Amaya Perera as Sheherazade
What do you love about the role you’re playing and did your character have to go through any challenges? – “In terms of story line its one big challenge for her. She is telling stories to stay alive and even though that’s a challenge that’s what I love most about this character. It’s so imaginative, its unthinkable. You wouldn’t ever imagine that to stay alive one would be telling stories every night.
What was the biggest challenge taking this role? – “For the role itself I found Sheherazade very relatable but she’s a little bit evil. Understanding, giving my character more depth and presenting her in a way that would stay true to Sheherazade but also stay true to Amaya as an individual, that was the biggest challenge.”
Why did you want to be involved? – “Well, I’ve always loved drama and I’ve always been a very dramatic kid that’s for sure, I knew that I would genuinely regret my time as a school student if I hadn’t done a school production.”
