I am (use a max. of 3 words to describe yourself)…
My last acting gig taught me… Just be extremely confident in your choices. If your director(s) would like something different he/she will let you know. They want a great project as well.
Proudest performance moment… As Alice in Death By Design by Rob Urbinati. It took a lot of focus and dedication. Plus I got to fall a bit.
Most embarrassing audition… I went to an audition I knew I wasn’t the best for, because I needed audition practice. I was nervous and slated wrong…
Most challenging part… Cleopatra. I had to be so strong and vulnerable at the same time. Plus I had to slap around my messenger… I felt bad, even though it wasn’t real.
The moment I knew I wanted to be an actor... Not entirely sure, but I got to work on activating my career in 7th grade.
If I weren't an actor, I'd be... A cook or baker, probably.
Dying to work with... Yara Shahidi
Was born to play... Cleopatra, most likely. I got to grow a lot and learn about myself when I played her, previously.
Learn lines by... writing them out, repetition, and using audio recordings for dialog. Sometimes I use all three, sometimes one or two.
Get into character by... listening to music that my character would listen to or go through my characters day prior to the time of day my character appears, among many other improvised actions or mentalities.
Acting is… an opportunity to live a different or similar reality than my own. A gift.
Special skill I wouldn't put on my resume… If a book really captures my attention I can read a full-length novel in 2-5 days, while still having time to live…
Movie I can’t stop talking about... Moana. I love the music and the growth of Moana in the story.
Top three Netflix / Amazon shows in my queue…
The Bold Type
Riverdale, can’t wait for season 2
This is Us, also can’t wait for season 2
Currently reading… King’s Cage By Victoria Aveyard
Car karaoke tune... Kesha’s “Praying”
Star Wars character that best represents me... maybe Jar Jar Binks
If they made a movie about my life, I’d be played by… Myself, I’m building my credits. Or Amandla Stenberg
Actor crush... this changes frequently.
If I were a color, I'd be… Rosy pink.
Hotel alias… Quin D.
LA spot that inspires or relaxes me… Runyon Canyon. Once I get to the top, I feel like I can do anything!
The best advice I ever got… Do what you love and never let anyone tell you that you can’t.
