Shapeshifters

5 Feb 2019

At first glance, a child actor and a Black working woman have little in common – until you realise they both work in worlds where they can’t really be themselves. To get paid, to survive, they must perfect the art of shapeshifting. Zawe Ashton, playwright, actress and author of Character Breakdown – a book that chronicles her life in front of the camera since age six – discusses this age-old art with Candice Carty-Williams, whose fictional character for her début novel, Queenie, is a skilled shapeshifter.
