On the Couch with Danielle King

Danielle King Arts Review On the CouchWho is Danielle King?
Wife, mother, actress – to various degrees of success on any given day. I’m rehearsing a new play called Night Slows Down, written and directed by Phillip James Rouse for KXT bAKEHOUSE, opening in November.

What would you do differently to what you do now?
Remember to pack a lunch.

Who inspires you and why?
Anyone who can keep their head whilst all around them are losing theirs.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Vote Yes for a start.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Anywhere we can pitch a tent and have a beer as the sun goes down over the ocean.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
We’ve recently moved down to the south coast so would use their visit to explore bakeries, restaurants and bars in the name of hospitality and gluttony.

What are you currently reading?
John Le Carre’s A Legacy of Spies, my script, and, when home, The Gruffalo – again and again and again… the mouse saw a bit and the bit looked good.

What are you currently listening to?
Lots of podcasts to keep me awake on the long drive home post show – WTF with Marc Maron, Ear Hustle, West Wing Weekly, Slow Home, This American Life, The Honest Actors Podcast…

Happiness is?

Danielle can be seen in Don’t Look Away & bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company’s production of Night Slow Down – currently playing at the Kings Cross Theatre until 9 December 2017. For more information, visit: www.kingsxtheatre.com for details.
