7th July 2012
Asian Voices: Raza Jaffrey. An interview with the actor, who shot to theatrical fame via Mamma Mia! and Bombay Dreams, and whose TV credits include Spooks and Life Isn’t All Ha Ha Hee Hee. Suman Bhuchar quizzes him backstage at the Garrick Theatre, as he prepares to take to the stage as Billy Flynn in Chicago for one of the last times in his recent run in the starring role, after seven years away from London theatre.
“The truth is that most actors work very hard at doing what they do to be able to get to the point where they’re even able to be auditioned in a room. What’s interesting about going to the States is that there’s a real mentality about certain skill-sets that every actor needs to have to be successful.”
