[LISTEN] 'David Genaro has colonised every cell inside me'

David Genaro
Actor Jamie Bartlett chats to Eusebius about his long-running role on Rythm City, his childhood and being a father.

Actor Jamie Bartlett says he has to work consciously to snap out of character in his popular role as the so-called wicked puppet master David Genaro.

Bartlett joined Eusebius McKaiser in studio to talk about his long-running role on Rythm City, being a father, his childhood as well as the art of acting.

He has played numerous other roles on stage and on television - including Mike O'Reilly on Isidingo.

There is definitely a kind of madness and I have to work consciously on snapping out of him [David Genaro]. He really has colonised kind of every cell within me.

Jamie Bartlett, Actor

My engagement with him is super quick. I know exactly where he lives and I know how his water lies and I am very quickly into his mercury in the morning.

Jamie Bartlett, Actor

I do find when I was doing Death of a Colonialist on stage, I was also walking around with him and it was taking its toll on me.

Jamie Bartlett, Actor

Genaro, I try to bring a lot more woman to him. He has hyper-masculinity but he has also got a very feminine side. I really try to paint those two sides to make him very interesting. I see so much of that in life, hyper-masculinity is often joined by the feminine as well.

Jamie Bartlett, Actor
