Your new movie Maturing Youth - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?


Maturing Youth is about a man named, Roger, who has a sort of Peter-Pan-syndrome, who just doesn’t want to grow up and face reality. He has a little too much fun out one night and unbeknownst to him gets a woman pregnant. A few years later she comes back into his life wanting him to help her raise their son.


My character Mae is a silly, fun-loving college girl looking to use Roger for marijuana and alcohol and is one of the signs early on in the movie that highlights just what a loser he’s really being.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life? And how much Darleen Rae Fontaine can we find in Mae?


Chase Michael Pallante [Chase Michael Pallante interview - click here], our producer for the film, really encouraged us to dig deep and build a background story on our character. Personally I am very much a silly, fun-loving woman myself so Mae and I have that in common. Although I was never one of those use-and-abuse type of girls, I did have a best friend growing up that sure did enjoy getting what she could out of men who we both knew she wasn’t interested in. I looked to sort of emulate that sort of behavior.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place?


I had just finished off a great year for myself starring in my television debut of Investigation Discovery's Grave Secrets' The Last Calls She Made episode, and I was hungry for more! After the holiday I was fast at work auditioning for a number of projects and saw the casting for Maturing Youth. Once I read the sides I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of and I went for it.


What can you tell us about your director Divoni Simon [Divoni Simon interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?


Divoni Simon was such a pleasure to work with, he knows exactly what he wants to see and was great about keeping everyone on the same page.


What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


The cast grew close quick! By the end of the shoot Rae’l Ba [Rael Ba interview - click here], who played Maggie, and I were really thick as thieves and gabbing away like Maggie and Mae. We had a great time.


Any future projects you'd like to share?


My voice-over acting career has taken off a bit, I’ve worked with Facebook and UnderArmour most recently and I just wrapped a commercial and print shoot for Third Love, an undergarment company based out of California, so keep an eye and ear out for me!


What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


I started acting in middle school playing Rusty, made famous by Sarah Jessica Parker, in the musical Footloose, I was in love ever since. Apart from taking a few classes in college, I’ve trained at the Acting Studio: New York and with Rebel Theater Company ensemble group.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Maturing Youth?

Before Maturing Youth, I had a bit more theater training and independent projects under my belt, apart from the Investigation Discovery channel's Grave Secrects I hadn’t been part of any major projects.


How would you describe yourself as an actor, and some of the techniques you use to bring your characters to life?


I just try to be as truthful and in the moment as I can possibly be.


Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?


Just to name a few Viola Davis, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Issac, Ewan McGregor, the list goes on and on.


Your favourite movies?


Moulin Rouge, the Harry Potter films, the Lord of the Rings films, Pride and Prejudice.


... and of course, films you really deplore?


I can appreciate at least something in every movie.
