Q: What was your first experience with the Lion King story?
A: My first experience with Lion King was when I was very young, I loved the movie and the characters. The hyenas were always so funny to me, I can’t believe I get to play my favorite Lion King character, Ed.
Q: Why do you think people relate to Lion King?
A: People relate to Lion King because life never goes as expected. This story tells a tale about having to overcome your past, which is hard.
Q: What has the story of Lion King taught you?
A: “Oh, yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.” - Rafiki. This line has helped me a lot, instead of hiding who I was in the past, I can learn from it and help others not to go down a bad path.
