Episode 19- June 9, 2014
Jim Mezon is in his 30th season at the Shaw Festival, one of North America’s most celebrated theatre festivals.
We discuss his journey from a job as a theatre janitor in Winnipeg to becoming a star at the Shaw Festival, where he’s currently celebrating his 30th season.
Artists, generally speaking, don’t follow the timelines of societal norms around big life decisions like getting married, buying a home & starting a family. In this episode I talk with Jim about how I waited until my 40′s to get married and start a family. Jim mentions he started a family later in life too and speaks candidly about the impact of having a child in his 50′s.
We also talk about the next generation of actors & how they are different than previous generations.
