Lights, Camera, Action
When I asked to interview Heather Rich, I had no idea that she is a somewhat seasoned actress that is very compelling while at work.
Heather Rich has come up against many obstacles that she has overcome, but has shattered stereotypes along the way. She grew up in a single parent household in which she is 1 of 4. Her mother always worked 3 jobs to care for the family and battled stage 4 cancer. Can you imagine the responsibilities that came along with that as a young child? Still Heather persevered.
I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Heather began exploring theater while in the 5th grade and won the lead role as Peter Pan! Her determination has lead her to act in at least 8 roles, the most current role as “Lyric” of the stage play and movie “Jason’s Lyric; In addition she is also seen in the YouTube series “Upstairs” Episode 102 around mark 06:20. The role is charming, romantic and we get to see her act vulnerably as well. I couldn’t stop smiling.
Heather so graciously answered my interview questions:
Q1: How do you prepare for roles:
A: I turn all of my lines into a song; for character development I study the person I am assigned to emulate their voice, movement and style.
Q2: What kind of actor would you describe yourself as:
A: Well rounded, emotional
Q3: Is the competition for roles high in Ohio?
A: Very high, competition is good, makes a person better, and want to work harder.
Heather does not currently have an agent but is open to representation.
