Today we’d like to introduce you to Andreani Constanti.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
As a young girl, I was very shy. It was difficult for me to express my creativity with pride and glitz. Once I discovered performing everything changed. I was obsessed with the Beetlejuice and I even got a tattoo of Barbara on my leg. That was my initial connection with film and I was determined to train as hard as I could and make it to the screen. After years of heartbreak and devastating but necessary failures, I managed to leave my small country and try to live out my goals and dreams in the U.S.A. I am happy to say that I have reached a point in my career where I am surrounded by extraordinary people that encourage and enable my creativity to speak loudly and extravagantly.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It was not a smooth road by any means. I am somebody that always knew what I wanted to achieve but struggled with following through. I feel this is something that many people experience. It is difficult to get up and continue when you hear so many no’s. One of the biggest difficulties I faced was my own self-saboteur. I have been sober for 6 years. That part of my life was difficult to overcome. Many people talk about the consequences of addiction and substance abuse but there are no many talks about the aftermath of sobriety. I found it extremely difficult to reinvent myself and my creativity as a sober person. There is a different kind of work that goes into sustaining a healthy life and also constructing an environment in which you can feel free to explore and express yourself. Finding that balance was essential to me reaching a point of success in which I am at peace with myself and my work.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am an actress originally from Cyprus. I have been lucky to have worked with some incredible artists in Cyprus and the U.S.A. I am currently in an acting showcase that will happen in Zoom with The Actor’s Project NYC, I am also working on a film by Robert J. Harden that is currently in pre-production that will launch in film festivals and streaming services. I am very proud of the current and future collaborations I have in store.
We’d love to hear about any fond memories you have from when you were growing up?
I was kind of a weird kid, I enjoyed my alone time and painting on the walls and creating sketches and having fashion show. I remember I was amazed with snails. I used to gather snails and wash them in the sink cause I thought the slime they had on them was dirt and needed to be washed off. I would bathe them and feed them and then set them free. I later discovered that the slime is an essential factor of their survival so, yeah… oops! But I remember those moments fondly, they were my pets and I loved taking care of them. That is one strange but favorite childhood memory.
