On October 16, the Viu Crew of Vancouver Island University Department of Creative Writing & Journalism announced on Twitter that their department would host a Zoom interview with TV/film/theater actor Adrian Hough. The announcement caught my eye when Mr. Hough relayed it on Twitter the following day.
Frank Moher, the professor, invited members of the public to attend, and so I did. His CREW 241 session was held October 19 at 6:00 p.m. I had earlier interviewed Mr. Hough for an upcoming volume of The Animated Voice; this session gave me the opportunity to learn more about his career.
As listed by Professor Moher, the topics included: Preparing to perform a role, finding the unspoken in a script, dealing with sudden rewrites on set, the differences between acting for film, TV, and theatre, his recent work for streaming services like Netflix and Apple TV, and creating the role of Haytham Kenway in the video game Assassins Creed.
Professor Moher uploaded the session on Facebook on November 14. Enjoy!
One of Adrian Hough’s finest performances comes from voicing Sol Regem, the sun dragon from The Dragon Prince, from the first episode of the third season.
