  1. Can you tell us about how you got your start in acting?

I always enjoyed acting out scenes and using my imagination and was young when I knew I wanted to be an actor.   Beginning at the age of 10,  I spent the next 2 summers studying with a fantastic coach in Dallas working on my craft and auditioning before coming out for pilot season at the age of 12.  It was during this time that I booked my first feature film. It takes hard work and dedication and I love it!


  1. What is your favorite part about acting?

I have so many reasons why I love acting, but my favorite part about acting is being able to do what I love. I enjoy trying new things, travelling, meeting people and exploring characters.

I also like going outside my comfort zone and learning from others.


  1. Can you tell us about your character on “Project MC²”?

I play Ember Evergreen on the Netflix series Project MC2.  Ember is an intelligent botanist who loves plants, animals and all things in nature.  She is a sassy southern gal who loves to have fun.


  1. How are you similar and different than your character?

Well, Ember and I both love nature and animals as well as science.  Both Ember and I have southern roots and are confident individuals.

As far as differences, I don’t have a thick southern accent and my wardrobe style isn’t as colorful though I love her flower flare.


  1. What is it like being a part of the Awesomeness TV family?



  1. Do you have any other upcoming projects?

I’m currently working on Project MC2 and I look forward to filming season 4 soon.


  1. What is your favorite halloween costume you’ve ever worn?

My favorite Halloween costume was hands down Napoleon Dynamite complete with a belly bag full of tator-tots and a stick of cherry chapstick…  I’ve dressed up before, however, last year was my first time to actually trick or treat mainly because I’m not much a candy person.


  1. What is your favorite candy?

I like salty better than sweet but I do love bubble gum!


  1. What is your favorite horror movie?

Havenhurst of course!  It was so thrilling to be part of a film that was based on a true story.  I love the movie magic that goes into horror films,  I have a whole new respect for these types of movies.

Interview With Sydney Alton! (@SydneyAlton)

15 Oct

1. How did you get your start in the music industry?

I’ve been singing and songwriting since a very young age, and it happened very naturally for me. At first I would just start posting covers on youtube, eventually I made the move out to LA to pursue my dreams and I started to professionally record my music. I was a runner up in the song of the year competition which was super cool since that was my original music! I’ve been waiting to put out my original music for awhile so I am super excited for world to hear it!

2. Who are your musical influences?

I have so many musical influences! I love music so much. A lot of artist that inspire me are Whitney Houston, Carrie Underwood, Demi Lovato, Jessie J, Taylor Swift. I really love to listen to all genres of music because it inspires me to grow as an artist and performer.

3. Can you tell us about your single “Soldier”?

Soldier is my first single, I wrote it a couple of years ago. The second I wrote it I knew that I wanted it to be my first single. I think its inspirational, but also a song you can vibe out to in the car with your friends.

4. What inspired the song?

It was right after I made the move to LA, my family made a lot of sacrifices for me to be here and I felt like Soldier was a song that inspired me to keep moving forward even through the tough times which is why I can’t wait for my fans to hear it, I hope that it inspires them so that they know no matter how big the “war” that they are fighting, they are a soldier and they can do anything.

5. Do you have an EP or album in the works?

I am hoping that the launch of Soldier will open doors for me to start working on an EP, I don’t when I will be making it but I will definitely be making it.

6. Do you have any upcoming projects that you’d like your fans to know about?

I am going to have a lyric video coming out for Soldier! I may be releasing a Christmas song so look out for that! In my spare time I also for my sisters fashion blog, her blog is super inspirational for young teens and adults to dress like everyday is a runway.

7. What is your favorite Halloween costume you’ve ever worn?

I have a couple favorite halloween costumes. Last year I was Snow White and that was definitely one of my favs, and the other is when I was five I dressed up as Belle so basically all of the disney princesses.

8. Do you have any holiday traditions?

For the holidays I really just love being with my family and eating tons of food. My family is middle eastern so we eat a lot of traditional Chaldean food, its so good. I also bake Christmas cookies every year with my little cousins, and I have an elf of the shelf that stays out all year.

9. What are your social media handles?

Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat are all @Sydneyalton and youtube is


“Solider” is now available on iTunes and Spotify

Interview With Veronica Mannion! (@VeronicaMan)

7 Oct


1. How did you get your start in the entertainment industry?
I grew up acting in plays and doing theater.  I got a degree in it, performed in theaters around San Francisco, decided to make the move to LA and then realized I knew nothing about acting!  So I just kept auditioning, kept submitting myself, writing my own material, finally I got my manager who got me into some great casting offices and then finally my theater background paid off and everything clicked and I booked it.  
2. Can you tell us about your character on HBO’s upcoming comedy series “Insecure?”
We first meet Kitty as that annoying co-worker in the pilot episode who asks Issa “what does ‘on fleek’ mean?”. Kitty is trying to be Issa’s bestie. She’s ignorant but she means well.  Kitty loves anything vintage or retro, has a huge crush on her co-worker Ken, and especially loves cats…obviously.
3. Are you anything like your character?
I can be perhaps be a bit clueless and say the wrong thing… I think everyone has that annoying side to them, and with this character I tapped into mine.
4. How did you land the role?
My manager got me the audition for one line in a HBO pilot last September. I booked the job off tape so didn’t have to go to a callback or producer’s session!  We shot it and I crossed my fingers that I wouldn’t be cut from the episode and that the show would be picked up.  I heard in April that they had written me into four more episodes!
5. What is a typical work day like on set?
You show up to hair and makeup, get dressed in your own little trailer, then go to set and usually have to wait around a bit. You eat the delicious food spread, and then you start shooting your scenes where you get to act and try new things.  A typical day can last anywhere from 5 to 16 hours on set.  Basically, a dream come true!
6. Do you have a favorite episode you’ve filmed so far?
Maybe episode 3! We took a field trip to the beach and… well, you’ll have to watch!
7. Do you have any upcoming projects?
I just had the pleasure of shooting with Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon in Ryan Murphy’s upcoming FX show “FEUD!”. I have a small part in the second episode coming out next year!
8. What are your social media accounts?
