We had the good fortune of connecting with Theadina Von Seyfried and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Theadina, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I believe that risk taking is essential for the progress of anyone’s life. Calculated risk taking is even more important- knowing when to strike and being ever aware that things come into fruition when they’re meant to be. If I would not have taken any risks I would not be where I am today!

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.
I grew up in an environment that was very artistic and creative. I painted, read books, acted, modeled, and did photography when I was little. My parents always played classic Old-Hollywood films growing up and I believe that planted a seed in me to pursue acting. I am an artist first and foremost. My brand is eccentric, eclectic and delightfully weird. The lesson I’ve learned along the way is to be authentic, passionate and to never lose sight of your goal.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would start off the day by having a nice brunch at my favorite LA spots The Ivy or WeHo Bistro! I love brunch. I would then grab an iced matcha from Alfred’s Coffee on Melrose Place then check out The Grove. They have so many cool things to do & see there. Ladurée in Beverly Hills is a great place as well (I love cafes!). They have delicious French pastries and cute decor. I would then check out LACMA since I’m a huge art-nerd.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
“The Prophet” by Khalil Gibran is an amazing book that has helped me immensely during both difficult and happy times. It’s a great book that I feel everyone should read.
