Trained as an actor musician, Helen Logan plays Astrobeth in the musical The Sunshine Ghost; a famous American astrologist and the love interest of Glen Duval, played by Barrie Hunter.

Previous to taking up the role in Scottish Theatre Producers and Festival and King's Theatre's co-production, she has embarked on 11 seasons at Pitlochry Festival Theatre, alongside a variety of theatre and film positions.

  1. How did you get into acting?
    I started out doing Youth Theatre at the age of 10 in Fife, and went onto study for a Foundation in Acting in Kirkaldy before moving to London for 10 years. Since moving back to Scotland, I've found that everyone in the sector knows each other, and with that, there's a lot of support within the theatre community.
     
  2. What has been your most memorable show or character that you have played?
    I've had the opportunity to play a number of roles, especially given the seasons at Pitlochry but Jean Brody was a great and memorable character to play.
     
  3. What drew you to The Sunshine Ghost?
    The director Ken Alexander, as I've had the pleasure of working with him and Rita (Movement Director) before. Alongside that, the opportunity to play in a musical was a draw as I have experience within this area.
