What attracted you to A Christmas Carol?
I knew that Tiny Tim was a nice kid and I really wanted to be Tiny Tim. I also knew the play happens in London and that it would have English accents. I really like talking in English accents.

What do you find appealing about your character?
Tiny Tim is so nice and kind and even though he is really sick he is still very happy and loves his family.

What do you want audiences to take away from the play?
I would like them to feel the true meaning of Christmas. It helps you remember that Christmas isn't about presents. It's about being kind to others and giving to those who don't have anything. It's also about loving your family.

And as Tiny Tim would say "God bless us All, God bless us everyone."
The LTA production of A Christmas Carol, directed by Robin Parker, runs through December 18, 2011. Tickets available online at
