I’ve always loved movies : growing up, my dad would organize movie nights a couple times a week and I’d always be enthralled by what I was watching on screen. I developed a passion for watching them. A few years later, I developed a passion for working on them : after being background for Descendants (2015), I officially decided and announced to my family that I was going to work in the film industry. I was completely fascinated by how the set worked, and knew right there and then that I needed more. Since then, I’ve worked as an actress in a variety of short and student films, won an award as Best Female Actress for my role in Reformat (2022), and just wrapped my first feature film : Mister Sandman(post-production). I’ve always loved acting, but recently I’ve taken an interest in the crew aspect of film — I took on my first crew role in the art department just this year for The Girl Inside The Polaroid (post-production), and I discovered that I love being behind the scenes just as much as I love being in the scenes — so here’s to more work on and off camera!
