Interview with Shaun Williamson


You've appeared extensively on both TV and in the theatre, which do you prefer?


TV for exposure but theatre for the buzz. You can't beat being in a really good musical. I love singing.


What do you feel is your greatest achievement?


Getting into Drama School at the ripe age of 27. When I was 27 I was stacking shelves in Safeways. At 30 I was in Eastenders. Not bad going!


How do you like to spend your weekends?


Power walking in the countryside followed by traditional pursuits: Eating and Drinking. I enjoy playing Darts and Quizzing.


What piece of technology could you not live without?


Could live without all of it! Technophobe! I suppose Radio.
