Q – Why did you audition for Arcadia?
A – I really liked the play, and wanted the opportunity to work with all of the incredibly talented people that had already signed on for the project.
Q – What shows might people have seen you in before?
A – Most recently, I was in a “two-person” Romeo and Juliet adaptation with Montford Park Players. Right before that, I made my Asheville Community Theatre debut as Stella Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire. I did a fair share of acting at Montford last season, but before that all of my work was done in Austin, Texas.
Q – How have you prepared for your character?
A – I watched quite a bit of The Catherine Tate show, for a character named Lauren Cooper. I also watched quite a bit of the UK Skins. Chloe is a collage of all those rich, terrible, British teens.
Q – If you got to hang out with your character for a day where would take them and what would you talk about?
A – I WOULD TAKE CHLOE EVERYWHERE. She and I would have a ball. We would go to Starbucks, we would go to the mall, we would go to Chipotle. Mostly, I would take her to all the bars I could sneak her into and get her a nice American boy. And laugh with her when she breaks his heart. #YOLO
Q – What’s the #1 reason someone should see this show?
A – It is a challenging and interesting play, done exceedingly well. Really, you would just be doing yourself a favor.
Q – Anything else that you’d like people to know about you?
A – I don’t use it in any acting capacity, but to be perfectly honest, I am a Baroness. So technically, I am part of the aristocracy, and I can be referred to as Lady Devyn. True Story.
Come see Devyn and the rest of the cast of Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia June 6th-20th!
