Q&A with Alix

Name your favourite YPT production:

I have loved so many … it’s truly impossible to choose just one!!!

Describe your favourite Drama School memory:

That look of accomplishment and pride a student has when they overcome a tricky moment. When they’ve leapt in, risked big, and opened up to that delicious vulnerable space where all the magic happens. I do a happy dance anytime I see their hearts open and fly.

What would the central theme of a play written about you be?

The value of marching to the beat of your own drum. Authenticity is everything.

As the 2019/2020 Season theme is the Seven Ancestral Teachings, what is something you appreciate about Toronto and why?

I love Toronto’s cultural diversity and how so many people here seem committed to making sure everyone’s voice is heard and respected.
