Interviews of the ‘click-click’ kind…

Introducing DMS actor – Andrew McLean

Let the interview begin…

1) Do you have a favourite quote?
* Yes. I’ve always loved this quote from ‘The Tempest’. “Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears; and sometime voices,
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open, and show riches
Ready to drop upon me; that, when I waked,
I cried to dream again.”
― William Shakespeare, The Tempest

2) What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
* Clothes washing and folding.

3) What is your favourite form of exercise?
* Skiing!

4) If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and what would it be for?
* A huge Octoberfest themed party to celebrate the glory of beer. Do I need any other reason?

(Not at all Drew, not at all)

5) If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to?
* Max Power

6) When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
* Playing guitar

7) What was the last movie, TV show or book that made you cry or tear up?
* Movie: Train Spotting.
* TV Show: I don’t really watch TV.
* Book: Hmm probably Four Fires by Bryce Courtenay

8) What’s your favourite piece of clothing you own?
* My tracky dacks. No question.

9) What fictional place would you most like to go?
* Hobbiton!

10) Are you an early or late person?
* I like to mix it up to keep people guessing.

 

 

 

Now Drew plays the part of Gomez in The Addams Family and so we were able to get some insight into Gomez Addams through Drew.

 

 

1) Do you have a favourite quote?
* I once knew a lovely young man called Edgar, who said “Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there,
wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before”. Edgar Allan Poe. Makes you feel all warm inside, no?

2) What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
* Chores? Life is too short for chores! That’s why we love our Lurch. He takes care of that.

3) What is your favourite form of exercise?
* Fencing! Ha! Feel the kiss of my Spanish steel!

4) If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and what would it be for?
* Once a year we gather beneath our family tree to celebrate the great cycle of life, and death. THIS is the greatest party – a night to end all nights.

5) If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to?
* I would never change the name my dear departed mother bestowed upon me. Such a travesty would bring shame to the name of Addams.

6) When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
* In the arms of my luscious wife, Morticia. Although 30 minutes really only allows a warm up for the main event.

7) What was the last movie, TV show or book that made you cry or tear up?
* ‘The Princess Bride’. The torture scene is just divine; brings us to tears every time.

8) What’s your favourite piece of clothing you own?
* My smoking jacket – it really smokes!

9) What fictional place would you most like to go?
* Who needs fictional places when one can simply open a book and be immersed into the darkest recesses of human despair? That is true bliss.

10) Are you an early or late person?
*I dream of being the late Gomez Addams.
