EDEN Feature – Tracy Penner

Tracy is a new addition to EDEN, but a very welcome addition. She plays Delilah, a character who struggles to survive and find a better life. Tracy likes to keep rehearsals entertaining with her quick wit and talent for puns. She thought these questions were tricky to answer:

1. What is one thing every actor needs to know? How to listen.

2. What does every great story have to have? Conflict.

3. What is your favourite word? Supercalifragilisticexpealidotious.

4. If I could grant you a single wish, what would it be? World peace.

Complete the sentences:

5. If I wasn’t typing this email interview right now, I would be… serving.

6. The most surprising thing that happened to me was… becoming an actor.

7. A common misconception of me is… that I might be something other than normal.

8. You know me as a actor but in truer life I’d have been… a clown.
