After being given a press release pass to check out the new Mystery at Mansfield Manor game, I was kindly offered the chance to interview a few members of cast and crew and get all the questions I had about the game off my chest.
So, in the third and final part of interviews about Mystery at Mansfield Manor, I had the pleasure to talking with Tim Beresford, who plays the role of 'Colin Mansfield Junior'
Andy Ogier: Welcome Tim, thanks for taking time out to answer my
Tim: My pleasure.
Andy: Why don't we start off by telling our readers a bit about you?
Tim: I have been using acting to buy my groceries for about four years now. Before that I was acting but not buying many groceries. I also enjoy music. I grew up in the country then lived in Toronto for many years. Then I moved back to the country. I still work in Toronto and therefore, I now mostly live in my car and not in the house that I drive to Toronto each day to pay for by acting. I had a small microwave installed in my vehicle so I could cook the groceries that I bought with the money I made acting on the way to work. I have become a perpetual motion machine.
Andy: (Laughter). So which part do you play in Mystery at Mansfield Manor that helps you with your grocery bill? Tell us a bit about your character.
Tim: I play Colin Mansfield Jr. Colin is a twit. I myself don't care for him but it was interesting to play such a disreputable character. Fellow cast members had such strong reactions to what I was doing that it became quite real. Realness is, of course, important.
Andy: And that realness is clearly evident in your performance. What interested you most about playing a role in an interactive movie game?
Tim: So many days are spent doing what you did the day before. It takes someone with a unique and accessible idea like this to break that cycle. I was glad to have been chosen to participate.
