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


Art of Obsession is a psychological thriller about a tortured artist that goes too far to respark his inspiration. I play the role of Patricia, a privileged woman, who is also looking to find her purpose in the world. She's a strong women, that has never really lived up to her potential. She quickly realizes that she is going to have to use her smarts and strength to survive.


What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of Winny Clarke can we actually find in Patricia? And how did you even prepare for a role like this?


There are definitely attributes that Patricia and Winny share. I trust people very easily. Patricia really didn't know much about Kennedy before rushing to him for help. She could've gone to family, or friends, but she chose him. I've put my trust in strangers many times. My outcomes have always been much more positive! Another similar trait would be tunnel vision. When I really set my mind on something, I won't stop until I've done it. I feel like Patricia has those qualities. 

To prepare, I had to watch quite a few junkie videos online. Patricia was being force-fed drugs. There had to be a balance between fighting to stay sober and loosing that battle. Patricia is also stronger than I am mentally. Anger does not come naturally to me. I had to absorb content that made me extremely uncomfortable to help pull that emotion out.


How did you get involved with the project in the first place? And to what extent could you identify with its psycho horror content?


I auditioned for it! I enjoyed the sides right away because you were able to tell that this character had two very different and dynamic personalities to her. Of course once I read the script, I understood that the muse was only Kennedys interpretation of Patricia. It was very cool to be able to play both. After playing this role, I have a much deeper understanding of horror genre. I look at it differently now, and am grateful for my new found appreciation of the content!


with director Ryan M. Andrews and co-star Brian McDonald

Do talk about your director Ryan M. Andrews [Ryan M. Andrews interview - click here], and what was your collaboration with him like?


Ryan is such a hands-on director. He was there for me every step of the way. He gave me so much of his time pre-production to communicate his idea of the character, but to also allow me to mould her into my own. He was sensitive to what I needed in the more vulnerable moments of the shoot. I was able to be bring my best version of Patricia to the table with his guidance.


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


We had a bunch of rock stars on our set. I'm sure you hear that a lot, but every single person brought their expertise to this picture, and it shows! We had a lot to get done in a limited amount of time, so as much fun as goofing around is on breaks, everyone was always on board to get back to the work. Even though there were more than a few hiccups during the shoot, the crew and cast was never frustrated or overwhelmed, and that made it feel like a breeze of a shoot.


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


I did my first school play at the age of 6. I always wanted to be an entertainer. I've always been obsessed with how film and television can make me feel a variety of emotions, sometimes within a half hour segment. I've always wanted to be a part of making other people feel, too.

I went to acting school at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Los Angeles.


What can you tell us about your acting work prior to Art of Obsession?


Art of Obsession was my 5th feature film and 1st lead role. I've done multiple guest spots on series for Discovery ID. You can catch me as a supporting character named Elliot in the feature film Almost Adults on Netflix.


Over the course of your career, you've been pretty much equally busy in movies and on TV - so how do movie and TV sets compare, and which do you prefer, actually?


What a great question. I am not sure if I can truly answer that because my experiences on TV sets have only ever been for one episode. I think being a recurring character would be a much different experience than a day player. That being said, I've had great experiences on both. Ask me again in five years!


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


I am a very emotional person, and am quite sensitive. Something as simple as the right song can put me in the emotional headspace to start a scene. From there, what transpires in the scene is completely improv. It could change from take to take, depending on how the character is reacting to the information she's receiving.
