Meet Celine Alva

Today we’d like to introduce you to Celine Alva.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Celine. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I was really shy and timid growing up and wouldn’t really speak so my teachers pushed me to audition for theatre to get me out of my shell. I honestly had no idea what I was doing or how that choice changed my life and who I am completely. Theatre and Film not only became my escape but my therapy. The stage and set taught me how to express myself and gain confidence. I fell in love with telling stories and the art of it all. Today I thank my teachers every day for shaping me into the person I now am. I’ve done several commercials and films and I wouldn’t want my life any other way.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Being an actor comes with several challenges. You need to learn to accept rejection because you won’t always get picked. Acting is also a collaboration, so not only do you need to be satisfied with your work but so does the director and the audience, that type of pressure can really get to you. You will fall 100 times but it’s up to you to get back up 101 times.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I am an actor but in my eyes, I see it more as storytelling. I am most proud of my persistence and dedication to acting. I always try to expand my learning on different techniques and methods of acting and I never let myself settle. What I would say sets me apart from others is my ability to fall in love with the character. I believe that to really act, you can’t act at all. It’s a state of being, becoming the character and being self-conscience enough to use all the techniques of acting you have learned to tie the character together. This way of acting, I believe sets me apart from a lot of other actors.
