This site will be about many things including those we have an "actor crush" on. This is when you develop a crush on someone's acting skills, think Philip Seymour Hoffman (RIP), Clifton Collins Jr., Rachel McAdams, Viola Davis, Emilia Jones (Coda) and now Kate Winslet.

Where have I been? Not until I binged-watched Kate Winslet's interviews on the acting PROCESS, I realized I want to do this. I want to be an actor (actress). This was BEFORE the Mare of Easttown hype. Watching her movies/shows is the best free actor's guide/education EVER. Even just looking at how she takes in the persons she's speaking with or the environment she's in. SHOULD note that it was Francis Lee's 2020 film Ammonite and then learning about the why / what / acting process from Kate interviews, that sparked something amazing and unexpected.

I am a minority: Female, Asian (Chinese), and LGBTQ+. My pronouns are she/her.

Many years ago, I had an agent. Then I really got into my day job (which I still enjoy). Enriched my life by dancing and performing on stage for years, and traveling around the world visiting my friends in different countries/cultures. Now I'm back in Calgary Canada (close to Vancouver) with the money and work flexibility to pursue this. Plus my job as a project manager allows me to strategize, communicate, adjust my communication styles to suit the audience, and learn about different persons, personalities, and cultures. I'm also an experienced Toastmaster & public speaker. I love public speaking if the message is positive, educational, or funny.

I get it: It's one of the hardest jobs to do. Acting isn't about pretending, it's about being real and becoming the character using your own process that works best for you. It's not glamorous, and never perfect. I'm excited and more importantly, I'm scared but in an awesome way. And this shows my passion. I'm starting at the very beginning again. I'm female, Asian (Chinese), and LGBTQ+. Yes, I'd rather admit outright because I don't have anything and thus, I have nothing to lose. I'd rather not worry about hiding but more importantly, I don't want to do any disservice to the LGBTQ+ community or to my LGBTQ+ friends by perpetuating any type of "hidden shame". And for the record, it's very easy for me to play straight, been doing it most of my life. And people who meet me assume I'm married to a man, and have children LOL. 

Quote from Kate from 2022 International Women's Day: "Try not to be hard on yourself if you don't get a role you really wanted, just keep going." She adds, “Don’t scrutinize your appearance, it will only make you self-conscious and becomes a distraction.” The bottom line is to “enjoy it,” Winslet says. “Acting is a joy and a pleasure. Just keep enjoying what it feels like.” SIDE NOTE: It may be easier for her to say something like this, as she can have any role she wants now, since Titanic, without auditioning!;)

These are some of the amazing quotes from Kate about acting and being an actor/actress:

It is difficult, it is definitely a hard job to do and you do have to keep working at it, you do have to keep practicing things you have to allow yourself to make mistakes.

You have to keep at it, if it’s the thing you really want to do with your life you just have to keep going and keep yourself busy! Don’t wait for the phone to ring! Fill your life in other areas – the more you enrich your life, the more you will enrich your life as an actor and as a person.
