Interview with actress Erin O’Brien

Erin O'Brien

Being in the heart of it all is where you need to be to really flourish. I would also say to make sure that you are really dedicated and mentally prepared for the ups and downs of this business.

I had the privilege to interview actress Erin O’ Brien born in California and known for her work in several movies such as Just Within Reach (2017), Fight Valley (2016) and Worthless (2017). Read the interview to find out more about her.

What inspired you to become an actress?
I’ve just always loved movies growing up. So good movies & and good actors inspired me. I just always knew that that this was the only profession that would make me happy.

What kind of roles do you prefer?
I really enjoy playing the tough girl. I play a tough girl a lot. But I would really like to expand and try some different kinds of roles. Every role I have played has been fun and a challenge in its own way.

What is the most extreme change to your personality or body that you have done to prepare for a role?
I haven’t done any huge physical changes yet, but I did work out and was very disciplined preparing for Fight Valley. I look forward to preparing for a role where I can go through an extreme physical change. That’s part of the fun of being an actor.

Any exciting projects coming up?
At the moment I am waiting on a couple projects to begin. One of them being “Fight Valley 2” I am also excited about the release of a few films coming out this fall. But no dates yet. I will keep everyone posted on my social media.

What advice would you give someone that wants to become an actor or actress?
First I would encourage them to make the move to Los Angeles or New York. Being in the heart of it all is where you need to be to really flourish. I would also say to make sure that you are really dedicated and mentally prepared for the ups and downs of this business. It’s not easy, that’s for sure. I would suggest that anyone who wants to be an actor get involved in an acting class, but sure do your research. There are a lot of people waiting to take advantage if you are new to this business. Another thing I would encourage, would be to work as an extra or even take a lot of free work in student films, the experience you will gain will be very helpful.
