Q) What are the recent projects that you are working on?
A) The next project lined up for me is with the same director as 10 Days In a Madhouse, Timothy Hines. We are working on another feature film, which I can’t share too many details about. I’m really excited to be working with him again. As an actor, it’s important to be able to speak the same language as the director, and we do have that connection. I’m even more thrilled to be working with him again because all of his projects center around the human struggle and stories that are important socially and historically.
Q) Please tell us the premise for your film 10 Days In a Madhouse and about your character Nellie.
A) The movie is set in 1887 and follows the true story of Nellie Bly, who was the world’s first undercover reporter. One of her first big assignments was given to her by editor Joseph Pulitzer to go undercover into a madhouse. At the young age of twenty-three, she risked everything: her career, her sanity and her life. She pretended to be a crazy person and convinced everyone she should be put away. For ten days, Nellie lived in the infamous Blackwell’s Island Insane Asylum, where she witnessed some pretty horrible things. After she got out, she exposed the truth to the world. It’s such an incredible story and I feel really honored to be a part of it.
