Francesca says that when she stands in front of camera, every fiber of her being comes to life. She is driven by the challenge of bringing to life a character from script. It is a creative journey unlike any other and one she relishes. The world needs actors and storytellers now more than ever. It is about transforming the viewer into a different world , allowing them to escape and have relief from real life , to explore elements of their being they may not have otherwise done. Film and Television can be highly therapeutic not just for the viewer but for the actor too. As the viewer explores themselves, so do we as actors. However the life of an actor is not just about doing your best acting work and going to classes, it about being driven by your passion, putting in the work , being creative and goal setting, believing in yourself and trusting in the Universe or God. It is in achieving balance, love and harmony within yourself and your outside world and embracing all that you are.
