Academy Newsletter Interview - June 2022

Actress/Kid Host/Kid Reporter Lacey Caroline from Charlotte,
North Carolina has a lot going on! 
The 15-year old Young Artist Academy™ Award Winner shares about some of her favorite projects, making friendships in the Entertainment Industry, and how she ‘stays relevant’ as a performer.

I really love super heroes, specifically The Batman and dream of being a superhero someday. I am a huge fan of the outdoors and being inspired through indie-pop music. I also love binge watching some of my favorite shows and using those characters as references in auditions and performances. 

I have been in lots of short films and an awesome television spec pilot. Most noteworthy has to be the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, A Christmas Love Story and as the NASCAR and Supercross Kid Reporter. I love the families that you make on a set or in a show. It is a really special bond that you create and it's so cool to see someone you have met or worked with before on another project. 

Recently, I have really focused on my dramatic acting, which I was a little hesitant with before, and am in mixed martial arts classes - training for that future role as a superhero! 

Business Advice:  Never lose yourself in the industry and remember why you love to act. 

Networking Tip: Networking is so important in this industry and it's so important to stay relevant. I am always checking Actors Access or Backstage for upcoming projects and look at who is casting and directing. I will do research on the teams and their projects so that I can have an understanding of what they are looking for and sometimes we connect via social media. As much as I want to work, I want to make sure that I am working for and with great people!

Look for Lacey in several short films on the festival circuit: Worm Radio, Youth, and Beyond the Yard. Also catch Lacey in The Rush Call, in two more short films in production, as well as a regional production of Legally Blonde in Davidson NC!
