Rebecca Oldfield on octopus embraces


We asked Rebecca Oldfield, who plays Sarah in Octopus, yes, you guessed it...eight questions.

How do you feel about this Octopus?

Excited. A bit nervous, but looking foward to getting to grips with this eight-legged creature.

Why should Edinburgh want some Octopus?

Edinburgh will LOVE and embrace this Octopus. It's diverse, thought-provoking, hysterically funny, infuriatingly accurate. It has music, attitude and a lot of heart! I think it will fit right in at Edinburgh.

You play Sarah. What's with her?

Sarah's convinced she's 100% British (whatever that means). She has a lot to prove!

How does she feel about octopuses/octopi?

Slightly cautious. She doesn't know much about them.

We've just had the EU referendum. Which way would your character vote?



Because she doesn't believe in borders, loves other cultures, and definitely isn't racist...

Do you think octopuses are going to take over the world?

Yes I think that would be lovely.

Are you an octopus?

I think we all are in different ways. That's the brillliant thing.
