[Interviewer] So tell me what your favorite birthday was.
00:02
Not year, but birthday memory.
00:07
Um ... oh!
00:13
I had an amazing birthday.
00:15
I was doing Macbeth on the west end stage.
00:19
And the cast decided to throw me a surprise party.
00:24
Which was just amazing.
00:26
Was just amazing of them,
00:28
and I got an invitation, we went to this bar underground,
00:30
and then they invited all my other best friends
00:33
and so it was a surprise they were coming.
00:35
So it was all jubilant.
00:37
And there were shots and all sorts of things.
00:38
And then a certain point
00:39
they did this sort of screening of the entire cast.
00:44
No, it's just the men in the cast.
00:46
It was a very men heavy cast.
00:48
Singing a song from it.
00:49
Like a 90's boy band.
00:51
I can't remember, really awful,
00:52
I can't remember what the song it,
00:54
but I think it might be like
00:55
another level of Boyz II Men or something.
00:57
And they did this whole,
00:59
without me knowing about it,
01:00
this whole music video
01:01
of them in various locations.
01:03
A lot of the time in their underwear.
01:05
All like covered in blood from doing Macbeth
01:08
and all like wearing my costume.
01:10
I don't know when they had found the time.
01:11
But it was like the most amazing thing
01:13
I've ever seen in my life.
01:16
And just felt really kind of loved.
01:18
It was really lovely.
01:20
It was really nice.
01:21
[Interviewer] That's a great birthday memory.

It was a great birthday, actually.
