I think of us as utility actors. We’re a team of actors who are capable of stepping in for any role. The challenges change from day to day; some days it’s having to learn dialogue with seconds notice. Other days it’s being away from home for 6+ months. My first job was as a stand-in, a common side job for little people actors. Before that I worked several years in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular with the Rockettes.
What's surprising about your job?
I’ve been a scratch actor for almost every human character in the movie but my work will likely never be seen. I’m happy to be a working actor and do not seek the “glory.”
Most exciting thing about working on the sequels?
Getting to work with so many incredible people, both behind the scenes and in front of the camera. Stephen Lang, Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet, lovely people to work with.
What's a fun fact about yourself?
I’m a cat lady, I love cats. I wear a cat shirt every Friday for Cat Shirt Friday. #catshirtfriday #itsathing. I wore a cat dress in one of my interviews because it was on a Friday.
