InterviewPaolo: You know we are preparing a new version of Romeo and Juliet, and we are looking for Juliet. Have you ever been to Verona? Emma: No, I’ve never been to Verona. Paolo: Do you see Juliet more as an innocent girl or more as a rebel? Emma: She’s both, she’s a paradox. She’s incredibly innocent, but I think that innocence gives her her strength and her wisdom. I think she’s not been tainted by the world yet, or told that things aren’t possible. Paolo: Do you believe in eternal love? Emma: I bloody hope so, I think so. Yes. I’m definitely holding out for that. Paolo: Has no one ever asked you to play Juliet? Emma: Many times. Paolo: And why did it never happen? Emma: It felt a little... on the nose. I wanted to try and do different things. Paolo: Do you think you’re ready now to play Juliet? Emma: Maybe. It’s just... dying on stage every time for months at a time seems tough. Emma gets on ‘stage’ to perform. Paolo: Now you are on stage Juliet! Emma: Now I’m on stage.
