You started your career as a model and shifted to movies through time. How has your journey been so far?

It has been a very interesting journey. I won’t call it shifting. I’d say I expanded my creative horizons. I’ve studied acting and became a professional actress. It’s challenging and can be hard emotionally, but the opportunity to play different characters, portray contrasting life stories is so exciting. I still love and enjoy modeling. So why limit yourself, when you can do it all.

How was your experience as a model, and how would you compare it with being an actress?

Both are incredibly interesting and exciting. When I started modeling, there was a lot of pressure on the model’s size and parameters. It was very strict, one should’ve been very tall, very skinny, very young. When you are 14-15 years old and you are on your own in a foreign country, you have a lot of stress and pressure. Looking back and being an adult, I’m very grateful for the opportunity that the modeling world gave me. Traveling the world, meeting so many wonderful people, learning new cultures, creating your fashion style, etc.

I went to The Lee Strasberg Institute and theatre some years later after modeling. So, I knew that acting is a completely different skill. You can develop it if you have talent. But it involves a lot of inner work, memories, emotions, etc. Your look is not important, but the way you can portray a character so people believe you, it’s really powerful.

As a model, you must’ve been to various photoshoots. Do you have a favorite one among them?

Every shoot is unique. The shoot becomes a favorite for different reasons- amazing location, incredible clothing, flawless makeup hair, but the core is the team you are working with. You want to connect with people you work with: a photographer, a stylist, a makeup artist, a director, designer. Everyone should be motivated to create something special. Nice vibes, professionalism, fun, care – all of it is important. The shoot for FHM was amazing and fun! I’m grateful to work with such a cool team.  It was really hot outside, shooting on the rocks in Vasquez Rocks Park in northern LA county. But great teamwork and really good vibes plus everyone’s talent brought great results!

We caught that you have an active lifestyle. You are always doing something be it dancing, gymnastics, karate, or yoga. How much free time do you manage to get for yourself? What do you like doing in your free time?

I always find time for myself. That’s the key to inner peace and happiness. Then you can spread love, joy, and care, and make other people happy. Time management is important, planning schedule, being able to prioritize certain things, delegate when necessary, etc.

Plus, I love to multitask, listen to audiobooks while hiking, watching online classes in Nutrition Institute where I’m currently a student while working out with weights and stretching bands. Meditate, while practicing yoga. 

I also love spas, massages, shopping- which is most women’s favorite things to do, watching movies, walking with dogs on the beach, writing articles for my website, etc.

Would you like to tell us about your upcoming project with the film “Empire Queen”?

The Empire Queen is in post-production. Luckily the shoot was finished right before the quarantine. It’s a beautiful fantasy magic movie. I’m playing a mother “Terra Winter”, a kind witch, who helps people and saves lives. I love kind stories or stories with happy ends. 

What all big projects do you have marked on your calendar for the future?

Keeping it a secret for now. But have some upcoming projects. Stay tuned.
