The last and best part as we got to interview Ms. Knowlton once again, her most surprising role of this year which is now a recurring role of Lady Buella Percy at the New Jersey Renaissance Faire.
EJ: So, you said you were surprised about becoming a recurring character of the New Jersey Renaissance Faire, what surprised you?
KK: I guess it’s not that much of a surprise; it was just a lot of excitement when I found out that this year I was returning as Lady Buella Percy. This is my first recurring role with the New Jersey Renaissance Faire and I hope I stay Lady Buella for a long time.
EJ: What can you tell us about the plot of this year’s faire?
KK: All I can say is that is revolves around Shakespeare. Shakespeare’s fans will not be disappointed. Shakespeare is a huge chunk of history and we are honored to have the theme around him and his works.
EJ: Tell us about Lady Buella Percy.
KK: She is the sister of the Duke of Northumberland. She’s a little on the crazy side, although all Percy’s are, so it’s hard to tell who’s crazy and who’s not. She loves to write poems. She gets lost in her thoughts. Loves pretty much anyone she meets. She has an open heart. In a nutshell, I think later on down the road she would make a great advisor to a Lord in the near future.
EJ: Does Lady Buella Percy have any admirers?
KK: She has many. There is someone special, not too sure that the Duke, her brother will approve, but we will find out soon enough.
EJ: When and where is the New Jersey Renaissance Faire?
KK: it is coming up real soon. It’s open May 31, June 1, June 7 & 8 10am-6pm at Liberty Lake in Columbus-Bordentown, NJ.
EJ: I saw that the New Jersey Renaissance Faire has started a Kickstarter. Can you tell us more about that?
KK. Yes, they are raising funds to move into their own office, which they currently share with Liberty Lake. They’re not stopping there as the faire is expanding and growing all the time. They are looking to have a building for training as well as housing, more stages, to hire more people as well as entertainers as well as more weekends for the Faire season. Please check out their Kickstarter for more information as well as great perks for donations. You can find more information on their main site at www.njrenfaire.com
