Seeking Color In The US

Williamsburg Alex

Maggie OwensComment

Our interview with Alex, a character actor at Colonial Williamsburg, is short but sweet. It's mostly short because he was struggling to stay in character as a 17th-century cobbler's apprentice, while we battered him with questions like, "What's your favorite Starbucks order — a Tall Matcha Frappuccino or a Grande Matcha Frappuccino?" 

Where are you from? 

I'm from just out out town.

What's your favorite color and why?

Green because I love trees.  


And that's it!  Great interview right?

To be fair, the employees of Colonial Williamsburg are trained to answer questions about cobbling and soap making (and a whole bunch of other shit we didn't care about). Teenage boys pretending to be Colonial-Era shoemakers probably aren't regularly prepped for interviews for a blog about girls driving around in a Jetta looking for the rainbow.
