When was that moment when you first realised your passion for acting?
I first realized my passion for acting when I was seven years old. I used to watch Western films with my grandmother, and I would tell her that I wanted to wear beautiful clothes and act in films like the actresses on screen. My grandmother encouraged me and told me that if I persisted, I would one day be acting in films. While growing up, I would also often act out and pretend to film scenes from my favorite movies with my sisters. I’ve always loved to act.
Best part about being in this industry?
The best part of this industry is that my work doesn’t feel like work. Booking jobs and working on set is always fun, and even though there can be hard work, it’s a labor of love. My passion always drives me forward to pursue challenging roles which has gifted me with a career that is non-linear and very exciting.
What is your workout routine like?
I aim to work out five times a week and usually early in the day. I find a combination of running for 20 minutes and light weight training for 45 minutes is the best workout for me. It’s toning, energizing, and helps me to avoid burn out because I can focus on different areas of my body during each work out.
A healthy breakfast for you includes? What do you like to have for dinner? And on weekends?
Healthy eating is a lifestyle for me. I usually eat every three hours or so and I include protein with every meal to keep my energy levels consistent. For breakfast, I often have an egg white omelette with lots of veggies – tomatoes, onions, and green bell peppers – and a cup of tea. I haven’t had coffee in over 14 years. For lunch, I love rice, grilled salmon or another protein, and more veggies. For dinner, I usually have grilled chicken and grilled veggies, and I always eat it before 6pm. I snack regularly throughout the day on high energy food like fruit or cheese. I eat much the same on weekends, but I love to add in Mexican food for some extra spice and variety.
Name your all-time favourite actress? What about them inspires you?
My all-time favorite actress is Meryl Streep. Her ability to transform so fluidly and naturally to an incredible range of characters inspires me. She’s one of my role models.
