With a little over a week to go, some news on the lovely cast of Hang. It obviously includes me, but that's a given, but also these two talented actresses.
Pamela hails from Dublin and came to London to attend the Academy Drama School. Since graduating she has toured extensively through the UK and Europe. Theatre roles include: Landlady in Two, Octavia in Anthony and Cleopatra, Nancy in Dance Hall Days and Pegeen Mike in The Playboy of the Western World. She previously worked with Milk Bottle Productions on The Natural History of Trolls.
Of course, that's just the official stuff. I first consciously met the delightful Pamela backstage at a production I had a little finger of involvement in a few years back, The Revengers. As it happens I had probably met her before at a production of Othello I'd been in, which she recently reminded me she had seen. But we first worked together on The Natural History of Trolls - Pamela being one of the principle voices who did all of the shows at the New Wimbledon Studio. In fact, due to her ability to say the word 'fuzzy' in a particularly amusing way, I rewrote the script slightly in her honour. Pamela will be principally playing the part of Amanda, who has a difficult relationship with her tusks.
Gillian Horgan is from Cork, and trained at Drama Studio London. Theatre credits include: “The Inner Life of Veronika Zabenko”, "The Natural History of Trolls” at the New Wimbledon Studio, “No Dogs” at the White Bear, “Susanna” at Theatro Technis, "Tilt" at the Cockpit Theatre, "Famine" at the Old Red Lion, and "Monsieur Venus" at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Screen credits include: “Wounded”, "Three", “Forget-Me-Not”, “Camden Calling”, "Verge", "Black Coffee" and "The Boat That Rocked".
The fabulous Gillian is another survivor of The Natural History of Trolls from its original production at the New Wimbledon Studio. Gillian will be playing a number of roles, including a media spin doctor, trying to spin the end of civilisation as we know it. In a piece of worthless trivia, Gillian is responsible for bringing to my attention one of the odder search items that anyone has typed into google to then discover my blog. Having come from Cork and acted in a show called No Dogs, some poor soul who typed '1 day old dogs in cork' came whizzing to my cast blog post for a show about orange penguins. Could be worse, one ex-cast member of that same production shares their name with a performer of hard-core pornography.
