Spotlight On…

Throughout its 40th anniversary year, Lung Ha will be spotlighting our Ensemble actors using specially commissioned portraits from photographer and long-time collaborator Peter Dibdin.

The photoshoot was a glamorous “Met Gala meets Night at the Theatre” extravaganza, during which our actors were given the opportunity to curate their own costumes and throw themselves into model poses and characterful performances, beautifully captured in this series and in our commemorative 40th anniversary Ensemble group photograph (above).

Along with these breathtaking portraits, our actors also share their answers to three intriguing questions:

1. What do you think is the most fabulous thing about being an actor?

2. If you could give an aspiring actor one piece of advice, what would it be?

3. 40 years is a big milestone during which we look back but also look ahead! What are your hopes or ambitions for the future? 

Click through below to see each entry in our Spotlight On… series, and keep an eye on this page as well as on All Edinburgh Theatre throughout the year to stay up to date with all of our actors’ stunning photographs and thoughtful words!
