Lindsay Lamb should be on you radar. An actress as versatile as her is bound for stardom and one of our favorites. CelebMix sat down with Lindsay to talk about her inspirations, her dream roles, and her latest projects.
1) What drew you to acting?
I think the concept of being celebrated for being different and a bit weird is what initially drew me in and is why I’ve stuck with it for more than ten years. I always loved putting on shows, so the fact that I could do that every day and potentially support myself doing it was a no-brainer for me.
2) You’ve done theater and film. Which do you prefer and why?
They are very similar in the sense that they are both forms of storytelling but so different as a performer. I love film for so many reasons: being part of the process of the script to screen, being on set and watching all the moving parts come together and, of course, it’s nice to know that re-dos are allowed. But there is something about being on stage in front of a live audience that is almost unexplainable. It’s such a rush. I guess the perfect hybrid would be performing on a TV show with a live studio audience.
3) Any particular theater dream roles?
I’m a big fan of musicals, although I’m not exactly what you would call a “singer,” if you know what I mean. As far as straight theater goes I would LOVE to play ‘May’ in Sam Shepard’s Fool for Love. Really anything Sam Shepard wrote would be a dream for me!
4) Tell us about your upcoming film “Apple Of My Eye”.
“Apple of My Eye” centers around a young girl who is in a horseback riding accident and loses her sight. She’s not much of a “dog person,” so the ever-so-charming Burt Reynolds trains a mini horse to be her seeing eye companion. I play Jenny, her Braille tutor. Filming “Apple of My Eye” was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had. I learned so much and met so many incredible people. Sony Entertainment will be releasing the film on January 10, 2017 and I can’t wait to see it completed!
5) What is your favorite genre of film to act in and to watch?
My favorite genre to watch is psychological thrillers. I’m obsessed with the human psyche and I love a good film that makes me think and try to track clues as it progresses. My favorite genre to act in would probably be comedies.
6) What upcoming projects would you like our readers to know about?
“Blue Line” is the first film that I booked after graduating from USC and is being released by Lionsgate in March 2017. It’s a project I hold very close to my heart. It was kind of like a “yes, I’m doing this! I’m a professional actress” moment when I was offered the role, so I’m really looking forward to seeing it and reflecting on what I’ve accomplished since then.
