Pembrokeshire College A-level student Ruby Wilson has secured second place at the World Monologue Games Finals.
Sixteen-year-old Ruby, was one of over 3,000 competitors to register for the event, one of only 200 to make it through to the Regional Livestream Finals, and one of only 70 to make it through to the Global Finals which consisted of six categories broken down by age group, experience level and duration.
With the global pandemic closing film sets and theatres across the world, the contest was launched in March by Pete Malicki, an Australian playwright who wanted to give actors a platform through which to keep honing their skills during the coronavirus pandemic.
Competing in the Youth Category, against the top performers from around the world, Ruby’s winning performance was based on the anger felt following a difficult break-up and was co-written with friend Euan Sinclair. The category winner was Sami Hatem from Syria while third place went to Estee-Mari Smit from South Africa.
Following the competition Ruby commented: “I still can’t believe I even got into the globals in the first place, let alone being the only European in the top three. Being placed second was a huge shock – but in the best way possible”.
