Musician and actor Eddie Perfect, 41, is nominated for Best Original Score (for musical Beetlejuice) at the Tony Awards (airs Mon., Jun. 10 at 10am; Foxtel Arts) and tells us the last …
… awards show he enjoyed
The Logies. If you can’t have a good time at the Logies you’re dead inside. It’s the most fun event. I don’t think any awards ceremony will measure up to how crazy, funny, random and boozy the Logies are.
… film he saw that he felt was underappreciated
I took my family to Mary Poppins Returns and we absolutely loved it. The score was incredible. I didn’t want it to end and it reminded me of how easy it is in adulthood to lose a sense of wonder at the world.
… time he ate something specifically Australian
We have Vegemite in our house. I’ve discovered my favourite fusion of New York and Australia is a bagel with butter and Vegemite.
… time he spoke to a former Offspring castmate
I had a beer with Rick Davies in Melbourne before I left. Oh, no, I lie – Jane Harber came to opening night of Beetlejuice!
… time he was recognised
Yesterday, on the subway, three Australian women were waiting to get the train and recognised me from Offspring, so I chatted to them.
… time he felt nervous
I feel like I’ve been running on nervous energy for five years. I’ve been going through nominations stuff like luncheons and press events. And I got invited to Anna Wintour’s house for a dinner party. All those things are incredibly nerve-racking.
