FM Hello Abby. Thank you for sitting down with us today. Please tell us a bit about yourself. AW Hi. Youre welcome I am originally from Kentucky born in the small town of Morganfield and raised in Lexington. My roots are Kentucky West Virginia and Ohio. So basically I have heard every inbreed small town blonde joke there is I went to University of Kentucky for a year then dropped out and moved to New York City My parents will kill me that I admit that so easily I just knew that UK was not the right path and Lexington wasnt the right place for me. From a really young age I wanted to be in a big city. FM You moved out to Los Angeles to become an actress. What inspired you to chose acting as your career choice AW I actually moved to New York first it was closer to my family and I thought it would be the best place to land. I loved New York and was welcomed the universe really made me feel like I had made the right decision. My parents threw us into lots of different activities when my sister and I were young. I joined the Lexington Childrens Theater and the first time I was on stage I was hooked. I knew this is it. This is what I want to do. Always. I was 10. FM I understand that you have been nominated for a Best Actress award in one of your recent films Wedding Dress. That must be so exciting Can you tell us a bit about the movie and how you came to have a part in it AW Wedding Dress is about a woman in a very lonely marriage which I could totally relate too. I have been in that situation unfortunately and was really drawn to my character Rayanne. The director Haroula Rose is someone that I have known for a while and she actually presented me the script a couple of years ago but it wasnt until last summer that we shot. After she gave me the script I couldnt get it out of my head. I really really wanted to bring Rayanne to life.And because life mimics art so much and what I was going through in my personal life shooting this became a real healing process for me.And it is icing on the cake that my work in Wedding Dress has been honored by the Best Actress nomination and won awards in several film festivals. FM Is the award ceremony for your BestActress nomination coming up soon Is it something we can all watch AW The award ceremonies have already happened. I actually wasnt at the one where I won 7 WWW.FLIPMAGAZINE.NETJUNE2015
