Who are you ?

Marhaba. My name is Rachel Leung.

Who are you playing ?
I play the Egyptian Steward ( yes, hard to believe but use your imaginations)!
What’s she like then?
I am loyal to my Captain and take my job very seriously . In other words I do not want to lose my job.  I have little tolerance for these rich, arrogant Europeans who do not think I the English understand. I understand very well.
Your favourite line ?
My favourite of my 6 lines is “Get all afternoon sun” Actions speak louder than words in my case !
Who did it ?
Keep your eye on me and that sexy French maid, Louise may  know more than she makes out.

Who are you playing ?
I am playing Miss Ffoliot-ffoulkes in Murder on the Nile.
What’s she like ?
It is a wonderful part, as she is an old bag so I can just act naturally!! She has no time for anyone or anything other than herself and her petty needs, and commands attention no matter what else has been going on.
I understand you have a very special connection with the play ….
31 years ago today, (8th Feb) I arrived at the Mena House Hotel, where the Mostyns stayed on their arrival in Egypt (p27 in the script), before beginning a cruise on the Nile. Like them, I was on my honeymoon, arranged as a surprise destination for me by my (now late) husband. 6 days later, there was a knock on the door of the cabin: the steward was delivering a Valentine’s card to me that my husband had passed to him earlier.
What’s your favourite line ?
I had it in here before I went into dinner last night
Oooh -err …..
Who did it then ….
So if you ask me who do I think did it in the play, I have to go for the Steward, who has been asked just once too often to do yet another favour, and has had enough. Notice that although the Steward does not say too much, they are creeping around shiftily in many scenes. Hmm…. I wonder why……

What’s your name ?

Richard Pink 

Who are you playing ? 

The very reverend and totally avuncular Canon Ambrose Pennyfather 

What’s he like ? 

Think Columbo in a dog collar and you won’t be far wrong. He has the gift of eloquence ( he does – I don’t ),  most people trust him but he’s got a twinkle in his eye and he’s possibly got a more colourful past than he’s letting on.

Who do you think did it ?

Much as I hate to say it – I think it might have been my own niece Kay – she’s got too much money, is a bit too removed from reality and never really thinks of the consequences of her actions – maybe she’s got bored with a few people ….

Murder on the Nile – she is ‘alf French and she ‘as ze hot blood – but did she do it ?

Another of our characters is up for your scrutiny …….

btf

What’s your name?

Becky Faulkner

What’s your Character and what they are like? 

Jacqueline De Severac

Jacqueline is a strong, independent woman who knows what she wants and how to get it. She’s harmless but with one look she can make the fiercest of people quake in their boots!

Your favourite line from the play ( your own)  –

‘I’m a devil I am….a devil!’

Who you think did it and why ?

I think the Canon looks a bit shifty. He’s too busy trying to pin things on other people. Is this so people won’t look to closely at him? He needs money and how else could he get it?! Maybe him and Simon are in it together?

Quelle est votre ligne préférée –  They have the hot blood! They hate, perhaps, these fair English women who are so arrogant……

Qui a fait çaI think that shifty Steward did it as he had access to the bedroom & probably got caught going through her drawers !!!

Ooh err missus – you want to watch her – oh sorry – thats Up Pompeii …

Murder on the Nile – nice niece or nasty niece?

Next in our series of meet the cast – and the plot is thickening …..

Who are you – Lisa Turpcu
Who are you playing  – I play Christina Grant, who is travelling as her overbearing, snobbish aunt’s companion and general dog’s body. Christina has led a somewhat sheltered life and finds life on the cruise “just too thrilling for words!” Christina finds fellow traveller, Smith, just outrageous and vehemently rejects his offer of marriage. She doubts he would make a reliable husband but is he beginning to wear her down…could he provide the excitement and escape in her otherwise stifling, equable life?
What’s your favourite line – My favourite line in the play is “You ought to be ashamed of your foolishness. The trouble with you is that you’re not serious.”
Who do you think did it – I think there are a number of clever smoke-screens to deflect from the real murderer. I think the second bead seller has been rebuffed once too often, snapped, done the deed and gone out in a blaze of glory on Whoopsadaisy, his favourite donkey.

Murder on the Nile -was it one of the locals ?

Another chance to meet one of the characters – this time we are talking to one of the strange and colourful local characters – just cos he doesn’t say much – doesn’t mean he didn’t do it !

Whats your name – Greg Hill

Who are you in the play – I’m a bead seller who is just trying to get by day by day .

Your favourite line – My donkey “whiskey and soda”-that very good donkey.

Who do you think did it  – I think that Miss FFoliot-FFoulkes did it because she felt threatened about not being the wealthiest or grandest on the boat and all rich people are very greedy selfish like her.
