Show Me Shorts Winner Nicole Gulasekharam

StarNow:
We noticed that your acting credits go back to when you were quite young! When did you decide you wanted to be an actor? And how did you first get into acting?

Nicole Gulasekharam:
It started when I won the role of Annie in ‘Annie’ the musical at the Regent Theatre when I was nine years old, which to this day I believe to be the biggest fluke! But that’s where I fell in love with the idea of playing different characters and people. So I started taking acting lessons, got a couple of jobs, and now I’m hooked!

StarNow:
Who is your agent? And how did you find them?

Nicole Gulasekharam:
I am currently with Ian White Management. I knew them through a course I did, and through friends.

StarNow:
Is it very different acting in a film than it is for TV? What advice would you give any budding StarNow actors?

Nicole Gulasekharam:
Both film and TV are lots of fun and really stimulating. With film, it’s great because you can take more time to work out your journey from start to finish before it begins. With TV, you may not necessarily know what’s going to happen to your character, which can also be exciting! My advice is to get as much training as possible, and of a wide variety. You don’t know if something will work for you unless you’ve tried it.
