How did you get into acting?

Since I was a little girl, I was doing theatre in my home country Slovakia. Later in high school, I was studying in Mexico where I was doing musicals, and after high school, I started to do modelling, tv commercials and movies. Since then I do nothing else but acting. Recently I started to write my own scripts. Now finished my first movie called Daytime Nightmare which I produced, directed and acted as the main actress. The movie should be finished by the end of 2018 and will be ready to go to festivals. I also just finished the second script that I want to produce soon and afterwards four more scripts in development.

When did you start your acting career?

I would say I started full time in 2013 when I arrived in Thailand and had a taste of how it is working on Hollywood movies. My first movie was All I see is you directed by Marc Forster.

Who is your agent?

Currently, my agency is ML International Talent.

What’s your biggest dream, doesn’t have to do anything with acting?

Well, my biggest dream is movies related. I want to be acting in high budget sci-fi and fantasy movies as the leading actress and also directing them. But generally be happy, have my own house with garden, fulfilling life and travel the world.

Any advice that you’d give to starting actors?

If you want to achieve anything, give it your best at all times and work hard, keep improving all your skills and craft. Do everything by yourself, don’t expect anybody to give you anything for free. Give respect to everybody and always remember those who helped you and help them back when you can. Acting is a lifelong carrier where you have to improve yourself constantly.

Is there anything you would change about your career?

I would not change anything at this point. I am happy with what I do. I enjoy writing, acting, directing.

Maybe that I have a bachelor degree in economics and beginning of the next year going be hopefully finishing a master degree.
