Please tell our readers a little about yourself. How did you get into acting, and what drew you to your role in Chasing Ghosts?
I started liking acting when my school’s gifted program put on a play called Cindy Eller Plays Ball, a twist on Cinderella. I loved transforming into a completely different person. The thing that attracted me to the Kimberly role in Chasing Ghosts was her personality. It was so original, real, and she didn’t care what anyone else thought about her, she was purely herself, and that trait really drew me to that character.
Describe your role in Chasing Ghosts. What do you like most about the character? What do you like least?
Chasing Ghosts was one of the first characters that I really wanted to portray, and I think that is because I really identified with the character. What I liked most about that character is that she was so sincere and original, and just, so herself. I loved it.
What type of role do you enjoy playing the most and why?
The types of roles I enjoy playing are the funky, raw characters. I like getting down in the raw, gritty roles, where I really have to work and get down in dirt and really embody a character.
What advice do you have for other young actresses hoping to start a career in show business?
Be strong, do your best, and don’t be afraid of getting rejected. It’s a hard business and 99.9% of roles you don’t get, but do not let that stop you from doing your very best! Hollywood can be a tough place, a lot of people will try to psych you out, but remember you are the best you that you can be, and you have a beautiful personality that will shine through at an audition.
Can we expect to see you in any upcoming movies or TV shows? Where do you see yourself in five years?
I actually finished working on a project called The Duda Brothers, it’s going to be on Nickelodeon and I’m excited to see what comes of it!
