"Doing plays again has just made me a lot happier. So the decision to come [to The Old Globe] was pretty easy. To be around great actors. And I feel I learn from people like Philippe. And it makes me happy."

"Enter Mahira Kakkar, as the smugly superior Adine, and Philippe Bowgen, as the ardent Mesrin. Needless to say, they have already fallen in love with each other."
