Here at Absolute Music Chat we are celebrating our 3-year anniversary. We have made it a point to interview a wide range of actors, from those who are well-established in the profession, to relative newcomers who are making waves.
Our website has grown enormously in terms of reader numbers during this time. In the first 3 months of 2019 we have almost equalled the whole of 2018 and have already quadrupled our first year readership.
Both of us would like to take this opportunity to thank, not only those featured in the montage/article, but everyone who has been so incredibly generous with their time in allowing us to interview them. We thank you all – interviewees, agents, readers friends and IT team – for your continued support. We really appreciate it and very much look forward to bringing you lots more exciting interviews this year, and in the years to come.
Below you will find a little about each of the featured actors and handy links to their full interviews with us.
