We caught up with Nathalie to talk about A Little Life, now playing at the Harold Pinter Theatre.
Hi Nathalie, how does it feel to be part of A Little Life? It feels thrilling and challenging in the best possible way.
How familiar with the story were you before coming into this production? I wasn’t familiar with it at all. I read the book just before rehearsals began. I couldn’t put it down.
Could you tell me more about the character you play? I play Ana who is Jude’s childhood social worker. She’s the only person who knows his history and probably the closest thing to a confidant that he has. In a sense, she’s his voice of reason.
How have you found working on the production so far? It’s great being surrounded by such brilliant actors and we’ve been having a lot of fun.
How has it been working alongside Ivo van Hove? I love it.
What are you most looking forward to about bringing this story to the stage? Well it’s always exciting bringing a well loved book to life. But personally I hope the unwavering, complex love these characters have for each other resonates most.
