Your TV-series Wisp - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your two characters in it?


Wisp is the story of a serial killer who has stopped killing and after some years, his modus operandi is repeated, and the local police fear he is back. To try and solve the murders, they call Lincoln Frost, a detective who has investigated the original cases. My characters are twin sisters: One of them, Linda, is murdered, and Lana is a reporter who has written about the murders before and will not stop until she finds out who killed her sister.


What did you draw upon to bring your characters to life, especially considering one of them has to go through some quite traumatic experiences?


My own traumatic experiences. There is no point in trying to understand a certain scenario from an emotional point of view unless you've been there. But, we all have had our OWN traumatic experiences and life experiences in general we are emotionally attached to...those moments are what I use to create a character, trying to make their emotions relatable to my own.


How did you get hooked up with the project in the first place?


I contacted Paul [Paul Gorman interview - click here] telling him that I read about the project and I was interested in being considered for a role when the project was originally a movie. I had a smaller role but then Paul offered me to play Lana, and I was thrilled. When it was decided that Wisp was going to be a TV series, he also offered me the possibility to play twin sisters - Lana and Linda. I couldn't pass such an opportunity!


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


with John Baran in Wisp

Paul is very relaxed and open to any suggestions we may have to develop the characters and the storyline. I know that I can freely run any idea by him and he will consider it, no matter how crazy it is.


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


Again, very relaxed. Paul knew what he wanted and if you delivered, that's a take. Everyone on set was great and had an amazing sense of humor. I wasn't sure what to expect as I didn't know anyone in the cast or crew before arriving there. The cast was all "shipped" from different cities. That is a hit or miss. Fortunately we all got along very well from day 1.


As far as I know, only act 1 of Wisp has been filmed so far - so anything you can tell us about your involvement in act 2 and the development of your character yet?


Blood Sombrero

I am looking forward to Act 2 of Wisp as my character grows a lot in the following episodes. The first Act was nothing but an introduction of Lana, but there are plenty of action-packed scenes for me in the future.


Any future projects beyond Wisp?


Yes! One of the first projects I will start shooting early 2014 is called Blood Sombrero, a grindhouse style movie in which I play a katana expert. Till Death is a feature currently in production so I will be shooting any day. The Deadliest Gun, if I am not mistaken, will start production around April and later in 2014 The Prodigal.


What got you into acting in the first place, and what can you tell us about your training as an actress?


I joined drama at school at the age of six, and pretty much fell in love with acting right there. When I was about 9 the school owner contacted my mom and suggested she considered taking me to acting classes outside of school. And I did. I took all sort of acting workshops and tried to read as much as possible to try and find my own "method". Something that worked for ME. And I was fortunate to have been able to train with INCREDIBLE directors and coaches. I believe that no matter how naturally talented you are, training will give you the tools to channel that talent in the right way and make you exponentially better.


Can you still remember your first time in front of a camera, and what was that experience like?


Velvet Vengeance

Yes... it was... well, strange. I worked on stage for about 10 years before I finally decided to try acting in front of a camera, and I never thought at the time they were such different animals!!! I remember my coach repeating me that "you don't need to talk so loud." Of course, I was used to acting for the last row, so it took me a while to realize the slightest eye movement would be captured now. But I love both.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Wisp?


I started doing a lot of shorts to gain experience in front of the camera, but I never really considered film work mainly because the film market in Argentina is way smaller, as opposed to theatre. Until this one time in 2006/7 I read about an open audition for a horror film and I auditioned. I got the lead female and I enjoyed the shoot a lot so I thought about (pun intended) giving it a shot.


Blood Reunion

You have also done quite a bit of theatre-acting, right? So how does performing on stage compare to acting in front of a camera?


Yes that's how it all started. I love the stage, that immediate feedback from the public is incredible. And there's no "sorry, let's try again" or "sorry, I forgot my lines". You better remember and if you forget, you better improvise! And there's of course, like I said before, a lot of work with projecting your voice. You have to learn to whisper without whispering, and tricks like that. But at the same time the flowing of the scene on stage, without interruptions, makes you really "get into" the character. That's, to me, the tough part of doing film work.


How would you describe yourself as an actress?


I don't know how to describe myself, but I'd tell how I'd like to be described as an actress: as an actress who takes chances and welcomes challenge, as someone who is not scared of giving 100% for a role even if that means not looking "pretty", and as someone who is not scared of bold, obscure, or different roles.


Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?


The Allegiance of Powers

Meryl Streep can do no wrong in my eyes. There should be like a Meryl Streep Oscar every year, just because she exists!

But besides her, Jessica Lange, Helen Mirren, Kathy Bates, Sally Field, Jodie Foster, Glenn Close... Daniel Day Lewis, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp... and so many more!


Your favourite movies?


Clockwork Orange, Silence of the Lambs, The Godfather, Pulp Fiction, Trainspotting, Natural Born Killers, American Psycho, Rain Man, Forrest Gump, and many more!


... and films you really deplore?


I will refrain from answering this question and I will tell you why: behind every movie that "sucks", every record that is "lame", every book that "stinks" and every work of art that is "crap", there is a person that poured their heart into it. There is a group of people that tried and DID something. And I respect that.
