RECENTLY : I’ve decided to get out of my comfort zone and go camping with Robinson. Aside from all the stress, constant vulnerability and rejection a life as an actress generate, I lost a dear friend and mentor in a terrible accident this past month. That caused me to wanna reset and re-evaluate my own choices and how I’ve been using my time lately. One of the things she’d always stress when we were together was the importance of seeing the good in things, even when things didn’t seem so good. She’d always tell me that with time, I’d become kinder to myself. But the biggest and most important lessons of them all wasn’t really anything she said. It was what she did, how she did it. Molly was one of the most generous women I’ve met in my entire life. She truly, genuinely cared.

For the last two months, I have been traveling around Brazil. Belo Horizonte, Ipatinga, Curitiba, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are the of places I visited within that time. It was long enough to rest some, work some, and live some.
There’s something about removing myself from my normal environment for a long period of time and I inevitably begin to re-evaluate things. I use this natural process to make necessary adjustments in both my work and personal life and it’s always worked out well for me.
Music has been part of my life ever since I can remember. It began with me begging my father to sing “A casa” by famous bossa nova composer Vinícius de Moraes over and over again. Those tunes would stick with me and trigger what later became a real appreciation for music. In this video I open up about the impact of music in my childhood, and how this passion evolved into a talent and my dreams.
When I first learned I’d get to be a zombie in Goodnight My Love my first reaction was: YES! Second reaction following immediately after, I rushed to the remote control to watch an episode oh Walking Dead and start making zombie noises. You know, to perfect my growling skills. I knew I’d have to rely on the makeup department for a lot of the characterization and they were nothing short of amazing. Catherine Woods is a hell of a makeup artist. Everything looked so real (and disgusting) I had a hard time looking directly in the mirror and at other zombies after the transformation.
Who would have thought I could go from bride to zombie in one day? Not long ago I didn’t even watch Walking Dead and soon after becoming addicted to the show I was cast in a zombie flick. So can you imagine my excitement in being part of this? I think you can give it a shot but no amount of guessing will describe my enthusiasm. “Goodnight My Love” was shot in two days. Flashbacks, dream sequences and zombie chases. Pretty cool, huh?
But underneath it all lays a story about human relationships. A homosexual couple lost everything they know in a zombie apocalypse. No matter the circumstances, “people need human contact” as once said Tennessee Williams through one of his characters dialogues and that’s what keep people fighting for survivalI’m extremely proud of this project for many many reasons, a few of them being my talented director and screenwriter Kellee Terrell (thank you so much for giving me the gift to play Aimee) Kristin Anderson for being such an amazing actor and challenging me to raise my bar, Elizabeth Brouillette and Conor O’Farrell for producing a kick ass short.
