Tamara Rojo And Carlos Acosta On Innocence, Aging, And ‘Romeo And Juliet’

Acosta: “In the beginning when you see Romeo and the other kids they just want to fight and joke around with harlots. … But then you witness a transformation inspired by powerful love. When I first played this role I was too young to understand that complexity.” Rojo: “I think life experience gives you things but it also takes away. It takes away naiveté. And it takes away belief.”
