Romeo played by Sam Valentine
Romeo & Juliet (2015)
Written by: William Shakespeare
Sam makes his Globe debut as Romeo in the Globe on tour Romeo & Juliet.
“Then obviously he meets Juliet and that throws his life upside-down - because rather than just projecting what he thinks he wants it just smashes him in the heart. Bang! Deal with that Romeo!”
In his second interview Sam talks about the difference for Romeo between Rosaline and Juliet, the way the language of the play feeds into itself and what he’s been doing in rehearsals so far.
“When Juliet says lightning and then Romeo picks it up right at the end, it’s that kind of genius through line that you just don’t see or hear unless you're really immersed in it.”
Sam discusses getting to grips with the play and discovering new elements to it, and his first impressions of Romeo in his first interview.
