All Stages Online: Spring 2013 – Role of a Lifetime – “That Depends”

Elinor Holt – “That Depends…”

It may sound cheesy but my favourite theatrical role is the always the one I am currently working on. Or if I am unemployed it’s the one I have coming up next. I find it is way too easy to go “down the rabbit hole” into a big old funk, if I let myself dwell on past successes or fixate on my dream roles. What if I get too old to play Martha or Lady M? Perhaps that ship has already sailed. Perhaps I was never right for that role to begin with. If pressed, I could probably come up with a few favourites. But I really think it’s better for my mental health if I don’t. “Love the one you’re with” as the song says. And I do.
