Hi Isabella, please tell us a little about you?
Hello, thank you for taking the time to interview me. To start I have grown up in southern California all my life. I grew up with a drive to perform, once I grew older I started to chase after my dream of becoming an actor. Now I strive to be a good community member, person and actor.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
If I had to describe myself in three words they would be confident, motivated and hard working.
How did you get started into acting?
I started acting in plays at my elementary school. From there I ventured out in performing in dance competitively. After realizing that the thing I loved from dance was telling a story I started to take acting classes. From there I fell more in love with acting and performing.
How has this changed your life?
Acting has changed my life in many ways. To start I have met some of my life long friends in the process of furthering my craft.
What is the best and worst part of being an actor?
The best part of being an actor is telling a story that then helps others have a moment of peace. However, one of the worst parts about being an actor is the rejection you face on the job. When you don’t book a job they don’t tell you that you don’t. This was one of the hardest things for me to learn when I first started in the industry.
How do you prepare for a role?
Every time I get a role I prepare differently. The one thing that I do the same is break down the script and relate it to my life. For each character I will relate it to someone who is in my life and channel their energy.
Tell us about your work on the very popular Dhar Mann TV series?
Whenever I get to be on set for Dhar Mann it is a blast. The set environment is so friendly and fun. I love the message that each video brings to everyone.
And about your work on the new drama “Heart ‘N’ Soul?”

What is the most rewarding part of your work?
The most rewarding part of my work would be telling a story. The whole movie making process is so magical and special to me.
What’s your advice for the newer actors?
My advice for newer actors would be to follow your dream and to not give up on it. Don’t get discouraged and always be yourself. There is nothing better than being yourself because that’s what a casting director is looking for.
What would you say are the greatest lessons you learned so far in this business?
The greatest lessons I’ve learned in the business would be to value myself and believe in myself.
How would your best friend describe you?
My best friend would describe me as mature and companionable. The specific word she used was “adulting.”
If you are a book, what would be the title of the book and why?
If I were a book the title would be something like “Living my Double Life”. While being a high school student and an actor it’s almost like being in LA and where I will have two different lives.

If I could give advice to my younger self I would say to slow down and enjoy the little moments.

If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
If I could meet anyone living or dead I would meet Rita Moreno. She is such a role model for myself as an actress and as a Latina.
Best advice ever given?
Some of the best advice I have ever gotten would be from my mom and from Carolyn Hennessy. My mom always told me to follow my dreams and to be true to myself. I am so fortunate to have parents who help me follow my dreams. Carolyn told me to be fearless in my craft and don’t settle for less than I am worth. She also said that as soon as acting isn’t fun anymore I should stop. She explained that the industry will make or break a person.
Do you support any charity?
My favorite charity to support is Best Buddies. They just had their Friendship walk in Long Beach in April.I love best buddies because they help people with special needs get the opportunities that all people should get to have and experience.

Favorite song? Why?
