Where are you originally from and where are you currently located?
Cara AnnMarie – A: I was born in San Diego, CA. – but grew up in Chelsea, MI. Currently, I’m a bit of a nomad – traveling for work and sunshine. I’m in LA at the moment – but we live the Summer / Fall months outside of Detroit, MI, and often in Atlanta for work (I love it there too) .
Q: Cara, you are a multi-dimensional Actress, Singer, and Entrepreneur. Rising in the film industry, what inspires you to best at your profession and Do you have a top 3 selection of favorite actors, filmmakers or directors that you admire and want to work within the business?
Cara AnnMarie – A: I’m very inspired by other actors and storytellers – watching their connections and performances on film, tv, and stage. Being surprised by someone’s performance is so exciting – It motivates me to work harder to build a larger body of work and bring different stories to life with my own interpretation.
This is a hard one – there are some really incredible people working in this industry. I’m a huge fan of Catherine O’Hara – she is such an incredible comedian and actor. And is so transforming for every role yet they’re always 100% genuine and relatable.
The Duplass brothers would be very cool to work with – I love everything they are making – in front and behind the camera. They’re wonderful storytellers and capture a quirky side of humans. It would be cool to see how they make their magic.
I also am a huge fan of Actress Helen McCory, who sadly passed away in 2021 – but left a beautiful legacy of powerful performances. Her strength in every role was breathtaking. And I admire her work greatly.
Q: You are known for your roles in Cobra Kai on Netflix and Comedy Central’s – Detroiters. As an actress, what would you say is your fav genre in roles you play ( Drama, Comedy, Action, a little bit of all)?
Cara AnnMarie – A: I am back in the most recent Season 4 of Cobra Kai on Netflix – which is an incredible gift. I really do love comedy. It’s fun to just play and often improv a bit in the scenes. But there’s frequently a lot of drama within comedy – so I think a mix is a nice balance. Which Cobra Kai has.
Q: Share with us something people may not know about you . What hobbies or other secret talents you have and or like to do in your spare time aside from filmmaking ?
Cara AnnMarie – A:I’ve recently gotten back into Voice (Singing) Lessons and actually have an Opera Degree from the University of Michigan. I would be thrilled to get more singing and dancing going in my upcoming work.
I also love spending time traveling with my husband, our 1-Year-old son, and pup – sometimes while I’m working (for a specific project) and in our free time.
Q: Do you have any new or recently finished projects that you can share with us?
Cara AnnMarie – A: I’ve recently wrapped on a new Netflix show called Florida Man (coming out in 2022) – I’ll be playing a Doctor. It was such a high point to work on this show with two incredibly brilliant directors, Julian Farino and Haifaa Al-Mansour. And playing a Doctor is very a cool role in my opinion.
I also worked on an amazing period Feature Film called The Battle of Bushy Run. The film takes place in 1763 and I had the privilege of portraying a real woman, Regina Leininger, with an amazing story.
