We had the good fortune of connecting with Anuschka Van Lent and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Anuschka, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I moved from Germany all the way to the US to pursue my acting career, leaving your family and your hometown behind can be really scary but sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone in order to achieve better things and grow as an individual. I didn’t know if it’s gonna work out but I have the willpower to take the risk and go for it!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Where to start.. everybody has a childhood dream and mine was moving to America and become a Hollywood actress. I grew up in a small village in Germany where more cows than people live and the chances to reach bigger goals in Life were little. So I decided to move to the states after I graduated high school. jumped right into acting and studied at the ‘New York film academy’ and ‘The identity school of acting’ in Los Angeles. After that I landed some roles in the industry and grew enormously as an actress. I met a lot of people in the industry, some didn’t had the best intentions in mind with me and at first I didn’t realize it, but after I did it made me more aware that you have to protect your image in a big city like Los Angeles and that people here don’t always have the best intentions with you. At the end it’s always you against YOU. But even the lows in my acting career helped me grow. I am focusing on my drama/ horror career right now as an actress and at the same time entertain people on my Tik Tok account with comedy videos by demonstrating the culture differences between Germany and the US. At the end of the day my goal is to make people smile with my art.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my friends or family would come visit, I would start with a hike at ‘Runyon canyon’ and show them the beautiful view of Los Angeles. After that I would take them to the breakfast/lunch spot ‘Urth Cafe’ since it’s my favorite Place in L.A.! The beaches in Los Angeles are incredible, my favorite is in Malibu where the Ocean is just so peaceful and the Sunsets are incredible. That would be my perfect day in Los Angeles and of course you can’t forget to drink a cocktail at night in my favorite bar the Bungalow!

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 many people and schools that were part of my story and without them I couldn’t have done it. My inspiration when I was little was Cameron diaz and she was until today my favorite actress. Also my dad always supported me until today in my acting career and so did my friends! The identity school of acting literally changed my perspective on acting and I could see a HUGE improvement in my skill set! I also love the book “the secret” and I live by it also.
