What would you recommend to those who are interested in taking up acting?
Be patient and enjoy doing it without any expectations of getting a decent wage out of it. That’s the situation in Malta, unfortunately.
What support systems would you like to see for local drama?
I would like to see a union for actors in order to keep in check some production houses who sometimes undermine their actors.
What’s your normal preparation process before a performance?
Before a performance I simply concentrate and say a prayer before I go on stage.
What’s the best thing in life, in your opinion?
The best thing about life is love.
How would you describe your relationship with money?
Well, I would like to have a good relationship with money. But I don’t bother; I’m always happy with what I have.
What do you enjoy most about fashion?
Nothing; I only buy clothes that I can afford. I don’t look for brands.
