Emerging as one of the culture’s most undeniable voices, gold-selling Detroit rapper, entrepreneur, and actress Kash Doll unleashes her new track “Thumbin” today via Republic Records.

Listen to “Thumbin:” HERE

On this bag-chasing anthem, Kash Doll rips through bars as fast as she counts cash over simmering trap hi-hats and a sample of crisp dollar bills flapping. Flexing without apology, she flosses on the immediately irresistible hook.

It arrives on the heels of her knockout collaboration with DJ Famous “Bad Azz” feat. Mulatto & Benny The Butcher, which has amassed 9 million streams and counting. Beyond features from REVOLTPitchforkBrooklyn Vegan and more, UPROXX claimed, Kash DollDJ InfamousMulatto, and Benny The Butcher show why the competition is mad with ‘Bad Azz’.

She also asserts herself as a 360-degree entertainer in 2021 by joining the cast of 50 Cent’s new series ‘Black Mafia Family’ on Starz later this year.

Kash Doll continues to make waves. Receiving critical acclaim from Vultureand Marie ClaireEssence praised, “If there’s one rapper who can teach us a thing or two about remaining confident, it’s Kash Doll. Meanwhile, she guested on “Friday Night Cypher” from Big Sean’s chart-dominating Detroit 2 and joined forces with HoodCelebrityy for “So Pretty.

Detroit native Kash Doll has impacted the music industry with a commanding force, dropping street-earned truths with her throwback wordplay and powerful bars. The one-two combination of spirit and sass announced her as fiery female force in 2019 after quietly amassing 30 million-plus on-demand streams, garnering the BMI Social Star Award and “Issa Wave Award” at the BET Social Awards, securing a new management deal with Title 9 Productions and inking a recording contract with Republic Records. An unbelievable story brought her to this point. Losing her dad on just her first birthday, she always held down multiple jobs to support her mom and siblings. And at 18, she started investing in herself eventually opening two beauty bars and funding her own music career. She made waves on the 2014 independent debut mixtape, Keisha Vs. Kash Doll. Following 2016’s Trapped In The Dollhouse, she developed a presence as a touring force and earned coveted co-signs from Drake, Big Sean, Rick Ross, Remy Ma, and many more. The 2018 The Vault mixtape captured #1 on multiple mixtape sites as her debut single for Republic Records “Ice Me Out” and its 2 Chainz-assisted official remix clocked 85 million-plus total streams. Last year, Kash Doll also released a project solely for her fans titled Brat Mail to thank them for all their continued support. The project garnered over 30 million global streams and features the breakout single “Check.” Shortly before Brat Mail, Kash released one of her biggest singles to date, “For Everybody,” which racked up over 101 million YouTube/VEVO views independently. Outside of music, this boss runs Kash Doll Enterprises and does charity work around her hometown. Her city bestowed the “Spirit of Detroit” Award upon her. Additionally, in 2019, Kash Doll released her debut album Stacked, received a 2019 BET Award nomination for “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist,” garnered critical acclaim for her album from BillboardMTV, UPROXX, BETForbes, Nylon and more and toured with Meek Mill. This year will be full of brand-new music, acting and more from the Detroit star.

Jenna Elfman QxA

Jenna Elfman Talks Marriage, Nuclear Disarmament & Fear the Walking Dead

By Allison Kugel

AMC’s hit series, Fear the Walking Dead, the post-apocalyptic spin-off series of The Walking Dead– is now in the second half of its sixth season. Actress Jenna Elfman brings a tour de force performance as former ICU nurse and apocalypse survivor, June Dorie. Her character carries significant trauma, and Elfman plays each note to perfection amid a flawless ensemble cast.

What makes Jenna Elfman so interesting to watch on screen are her exotic blue eyes that dance wildly during her comedic roles, and simmer with intent during heavier, more dramatic onscreen moments.

Having come into our homes in the late 90s and early 2000s as spirited Dharma Finkelstein on the Chuck Lorre created sitcom, Dharma & Greg, and later in romantic comedy films like Keeping the Faith and EDtv, audiences got to know the funny, platinum blonde livewire that embodied younger Jenna Elfman. As Jenna puts it during our conversation, “young ingénue” roles were her specialty for many years. Whether playing opposite Matthew McConaughey or Ben Stiller, her characters were somebody’s wife or somebody’s girlfriend.

Jenna Elfman had yearned to tackle the kind of self-contained, multi-dimensional character work she now enjoys with her role in Fear the Walking Dead.

Allison Kugel: What parallels do you draw between 2020 and your apocalyptic show, Fear the Walking Dead?

Jenna Elfman: Good question. We really got to see what people do when their survival is threatened (laugh). You see the ones that tend to help, and you see the ones that tend to hoard, and everything in between. I think with the extreme example of what we do on Fear, which portrays a true apocalypse setting, it is an extreme version of the homeopathic dose we saw manifest amongst ourselves last year.

Allison Kugel: And your take on our current society and culture?

Jenna Elfman: Changing, and hopefully evolving…

Allison Kugel: What do you think the upside would be if we needed to rebuild our society from the ground up, like in Fear

Jenna Elfman: There is always a greater opportunity for harmony and tolerance, and a broader and enlightened sense of each other, and respect. I would always hope that as a culture changes, it would improve in those ways so that we could [collectively] expand our culture in a way that is safer and more fun to live within.

Allison Kugel: I first became aware of you years ago from your sitcom, Dharma and Greg. I remember seeing you in different settings, on red carpets, and thinking, “What’s the deal with this woman?  Why is she so happy?” I don’t know if that is your 24/7 being, or if that is what you portrayed publicly. But there is a lightness to you. Where does that come from?

Jenna Elfman: I love living life. I think life is fun and people are interesting, I have always been that way. I don’t know if it is my 24/7. I certainly move through all the human emotions like a normal person, but I do, as a general living condition, enjoy living life. Even the problems I tend to enjoy, because I like to try to solve them. You feel so kickass when you solve problems, and that’s part of the adventure and I enjoy that. I also genuinely enjoy and love people.

Allison Kugel: Did you want to take the role of June in Fear the Walking Dead to explore a darker, grittier side of yourself?  Is that what attracted you to this show?

Jenna Elfman: As an artist, I was craving a new opportunity to express myself in a different way. I love comedy! Comedy always comes from, to me, a sense of the tragic and the absurd. That comedy is a result of tragedy and exposing the humor of it. There is a certain kinetic rhythm to comedy which I love, but I was craving a change and I was craving a way to express myself as an artist, in a different way, and looking for that opportunity. Then Fear came along and offered me this great role, and it was exactly what I was craving. I also wanted to express myself in a more mature way than how I had been seen, previously. I felt the bulk of my career had been expressing myself kind of through a young ingenue’s viewpoint. Having aged a bit and lived life, and had so many experiences, I now wanted to express myself, artistically, through the viewpoint of a woman and bring that to my work.

Allison Kugel: I get that. This show is heavy and intense at times. Do you bring parts of it home with you?  

Jenna Elfman: I do not bring parts of it home. It is not a very mushy, psychological situation for me. When the cameras are rolling, I am June. All my preparation at home, spending hours working on the script, researching it, and working through the scenes prepares me for when the cameras are rolling so I can wholly and fully be that character. When they say cut, I’m back to Jenna. For me, the story lives in me as just that, a story. I am always contemplating the story and how I want to play tomorrow’s scenes as far as understanding my character more deeply. But I don’t bring the character home. I have too many hats to wear at home as it is, and that would make things way too difficult (laughs). You and I are both boy moms… and your son is very handsome by the way.

Allison Kugel: Aww, well, thank you. And your boys are so cute!

Jenna Elfman: And you know they want their mama’s attention, so when I’m home I kind of have to take off one hat and do that.

Allison Kugel: Is there a fellow actor who has given you great advice?

Jenna Elfman: Garret Dillahunt and Lennie James (Jenna’s castmates). When I first came on the show and I was in Lennie’s trailer, we were talking about this job on Fear and about the mythology of the storyline. He said, “What I’ve learned is, you can’t play the whole thing all at once. You cannot play the whole of the apocalypse, the whole of the mythology. It’s always there, but you can’t play all of that at once.” As an actor, getting to know this mythology and this universe I was in, that advice was very helpful to me. When we were working on episode five of season four, called “Laura,” where our characters meet and we were doing a scene on the back porch and he’s trying to get me to change my shoes and wear a more practical boot, my character is in a very self-protective zone and I said to him, “No, I’m fine.” Garret Dillahunt said, “Why don’t you just take your foot and slide that pair of shoes over and away from you?”  I was like, “Oh my God, that is brilliant!”  And so, I did that in the scene, and they left it in. I kind of just slide it away like, “No, thank you.”  I am learning from watching both of them, and I admire them a lot as actors.

Allison Kugel: What has been your greatest triumph, to date?  

Jenna Elfman: Bringing children into this world. I think that is a huge triumph, and the most rewarding endeavor I have ever tackled.

Allison Kugel: And what has been your greatest lesson, and how have you used that lesson in your life?

Jenna Elfman: The greatest lesson that I have ultimately taken along my journey is that I do not, as a policy, make assumptions about people at all anymore. Until I have had ample time with them, and I have shared experiences with them where they define who they are to me. I do not make decisions based off rumor, hearsay, or things I’ve read. I refuse to, because it is almost always wrong, and you are shortchanging somebody. Also, people change and grow and learn. If I make a snap assumption and a decision about someone, that is prejudice. I am pre-judging somebody before I’ve ever met them and before they have had the opportunity to show me who they are.   So, I don’t do that at all anymore and I know that I have changed and grown, and I would certainly like others to give me the opportunity to show and be who I am through my current actions and behaviors. It is much more exciting to allow someone to show you who they are in the present moment, and then make decisions based off that.

Allison Kugel: Do you pray? And if so, who or what do you pray to? 

Jenna Elfman: I don’t pray per the literal definition, but I do like to observe life, dream, daydream about goals for myself and for the world, and then intend them. I like to grow myself mentally and spiritually as needed to help accomplish those dreams and make them come true for myself, for my family, and for others. I guess that is a form of praying, but it is not the commonly defined form of praying. I do like to dream and intend good things, and I am always intending good things for others. It makes me feel good to look at someone and hope and intend the best version of themselves into them. I find that to be a very therapeutic endeavor.

Allison Kugel: When you intend good things for others you tend to receive a lot more from the universe, which is something I have learned over time. When somebody has something that you may want for yourself and don’t yet have and you indulge in that “Ugh” feeling of negativity and lack, you are negating yourself and taking energy away from yourself.  

Jenna Elfman: You’re invalidating yourself.

Allison Kugel: Yes, one hundred percent. If you could travel back in time and alter one historical event, where would you go and what would you attempt to change? 

Jenna Elfman: I would have prevented the ability to make nuclear bombs. I would have tried to subvert that and used the atomic and nuclear knowledge and ability for other things, not for the destruction of mankind. So, if I could go back in time, I would have drawn a hard line in the sand on what they are allowed to do with that technology, and I would eradicate all nuclear arms from the face of the earth, as opposed to their ability to eradicate mankind from the face of the earth.

Allison Kugel: Damn, that’s a good one Jenna! I would have just said something like, “I’d try to prevent Tupac from getting shot (laugh)

Jenna Elfman: (Laugh) Well, that’s also true.

Allison Kugel: You and your husband just celebrated your 26th wedding anniversary. How do you get to twenty-six years?  What do you attribute it to?  

Jenna Elfman: I think there are three things. One, we started off as best friends and we are still best friends. That means we don’t keep secrets. We’re friends and we support each other. We don’t compete against each other, except for who’s more tired (laughs). That’s always a fun game.

Allison Kugel: (Laugh) Yup!

Jenna Elfman: That is really the only area of competition. It’s about friendship and humor. Humor has always been a big part of our relationship. We love to laugh and be silly, and we love to make each other laugh.

Allison Kugel: Were you platonic friends for a long time before you became a couple?

Jenna Elfman: I was 19 and he was 21, so the platonic-ness lasted maybe a month (laugh). Then we were boyfriend and girlfriend. The third thing, I would say, is communication. We talk everything through. Even if we are having a fight and feeling like, “I don’t want to talk to you.”   We’ll take a break to collective ourselves, but we always come back and talk it out. It’s not like we haven’t gone through trials and tribulations, it’s that we always communicate our way through it.  That is the only way you come to a solution or greater understanding with anything. No problem solves itself.  Communication is kind of the lube for problem solving, so you have to be able to communicate. The fact that we are friends and have that foundation and we are faithful to each other. We don’t betray each other. We don’t cheat on each other, we don’t fuck around, we really have kept that tight and clean and respectful.

Allison Kugel: You recently moved from California to Texas, where Fear the Walking Dead shoots? Do you miss L.A.?

Jenna Elfman: Yes, I used to commute to Austin every week or every two weeks where we film the show, and with Covid happening, that commuting was not going to be a reality anymore, and now that I’m homeschooling my kids, it was like, “Okay, why not?” Austin is a great city, the people are super friendly, and the food is outstanding. We found a great neighborhood in a cul-de-sac and everybody is so nice. I don’t miss L.A. right now because it had gotten pretty dark there. It feels kind of apocalyptic in L.A. right now. I grew up in L.A., I was born and raised there and it’s not the city I grew up in right now, but it will revive itself.

Allison Kugel: What do you think you came into this life to learn, and what do you think you came here to teach? 

Jenna Elfman: I think there are so many facets to life. I feel like I am always learning and you kind of don’t know what you don’t know until you start to learn about it. Then you realize how much you don’t know. I think the benefit of our information age is how much you can learn, and how quickly you can learn it and increase your rate of knowledge. We can now access history and stories of mankind so easily. That has been one of the cool things about homeschooling my kids, is curating the stuff they are learning.

Allison Kugel: What do you think you are here to teach?

Jenna Elfman: I would hope to impact people by inspiring them to have a healthy curiosity about the world. I think to be curious about the world and life, and about other people. I hope I would inspire others to be curious and interested in life, and always [be] reaching into life and not backing away from it. Be brave, be interested, and don’t be scared to communicate.

Allison Kugel: I like that. What item still remains on your bucket list? 

Jenna Elfman: I really want to go to Greece. There was five years of my early education where I went to a Greek Orthodox school in our neighborhood, and we got to learn about Greek culture and religion. We learned the Greek language and I love Greek people so much. There is just something incredibly special to me about Greece, and I’ve always wanted to go to there to experience and fully immerse myself in that beautiful culture.

Allison Kugel: What would you still like to attempt in your career?

Jenna Elfman: I would like to continue the opportunity of character work.  That is what I love about acting so much, is the ability to live many lives in one lifetime through these characters. I am really kind of obsessed with the journey of acting and growing as an actor. That is really my jam right now. I love and will always do comedy, but I accomplished a lot in comedy. I’m on this new journey of becoming a dramatic actress and expanding my abilities in that way. I’m craving the opportunity to play more characters and to work with great artists to grow and learn from working with them.

Allison Kugel: Lastly, what is in store for your character June as this new season progresses.

Jenna Elfman: There are some big June stories coming. We are going to see this new strong but challenged side to her and she has more story to go through. I think viewers are really going to enjoy it.

Season 6B of Fear the Walking Dead is out now on AMC Network. Catch up on seasons 1 through 5 on Hulu. Follow Jenna Elfman on her website, Instagram and Twitter.

Thandiwe (Thandie) Newton is Reclaiming Her Name

After being miscredited as “Thandie” in her first project—a mistake that has continued for the rest of her career—actress Thandiwe Newton is insisting people use her whole name. All of her future films will be credited with her full name, Thandiwe, which means beloved in Shona.

“That’s my name. It’s always been my name. I’m taking back what’s mine,” Newton said in her May cover story for British Vogue.

Newton also spoke about her experiences with abuse in the film industry, which started when she was sexually abused by director John Duigan at the age of 16 while shooting her very first film, Flirting.

“There’s a moment where the ghost of me changed, you know, and it was then, it was 16. He derailed me from myself utterly. I was traumatized. It was a kind of PTSD for sure. I was so distraught and appalled that a director had abused a young actress, and that it was happening elsewhere, minors getting abused and how fucked up it was. I was basically waiting for someone to come along and say, ‘Well, what shall we do about this?’’’

Although Newton faced a great deal of backlash when she first came forward with her story of abuse, soon the #MeToo movement led to countless more women within Hollywood sharing their own stories of abuse and assault.

At age 27, she has delivered five platinum-selling albums and surpassed 35 billion streams – she’s Spotify’s most-streamed female artist of the past decade – while rapidly becoming one of the biggest pop stars of our generation with her powerhouse vocals and unmatched presence both on stage and with her fans.

Main actors Yung Phil (Turf Feinz), Dopey Fresh, Intricate, and No Name – who play themselves – are local turfers from Oakland, San Francisco, and surrounding areas.

“Getting an Avant premiere with mowna feels like one of those really lucky, synergistic moments that we’ve had throughout the making of this film. For one, I love that we’re on the same page about being ambitious and daring in our experimentation while sticking closely to authenticity. mowna and MUD WATER are of the same kind: we don’t care about high horses or usual ways of doing things, we’re just here to make the time of our lives, blowing past expectations,” said director, My-Linh Le.

About the 2021 mowna Online Biennial 

The deadline for submissions for the 2021 mowna Online Biennial has been extended through March 16, 2021.  For submission guidelines, please click here. 

As large institutions cancel shows, the art that is being made currently will not be seen, might be lost, or perhaps considered irrelevant by a show that is scheduled as far off as 2022. The pandemic has forced art institutions to reassess their business models and ethics and address the inequality that exists within the art world. Some venues have shut down permanently, others struggle to stay afloat. With all of this going on we are currently witnessing a two-year gap in the art world’s exhibition schedule. The Museum of Wild and Newfangled Art addresses this crisis through hosting the 2021 mowna Online Biennial through their humane platform facilitated by a sustainable business model that exhibits and supports a diverse range of art and artists right now. The 2021 mowna Online Biennial opens April 30th, 2021, exhibiting an international pool of 100 artists. This is mowna‘s largest show of the year showcasing international art made in 2019 – 2021. The Biennial includes all forms of art, inviting artists to consider new ways to exhibit their work online and to consider how artwork translates through mowna’s digital platform.

mowna is currently receiving a constant stream of submissions for the Biennial, with 42 countries represented so far. Because of the traction, the call for submissions for the 2021 mowna Biennial is extended through March 16 and may include interactive experiences, movement, abstract, play, sound, street, fashion, animations, live performance, photography, illusions, nature, software, video art, memes, writing, bots, gifs, vr, ar, xr, painting, sculpture, sketches, theater, poetry, opera, cinema, and other creative things only you can dream up.

Official artist selections for the 2021 mowna Online Biennial will be announced on April 9, 2021, and the opening party will take place on April 30, 2021.

1950 Cadillac Fleetwood from “The Godfather” Commences a Large Collection of Iconic Cars from Film and Television

Dressed in black leather with his guitar strapped across his chest, Elvis Presley strolled on stage in 1968 to perform in what would become his legendary TV Comeback Special. It was here that the King reclaimed his crown in one of his greatest performances of all time. With Kruse GWS Auctions’ long-standing reputation for offering the most iconic Elvis Presley memorabilia and producing record-breaking auctions in entertainment memorabilia, fine jewelry, iconic fashion, and Royal artifacts, the auction house will exclusively offer the incredible Elvis Presley 1968 Comeback Special Cherry Red Hagstrom Viking II guitar at the Artifacts of Hollywood & Music Auction to be held on Saturday, March 27, 2021 beginning at 10:00 a.m. P.T.

The Hagstrom Viking II guitar was played by the King of Rock and Roll, on December 3, 1968, on NBC Television. This marked the superstar’s return to live performance after seven years when his career was centered on the movie business. The guitar is cherry red with a majestic mother of pearl inlay and is also pictured with Elvis on the cover of his RCA album “From Elvis in Memphis.” There is no other guitar in Elvis Presley’s history that stood for a more monumental moment. The sheet music from the TV special will also be included in the auction. (photo right: Elvis Presley Hagstrom Viking II guitar)

The original special came together when Presley’s manager Col. Tom Parker and producer Bob Finkel formulated a strategy for Presley’s return to live touring. The tour’s launch began with The International Hotel in Las Vegas. The guitar has been exhibited at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum and has been in the same collection for almost 30 years.

Of other major historical proportions, there is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a varied collection of original 16mm workprint film reels from the 1970 Academy Award-winning Woodstock documentary by Michael Wadleigh. For 50 years, the film has been the primary reference for pop culture historians. It has been deemed as one of the most important films of the era and is revered as such to this day. The lot gives an authentic snapshot of what occurred at Max Yasgur’s field and an extraordinary offering of music’s most celebrated event.

Film and Television Cars included in the auction include:

  • The 1950 Cadillac Fleetwood from the iconic film “The Godfather” and originally owned by Mae West
  • The 2006 Dodge Viper SRT One-of-a-Kind Bravado Banshee from “Grand Theft Auto V”

  • The 1964 Leslie Special from “The Great Race” and others.

From the monumental to the unexpected, the auction celebrates some of the highest-grossing films in entertainment history, music’s most memorable moments, and personal items from screen goddesses and award-winning actors.

“Kruse GWS Auctions is beyond thrilled to exclusively offer one of the most iconic guitars from Elvis Presley’s career – The 1968 Comeback TV Special was groundbreaking for Elvis and was a moment where he solidified and carved out his place in music history. This was truly “Elvis Un-Plugged.” I have dreamed of selling this iconic piece of history for as long as I can remember. This guitar played such a significant role in Elvis’ career and the world once again proclaimed him as the “King,” after his unforgettable performance. Along with many other exceptional artifacts like the original Woodstock film reels, iconic movie, and TV cars as well as other items from the world of music and entertainment, this guitar truly stands alone as one of the most important historical items we have had the honor and privilege of selling.” – Dame Brigitte Kruse, Founder, and Lead Auctioneer, Kruse GWS Auctions.

Alondra Delgado Q&A

By: Javier Pedroza

From acting out telenovelas scenes on “The Island of Enchantment” to Hollywood, California…

Say hello to actress Alondra Delgado, born in Mayaguez and raised in Arecibo Puerto Rico. Ms. Delgado is very proud of her Latina heritage and can currently be seen as Vanessa Montes on the CW football drama , ‘ALL AMERICAN’  ’, which follows the journey of star player Spencer James (Daniel Ezra) as he is recruited away from his homeschool to play for Beverly Hills High. Vanessa is the daughter of the new head coach and the confident new girl at school who has a history with one of her classmates. The cast also includes Taye Diggs and Samantha Logan. The third season is airing now. While Delgado has guest starred, wrote, and produced other shows and short films, this role has introduced the young actress to an exciting new level of stardom. Here at 360 Magazine, we dished with Delgado about her role on All American, upcoming involvement in the film Safe House, her Puerto Rican heritage and Latinx idols, and more.

  1. How was your upbringing in Puerto Rico?

My childhood in Puerto Rico was beautiful. I love Puerto Rico. It involved a lot of dancing, since that’s what I started with first when I was two and a half years old, going to the beach, studying in a bilingual school, and acting on feature films when I was seven years old. It was great! 

  1. What are some of your favorite things about your community / culture?

I love the people and the warmth and passion we all have; and of course the food!  We always have a party in every activity. We are loud, passionate, and very prideful of our tiny Island! 

  1. What attracted you to begin a career as an actress?

Growing up I never liked cartoons that much. I was always fascinated with the Telenovelas and would play out scenes and act like the mean characters. My mom saw my passion so she put me with a talent agency. I did my first feature film when I was seven, and I fell in love. 

  1. Where were you and what was your reaction when you received the call from CW confirming your role as Vanessa Montes?

I was at my mom’s house with all my family decorating for Halloween. My manager and agents called me and I screamed and jumped and hung up the phone three times by accident. I was so excited! And it was great that my close family was there because we got to celebrate right away.

  1. How has your experience been, so far as the new girl at school on All American?

It’s been great! I’ve had a lot of fun and have learned a lot. It’s an experience I’ll never forget.

  1. Can you describe how you feel working alongside Taye Diggs and Samantha Logan?

It is amazing. At first I was a bit scared and nervous to be on set because this is a great cast. But once I was there, they were very nice to me and I’ve been learning a lot about them. 

  1. Will we see more writing & producing any time soon?

I’ve been writing some things recently so that is definitely something that will come soon, hopefully. 

  1. Who are your role models in life?

There are many Puerto Rican figures that always inspire me, like Rita Moreno and Benicio del Toro, who have had a great career in Hollywood and always represent the Island. Someone I always look up to is Roberto Clemente, who had a huge passion for baseball and loved helping others. That is something I would love to do!

  1. With the lack of Latinx talent representation (in front and behind the cameras) in Hollywood, how would you advise “the industry” to move forward?

I think lately there have been a few more Latinos out there, but we definitely need more. I would say that we need to stop writing characters that are specifically Hispanic rather than giving roles to Hispanic actors. There is always this mindset that the character has to be this or has to be that, rather than hiring people because of talent and not looks. So many people have started to watch All American and are excited because there is more Latino representation now. We need to change our mindsets and hire because of talent! 

  1. Any advice for teenagers who dream of writing, acting and producing?

Go for it! If you have a passion, you have to try it. You have to have a positive mindset because it will not be easy and you’ll face rejection, but you have to learn how to trust and believe in yourself and your talent. If you work hard enough, you’ll make it. 

  1. What is one of your top acting tips?

I love to learn the lines and then just play with it. Read it with different people and you will find different things from each read that will help you create a character with more depth. 

  1. What can you tell us about your upcoming film Safe House?

I am so excited for this one! It’s an action film. I play Carla and she is the lead character. She’s a strong female lead with a lot of stunts and drama. People will love her!
