Original title: Shakespeare Characters I've Played, Ranked By How Much I Behaved Like Leo DiCaprio During Rehearsals
6. Viola, Twelfth Night
Wrapped myself and bought a men's wallet to play this role.
5. Titania, A Midsummer Night's Dream
Bought black lipstick and a corset to make me look more fairy-y.
4. Helena, A Midsummer Night's Dream
Happened to be actually fighting with the girl cast as Hermia over boys when we were performing—mostly on accident, but it added to the performance.
3. Miranda, The Tempest
Used this as an excuse to chop my hair off, and I tore and re-stitched the outfit Miranda would be wearing on the island, because I figured she'd have made her own clothes.
2. Mark Anthony, Julius Caesar
Would shut myself in a dark closet for several minutes prior to going on stage to react to the death of Caesar.
1. Juliet, Romeo and Juliet
Successfully pursued a forbidden romance with the male lead to achieve this performance.
