Julie Sinclair – The Seagull by Anton Chekov – Grant MacEwan Theatre Arts (workshop production), Edmonton, 1993
As a young Canadian woman, playing an old Russian man was the complete antithesis to my own life. Coming from a primarily dance and singing background, acting was the skill I had the least experience in; The role of Sorin gave me permission, and the opportunity, to COMPLETELY step outside myself to play and explore this character. I learned that nothing was impossible—you just have to believe it. What a gift!
