Actress ALYSSA SIMON talks THE LAST BAR AT THE END OF THE WORLD at Villain Media

Actress ALYSSA SIMON talks THE LAST BAR AT THE END OF THE WORLD at Villain Media.

Excerpts:

"Performing in Harakiri Kane was a gift! First of all, I got to play Orlagh, one of the most emotionally complex female roles I’ve ever done. All of Dean’s characters ask the “big questions,” i.e.; “Why are we here?” “What is our purpose?”

And the answer is almost always, to love, be loved and to be good to each other — unless you have to take revenge on a cannibalistic serial killer, but that’s another story! — Too often, female characters are written to just be the answer; the-one-who-loves is endlessly forgiving and who provides redemption. They are not often asking the questions themselves in order to make sense of their own lives, like Orlagh does and on a mountaintop no less.

Having had that great experience, I eagerly accepted the role of Judith before even reading the script."

"I think every play I do, see, and read changes me as an artist because it gives me an experience, something to think about, and something to learn. Because of The Last Bar at the End of the World, I now know who Max Beckmann is. I’ve learned more about Jack Kirby and I know how to pronounce Montmartre!"
