I just see tons of people in my city who are so vastly intelligent, who because they have this ingrained humility, it gets in the way of them expressing themselves and showing how brilliant they are. What drama can do, especially with young people, is it can break through that. And it can give them the tools to walk into a room and express themselves and show them off to the best of their ability, whether they’re going to become actors or directors or whatever it is they’re going to become.

Drama teaches you to empathise and that stands you in good stead - whether you are going to be an actor, a director or a plumber - it improves your ability to connect with the world around you… That’s something I really believe in with drama, and it’s why I believe it should be taught in schools from an early age, and it’s why I am delighted to be part of creating the opportunity for young Scots to help them realise their potential through drama [scholarships] at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
