Making his film debut in Wolf Creek 2, Philippe Klaus has been in such Australian dramas as Rake and Home & Away. He’s appeared on stage with the Old Fitz Theatre, and toured his one man show with the Adelaide and Melbourne Fringe Festivals. His next gig, though, is a bit of a contrast – appearing in the title role in Ibsen’s Peer Gynt, the next show from Endangered Production, from June 30 to July 3 at the Paddington RSL. It’s to be performed as it was meant to be – with singers, actors, dancers and a 30 piece orchestra – promising romance, sin, salvation, and some heavenly music.
Philippe talks with Simon Moore about the upcoming production of Peer Gynt and shares great insights into acting for the different mediums of theatre, film and television, the extra skills one can acquire along the way, plus his love of jazz.
