Interview with Rosslyn Roberson

By Dag (2005-12-06)

We've talked to Rosslyn Roberson about here role as Cassie in Hallowed.

Q: Can you tell us a bit about your role in the movie?

Rosslyn: My character in the film is Cassie, who is a young college student. While she is innocent and naïve, she is very optimistic to see the best in people like Gabriel.

Q: What do you like about your character?

Rosslyn: My character was easy to relate to since Cassie is your typical beachy college student with a fun personality. Also, much of her dialogue is quite witty thanks to Rocky.

Q: Can you share some memorable experiences from the set?

Rosslyn: Absolutely! Rocky and everyone involved in the film was amazing to work with and always open to suggestions. One of my favorite scenes was the one i filmed with my stepsister. In our family, we are notorious for re-enacting scenes from our favorite comedies, so when it came time to do our own scene we couldn't help but laugh just by looking at each other.

Q: This has been your feature film debut. Was it how you expected it would be?

Rosslyn: Honestly, I had no idea what to expect. The challenge of this film was perfect for me, as I was able to have fun while we were filming.

Q: How did you first become interested in acting?

Rosslyn: I have always loved performing in dance, cheer, choir, and orchestra, but I never had much interest in taking drama/theatre courses.  I was much more interested in music. When I had some pictures taken, they were given to a talent agency who set me up with the audition, very randomly. I honestly thought my mom was joking when she told me to drive home from santa Barbara for this audition. After that audition, I instantly got excited about acting.

Q: Do you ever get nervous in front of the camera?

Rosslyn: Not really. This may be because I grew up with my dad constantly videotaping me talking, singing, whatever. I think it depends on how confident you are about yourself. I tried to put myself in Cassie's shoes and be as natural as possible. Besides, who doesn't like the attention?!

Q: Can you tell us a bit about who Rosslyn Roberson is when not acting?

Rosslyn: This is my 3rd year as a full-time student at the University of California, Santa Barbara with a major in Communications and minor in Health Science and Nutrition. I live in my sorority house, pi beta phi with 42 girls which can get crazy, but such a blast! When I'm not pulling all-nighters, I go for runs on the beach or take a yoga/pilates class.

Q: Plans for the future? More acting or do you want to focus on other things?

Rosslyn: When I graduate, I am hoping to move to the LA area so that I can get a job in the entertainment industry, and also be close to my family in Orange County. I became familiar with the area this past summer when I lived with a girlfriend in LA while I did an internship and worked in a restaurant. Being in LA will provide me with endless opportunities at my fingertips, so any direction in the entertainment industry is possible.
