RSC Associate Artist David Threlfall speaks to Zoe Lambert, who can also currently be seen in The Comedy of Errors at the Barbican. They talk about David’s theatre career, from starting out at the RSC, to playing Tommy Cooper and Frank Gallagher in Shameless. Zoe asks David where the character of Frank came from, and David explains why he loves working and how he approaches the characters he plays. He also tells us who he would most like to share an interval drink with, in what would be the busiest interval we’ve had so far in the series.
