Research Interests

My PhD project is an archival study into the histories of character actors in Hollywood during the classical era. In particular, it focuses on the shifting definitions and classifications of small-part players as well as the employment, casting and marketing strategies of the studios when it came to these actors. It further explores the contemporaneous reception and wider cultural significance of character acting during this period.
