What has been your favorite role?
My favorite role was on Fargo, S5 where I played a folksy character that interacts with Juno Temple’s lead role. It was a fun scene to be in and a very positive experience.
What do you do when you are not performing?
I really enjoy working on film and television shows and find these experiences to be fascinating and invigorating so when I’m not performing as an actor, I try to stay involved in the industry. I endeavor to get work as a Stand In, Photo Double or Background actor and I do a lot of auditioning for roles. I enjoy taking acting classes and workshops.
What organization / activity are you involved with or passionate about that people would find interesting?
I think most film industry people might be surprised to learn that I’m a passionate artist and an avid golfer. In the winter months, I focus on painting with acrylics and mixed media in my art studio and then when spring hits, out come my golf clubs. I’m also very family orientated and spend lots of time with my husband, four grown kids, 3 grandchildren, and golden retriever.
What Director would you like to work with?
Thomas Bezucha is the director I would most like to work with as an actor. I’ve worked with him before on “Let Him Go” where I was Diane Lane’s SI and PD for the run of the show and Thomas was so enthusiastic, engaging, creative and very kind to everyone on set. I’d also be very interested in working with Alberta directors, several of whom I got to work with while taking the latest installment of the ACTRA Upstart program.
What is your favorite movie and/or TV show?
I love action/adventure movies like the Jumanji movies and the Indiana Jones series. I also really enjoy sci-fi movies such as Star Wars.
As a Performer, what is one thing you wish you would have known sooner?
To take acting classes early on, learn the Standard American dialect and learn how to do great self-tape auditions. These will improve your acting, the quality of your auditions and build up your self-confidence. I’d tell myself to be patient and continue to be dedicated because it really takes time to develop your skills and build relationships within the industry.
