Jennifer Cheon Garcia
Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from? What inspired you to become an actress? What projects are you currently working on?
I’m from what used to be a small town just outside of Vancouver, Canada. I grew up on a horse farm, singing and dancing. I got into modelling and then made my transition into acting after high school. I always loved story telling through the medium of film and television. I was a bit of a loner (still am lol), so getting lost in the world of film and television was my happy place. I’m currently working on developing a film I’m writing. Also, I am playing the role of the Leader of the Sisterhood in Syfy/ Netfix’s Van Helsing.
What’s the most challenging thing about this industry you`re in?
What do you like doing in your spare time?
I have a dog, so hiking with him is one of my favorite things to do. Also, Taekwondo. I’m going for my black belt in May.
If you could play in a movie with any celebrity (dead or alive) who would that be, and why?
Nicole Kidman. I really respect her work. I would love to work / just watch her process.
What`s your favorite movie of all time?
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
People that don’t say thank you after you hold the door open for them.
What’s the most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this week?
I read that people with a dark sense of humor may be more intelligent and emotionally stable.
How would someone get your special attention?
By not taking themselves too seriously. Someone that likes to make jokes and laugh.
What would be a good theme song for your life?
You Can’t Always Get What You Want – The Rolling Stones
What would you like to be remembered by?
I just really hope to be remembered! And that the loved ones I leave will smile when they think of me.
If you could give any piece of advice to our aspiring actors, what would that be?
Trust your gut. And if you don’t, don’t let anybody know that.
