Cam Ascroft- Malvolio
Cam Ascroft plays Malvolio in Twelfth Night. (The smiling, yellow stocking, cross-gartered fellow.)
What excites you most about working on Twelfth Night? Returning to a role I last played 18 years ago, as an older, and possibly wiser, actor.
How would you describe your character? Complex. And misunderstood. An outsider.
What’s your favourite quote from the play? “I was adored once too.” (Sir Andrew Aguecheek, Act 2, scene 3)
How did you get drawn to Shakespeare? I read The Tempest when I was 8. I’ve been hooked ever since.
Dream Shakespeare Role: I’m currently playing it.
Favourite Shakespeare Play: The Merchant of Venice
