EVA: Rebecca, tell us about your hometown.
REBECCA: I’m from Port Elizabeth, a city in South Africa. It located on the coast and is extremely beautiful!
E: What brought you to the United States?
R: Au Pairing brought me to America. I live with a family and take care of their children.
E: Where else have you lived or visited in the U.S.?
R: I’ve lived in Atlanta, Seattle and now here in San Antonio. I’ve visited California, Florida, New York and Kentucky.
E: Has anything about living here surprised you?
R: How friendly and trusting the people are as well as how safe it is!
E: Anything you expected to experience while living here?
R: I expected to see famous people everywhere. Still waiting to see one. I expected it to be beautiful and the beauty of this country blows my mind!
E: You’ve been involved with theatre for awhile now and are hoping to continue to study theatre in college. What other shows have you worked on?
R: I was involved in a number of shows such as Hairspray, Shrek the Musical, The Hiding Place, Twelfth night and Snow white.
E: What interested you about working on 9 Circles?
R: It’s such a real play and i saw it as an opportunity to learn more about mental illness and war. To gain a better understanding and earn a greater respect for soldiers. I want the audience to experience the rawness of this show. The real, honest stuff that some soldiers experience and have to deal with.
E: I hope that exact same thing. Ok, share with us a few things folks may not know about you.
