Meet Rosa Pérez

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rosa Pérez.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Rosa. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I was born and raised in Barcelona with my older sister and my mother. I remembered watching a Julia Robert’s film. I saw her crying and I asked my mom if she was crying for real; I said: “poor girl mom”. She said she was crying but that she was an actress and that everything that was happening was fiction.

Well, since that day I found amazing so I went to practice and I used look in the mirror and try crying; I made it! I completely forgot about acting during my teenage years until I was 20. I felt empty in the inside, nothing was exciting enough to keep doing it everyday but acting was. The only thing that kept me entertained so far and fulfilled. I decided, to study a BFA and a MFA. I studied in Italy and did another year in Los Angeles. I’m grateful to be here.

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?
Believe me, if it would something easy to do, I would have already got tired of it. (laughs)
The hardest days it’s when you would like to share something either good or bad to your family and friends, best friends! And you can’t see their faces and make jokes and laugh and hug them and kiss them. You can’t do anything of that because you are far away and you are the only person who decided to go far from them. Then I realize that I can’t let my obstacles and my downs get into my path, instead, I try using it in my favor. I try seeing the bright side and make what’s being negative make it positive. Of course, there are days that I don’t want to get up but I do and I do what I have to do and I try my hardest to do the most I can because if not what’s the purpose of missing my family and friends?

Rosa Pérez – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I’m an actress. As many people come to Los Angeles looking for their dream. I never thought of myself being here. I just didn’t know what to do when I was 15. I’m always looking for the reality of it and if I don’t get what I want, I struggle until I get it. My relationship with my job is like a marriage: it’s a love-hate bond but a super tight bond. The perfect match. I have three film festivals coming up. I have a screening coming up at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood and a short film I was one of the leads is going to be soon in Amazon Prime. Still, I’m looking for the most accurate job. I love working with directors who are willing to get the most out of their story/character development. My job isn’t always as I wanted it because I’m just starting out, however when everything is working out, everything is great and I forget about everything that isn’t it.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
The first director I worked for that was the most legit job I got. Once the short was edited, he came to me and say “Thanks Rosa, you are my angel, you saved my film”. What can I say… I blushed. (laughs)
