Hero played by Ony Uhiara
Much Ado About Nothing (2011)
Written by: William Shakespeare
Ony Uhiara made her debut at the Globe as Hero in the 2011 production of Much Ado About Nothing.
Ony talks about performing on the Globe stage; how this venue feels more like a rock concert than a theatre and how she is overcoming the unpredictable weather conditions.
Ony discusses her work on the text and movement, including the jig and the revelatory mask. Ony also relates a key moment in the play for her character; the set up of Beatrice with Benedick.
Ony talks about her key relationships in the play and how she feels Hero is much freer when she is around the other women. Ony also reveals what her costume will look like and also gives a few clues about the set.
In this introductory interview, Ony reveals how her childhood love of fairies began her interest in Shakespeare and how Hero's personality differs from the other lead woman of the play, Beatrice.
