Your upcoming show Slate Me - in a few words, what is it about?


Kimi - Slate Me is going to be about the entertainment business. We will have lots of pointers and insight.


Samantha – Yeah, it’s an industry talk show that will bring a diverse audience to provide useful information to people up and coming and already established in the world of entertainment.


How did the show fall together in the first place, and how did you two get on board?


Samantha - I was discussing some issues with a friend of mine that owns Spayse Studios and I came up with the idea of an industry talk show since Kimi and I was already talking about coming up with something to do as a duo. Then he suggested that we do the show from his studio and Slate Me was born.


Kimi – That's right. Samantha's mother approached my mother about the show and asked if I wanted to co-host and of course I said YES!


You are both rather on the young side, if I may say so - so what do you think makes you the perfect hosts of a show about the entertainment industry?


Kimi - I've been on this journey since I was 6 years old and have been through a lot and wish I would have had someone to teach me what to and not to do in the beginning stages. I'm actually still learning things everyday.


Samantha - I think to be successful as a talk show host you must be entertaining and able to relate to your audience. Being my age I think we have more perspective for the young modern actor/actress.


How did the two of you first meet even?


Samantha - Funny story actually, we met on an audition of a movie called The Holly King. It was one of the first jobs I ever had and it was really nice meeting Kimi and seeing someone who is just as enthusiastic about acting as I am.


Kimi - We met at an audition. We've always had instant chemistry. We are very much alike. We love being on set together.


To what extent are you involved with the booking of your interviewees and musical guests, and what do you look for in possible candidates?


Kimi - I think everyone involved has chosen some special people to join Slate Me. All of the people chosen have been or are knowledgeable about the business.


Samantha - I like to be very involved in the booking of my guests because I want to make my show interesting. I give suggestions to our line producer, and he has been able to book some amazing people. If I don’t find the content interesting then I do not have as much connection to what I am doing.


How do you conduct your interviews, actually?


Samantha - Personal, honest, and professional. I have done several radio interviews and I have taken some ques from my past experience.


Some of the highlights to look out for in Slate Me's first season?


Samantha - We have a lot of creative content, live music from some of the best Texas musicians, and a ton of useful information for our audience. I don’t want to say much about it but the last show for the season will be one that cannot be missed. We can say it will be live streamed from London, but It will be a huge season finale.


Kimi - We will have some awesome industry guest, actors, casting directors, producers, writers, musicians. So excited to share what we've learned. And that last show, wow, it's gonna be amazing.


The $64-question of course, when and where will your show be seen?


Samantha - Our first show will be airing February 9th at 7 pm central time! It will be a live stream thru our YouTube channel Slate Me TV - so please tune in!


Any future projects besides more Slate Me you'd like to share?


Samantha - Well I myself am producing a series of PSA’s called Super Duper Siblings - - with a very close friend of mine John Charles Dickson! There will be a total of 6, you will be able to see them on amazon marketed as a children's series as well. The 10 minute short we did for it to see how well it would be received that we entered in a local fill festival can be seen at the above link.


Kimi - Samantha and I are actually going to be in a few projects together and I am currently working on my own sitcom pilot for us too!


So how did the two of you enter the entertainment industry even, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


Kimi - Yes, I have actually trained with 2 of the top coaches in Texas for 8+ years. I entered the business because I wanted to be inside my TV so my mom knew what I wanted to do. HA! All of her friends & family knew it too. They still laugh about some things I would do.


Samantha - I started this as something fun to do and I just fell in love with the art. I have formal training to an extent. I like to do my own studies on acting and I learn from several different coaches so I have a broad understanding of the art.


What can you tell us about your career prior to Slate Me?


Samantha - When I was younger I was signed with Page Parkes Management and only really did print and commercials. I got involved with competitive cheer and took a long break from the industry. So back in June of 2015 I decided I wanted to try to go into the film industry. I started submitting myself to films and started acting classes and fell in love. I went in July and signed with the Clutts Agency of Dallas. I attended several industry mixers and ended up with a group of local actors here in Dallas that was involved in local film festivals. I started getting involved in the short films and working in front and behind the scenes of making them. Working in front and behind the camera inspired me to try to make my own. I have started taking on screen fighting classes and working every angle to get to know this industry as well as possible.


Kimi - Currently I have an amazing agent in Dallas as well as one of the most prestigious agents & manager in Los Angeles.  I've done commercials, worked for Radio Disney for 2 years, short films, features, runway and print modeling.

Samantha - I want to say that we have worked extremely hard at making our guest line up as diverse as we possibly can and bring in a huge range of viewers. I really feel like we will be able to accomplish that and the show will be able to reach so many people. I would like to mention all those who have supported us so far I want them to know I am extremely humbled by the outpouring of support. It does take ton of people to get a show like this up and running and we have the best crew and I know without them I wouldn’t have a chance to make the show to its fullest potential. Also the sponsors that have stepped up to help us are incredible and I want to thank everyone involved with us right now. This show means a lot to me and I am truly blessed with all the supporters, sponsors and people involved in helping us make it happen.


Kimi - I really hope to inspire anyone, no matter what their age is, to just have patience. Patience is key. It can be a long hard journey but it can be very rewarding at times. Never give up if it's what you love. Have passion. Have faith. I pray a lot. That's important.


Thanks for the interview!
