When did it all start?
I’ve wanted to be an actress since I was 4 years old, but my parents thought I was too young. That didn’t stop me because I kept asking every year and it wasn’t until they saw me in a school play that they realized I was serious about this craft.
If you were an advertisement, what would your slogan be?
There’s no holding me back
What does your career mean to you?
I love to be able to bring a character to life … develop the character’s back story and motivations and breathe life into everything about them.
What is your main motivation?
First and foremost, acting has given me confidence as a person and in all aspects of my life. It has taught me how to delve deep into my emotions and better face them and to emphasize more with people.
What is the part you enjoy the most? And the worst?
I am so passionate about this art form. It’s a tough business but when you can do what you love, all the rejection, blood, sweat and tears are so worth it.
Who are your idols?
I absolutely idolize Meryl Streep, Zendaya, Denzel Washington, Pedro Pascal, Florence Pugh, and Austin Butler.
In case you need a break in your career, what else would you like to do?
I love the industry and have a passion for being behind the camera as well, so I would say a director.
Do you consider that nowadays there are more or less opportunities for new artists? Why?
This is a tough business and especially if you are a new actor because the competition is insane but that doesn’t mean there are not opportunities. I think it depends on the person and their work ethic, drive and belief in themselves.
What would your idyllic life be like?
I would be a series regular on a popular drama show or someone who is continually offered lead roles in features filming across the globe.
What are your next projects?
I recently finished filming a thriller in Oklahoma called “Calculated Obsession” with an amazing director – Ryan J. Francis – and cast and am looking forward to the release of other movies including “Mama Bear,” “Roswell Delirium” with Anthony Michael Hall and “Curse of Vandor” with Dee Wallace. I begin filming a horror this spring as well and am very grateful for every opportunity and feel extremely blessed.
