Kara Lane Brisbane Actor

What was your headshot session like?

Perfect as always! 

Sheona radiates such a warm and inviting energy that’ll make even the most nervous feel calm and confident.

Where are you currently studying? 

Currently awaiting the next NIDA intake

Where did you study?

I’ve studied primarily at the warehouse workshop. But will occasionally pick up additional courses at various institutes that are offering workshops in areas I need help in.

If you chose between doing a big film or a small film, which would you choose and why?

I would choose a big film, as it would mean a bigger budget, which in turn means greater set designs, locations and character personification.

What is your favourite type of role to play? Why?

I’m happy to play any role if it’s in the sci-fi genre.

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve been given?

When reading a script for an audition and little information is provided on the character, it’s great to create a backstory as it’ll help you create a more 3D performance, opposed to one which lacks energy and flavour.

If you could travel back in time to meet anyone (living or dead) who would it be and why?

I would travel back to meet my younger self and tell her not to get her hopes up lol

What’s the most interesting role you’ve had?

I played an alien species in a student film.

What’s the most interesting workshop you’ve attended?

Anything with Phil Holder is sure to be interesting and rewarding.

Who is your agent?

Howell management

Do you work in TV, film, theatre or all three?

Tv and film

What do you like about acting the most?

The escape of monotony

When did you start acting? What got you started?

I started when I was 16.
I got a small supporting role in an independent short film.
My mum slept in the car as I was on set for 14 hours.

What is your strength as an actor?

I think I bring a natural, organic performance.

Describe your most challenging role to date and why was it challenging?

My most challenging role would be having to play death.
It was the first time I noticed difficulty in translating how I wanted a sentence to sound

What is your dream role? Why?

My dream role would be the play the lead in my favourite book, ‘welcome to purgatory.’ As the world that was created is fascinating and developed.

Who do you most admire? Why?

I most admire my partner, who is kind and generous and understanding.
Who has never once patronised me for perusing such a heart breaking career, and instead would move to the other side of the world for me in a heartbeat, if I so required.

If you had a magic wand, what would you do next?

Bring my dog back from the dead :-(
