E!: And congratulations on your play, 2:22 A Ghost Story. How do you stay in physical and mental shape during what must, at times, feel like running a marathon?

TF: I let Willow my dog do the taking care of, she does most of the hard work. I just look after the house. But it’s been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. We’ve got eight shows left and then that will be it, 140, 150-odd shows. I can’t think about it logically ’cause I’ll just burst into tears. It’s a completely new discipline—for me, it’s the closest thing to a 9 to 5 as possible. Every other thing I’ve ever done has taken me away from home for limited stints of time and then sort of plunked me back, for a few months or a few weeks, then taken me out again. Which is not great for family life. My dog doesn’t appreciate it. 

E!: What have you enjoyed most about doing theater?

TF: Usually you get a few hours to knock out a scene, or a few days if you’re lucky, but to spend 17 weeks with just this one piece of work and really trying to get it right—it’s been highly enjoyable. I’m really proud of all the Potter fans that I’ve managed to lure into the theater. I think there’s been a lot of people that probably didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as they did. Or as much as I did—I saw it five times before I was in it. I thought that was half the reason I got the role [laughs], but apparently not.
