Acting is the study of life and if you don’t live it, you don’t have much to pull from.
CHARPO: When you were living in Europe, were there any anxious thoughts of, “I need to get back home, move to Toronto, and start auditioning now?”
CHARPO: Why did you decide on Montreal?
CHARPO: I’ve asked this before: What is your most embarrassing audition?
CHARPO: Next up is Othello on the main stage at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts. What is your relationship with Shakespeare?
CHARPO: What is your next project?
