Kacey Rohl is an up and coming super star in the television and movie industry. AF invited Kacey to her first Fashion shoot (by Toranj Kayvon) and a little Q&A to finish it off.

AF – Was acting in the blood, were you the ‘dramatic’ one of your friends or did you come in to as you got older?

 

My mom and dad both used to be professional improvisers and are now a theatre director/ playwright and a director for film and TV respectively, so I##Q##d say acting is definitely in my blood.
I suppose I was the dramatic one of my friends, but not really in a typical drama queen sort of way. I was the one who would dance wildly in a restaurant or cry when I saw a cute baby. I was (I still am) rather odd.

 

AF -How old were you when you did your first production? What was it?

 

The first acting I did (outside of the one person plays I put on in my bedroom) was the musical called ##Q##Annie##Q##. I did it in second grade, so I would have been about seven years old. I played Annie. It was awesome.

AF – Were your parents on board from day 1 or were they hoping this was a ‘fad’ and you would study to become a Doctor or Lawyer?

 

I am very fortunate to have parents that support me fully and have since day one. They were very honest with me about the industry though, which I appreciated. They knew that it was what I wanted to do and they were willing to help me in any way that they could, sans coat tails.

 

AF- Have you come to the point now when you go to set you’ve stoped thinking “wow that’s a movie start” but “hey there’s my co-worker?” (follow up) Is their an Actor or Actress that no matter how famous you get you will always be in ‘awe’ of them?

 

I was very lucky to be able to visit my dad on set a lot while I was growing up, so I got over the star struck thing pretty quickly. Although, I did make a total ass of myself (several times) in front of Gary Oldman. Proud moments for sure. I think I##Q##d be pretty flabbergasted if I ever met Christopher Walken or Meryl Streep. Gods among men.

AF-What do you think when you hear people refer to you as “the next big thing” from Vancouver? (follow up) Have you run into other local talent that has “Hollywood” status who have given you good advice?

 

I feel very flattered when people say I##Q##m the next big thing. It kind of makes me giggle, I guess because maybe it makes me a little uncomfortable, but mostly because it makes me realize that my life is great and how thankful I am to able to do what I love. I had lunch with Corey Montieth and our manager once, and he didn##Q##t give me advice per say, but he was talking about charity and it reminded me that it is our duty as public figures to give back to the world community and help those who cannot help themselves.

AF-The pressure for young women in Hollywood seems to be a lot more then young men, have you ever felt that you needed to be different or that if you looked or acted a different way you may get more work?

 

I do think that the pressures on young women (women in general) in our business are dramatically different than the pressures on men, which sucks. And absolutely I have thought that if I lost a little weight, or had a different nose I would do more. But ya know what? It##Q##s not about that. It##Q##s part of the business, sure. But I knew that going in. And when it comes down to it, it##Q##s truly about the work. And if you are willing to work your ass off, you##Q##ll get the work.

 

I am certainly not the prettiest actress in Vancouver, but I am able to work fairly regularly. I truly believe that it is the best girl for the job, and if that means she##Q##s a blonde and not a brunette, then so be it. I##Q##m stoked for that girl.

 

You do have to develop a strange sort of acceptance around all of that stuff that is really unique to the entertainment industry. You can##Q##t let all the outside stuff distract you from the inside stuff. It messes with your work, and makes you a crappy actor. I do wish more types of women were seen in television and on film, though. In time, I hope. I have faith. We##Q##re starting to see some unique (and I think way more gorgeous than the typical Hollywood woman) pop up in major releases now, which makes me SO HAPPY!

 

 

AF-Are their any juicy scoops of upcoming movies you can let our readers in on?

 

An interesting fact about a film I did called ##Q##Sisters & Brothers##Q## (which also has Corey Montieth and Dustin Milligan in it, and was directed by Carl Bessai) was that it was all structured improv. We went in with an overall idea, and ideas for scenes, but all the dialogue was made up on the spot.

 

AF-Is there one of your peers that you would love to work with more so then anyone else in Hollywood?(follow up) If so what type of movie would it be?

 

Local peers? I would love to work with Richard Harmon again. We did ##Q##The Killing##Q## together and that kid is a powerhouse. We work in the same, whacky way, which is great. Plus, he##Q##s just a super nice dude. As for Hollywood peers- I would love to do an Almost Famous-esque movie with Anne Hathaway. I##Q##m Patrick Fugit. She##Q##s Kate Hudson.

 

 

AF-Anything your fans would be surprised to find out about you? (ie. you only wear velour, or eat chicken only on Thursdays)

 

My favorite snack, which is a family recipe that only my grandma and I eat, is a rice cracker with almond butter and pickles on top. So good! When I make it on set, people always ask me if I##Q##m preggers, which I find only mildly amusing.
