Trinity student Alexander Molony is playing Young Macduff in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s current production of Macbeth at the Barbican in London.
Playing alongside Christopher Eccleston and Niamh Cusack, Alexander (First Form) has spent time rehearsing with the RSC and is thoroughly enjoying his experience. He said:
“Before the first audition I was very nervous, but excited, as the RSC is such a prestigious company. I went along, tried my best and then, soon after, I was asked back for a recall. I was offered the part, along with two other boys, and I was thrilled! We rehearsed in Stratford-upon-Avon (which was exciting and awe-inspiring) and Clapham before the show started its run at The Barbican.
It was interesting to see how the director interpreted the play and turned it into a horror story. I feel privileged to have worked with the fantastic adult cast, learning how they interpret their characters and deliver their lines. It has been an amazing experience and I will be sad when the run finishes in January.”
Head of Drama, Levent Husnu, said “Alexander is a First Year drama student who began drama at Trinity in JBugs. Since then we are proud to say he has become one of our break-out stars, soaring in confidence and ability.”
Alexander has also been involved in the recent TV show The Reluctant Landlord, starring alongside Romesh Ranganathan and Sian Gibson, playing the character of Charlie (Romesh’s son).
