#Hashtag is exciting for me because it deals with relevant issues in a way I haven’t seen yet. It’s the search for love and connection in the world of social media-which is definitely an experience that’s unique to our generation. How to use the ‘cyber realities’ as a tool to find love in the ‘real world’-to varying degrees of success/failure & hilarity.
I met Christin and the Tello teams years ago while doing publicity for Exes & Ohs and we really got along. When she began creating original content for the site a few years ago she asked if I’d be interested. I said of course! I’m at a point in my journey as an actor where I’m most interested in working with interesting and inspiring people. “How you spend your days is how you spend your life” so I choose to spend them working with great people on projects that have something to say and contribute. Hashtag definitely fits the bill.
I flew out to Chicago from LA In October and that was definitely a climate shock for my newly ‘California-ized’ system so I ended up buying a lot of vintage coats while I was there. I also barely made it home because my departure day coincided with a storm/tornado that grounded pretty much every plane that day except mine. Tello shoots are never boring!
Tash is a fantastic character. She’s the ‘fun/sexy’ girl for sure but Laura & Caitlin layered in more depth than just that which is what drew me to the role.
Dinah’s alway crazy/fun and I’m excited to see how the film festival with fit in with all the other glorious debauchery (as well as the other independent projects they’ll present 😉
