There’s nothing quite like being on stage, doing what you do, just trying to keep one character away from another. I mean to be able to hold a man back is hard. Yesterday, I learned how hard it was. So did my nose.
The character slipped out of reach and another on stage had to help. Apparently my nose got in the way. I tried to stay in the scene as much as possible, but my nose was numb. All I could think was “please don’t start bleeding!”
After that scene the only thing I had time for was my costume change and a quick look in the mirror. Luckily it was not bleeding. And I was able to finish the show without any other mishaps!
Acting is a dangerous job!
