Time Traveller Jo
Pretend to be a Time Traveller day
Did you know that the 8th of December is Pretend to be a Time Traveller day? Another fun fact, did you know we have our very own Time Traveler in Theatr Brycheiniog? Or is she just pretending to be a Time Traveler?… We will never know!
Meet Jo, she is part of our amazing box office team, she is currently furloughed and spending some time in 2074 when she can, apparently everything is much better there.
Jo started cosplaying at Cardiff Comic Con in September 2013 and particularly enjoy dressing up as the TARDIS from Doctor Who. To date she has met 6 Doctor Who actors including Matt Smith & David Tennant; Jo doesn’t have a favourite but Sylvester McCoy was her first Doctor!
Jo and her husband David even had a Doctor Who themed wedding at the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff in July 2016 (the photo next to the flowery TARDIS is one of Jo’s wedding photos!)
We asked Jo what the best thing about cosplaying was. “The best thing about cosplaying is the admiration you receive from other fans who sometimes treat you like a famous person yourself, asking for photos with you, etc. and the actors you meet responding positively to the effort you have put into your home-made costumes (I made my TARDIS corset & 'light' head pieces myself)”.
Jo is also a member of Brecon Little Theatre and loves performing on stage, she says she especially loves Theatr Brycheiniog, and had a fantastic time performing as Oberon in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in May 2019 and she can't wait to be the Narrator in "The Wind in the Willows", hopefully at Theatr Brycheiniog in Spring 2021.
Thank you Jo for taking the TIME out of your day to answer these questions for us, safe travels!
