I have had the amazing privilege to interview young starlet, Ali Skovbye! You may have seen her on R.L. Styne’s The Haunting Hour, Falling Skies, Once Upon A Time, and many other shows.
What inspired you to start acting?
I started acting because my sister was acting at the time and I wanted to follow in her footsteps.
What was your favorite acting experience?
filming Once Upon A Time
What did it take to start acting?
I started just doing commercials and then I took some acting classes and started in film and tv.
How old were you when you discovered that you wanted to act?
four years old
How does acting work into your life with school and everything else?
Sometimes it can get really busy, but there is usually a tutor on set so that helps with the schooling .
If there was a movie about your life so far and you couldn’t perform as yourself, who would you choose to be you in the film?
What makes you happy?
I first knew of you from watching my all-time favorite show, Once Upon A Time. What was your experience like on that show?
It was so much fun to shoot that show . The costumes we got to wear were really cool , and so was the makeup. I couldn’t even recognize Lana (Lana Parrilla – The Evil Queen/Regina Mills) because she was dressed like an old witch for the market scene. Also Sebastian Stan was super nice and so was Henry (Jared Gilmore).
…and who of the OUAT cast did you like working with the best?
Henry ( he had his pet guinea pig with him on set ). I also really like Lana.
Who inspires you?
If you could act with any other actor or actress who would you choose?
What other hobbies do you like to do?
I like to sing, play volleyball , bike and roller-blade .
What would you tell aspiring actresses/actors for advice?
It takes a lot of hard work and perseverance . You gotta not get disappointed along the way and just keep your head up and keep going. Acting / theater classes are good too.
What would you like to see happen for you and your career in the future?
I would like to book some lead roles in some good movies. I’ve got two projects I’m working on that are really tough roles. I’m hoping they will go my way , because I could learn a lot from the roles.
