Rachel Redleaf [Interview]

Happy Friday, Folks! And welcome back to another wonderful interview to close out the week. Today we have some words from the brilliant Rachel Redleaf! Rachel is an incredible actress that I discovered on one of my favorite television series that is streaming these days, the Netflix Original Series Atypical. She has been fantastic on this program, and I was inspired to reach out and learn a bit more about her, and some of the other work that she has done. And wouldn’t you know it, she is just a damn gem of a person and gave some wonderful answers for you all today.

Next month, Rachel will actually be appearing in a film that I am so incredibly excited to check out, which is the 9th film from legendary director Quentin Tarantino entitled Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. Rachel will talk about it below, but I promise you all, no spoilers! She will also appear in a new Miranda July project coming out soon that I am also very excited about.

Rachel is an amazing actress, and an even more amazing person. We are so honored to have her grace our digital pages today. So without further babbling, please enjoy some words from the wonderful Rachel Redleaf!

What inspired you to get into the world of the performing arts? Was it an aspiration you have had since your youth, or did you just happen to find yourself in this world one day?

I’ve wanted to perform for as long as I can remember. I did my first show, Wizard of Oz, when I was 4 at Desert Stages Theater in Scottsdale, AZ and I never looked back. I got interested in film more recently and decided to study it in college and here I am:)

You have had a reoccurring role in one of my favorite series of the modern age, the Netflix Original Series Atypical. You are so wonderful on this program. I am curious to know what your experience has been like working on this project? It’s such a heartwarming and inspiring show. Have you had any sort of inspiring moments whilst working on this show that are memorable and have impacted your career thus far?

The entire cast is so amazing to work with. This show is what jumpstarted my career and it continues to impact my life, not only with fans and further auditions, but with meaning and friendships. 

I understand you are set to appear in the Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. I am also very curious to know about this experience. I know you can’t expose much about the film itself, but what was it like to work on a project of this magnitude, and working under the guise of a legend like QT?

It was like dream. I still can’t believe it’s real. Working with Quentin was so life changing. He cares so much about everyone on his sets and his passion shines through and it’s so inspiring. I’m honored to have gotten to work with him and on such an amazing film.

 

 

You also have another project coming out at some point in the near future that was directed by another legendary director, the great Miranda July. Would you be able to tell our readers a little bit about what they should expect from this film?

It’s a heist film with lots of heart and I get to play a pregnant lady with an agenda which was definitely a new and exciting experience! I also had my first onscreen kiss. 

If you were given the opportunity to portray any famous or renowned person in American history, who would it be?

Bette Midler! I’ve always been compared to her and I think it’s the biggest compliment ever because she is my hero and I would love to portray her or even CC Bloom in Beaches The Musical someday!

What does the future hold for you? Anything you would like our readers to know about? And how can they stay in touch with you via the Internet?

Well I absolutely love musical theater so I hope that you can see me on Broadway one day. Check out my website for updates http://www.rachelredleaf.com or my Instagram @rachelredleaf

What was the last thing that made you smile? 

Making my graduation cap with my best friend Kennedy!
