  • Hello.  Did you take your name from a member of the famous Redgrave acting dynasty?  Do you act primarily on the stage or are we likely to have seen on screen?  As someone has said, there are many actors and artists of other sorts who are on the spectrum.  Dan Ackroyd is and so is Paddy Considine, who is also a director.  I always wanted to try it too, but I never had the nerve to join an amateur dramatic society or go to an audition.  Meeting people! In some ways, i feel like an actor every day of my life when I'm out among people.  Everyone puts on an act, but we Aspie people have to do it more than most!  Do you enjoy being in the spotlight because of the sense of power and control it gives you?  And when you come offstage or off camera, do you then feel the need to go and hide?  I read something in an interview with an autistic actor once in she said that once the performance was finished she couldn't get to her dressing room quickly enough and always used to wait until long after the performance before leaving the theatre so that she didn't have to face the crowds on terms that she no longer had control over.  I can't remember who it was.
