Eliza Hewitt Jones is performing in 2 become 1 and here are a few questions we sent her way
I did the festival last year and just had the most wonderful time. It honestly feels like another planet, it’s so creative and just a good atmosphere. I think I am going to want to come every year! Plus it is an amazing place to showcase new shows!
What keeps you going in this tough industry?
The thing that keeps me going as a performer is when I’m not working remembering how much I enjoy it when I am. That’s the key, just remember why you are doing it!
Why do you support Actor Awareness?
So many people want a career in the arts and many want to train but it’s become unaffordable. There are hardly any grants nowadays for people wanting to go to drama school etc, I know people who have had to drop out of training because they couldn’t afford to continue. It needs to be supported more so everyone who wants this career has the opportunity to pursue it, otherwise it becomes impossible, everyone should have the chance at a career that they want, it shouldn’t be a case of money, there should be more funding.
