Look Closer and you'll see something extraordinary, mystifying, something real and true. We have never been what we seemed.
Sometimes it can be a little tricky to explain the types of roles I play, and why I’m just as likely to play a leading lady as I am a villain or bombshell. At their core, most of the roles I play have a common theme of being incredibly resilient, many of them underestimated at the beginning of the story.
As a North Carolina native, I am undeniably attracted to southern stories and navigating the women that inhabit them. Being Southern is a part of my DNA and when I get to take on playing a southern woman it just comes natural.
And then we all have our inner bombshell or villain, don’t we? When I play these types of roles, they all seem to have something in common. They are a seismic force that propels the story forward. After all, every villain thinks they’re the hero of their own story.
The real magic is when these themes combine such as a resilient southern woman, like Lucille Frank, Calamity Jane or Nellie Forbush or an underestimated bombshell like Sally Bowles or Amneris.
So I guess that’s the best way to sum me up. I’m a resilient southern bombshell sometimes in equal parts, sometimes divided.
