Fleur Zanna was born in London, England and relocated to Los Angeles after being accepted into a prestigious acting conservatory. She is a strong believer that life is too short not to give it your all and is extremely excited to see what new adventures her career will spark.
I am (use a max. of 3 words to describe yourself)… Passionate. Intense. Unconventional.
My last acting gig taught me… Never to let nerves ruin something you love. If you aren’t going to enjoy yourself then what’s the point?!
Proudest performance moment… Any moment I know I’ve given it 100%
Most embarrassing audition… A student film where the people running the show didn’t quite have their groove figured out and it was all just one hilariously awkward mess!
Most challenging part… I recently played a Mexican immigrant. It definitely involved a lot of research of the culture and history to make sure I made the character as real and full as possible. Then of course the Spanish language and Mexican Accent because I may not look it but I am super English.
The moment I knew I wanted to be an actor... Not too sure. It kind of snuck up on me!
If I weren't an actor, I'd be... Miserable. Acting is a part of who I am now.
Dying to work with... Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep, Saoirse Ronan, Idris Elba uuggh, I could rattle off so many people!
Was born to play... Definitely some sort of ninja superhero person. I just love strong female characters, anyone who wants to make a difference in the world.
Learn lines by... Writing them out by hand. Reading them whilst moving around so that they are in my mind and body.
Get into character by... Finding as much focus as possible. Releasing anything in your own life that might compromise the character’s story. Remembering that this person’s story is important and it is your job to share it with the world.
Acting is… Being. If you’re doing it right.
Special skill I wouldn't put on my resume… I can write backwards so the entire page is a mirror reflection of how it would usually be.
Movie I can’t stop talking about... LOGAN. Oh my goodness, I was a wreck. I’m not even sure what I expected but that was definitely above and beyond. A beautiful close to that character’s story.
Top three Netflix / Amazon shows in my queue… Reign, Medici: Masters of Florence, The Magicians.
Currently reading… A song of Ice and Fire: A Game of Thrones
Car karaoke tune... Mambo No. 5…It just never gets old.
Star Wars character that best represents me... It’s been a while since I’ve seen a Star Wars movie so I have a lot of catching up to do! But honestly, it would probably be Jar Jar Binks! I too am clumsy and well-meaning.
If they made a movie about my life, I’d be played by… Myself, I would hope. Who would do me better?!
Actor crush... Santiago Cabrera, all day, every day.
If I were a color, I'd be… How am I supposed to pick just one? I would be a rainbow ☺️
Fave travel destination… London because it's home. But there are so many places that I still want to see.
LA spot that inspires or relaxes me… Griffith Park.
The best advice I ever got… To be the best person that I can be, in absolutely every way possible.
