unnamed“John Fallon’s “The Shelter” is remarkably ambitious. It’s a concise genre piece that doubles as a heavily metaphorical character sketch.”
– LA TIMES

How did you get into acting? Was it planned or by accident?

I did theatre in middle and high school, but I always considered myself a dancer, not an actress. I moved to LA when I was 20 and planned to continue dancing. I quickly found out that I hated the dance world, so I landed myself an internship at Interscope Records and planned to work in the music business. My mom told me she saw an ad for Central Casting and I should go sign up to do background work for extra money. I took her advice because I’m always down to try something new, and I ended up working for two weeks on a TBS TV show called “Glory Daze”.

It was a period piece, set in the 80s, based on a group of young college students. Everyday I was dressed in vintage clothes, got my hair crimped and teased, and got my makeup airbrushed on. It all felt like magic to me. The moment I stepped on set, I fell in love with the whole idea of making a film. I loved that we were making art that had potential to exist forever. From that moment on, I have been training, auditioning, and working as an actress.

What’s your ritual if any, that you do before shooting a scene?

I don’t really have a ritual, I just like to make sure I’ve done enough work on my character in the scene so I can feel confident enough in myself to let loose while shooting.

What can you tell us about your role of Josephine in The Shelter?

I felt like Josephine was a bright light in the midst of all the darkness of the story. She is genuine, one of those down to earth bartenders most people feel they can vent to and spill their heart to. To me, she represents a very last chance or last resort for Michael Pare’s character, by offering him help to secure him a safe place to spend the night.

How was it to act opposite an acting legend like Michael Pare?

Michael Pare was very professional, encouraging, and down to earth. He immediately made me feel very comfortable. We shot this almost two years ago I think, but I remember the advice he gave me. He told me that acting is supposed to be fun and not to let anyone take that out of it for me down the road. I still think about that today when I start to take situations too seriously!

Looking back what would be your favorite moment of the shoot?

My favorite moments are always when I’m shooting. It still feels like magic to me when I get the opportunity to act on film. I also had a great time bonding with everyone on set in between takes!

What’s next for you as an actress? Any other projects lined up?

I am playing the lead in a film called “Zippo Girl”, an adaption of the Hans Christian Anderson story “The Little Match Girl” with Director Drew Errington until November 2016. I’m also headed to Spain for two weeks for a little work and a little vacay, and can’t wait to see what inspiration comes from exploring the beautiful country.
