Grady Savage as Carol Henderson
Q – Before you started working on this production, what was your perspective on the role of women during WWII?
Prior to this production, I had very little knowledge of women’s role during WWII,to be honest.
Q – What kind of job do you think you would have had during WWII?
Well, like Carol, I do wear glasses, but unlike Carol I don’t think I’d be brave enough to fly without them, so I feel like I would’ve “done my part” in some kind of factory job at home.
Q – What or who do you draw on for inspiration for your role?
Just in researching the incredible women who were a part of the WASP program I’ve found a ton of inspiration for my role.
Q – What woman in your life influences you the most and why?
My mother has always had and continues to have an extremely profound influence on my life. I always strive to be as kind, thoughtful, and selfless as she is. Also, I have an incredible group of women in my life who I am proud to call friends. They are constantly encouraging me, challenging me, and sharing their art and kindness with the world in beautiful ways.
Q – What do you hope our audience gains from seeing Decision Height?
I hope our audience gains insight on this previously disregarded program. I hope our audience sees the bravery, strength, and endurance of these characters and, therefore, the real Women’s Airforce Service Pilots of our history.
