Everyone knows what an actor does, but it takes a lot more than just the people on stage to make a show. Please join us as we quiz people in all sorts of cool theatre jobs on their work, what it involves, and how you could do the same. Up this week is Jacob Sparrow, who works at the National Theatre as casting assistant.
