Well as they say, it's not what you know it's who you know.

Why are we discussing the Strallens after somebody makes an uncalled joke? This is a thread for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Firstly, it's not her job to be nice at stage door. Secondly, what has that got to do with her talent? If we were going to discuss them at least make some relevant points.

What is it with the stage door thing, if the actors are not nice then they must be horrible and if they are nice to the fans at the stage door then they must be the sweetest people on earth.  Sure, some of them maybe lovely, some maybe horrible (just like any walk of life), but the stage door is not the real world and the person you meet is not reality. For many actors/performers is just another performance

And some of them just want to get home after work.  You wouldn't like to be hounded when you walk out of your place of work.

The Strallens I've met have been very professional, serious and sincere about what they do.  Good luck to all of them!

I feel sorry for the actors being accosted at stage door by tragic people with wipe down photos of them and marker pens. They must just want to go home after work

Maybe some, but some also like the applause, which also means they like the recognition at stage doors, and contact with the audience.

and back on topic............... I will be interested to see how they work the Oompa Loompa thing with fully grown actors, also interested, funnily enough, in the understudy list, not that I don't want to see the current cast as it is, but I find understudies generally do a better job of a role, perhaps they have more enthusiasm as it is a role they dont normally play

Seeee ya George..... See ya sunshine.... w****nker!
I hate you! You're a b*stard! ..... Ohhhhhh sh*t!
I've seen the real world from my caravan window...... and they can keep it!
