SIENA AGUDONG [STAR FALLS]
What do you think sets you apart from other working young actors out there?
I have every intention of pursuing acting for a long while because it is truly something that I love so much. I act because I love the art of it all. From reading the scripts, to watching the completed product, it’s just absolutely amazing. I think my passion, determination, and the support I have will help me along this wonderful journey.
When and how did acting start for you?
I started acting at around the age of 6 or 7. I always followed whatever my older sister [Sydney] did, so when she started acting I began as well. I began in plays when I was little and immediately loved it. The amazing woman who is my manager now actually came to my hometown to do an acting workshop. From there, we met and she encouraged my sister and I to go to LA to start auditioning and we became her clients.
What’s your most memorable audition experience so far?
The most memorable audition experience was with Ms. Mary Joe Slater. I was originally auditioning for a movie with her as the casting director and just had so much fun in the audition with her. She ended up recommending me to another casting director for a different project. I auditioned for the other casting director and booked the role one day after I auditioned for him. This was the first project I had ever booked. It was such an amazing experience. It was for a recurring role in the ABC series, “Killer Woman” with Tricia Helfer and Michael Trucco.
If you’re not acting, what else keeps you busy?
If I am not acting, I am either hanging out with my family on the beach or playing soccer with my family or on my team :)
Tell us more about your character Sophia Miller in the TV Series Star Falls. How much do you relate to your character?
My character from Star Falls, Sophia Miller, is a bit like me in a few ways. We are both very passionate and determined when it comes to our goals. We are both HUGE animal lovers as well!
How was it to work with the cast of Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn?
Working on Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn was a lot of fun! It was a set full of energy and a bunch of amazing cast and crew.
My dream project would be to star in my own action movie where I get to perform a lot of stunts and have dramatic scenes. I want to be in a movie like Wonder Woman or Avatar! It would be such an honor to work along side JJ. Abrams or Steven Spielberg!
Any advice you can give to any aspiring young actors out there?
To aspiring young actors, I want to promote to never give up and have confidence when going into the audition. I have learned that you need to believe in yourself and know that you belong there. Be inspired and be creative. If the door doesn’t open, make your own door.
If you’re a book, what type of book are you and why?
If I was a book, I would be an adventure book. I find that I am never in the same place for very long. I have had amazing opportunities to travel with my acting and have had many incredible adventures along the way.
If you had the chance and opportunity to help a specific charity, what would it be and why?
If I was given a chance to help a specific charity, it would be a charity that supports the rescuing of animals. I would also love to support the make a wish foundation because I truly and passionately love their cause.
