Brianna Ferris- Featured Artist of the Month (December, 2013)

Featured Artist of the Month (December, 2013) DelBay talks to Brianna Ferris. Brianna Ferris is an American actress and director. Born and raised in Georgia, Brianna first got the acting bug at the age of 2 when she acted out scenes from Snow White with her Grandmother. She credits her Grandmother for introducing her to the wonderful world of role playing. At a very young age, Brianna would put together a production for the neighborhood and learned early on that acting takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Years later, a growing realization of the need to become what she had always dreamed of propelled her to move to New York after graduating from high school. Brianna is now in her 2nd year at the William Esper Studio, and she continues to hone her acting skills by working on various film projects like shorts and commercials. DelBayPictures: "Hi Brianna. When did you first get the acting bug?" Brianna: "Oh my... I've been playing pretend since I was two. My father would always follow me around with the camera... Thank you dad. I give thanks to my beautiful grandmother, for always playing pretend with me- acting out Snow White every week, AND my friends being in productions with me for the neighborhood. I was so serious, or dedicated I should say... when I put together a production for the neighborhood. Growing up people would say how expressive I was. Acting is a way to express myself, without getting in trouble." DelBayPictures: "What projects have you been in? And what was your first role?" Brianna: "I'm currently working on many student films, shorts, and commercials. My first speaking role was in a short with an amazing director (Matt Pope) as a waitress. The audition was so much fun. I did my line and we improvised the rest of the scene." DelBayPictures: "What kind of roles do you seek out?" Brianna: "A script that speaks to me and I get excited while I'm reading it. When I read a script and if it makes me laugh, smile, scream, or cry... I'm hooked!" DelBayPictures: "What do you do when you're not acting?" Brianna: "During my spare time... I spend time with my family, manifesting, writing, going to the movies weekly (sometimes daily- hehe), traveling, exercising, Pilates, spinning, and exploring new things. I truly love spontaneous days. I'm a spiritual young lady." DelBayPictures: "Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?" Brianna: "Five years from now... I see myself being a working, valued actress. Producing and starring in my own films. *SMILES BIG* I can't wait! Also, traveling the world and learning about other cultures." DelBayPictures: "Are you also interested in writing?" Brianna: "Yes, I love writing. No matter what your profession is, I believe it's important... because you express yourself, you free your mind. I'm currently working on a comedy- it's fun and I can't wait to share it. I'd love to co-direct... someday. I'm currently in my 2nd year at William Esper Studio- which is a Meisner technique school, it's amazing. Sandy was a genius! BELIEVE IN YOURSELF & KNOW YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT. Any human can do whatever pleases them, even if it means creating something that has never existed. One of my favorite quotes from Martha Graham, "First we have to believe, and then we believe."
