Ep. 28: Mhairi Morrison - Actor
I'm so excited to be chatting with comedic actress, Mhairi Morrison. Mhairi, who incidentally, is Scottish/American, has worked extensively in mime, puppeteering, dance, clown, mask work, and has recently trained in performance capture. Talk about well rounded!
Mhairi has been in the U.S. for several years now, but prior to coming to L.A., she trained and worked in the U.K. and in France. We talked a bit about the differences in training and working there vs. training and working here in the states. As an American actor, the differences blew me away and really made me start to fantasize about what a career in the arts would look like outside of the U.S.
During our talk, Mhairi opened up about how she fell out of love with acting a few years ago. I know that a lot of you listening will be able to relate to her story. But don't worry, it has a happy ending! She shares how she fell back in love, and took charge of her career. And, how doing stand-up, and creating her own web series helped her reignite that passion.
I asked Mhairi to send me a few fun facts to help you guys get to know her a bit better. Here's what she sent:
I am a wild addict of eggplant and have been known to order all the eggplant dishes in a restaurant and devour them all.
One of my favorite things in the world is being in front of the fire at my mum and dad's house in Scotland, listening to the wild rain outside and watching Miss Marple, while eating lasagna.
If I ever get really overwhelmed/exhausted, the thing that revives me is lying in bed watching French films back to back on Netflix, while wearing silk and eating copious amounts of toast and Bonne Maman jam.
I love to climb walls.
I traveled through Guatemala with a hammock during the civil war.
Now, if that list doesn't make you want to know more, I don't know what will! There's so much good, fun stuff here. So let's get to it! Here is my chat with comedic actress, Mhairi Morrison!
