Get to know Hiliary! :
TCTP: The characters that live after the incident spend a lot of time looking over their shoulders. What is one of your biggest fears?
HB: One of my biggest fears is death. I'm afraid to lose those close to me. I also loathe and am a wimp when it comes to spiders.
TCTP: To deal with what happened that night, some characters turn to certain means of escape. What is your biggest vice?
HB: A vice I turn to quite often is wine. Specifically red!
TCTP: Tattoos/Body Alterations (best way we could say it with no spoilers) are are a recurring image in the play. Do you have any tattoos/piercings, etc?
HB: I have a tattoo on my right foot. It is faded and needs some touching up.
TCTP: The incident started from a group of teenagers having a night of dumb, reckless, fun. What’s a dumb thing you did when you were young?
HB: I went to college in Reno, NV. I made too many stupid mistakes to even count when I was young. Not sure how I came out alive, let alone graduate.
TCTP: The majority of the characters are coupled up at the beginning of the play. Who was your first young love? Bonus question: Are you still together?
HB: My first love was when I was 18. He was from my hometown. We are no longer together, but I have been happily married to my best friend, Taylor for 3 years.
