THEATER | NOV. 14, 2018

Did you know you wanted to follow your parents into acting?

TYNE DALY: I was totally glamorized by their life and their work. We were watching them work a lot as little kids, on the stage and then in the television studios. From about 8 or so, I was completely certain and quite boringly focused. I couldn’t wait to get out of their house and to the Antrim Playhouse.
