We had the good fortune of connecting with Brittany Wolf and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brittany, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
The lesson that acting has taught me is super simple but sometimes hard to accomplish. And that is to just have fun. As an actor, walking into an audition room can be very nerve-racking. Especially when you’re auditioning in front of producers and directors. It’s true when they say, you will hear 50 no’s before you hear 1 yes. Sometimes those no’s can start to affect your future additions, but you have to remember that you are there for a reason! So instead of getting in your head, or preplanning what you are going to do, just remember to let go, play, and most of all have fun.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Unfortunately, due to the lockdown, I haven’t been too busy with filming. But it has given me an opportunity to create some small skits for Instagram, and get the opportunity to do some open call self tapes. Before quarantine, I found myself focusing more on my regular job than acting. So this gave me a good opportunity to get back on track with submitting, self tapes, watching movies etc. I’ve got a lot of short films and student films under my built, so I am excited to get myself into some bigger casting doors!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Most of my friends live in Ohio and have never been to California. So the typical tourist sites would probably be a good place to start. Hollywood, a hike, shopping and the beach. A lot of my friends love sushi, so a good sushi place or introduce them to poke. Possibly a roof top bar later at night. And depending on who is coming to visit, then maybe Disney for a day.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
There are a lot of people I give credit to, but I think the first would be my parents. I know I wouldn’t be in the position that I am today without them. The list is endless with how they’ve helped me, and I hope one day I can repay them back. I have truly been blessed with amazing parents, and I hope they know how grateful I am for them. Another group of people would be all of my acting coaches. I came out to Los Angeles with no acting classes under my belt, and they have given me some of the best advice that I use in my every day acting. What I love about them, is that they truly care about you as a person. They know what it takes to be an actor/actress out here, and I love how much they care about their students. Honestly, everyone that has ever believed in me and pushed me to keep going deserves a shoutout! There are so many people that have said many encouraging words to me, and it has played a big part in my career.
