How do you prepare for a performance?

I listen to a lot of recordings of the roles I perform.

And my whole focus and concentration lie on my roles.

To which music do you love to dance?

Normally, I do not listen to pop music.

But if I had to dance to music without it being classic music, I would choose Jazz or

club dance music…

Funny Movie or Dramatic Movie?

The both, but I love dramatic movies a bit more.

Thats is because I’m quite a sensitive man. On some days I feel like crying or expressing my

sensibility, which is why I would probably watch a dramatic or sad movie.
