Spend 69 seconds with Vancouver writer and performer Christopher Cook who can most recently be seen in The Verona Project, a new adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet at Pacific Theatre through July 7, 2011.
01Your first job.
Dishwasher at Soda’s – a 50s style diner that used to be up around Dunbar and 29th.
02The job you wanted as a child.
03The three things you would want with you on a deserted island.
Lots of sun screen (I burn so fast), lots and lots of chocolate, and the piled high bookshelf in my room that has all those books I haven’t quite gotten to yet…
My twin brother, Ian. That’s really not as vain as it might sound. My twin brother and I are fraternal – we look nothing alike, and we have completely different personalities. He really inspires me.
05Your biggest indulgence.
I believe that dessert is a fourth meal.
06One thing no one knows about you (and you’re willing to share).
I eat peanut butter right from the jar – big, big spoonfuls. Sometimes with chocolate chips sprinkled on top.
07Complete this sentence: I first kissed a boy …
… On a snowy night in the middle of the street in Montreal. Oh – that’s such a good memory
08The one thing you are most proud of.
I’m finally learning how to drive. I have my L. It’s been a long time coming.
09 One word your best friend would use to describe you.
10The one thing or place you always take visitors to see/do when they come to Vancouver.
The Endowment Lands out by UBC. I love getting lost in those woods.
