had the pleasure to meet this wonderful actress at one of the industry
mixers last November. Ms. Prescott was kind enough to answer numerous
questions about her career and we are thrilled to talk to her on a
personal level about her life. Ms.
Prescott can be seen in various commercials (both local and national),
television, films and theatre in the Houston area. Currently, Ms.
Andrea Prescott is under the Pastorini-Bosby Talent Agency and will be
an extra in Terrence Malik’s “Tree of Life” with Brad Pitt and
Sean Penn. We are please to introduce you to Ms. Andrea Prescott:
C-47: Andrea, How did you get into acting as a
Ms. Prescott: I
got into acting because I always knew that I had a passion for it, and
that entertaining people and sharing the love of acting with others
made my heart content. I believe in the old saying, “Love your work and
you will never have to work a day in your life." Transitioning
NOW is more important than looking back at my life and wishing I would
have done it. I know that now matter what happens, acting is a love
that no one can take away from me.
C-47: What is your
style of acting?
Ms. Prescott: I
strive to bring something new to every role I play. I try not to
repeat the thoughts of another character, but try to add to it or
bring a past experience into it. I love to feel what a character
I try to bring the emotional truth to the surface. I challenge myself
with different emotions and try tobring out different characters
depending on the background of the role. I slip right into character
and immerse myself into the personality of the character before the
camera rolls. This can be draining.
C-47: How do you
bounce back from the emotional coaster?
Well, on the set I try to relax by closing my eyes while massaging my
face and head in between takes, but after a scene I can bounce back
within 5 minutes. I try to focus on the choice I made in the scene and
what I could have done differently to improve myself. I think about
what is “real”, and by doing that, I can snap out of the emotional
state of the character.
C-47: Any advice to
newbies to Acting?
Act only if you love it. Don’t act to get famous. Don’t worry
about what people think about you and your choices, it will only take
away from you game.
