Indie Activity dove deep into Nana's acting career and her tips for other aspiring actors.

indieactivity: When did you decide to study acting or something like that?
Nana: I think I decided to be an artist, not necessarily an actor very young. Since I was 9 years old I knew I loved to perform, mainly dance and sing. I started dancing flamenco at 9 years old, later I learned music, played some guitar and keyboards, and cuatro – a Venezuelan 4 string instrument-. I also did gymnastics, which I loved too. But I decided to formally purse acting about 10 years ago after resigning to the business world and after attending a basic acting weekend workshop just to relax and have some fun. Those classes sent me right back to my teenage years of art and joy. I also came to the US to do some acting workshops in New York and LA. I studied in LA at Carolyne Barry Entertainment with teachers like Joshua Bitton, Anil Kumar, and Donovan Scott. In New York I studied with the brilliant Susan Batson, personal acting coach to Juliette Binoche, Nicole Kidman and many others. After the work I did in Venezuela as an actress, I decided to come to New York 5 years ago to study acting at Stella Adler Studio of Acting. Today my acting coach is the writer, director, actor, singer and producer Marishka S. Phillips.
