Had you read Treasure Island as a child?

I had it read to me a very long time ago and I’d seen the movie and loved it.

2. What do you like best about the character of Jim Hawkins?

His sense of adventure, his stealth and his brilliant use of initiative. He knows more than everyone else on the ship.

3. Which character is the most challenging?

Probably Silver. His voice was the hardest to master.

4. What is your favourite part of the story?

I like the scary blind beggar scenes, I can imagine jack being terrified when the man grabbed his arm.

5. If you were acting in Treasure Island, which character would you like to portray?

I think I’d like to portray Long John Silver. He’s the legendary pirate. And I love parrots.

6. What’s your favourite children’s book?

Enid Blyton’s Famous Five and Secret Seven books. I used to listen to the audiobooks while on rainy caravanning holidays in Tenby when I was a kid.
