Interview: Kaitlin Doubleday

FFfe_23-kaitlin-gold_3224DJ2_hires1

The executives at FOX must really be enjoying the runaway success of its freshman drama Empire. The series debuted to almost 11 million viewers and over the first three weeks, the hip hop drama has increased in viewers and the all-important 18-49 demographic each week. The drama centers around a music mogul’s plans for the future of his empire as his three sons and his ex-wife battle each other to become the next heir apparent to the hip-hop throne.

One of the reasons for the success of the series is the work of actress Kaitlin Doubleday. The California native plays Rhonda Lyon, wife of the eldest son in the Lyon family who may be the one that is actually pulling all the strings.

Kaitlin sits down with the Pop Culture Principle to discuss her new role, why playing a strong, confident character was important to her and why it’s a good thing the people behind Empire tackle some of the biggest social issues today.

Interview: Elysia Rotaru

A91Q4781 copy (1)

In the world of film and television, it can sometimes be a competitive and difficult road to travel. Constant auditions, rejections and sometimes not knowing when your next job is going to be. You need to be a special breed of person in order to navigate those rough waters.

One up and coming actress who is definitely handling the rough waters and staying grounded is Canadian born actress Elysia Rotaru. She recently joined several friends and starred in the Crazy 8s film project Earthlickers, which recently premiered at the Whistler Film Festival. The film is about a barren post-apocalyptic future, where seven sexy Goddesses (X,T,C,O,R,G,Y) of the Merkabatron descend upon a wretched Earth to convey the message that the Vibration of Love can heal all. Now, the movie may sound a bit out there, but it does have a serious message that the filmmakers want you to understand.

In steps Netflix, who picked the series up for a six episode final fourth season to close out the story for its devoted fans.

99982135_640

Every once in a while a show comes along that not only entertains you, but makes a statement. A show that combines all the elements of a great television series, but at the same time tackles issues and subjects that are not only important, but relevant. ABC Family has such a show on its network, The Fosters.

Currently in its second season, the show has become a favorite with not only fans and critics, but has also become an important beacon for race relations, the LGBT community and has also changed our idea of what a “family” is today. The series will be airing its Christmas episode on Monday, December 8th 8/7c. One of the reasons the show is such a success is the work of actress Sherri Saum who plays Lena Adams Foster.

We sit down to talk with the talented actress about the importance of the series, how having twins has changed the way she sees her character and the show and what the fans mean to her, the cast and crew.
