Exclusive Interview: Alexandra Rosario talks California Dreams

23 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In an exclusive interview, Flickering Myth sat down with New York-based actress Alexandra Rosario to talk about acting and the release of her latest film California Dreams

Have you always wanted to be an actress? How did acting come about for you?

Yes, I always wanted to be an actress, since I was 6 years old. I have no idea where that desire came from, I just always had an internal certainty of acting being my calling in life. And that has never changed!

What and who inspired you to become an actress?

When I was growing up I used to watch a lot of movies. At times I would get deeply touched by an actor’s great performance and it would stay with me for a while. I used to dream that one day I would be able to do the same. Some of the actors that have inspired me are Meryl Streep, »

Michael Redington obituary

5 February 2017 9:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

In 1948 my father, Michael Redington, was a young member of the Old Vic Company’s triumphant tour of Australia, headed by Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh. His admiration for both actors was boundless, and Olivier’s performance as Richard III, he felt, was a theatrical epiphany.

But when he married Ann Connell two years later, Michael accepted an actor’s life was precarious and joined Atv, taking on a role in live television production. He worked with Kenneth Clark in the early 1960s before the art historian’s great success with the BBC Civilisation series. He also put TV religious programmes on the map, securing a Bafta for his efforts. Michael won an Eisenhower fellowship and travelled throughout the Us in the 60s during the time of the civil rights movement.
