Episode 3 - Jillian Hanson
Jilly joined me a couple weeks ago for a really great chat about acting, theatre, and the artistic process. It's the longest episode, which is fine because it just rolled really well. I saw Jilly on stage before I ever met her and she has some mighty fine acting chops.
Barely touched on is the time I acted for her. As an actor she has developed an understanding of how important it is to give other actors freedom to explore their characters but also knows what she wants and isn't afraid to tell you to do something different. It was a great experience.
We also talk a bit about a mutual friend, Nick Lawson. Nick has been one of my dearest friends for over 15 years and he is an astoundingly creative individual. No one has quite the same angle on things as him. He is a farmer, a playwright, an engineer, a floor installer, a damn good cook, and a fantastic human being. I just wanted to give a little context for those of you who get to that part and are unfamiliar with the man we're talking about.
Thanks to Jilly for coming by. You can follow her on Twitter @jillaaay
