We were fortunate to have actor Lucy Eaton come talk to us about her career, both as an actor and co-founder of the incredibly successful theatre company, Go People. Following a degree at Cambridge, Lucy trained at LAMDA. In an informal and entertaining discussion, Lucy answered questions from students and Mr Attenborough, discussing the value of a university experience and the ways to deal with periods of instability. Talking about her theatre company, she discussed the huge benefits of tackling the theatre industry as a team rather than an individual and the necessity for gutsy risk-taking. Lucy is currently starring in ‘A Day in the Death of Joe Egg’ in the West End alongside Toby Stevens and Claire Skinner. The highly-acclaimed, poignant comedy explores the difficulties of raising a severely disabled child. Lucy plays a darkly hilarious woman, Pam, whom she manages to make likeable despite Pam’s horrendous comments on disability and distaste of anything ‘non-physically attractive’.
