Over the next few weeks continue to introduce this year’s RBC Emerging Artists, a program dedicated to the artistic development of young ensemble members. We are pleased to introduce you to Shauna Thompson.
This is Shauna’s second season at The Shaw. Here’s your chance to know more about her:
Q What has been your biggest lesson at the Shaw Festival so far?
A Always triple check the daily [schedule] so that you don’t miss anything!
Q If you were not a professional artist/actor what would you be doing?
A I initially went to university with the intention of being a veterinarian, so I’d most likely be doing that if I wasn’t acting.”
Q What moment in your career are you most proud of?
A Graduating from the National Theatre School was a big accomplishment for me; three years of literal blood, sweat, and tears”
Q What goals have you set for yourself in your career?
A I’d eventually love to star in a Jordan Peele movie because he is revolutionizing the horror genre and I’m very intrigued by what he’s saying through his work.
RBC Emerging Artists are supported by the RBC Foundation.
