Tell us about your involvement in this year's Toscars?
I am very excited to be this years 'Miss Toscar'
|Tickets available here|
You starred in one of them last year, what was your experience like?
Filming the short over a weekend was fun & frantic, with so many enjoyable moments along the way. It did get a little technical at times but working with a great team who were skilled in all areas made the experience great. Oh yes, attending the 'Toscars' was a very fun evening!
Was there a particular reason you chose LA ?
I initially came to LA to study with a particular acting teacher. I read their book in England when I first started acting. After arriving in LA, I knew I was never going to leave.
What one thing do you miss from home?
My family and monster munch crisps
What do you find the biggest difference is living here versus the UK?
I find that the level of fitness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is far prominent here in LA compared to England.
Do you have a hidden gem in LA that you want to
share with us?
One of the first places I was introduced to when I first came to LA was the Chateau Marmont. Still to this day it holds it's charming appeal. I like spending time reading a book with a cup of coffee or sharing fun times with friends. This place is my gem.
What would you suggest to others
who are thinking about making the move here ?
Planning is key. I would suggest having a trip prior to making any commitments to get a feel of the place. I would also suggest learning about how credit works and its importance to how it effects everyday life from the renting of an apartment, the leasing of a car to even taking out a phone plan.
Lastly, how can we find you on the Internet ?
