Flockhart Misses Theatre Acting
The former Ally MCBeal star has always preferred stage work, because it challenges her as an actor more than TV.
She says, "You put on your own make-up and wig, and make yourself into someone else. There is nothing like a live audience. There is also the thing about taking the journey from start to finish in a live play, when anything can go wrong. That risk factor is exciting.
"At the risk of sounding pretentious, I remember doing Romeo and Juliet and after the play was over thinking, 'I really feel as if I have lived that'. It was worth it to see the effect a play written 400 years ago had on the audience."
