We had the good fortune of connecting with Chloe Adona and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chloe, why did you pursue a creative career?
Performing and entertaining through my music, singing and acting has always been a dream and a passion of mine.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I started dance and theater when I was 4 years old. After doing a background role for a feature film when I was 10, I knew I wanted to transition to film and tv. So I started taking acting lessons focused on tv and film. My acting coach saw my potential, referred me to my agent and manager now.
Booking a role for Stranger Things was one of my big highlights in my career. The crazy thing is that I put it on my 2021 vision board in two weeks later I booked a role in my favorite tv show! Another thing I’m really proud of was releasing my first single benefiting The Atlanta Community Food Bank. It was a song I wrote when I was 9-10 years old. I raised approximately $4000, which is enough to make 14,000 meals.
One of the things I learned early on from my theater life was handing rejection with grace. In theater, I went through the audition process for roles and remember crying about not getting a role in the production. I see now that those “no’s” were learning experiences.
I want everyone to know that if they work hard enough they can accomplish anything at any stage in life!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Georgia has so many fun things to do. We would definitely visit Six Flags and spend a full day there. After all the rides, the next day we would go on a relaxing tubing trip down the Chattahoochee river in Helen, GA. Then we would visit The small quaint town of Dahlonega to eat, shop and hang out! We would squeeze in a trip to the Georgia Aquarium and to the Coca Cola Museum! And to tie it all off, we would go to the Fox Theater and watch an amazing show!
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?
My mom. She has been there since day one. She’s gone through the ups and downs with me and everything in between. I wouldn’t have made it to where I am without her. She’s not only my mom, but also my best friend, and I’m so grateful to have her with me on this journey. My mom helped my dreams turn into reality.
