Your name: Jérôme Le Forestier
You are playing: Dr John Hall
Sum up your character in a tweet
Exacting, caring but humourless.
How similar are you to your character?
I am neither exacting nor humourless (I hope).
What’s been the biggest challenge about taking on this role?
What do you enjoy about acting?
The camaraderie and banter during rehearsals and providing entertainment when we go into production.
What’s your favourite part that you’ve ever played?
Difficult as I have had numerous parts that have been great so I’ll give you my most memorable being Heir Winkelkopf in Oscar Wilde’s Lord Arthur Saville’s Crime because it was my first ever time on stage.
What’s your dream role?
I don’t have one, I am happy to do as I’m told 😉 [first I’ve heard of it! – dir]
How have you found being part of the Open Stages project?
Why should people come and see The Herbal Bed?
It’s a fascinating story and it’s based on a true story which, I think makes it all the more enthralling.
You can see Jérôme – and the rest of the cast – in The Herbal Bed from 21-25 April in the grounds of St Lawrence Church, Abbots Langley (covered seating provided), as well as inside the church.
