Harry Hadden-Paton Interview
Q: How are you enjoying your time in New York so far, sir?
Harry Hadden-Paton: I’m doing very well, thank you. They do like their awards over here, don’t they?!
Q: They do indeed! Have you grown accustomed to all the Awards Season hype yet?
Harry Hadden-Paton: (Laughs) No, no, no. It’s mad!
Q: Now, you’ve been no stranger to the stage in London, but what have been some of the personal highlights of your New York stage debut so far?
Harry Hadden-Paton: The support over here is incredible. From the audience, firstly, the reception you get is more than anything I’ve experienced in London, but also the theatre – I mean, I’d never done a musical before, so I don’t know if this is normal – but the whole building is in support of this show in a way that I’ve never experienced.
There’s a 30-piece orchestra. There are 37 people in the cast. It’s a huge machine and I’m a tiny cog in it. I’ve never felt that kind of collaboration in quite such a way. It’s an incredibly exciting place to be.
Q: I love the fact that Lincoln Center Theater chose to cast your character of Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle the same age. What is the significance of that for you?
Harry Hadden-Paton: Well, it meant I had a chance at getting the part (laughs)… I honestly didn’t think I had a chance. But I’m very glad they did. The significance is that we enter the space as equals, which is lovely especially in today’s day and age with all the conversations going on around gender equality at the moment. I think it’s really important. In this production, at least, I feel we leave them both as equals as well. I think that’s an important message and it’s creating lots of debate and the audience have lots to talk about afterwards.
Q: My colleague and I were also debating the ending after seeing the show. What is your own take on the ending?
Harry Hadden-Paton: Well, I don’t want to spoil the ending in any way. I’m just saying that we need to leave them as equals. If you see the show, you’ll know what I mean.
Q: And, on a completely different topic, are we likely to see any more action from the hallowed halls of “Downton Abbey” again? What’s the situation with Bertie Pelham?
Harry Hadden-Paton: Ah well there’s always chat, isn’t there. There is a film version, apparently, moving forward. But I’m still awaiting confirmation on that. But fingers crossed! It would be lovely to see those guys again!
Well, until then, sir. Keep enjoying your time in New York and keep up the fine work in My Fair Lady!
