What are the top 3 must haves in your closet?
My top must haves is 1. My black blazer from Zara (love this piece so much I got it shipped when leaving it in a hotel in LA) 2. Sexy black ankle boots (great when you need a lift for TV shoots) 3. Vintage accessories (they just make an outfit!)
What’s your go-to outfit?
My go-to outfit is usually skinny’s, a stand-out top, blazer, heels and a statement necklace.
AF – Was acting in the blood, were you the ‘dramatic’ one of your friends or did you come in to as you got older?
To be honest, I am a huge ham. I’m the first-born, I’m a Leo and I love entertaining more than anything in the world, so, yes it’s definitely in my blood. If I can grab your attention and make you laugh, I will try my hardest to do so – well, unless I’m grumpy and then I will sulk, pout and ignore you. I was quite involved in theatre when I was a kid so I always had an outlet for my dramatic outpourings and before I found the theatre audiences I forced my family to witness many of my performances. I feel especially sorry for my brother. He had to listen to 10 years of me practicing singing. Poor guy.
AF -How old were you when you did your first production? What was it?
I believe my first theatrical performance was playing Mary in my kindergarten Christmas Play. I accidentally dropped baby “Jesus” off of the stage onto his Cabbage Patch doll head. I was less concerned about Jesus than I was with finishing the correct choreography sans Baby. Rapping on the pilot of the L Word was my first ‘speaking’ role on a TV show – I think I was 21.
Confession: Okay, I admit it, I am a beauty product junkie! I love it all and have an innate obsession with lurking down the beauty isles at my favourite stores in search of the new “it” product(s). Yes, I love slathering on beautifully scented goop, whilst drowning myself in delectable fragrance and colouring myself in like a colouring book!. Perhaps a bit mindless, but nevertheless ever so enjoyable!
Over the years I have been privileged and fortunate to have worked with many great make-up artists who have given me all kinds of tips and tricks, and have through trial and error, tried zillions of beauty products and have come up with a few of my Cult favourites to share with you…that will not disappoint!
