Episode 19- June 9, 2014

Jim mezon, interview, podcast, shaw festival

Jim Mezon has performed in over 30th seasons at the Shaw Festival, one of North America’s most celebrated theatre festivals.

We discuss his journey that began with him working as a theatre janitor in Winnipeg to becoming a respected actor, director and educator.

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.
