.it’s kind of embarrassing.

.why do these things always happen to me.

Lets start with the picture, it’s taken in the end of January this year, I played Christine with Mathias Edenborn as Phantom. We had a great show. The applause are always fantastic cause the audience really love the show. And Christine has a very dramatic and big entrance in the applause. The blue peacock dress is the most beautiful dress I ever wore. It’s very heavy and it has many many layers of fabric and a beautiful train.

.I’m always scared shitless to trip on my dress and fall when I walk in.

I already stepped inside of the dress and slipped forward a couple of times – but thank gosh I never fell. That night I didn’t even do that, I was very graceful. Until Mathias gave me his hand; I stand on his right side and I have to walk in front of him to end up on his left side. He always gives me a little extra pull to help me around and I make a little jump and it always looks very nice – and then we bow togheter. We did the same like always, the problem was that I stepped on the dress and completely slid around him like a penguin on ice and fell on all four.

.the gasping of a full theater is very exciting to hear I have to say.

But I wish it wasn’t because of me falling on my head. While I was slipping around I was thinking “Oh, darn it! Why me, why do these things always happen to me?!” I landed on all four in this beautiful, blue sparkly, peacock dress with this beautiful necklace and curly long hair, I felt more like a fat seal than a penguin at this point. I more or less bounced up again, Mathias tried his best to help me. At this point I had this hysterical nervous laughter that I just couldn’t stop. The audience started laughing, my colleagues where already crying and I thought to myself, “Well it happened, lets enjoy it”, but to be honest I was a bit embarrassed, not because of the fall it self, or that at least 1000 people saw it but because these things always happen to me.

The other day I went out of the theater at the Stagedoor after the show, my colleagues where there, some fans and some other people waiting. I saw the boyfriend of one of my colleagues and I waved at him and yelled “Hey” … the problem was that I didn’t watch where I was going and I missed the first step of the stairs. I fell down the stairs like an “attempt-to-do-a-cartwheel-down-the-stairs-gone-terribly-wrong”.

.WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME.

I tried to reveal myself from my arms and legs wrapped in my bag while I yelled the line “That’s a way to make an entrance!”

I loved Phantom for ages, since I was a little girl I always wanted to play Christine. I sang her songs in front of the mirror so many times. And now I worked in “Love Never Dies” as cover Christine since August 2015 and yesterday I realized something…

I’ve been spelling her name like this : Christine Daeé and it should be Christine Daaé.

It’s embarrassing. I’m a disgrace to myself… how dare I? I knew I was bad with names in general, but this is just too funny. I tried to change it on the places online where I could find it, and I saw that in the beginning I spelled it correct. But after a while I guess I got tired. I know it’s a relatively “small thing” but you would think that someone who plays the part should know… Well this just shows that I’m human, and I rather fall on stage and down stairs than being “perfect” and boring.

  1. That is my favourite picture of you, I understand with the spelling, I always spelt it daee, it was not until recently that I found out it was daae. I always just say Christine because 99% of the time I will probably spell it daee.
