We asked you to send us in some questions to ask the wonderful Kerry Ellis during our recent interview. We chose the best three and asked the lady herself…
Kerry: I get asked this question a lot and it’s a tricky one. To be honest I just think people just need to love it and be passionate about it because it’s a really tricky business. It can be quite painful at times but it can also be brilliant. It can be the best job in the world but you can also be out of work a lot. So you have to have that passion and really love it to have a career in this industry.
Kerry: The hardest part for me was being so young and notknowing who you are and what you want out of your career/life. I went to college at 16 and looking back it just seems so young. It’s almost like an extension of school. For me, if I went to college later, I would have used the college better and applied myself more. When you’re so young, you still feel like it’s school
A college/training is a real privilege and you should really use it so make yourself the best you can be.
Kerry: That’s a good question. There is a lot of people actually. I’ve actually recently been talking about something to do with Ava Cassidy, her music was fabulous and I think her story would be quite interesting. I’ve never played Evita yet. Marilyn Monroe. There really is so many people. I’d like to do something with real depth that’s really meaty to get my teeth into.
