Krystal Moment From StudvilleTV
1.How did you get started acting with StudvilleTV and what all have you acted in?
I actually started by just being friends with the creator/producer we had been friends for quite sometime and I was at a party with her and a few more of the cast members and I remember telling her drunkenly that if she needed me for some scenes that I was available. Of course I was joking because I was more than sure that she had a full cast with more than enough fans willing to jump in and be any extra she may have wanted. But sure enough the next season casting call rolled around and she asked me to come and audition, I did and the rest is history.
I have also acted in one full feature (Studzmen) two reality shows (Married to medicine, and Panic Button) a couple web series (Between Women & StudvilleTV) and few upcoming projects as well.
2. Have you produced or directed any films or web series? If so what?
I have directed and produced a web series called Mainstream Flawed. A story based around the writer and creator of the project. We shot the whole season but for personal reasons the writer decided to follow other dreams. The first few episodes can be found on YouTube.
As for films I am in the process of writing my first full feature film and shooting my second short film written by myself both ironically in reference to the LGBT lifestyle and the many issues that are not really brought to the attention of the public.
3. Do you plan on making acting a career? What do you do for a living?
I would love to make acting a career but unfortunately to me the industry is over saturated with my type of actress so for me it doesn’t feel as realistic or as lucrative as a career goal as some others may feel. I love doing it though I get a high being in front of a camera as well as a awesome feeling of nervousness that Im still trying to overcome. lol SO right now I am a data entry, bartending, serving, photographer who dips and dabs in creating films and projects for my community, open to most roles including but not limited to anything different and behind the scenes.
4. How old are you?
I am tapping on the 30 door.
5. When is your birthday? What is your horoscope sign?
I actually share a birthday with Aaliyah I was born on the 16th of January. My sign is a Capricorn.
6. Where are you originally from? What are your hobbies?
I’m originally from Chicago but I’ve lived a large amount of my life in Cali and Guam as well. My hobbies include doing nails, make up, and hair (silly I know) I also enjoy nature photography, and traveling.
7. What is your favorite foods?
I enjoy Hispanic foods. More specifically tacos. I can low-key be bribed with tacos. I love Indian food and some Chinese.
8. What is your favorite song out on the radio right now?
My favorite song on the radio right now is Drake – Controlla
9. Who is your favorite music artist right now?
I almost hate to say it because it feels super basic but I really love Beyonce. Her growth in her music is everything. She is the ultimate music artist to me. No one compares.
10. Do you have a favorite LGBT web series?
StudvilleTV of course! lol.
11. Who is your favorite actor in a LGBT web series (if any)?
I honestly think Ameer Jewel is an outstanding actress. She’s a pretty cool person too, love her spirit. Oh! and Toni Fields… her growth in acting is inspiring and she’s pretty damn dreamy too.
12. Are you single or taken?
I am happily taken.
13. What do you like in your significant other?
I love her ambition, the way she carries herself, the fact that she is strong and beautiful, shes never really complacent, she pushes and encourages me to want more and to do better.
14. Can we watch you in any other web series or films coming soon?
You can catch me in the upcoming season of StudvilleTV probably as the ghost of Studville’s past or something lol.
15. Anything else you would like to add?
I wanna make sure that people are encouraged to follow their dreams no matter what they are and no matter how dumb they may seem inside of your head. Everybody has a propose in this world to inspire each other in one way of another. Don’t miss your calling to do something amazing by psyching yourself out. You are great in your own way and nobody but you can take that away. Oh! and when someone asks you to be apart of something no matter how small it is, if its in the field you are interested in go for it, the biggest and hardest part is just getting your foot in the door and staying focused.
