Part 2 – ‘Instinct, love, acting’ The conversation continues with Barzin Akhavan (Amir), Craig Piaget (Young Amir) and Lowell Abellon (Hassan) from the ‘The Kite Runner’ (read review) play based on the novel by Bay Area native Khaled Hosseini.

We hope you enjoy this series. Part 3 should be released later this week. It will end with a feisty stage “combat demo”. What exactly is that? Stay tuned and you may just learn a few little tricks from a talented actor to use in your next rumble.

Once again, our thanks to the San Jose Rep staff and Michelle for allowing us access. And to Barzin, Craig and Lowell for being so generous with their time.
