Q: What is the Assassin’s Apprentice about?
A: The Assassin’s Apprentice is about an assassin Pete, played by Robert Picardo who trains his apprentice Kaylee, played by Tarah Page. The film follows her training and ultimately one last test which she decides to do her own way.
Q: What role do you play?
A: I play Tiffany, a woman on a date with a mob boss who witnesses a surprising scene while at the bar with Pete and Kaylee. (I don’t want to give too much away!)
Q: What did you do to prepare for the role?
A: I watched Scarface and studied Michelle Pfeiffer’s performance. I also talked with the director and producers on what they expected from Tiffany’s character, then rehearsed with my scene partners.
Q: What is the biggest difference between you and the character of Tiffany?
A: Well, I am definitely not as forward. I am a very friendly person, but Tiffany is a man eater!
Q: What made you interested in acting?
A: I have always been intersted in acting, ever since I was young girl. I guess my affinity started when my parents would take me to the local theatre and I was amazed by the beauty and sadness storytelling could convey. I knew I wanted to be a story teller too.
Q: What is your strangest audition story?
A: I audition a lot for Latin American parts, which is great since I am mostly of Peruvian and Spanish decent, however I am not a native Spanish speaker, only conversational. I had to say a few lines in Spanish, which I did fine, but then was thrown a curve ball and had to talk in English with a Spanish accent, a la Sofia Vergara-let’s just say whatever what was coming out of my mouth sounded a mix between Italian and an accent you have never heard of. I was horriffied, as I’m sure the casting director was too. Let’s just say I didn’t book the job!
Q: What kind of day job or income source do you have and how does it affect your pursuit of acting?
A: I make most of my money from commercials and print modeling. I have wonderful agents and work pretty consistantly. Keep an eye out for me in Wells Fargo’s nationwide. Also, on the side I like to dog sit and dog walk my neighbor’s dogs. I am a huge animal lover. I also am developing an app, and freelance write. I try to stay on top of everything and I like to think of myself as a go getter, so whatever I set my sights to I commit myself 100%
Q: Have you ever had a disagreement with a director about how a role should be played? How did you deal with it?
A: No never. I value the director’s vision on every and all projects I have ever worked on. Even if I saw my character in another way, I always listen and take in whatever the director sees. Ultimately, I trust the director to guide the actors to their best performances
Q: What famous role could you have nailed and why?
A: I am currently watching Girlboss on Netflix, and I know I could have killed the main role of Sophia. I was living in San Francisco during the time NastyGal took off and was born and raised in the Bay Area. I love playing characters with quirky relatability and I definitely could have brought that. However, I love Britt Robertson’s take on the character and am a big fan of the show.
Q: What is the most realistic movie you have ever seen about Los Angeles?
A: I’m not sure about movie, but the episode of Sex in The City where the girls visit Los Angeles is pretty spot on! The healthy eating, meetings, premiere’s, and just overall LA vibe is pretty realistic; and hilarious.
