On the Couch with Frank Kerr

REBEL - A New MusicalWho is Frank Kerr?
Frank Kerr!

What would you do differently to what you do now?
Drink more water? Eat more vegetables? I wouldn’t do much differently in my life to be honest, pretty content and happy at this point. If I was smart / had any idea I would’ve maybe tried to be an Astronaut… Space is cool! Haha…

Who inspires you and why?
My dad is my inspiration, he’s a good honest man who takes care of himself and more importantly the people around him. He always works hard to achieve his goals and pushes himself very hard to get there. He’s also very funny so that’s a plus.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
My main concern is the environment, so I’d like to inspire big business and governments to bring down their carbon emission that’d be great. Personally, I’ll do my part. Keep cups, no single use plastics and I’ve been thinking about cutting meat out of my diet. Every little bit helps!

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Probably somewhere I haven’t been yet. Mexico? I love Mexican food and tequila… so that sounds like a dream destination. Although heading back to my home state of Tassie is always a relaxing time.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
Seems a bit obvious, but probably go see some theatre, go out for dinner and a few cocktails. Woods of Windsor, 1806, Murmur, Radio Mexico for some quesadillas. (Best Mexican restaurant in Melbourne by the way)

What are you currently reading?
My script for Rebel… I’m not a big book guy, sorry! My friends and I are working on some short film ideas, so reading those scripts? Does that count?

What are you currently listening to?
Allen Stone – Sunny Days! Allen Stone is the GOAT… Panic! at the Disco, John Mayer, 80s bangers for a road trip and maybe throw in some Broadway soundtracks.

Happiness is?
A great lense to look at life through. Happiness is everywhere it just depends on how you look at it. People call me the eternal optimist, happiness is great! Haha. ALSO happiness is having a laugh and a sing with your friends.

What does the future hold for you?
Oh dear, who knows! I’m sure it’ll be fun though. Probably some more acting and some more music if I’m lucky.
