What has been your favorite role?
My favourite role has probably been Zanya Kisaragi, a supporting lead on this card fight anime that I did back when I was 13. I had always wanted to voice act as a kid, growing up watching anime with older brothers who introduced me to stuff like Dragon Ball and Akira. This close relationship made the idea of being able to embody one of these animated performances a really big aspiration for me at one point and working with Bluewater Studios out of Calgary, Alberta was a really huge opportunity as I got to meet some of my childhood heroes in the studio and work really closely with them. My life became very surreal in that period of time if I can leave it at that.
What do you do when you are not performing?
I had a boring job pre-COVID and am still in the process of finding another boring job. Other than the daily 9-5; I have the plan to commit to studying next year and pursuing a degree in Anthropology, as well as in my free time writing music and poetry. I also like to cook and have been working on trying to make my own sourdough.
What Director would you like to work with?
I’ve been falling in love with Wes Anderson and his unique storytelling coupled with picturesque cinematography. If there’s a kind of role I’d like to fill it’d be anything out of that man’s folder.
What is your favorite movie and/or TV show?
Favourite is hard to say but a movie that doesn’t fail to sit pretty high up on the list for me is Lawrence of Arabia, and for TV it’s got to be the Office.
As a Performer, what is one thing you wish you would have known sooner?
None of what you’re doing matters unless you’ve spent the time with it. You can plan as much as you want but it’s the time spent on the ground working through your process that bears results and anything but that is just a wasted opportunity. It sounds obvious but unless you’re unsure about the project for career reasons or conflicts in your personal life, you have to treat it like it is the opportunity of a lifetime because you literally never know when it will be. I’ve nearly turned down.
