I understand you began your career in modeling, and are a former Playboy Playmate. If memory serves, you would be the first Playmate we have featured on the site. So thank you so much! I am curious as to what it was like in that world? Besides the obvious differences in wardrobes (or the lack there of, in of them) how does working for a publication like Playboy differ from other modeling experiences you have had?

Playboy was a personal goal of mine for years . I always admired how to embraced female sexual freedom and showed it in a positive light . Working with Playboy was different from other publications because of its respected brand and professionalism, even though nude , its highly respected and transfers over into more opportunities . It’s not judged negatively like other sexy magazines.

And when did your modeling career manage to meld into the wonderful career you have had as an actress and producer now? Was there any sort of knowledge or lessons learned that you took from the world to use in your career to this day?

I’m an artist and entrepreneur, so I’m always expanding into different lanes . I love being in the entertainment industry , in front of the camera and behind . I’m very aware of the limiting career a model or actress can have , so to stay busy and financially stable by having multiple hustles. I solely modeled only for a few years , I craved something more to express myself and build success – which led me to theater acting and soon tv and movies . Producing became quickly after I became an actress, a way for me to create my own opportunities and ideal roles . I’ve been on my own since a very young age , which prepares me for such a shark industry.

 

 

While it is not your primary field of work, you have produced and given some amazing performances in our favorite genre of film, the world of horror. I always love to ask people working in the world of horror what exactly it is that draws them to this world? And what do you believe it is about the world of horror that sets itself apart from the other genres that are out there? 

Horror has always been a favorite genre of mine. The reason being is that it’s so contrast to my natural mind and spirit , the realms of darkness are so different from how I live and think – which fascinates me . I’m naturally curious and anything that’s foreign to me is going to grab my attention. I also love the action , the raw emotion and art in the special effects/set design etc .

I am very intrigued by a project that you recently appeared in, entitled 2050. It seems like a very interesting sci-fi project. So, I am curious to know what drew you to this story? What was it about this project that made you want to work on it? 

2050 came out on Valentine’s Day this year and we began filming in 2016- it was my first movie . I was very drawn to the project because of the challenge of playing a non human character. It’s an awesome indie film about the human /machine connection – playing a robot was fun and very different from what you’re taught as an actor .

I’m happy for People to see the movie because you worked really hard on it, And a lot of creativity and dedication went into it. People should be excited about the amazing special effects ,genuine acting and the fact we did this amazing movie with an independent budget.

If you were given the opportunity to write and portray any renowned person in American history in a biopic, who would it be?

Angela Davis, she represents feminism, black excellence, and homosexual rights . I’m a strong black woman and I would love to represent another one. She also has some negative Misconceptions about her I would like to speak upon.

 

What does the future hold for you? Anything you would like to plug to our readers?

I currently just did the film Hustlers with J. Lo, Cardi B , Lili Reinhart , Keke Palmer and producer Will Ferrell. Coming out September 13th . I also just played the lead role in this music movie called Bars. Also doing multiple Netflix shows and movies. Also have music constantly being released.

What was the last thing that made you smile? 

My boyfriend Donald’s face, he’s also my manager and music producer .
