stage, Alexa and Katie chat to Alastair Coomer, head of casting at The National, about the context of the artistic directors comments, the nuances of the issues raised and have honest and open look at casting for the company. Katie and Alexa ask the bold questions many actors want to hear the answer to and Alastair answers with candidness, making for an incredibly informative and open discussion that everyone from both sides of the table can benefit from.
