Pierre Stafrace has been involved in theatre for quite a few years and has interpreted various roles from Buttons in the panto Cinderella to Puck in Shakespeare’s Mid-Summer Night’s Dream, through Marat in Marat Sade and Alex in 100. He has recently played George in Studio 18’s #babydaddy and was involved as a number of characters in Ir-Ritorn by Theatre Anon, of which he is a founding member.

Can you mention something, whether in your personal life or career, that has yet to be accomplished?

There is so much I would still love to do that the list wouldn’t fit on this page! I enjoy trying out new things and working on different projects. I hope that I will never stop learning.

Besides acting, what are some of the other things that you cherish in life?

I like the outdoors and I enjoy climbing, walking and the occasional cycle. I cherish time with my family and with my extended family of friends.

Do you prefer dining out or clubbing? And why?

There is a time for everything! There are times when I feel like clubbing and can dance till the early hours of the morning, and there are other times when a quiet meal with a nice bottle of wine is what I really desire. And there are other times when I go to the theatre!

Any behind-the-scenes anecdotes you can share?

In the production of ‘Il-Marid Immaġinarju,’ which has been my first performance with Du’ Theatre, we included the song and dance interludes which were actually written in Molière’s original script… well, with the music updated to a more contemporary style! Song and dance was never my forte, so during the initial rehearsals, I was often out of sync with everyone else, to the amusement of my fellow actors. I have improved, though!
