Sadye Minden

Sadye Minden was born in Portland, Oregon. She knew she wanted to be an actor from a young age, and moved to LA to study acting and pursue her passion. She is currently a member of the 2016/2017 Company at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

I am (use a max. of 3 words to describe yourself)… witty, loyal, and a dreamer.

My last acting gig taught me… to give 100% even if you aren't totally passionate about the material.

Proudest performance moment… anytime I feel I've successfully told my character's story and given an honest performance.

Most embarrassing audition… I once auditioned for a commercial where I was dancing with a group of women who were all about 5 inches taller than me.

Movie I can’t stop talking about... Good Will Hunting. It may have come out almost 20 years ago, but it's my favorite and I never shut up about it.

Top three Netflix / Amazon shows in my queue… Sherlock, Peep Show, and Arrested Development.

Currently reading… High Fidelity. For the third time, but it's my favorite.

Car karaoke tune... Hamilton.

Would switch careers with… Kate Winslet. She's my favorite.

The moment I knew I wanted to be an actor... my first school play in the first grade.

If I weren't an actor, I'd be... Catwoman, definitely.

Dying to work with... Emma Thompson

Get mistaken for… I've never been mistaken for anyone, but I was once followed around by a tourist who kept insisting I was famous, though he didn't know from what.

Was born to play... I've never had one specific role I felt I was born to play, but whenever I find a character I identify with on a personal level, that's when I get the most excited.

Learn lines by... repeating them over and over while walking around.

Get into character by... listening to music or just sitting by myself for a while.

Acting is… telling a story.

Special skill I wouldn't put on my resume… I can get both legs behind my head.

Secret I want everyone to know… well, then it wouldn't be a secret, now would it?

Actor crush... Tom Hiddleston

Sign… Libra

If I were a color, I'd be… Blue, definitely.

Fave travel destination… Oceanside, Oregon. And London.

LA spot that inspires or relaxes me… Griffith Park.

The best advice I ever got… to live the life I want.
