It is clear you were born to be in front of the camera. Was this always your dream job?
Well, I grew up going to dance, ac ting and even singing classes. I always knew that I wanted to be a performer or an artist of some kind. As well as that, I have always loved film and I’ve always dreamed of being in front of the camera in movies.
Is there a specific genre of movie you like to work in?
I would absolutely love to work in an action movie, or something super theatrical like Tim Burton’s movies where everything is over the top.
Tell us about the movie Flesh Fresh – sounds gory!
It was! It is this satire short film that is supposed to make fun of over-the-top commercials but with a very twisted end. We had an amazing special effects make-up artist who was doing all the protests and they looked super real and scary. It was definitely a very fun shoot, and we all had so much fun. The script was also very funny, and we couldn’t stop laughing in between takes.
What character do you play?
I played the main girl, Jessica, who falls in love with a guy in the party where the short is set.
Which actors / directors would you like to collaborate with in future?
I would absolutely love to work with Tim Burton. I think his vision is absolutely unique and so different. I grew up watching his movies and being part of one of his projects would be a dream.
If you could play a role in a re-make, who would it be and why?
I would love to play Regina George in a remake of Mean Girls. But I think Rachel McAdams is the perfect Regina George!
Tell us something nobody knows about you? We promise to keep it a secret!
I am actually more introverted than people would think. Even though, I present myself like a very outgoing and social person, I always keep a lot of details about myself in private.
What’s up next for you?
As of now I am writing a web series that I would love to co-direct and act in. So, that is the main thing I’ve been working on.
Finally, how can people find and follow your journey?
I keep up to date with my latest projects on IMDb, Instagram, and Facebook
