Can you tell us about some of the highlights of your career so far?
I started of with a soap opera. I really enjoyed my character it was very different from anything I’ve done before. It has a tragic life. My breakout role I believe would be Samurai Girl, it’s coming out September 5th, 6th and 7th and it has just been an amazing adventure. From kicking butt through martial arts, swinging the Samurai Katana sword, and learning the Samurai way. As well as emotionally growing as a character and as an actor. It has been fantastic. Also, Dragonball which comes out in April of 2009. I don’t know if you ever seen the cartoon, but it is based on a Dragonball series by Viz Media which has been a mega comic success in Japan, the Unites States, and internationally. Dragonball has a huge cult following. I got to play the role of Chi Chi which is Goku’s love interest played by Justin Chatwin. The movie was shot in Mexico City and in Durango City. Dragonball is my first motion picture deal, I never done anything like this before. It was pretty ecstatic to play these roles back to back.
