Michelle Gomez 28 April 2008
Michelle Gomez as Kate in The Taming the Shrew
From her Glasgow childhood to comedy and the RSC

The actress Michelle Gomez is perhaps best known on television as the insecure footballer’s wife in The Book Group, and the bonkers, man chasing, staff liaison officer in Green Wing. She talks to Jane about her latest acting challenge, playing sharp-tongued Kate in The Taming of The Shrew, Shakespeare’s play about the battle for power between men and women.

The Taming of the Shrew  is on at The Courtyard Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon until 25 September

The Royal Shakespeare Company
