The life of an actor: An interview with Derék Bence

It was a rather warm afternoon when I arrived into the heart of Budapest, searching for the illustrious Magyar Theatre, which plays a plethora of famous Hungarian classics such as ‘A tizedes meg a többiek’ and ‘Harisnyás Pippi’, well-known among those who often frequent theatres. I paced around slowly and steadily as I observed various actors coming in and out of the back door, taking a moment of respite between their tiring rehearsals. Stopping nearby, I looked around and happily waved at Derék Bence who was busy discussing something with a fellow actress of his. After shaking hands and welcoming each other Bence ushered me into the building, leading me to room 22, a dressing room, where we could converse in peace and comfort.

Interview with Dénes Száraz

I had the chance to meet Dénes at a vegan restaurant near Ferenciek Square. It was a very pleasant surprise. He has a very charismatic personality and his down-to-Earth attitude made me feel as if I was having a nice conversation with a friend instead of interviewing
