Research Interests

My PhD project focuses on character actors in classical Hollywood cinema of the 1930s and 40s, with a particular focus on the comedic genres. In particular, my focus is on the scene stealing acts, comic turns and sideshows instigated by the most eccentric minor players. I am interested in exploring why comic minor characters were so pervasive at this particular time in Hollywood and what role secondary performance played within the context of the studio system.
