Today we’d like to introduce you to Chloe Farnworth.
Chloe, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
It all started when I was a child, I was homeschooled and I can remember every day just making up stories and pretending to be different people, I would give them different names, accents and character traits, and I think this is when I fell in love with telling stories and bringing characters to life.
As I got older, I asked my parents if I could go to theater classes and this soon turned into my passion and pretty much knew acting was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
I moved out at 16 to study Drama and Dance and at 18 years old, I moved to London and went to Drama School at The Royal Academy of Speech and Drama.
My passion for telling stories has brought me to Los Angeles which is now where I’m based.
Has it been a smooth road?
I think one of the things I find challenging is, I don’t have a lot of patience, I always want things to happen right away, and in the entertainment industry, there is a lot of waiting around. But I have got much better about this and sometimes its best to hold tight and wait.
Advice for starting out, Work as hard as you can. Put more than 100% in. Don’t be on time, be early, early is on time and on time is late. and if it doesn’t make you happy and doesn’t give you a rush of excitement, even if it’s scary excitement don’t do it!
Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I’m a British actress, I work in TV, Film, and Commercials. I’ve always found myself auditioning and working in independent cinema which I absolutely love, I have a big passion for the independent film industry and bringing the small stories to the big screens for everyone to see.
I think it’s really important to educate and leave a lasting impact on the audience and with Independent films, you are free from the restraints of the big box office hits which allows indie films to convey a stronger message and for the filmmakers to express themselves freely.
So, I’m a big supporter of independent cinema!
My most recent projects coming out this year are 12 Hour Shift directed by Brea Grant, I played the role of Rgina co-lead alongside Angela Bettis and David Arquette.
The film is a dark Horror-Comedy about a group of nurses stealing organs and selling them on the black market.
And I recently wrapped a TV Series called Departure directed by TJ Scott and stars Christopher Plummer which will air later this year.
What advice would you give to someone at the start of her career?
I would say, work as hard as you can, don’t have a Plan B, Just go all the way for Plan A.
(Although a lot of people will tell you to have a Plan B, in case it doesn’t work out. but I’m a strong believer in putting everything into one thing.)
Be strong and know what you want. Aim high, and always keep moving forward.
