Cultural Life: April Pearson, actress

The Independent Culture


I'm really into Spanish film and Almodovar particularly. My dad bought me the box set for my birthday ("All About My Mother" and "Talk To Her" to name two favourites). In the cinema I loved "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "The Boat that Rocked".


I can't miss an episode of "The Apprentice". It is car-crash TV. Sometimes I find myself hiding behind a cushion. My guilty pleasure is "Britain's Next Top Model".


At the moment I love all the party/summer tunes that are around. Dizzee Rascal's "Bonkers", The Prodigy's "Warrior's Dance" remind me of festivals and picnics on the grass... come on summer!


Currently reading "Double Cross" by Malorie Blackman. I was addicted to her "Noughts and Crosses" series. Just finished "The Savage Garden" (not the band) by Mark Mills.


I recently appeared in "Suspension" by Catherine Johnson at the Bristol Old Vic. I saw "A Little Night Music" at the Menier Chocolate Factory, and "Brief Encounter" by Kneehigh at the Haymarket cinema. I try to see all the Kneehigh productions.

'Tormented' is out now
