Today we interview the beautiful, and mysterious French actress, Roxanne Sinclair.
As a world citizen I spent my life between Europe, China and the US, following opportunities life brought me. I have now settled in Los Angeles to act full time. My weeks are spent between screen and theatre as I love both; I am also writing and producing my own projects as I believe that we create own chances in life!
What first drew you to acting?
I think I started performing right when I got on my own two feet, as I recall twirling and dancing right in the middle of the city main plaza as they had summer concerts and inviting my neighbors to see my shows as I could hardly speak. But it’s at the age of nine that drown to the evidence my mother enrolled me in a drama class and I started in my first plays. We then moved to England where I kept on acting. Then at the age of 13 I wrote my first screenplay and turned it into a movie.
What was you performance education like?
I remember I was 8 when I first saw Titanic, and got fascinated by the expression of Kate Winslet eyes as she got out of the car in her first scene, her work never stop inspiring me since that moment. But what got me passionate about acting are the books who transported me in other worlds, putting me in the shoes of characters I just wanted to embody and feel as such as Tatiana in the great book of Paullina Simons “The bronze horseman”. Today it’s when I take the bus running from auditions to auditions that I loose myself looking at people and trying to get a grasp of their life, how they feel and what they dream of…
Which actors do you draw inspiration from?
I’ve studied in acting classes for theatre since the age of nine in the UK, France and Italy. I followed many workshops for acting for films and television and private coaching with Nadya Buzzetti in Italy, before following the conservatory program taught by acting coach, Michelle Danner at the Los Angeles Acting School, Marek Probosz and Brian Drillinger at the Edgemar acting Studio in Los Angeles.
Which of your roles have given you the most satisfaction? Why?
Well, so far I loved playing very intense roles especially in World War Two pieces. I’ve also recently discovered my ‘dark side’ playing with psychopathic and violent characters. Although being this driven, sexy but still ingenue character in the new comedic series Uncensored Hollywood directed by Derek Ried is always lots of fun!
Do you have any future projects planned?
Recurring character in two series, I am also working on several shorts and am in a theatre show in West Hollywood that will still be running for the next month… In the meantime I am also writing a feature and a musical as I believe in creating my own chances and offering myself the chance of playing the roles I dream of… waiting for the phone to ring ain’t for me
If you could co-star with anyone, who would you chose? Why?
My ideal co-star? That’s a tough one as there is so many good shows at the moment; and I can’t help but think about ‘House of Cards’ right now as the new episodes are coming up..
What are you goals for the future?
My plans are pretty simple…enjoy each day, and act my ass off as it is what I love to do. All that with challenged and movies coming along…
Do you have any advice for aspiring actors?
I’d actually love to share one that one of my favorite artist, Alan Rickman, gave me a couple of years back: get a life, cause you can only recreate in artificial circumstances what you felt first in real ones.
