Mike Shara is one of Canada’s most accomplished actors with multiple seasons at the Stratford Festival and the Shaw Festival. He covers a wide range of topics from his time at Theatre School to the limitations of acting in Canadian television. Mike's worst audition story is a classic and, even better, he has some great thoughts on how to avoid blowing the audition before you even open your mouth.
We discuss working with director Chris Abram on The Matchmaker and Othello.
Mike opens up about the struggles he faced learning Shakespeare and how participating in team sports impacts his work.
