Radium Girls

Interview by Maddie Plunkett
Grace Fryer - Lead Role

As soon as I signed off on this role, I knew this would be a monumental challenge. Grace Fryer - a strong, relentless, and extremely dynamic character - would soon consume me for the nest eight weeks. I was ready. The day I got my hands on that script, I imagined what I would make of this character. However, I never really realized what this character would make of me. During these past eight weeks, I have been opened to a world of something that surpasses my history textbooks... It seemed the more I walked through my lines, the more I saw Grace Fryer become alive in me. As I stepped into her shoes, she stepped into mine. A perspective approach, I presume, but nonetheless, her fierceness, strength, and determination inspired me more than I could have ever imagined.
