DRAMA QUEEN: "I cannot see myself doing anything else," Robinson says of acting.
"It feels like big shoes to fill, but honestly I'm very humbled by it," shares actress Julene Robinson in response to the critical acclaim that's been coming her way in the wake of stellar performances in such memorable theatre pieces as Me and My White Boy, Hairpeace and this month's University Players musical offering Jonkanoo Jamboree, in which she impressively holds her own with the likes of seasoned stage performers Fabian Thomas and Nadean Rawlins, whom Robinson readily identifies as a major influence on her young career.
By all appearances, while Julene is fast developing a sense of leading-lady responsibility, she brings life, a delightful sense of humour and unbridled enthusiasm to theatre. By far, a powerhouse Jamaican actress for a new generation. "I cannot see myself doing anything else," confesses the 25-year-old Alpha Convent of Mercy alum, who majored in Chemistry at Mona. "Acting makes me very humble because I get the privilege of walking in another person's shoes. That's what I respect most about it."
