Honey Lauren -A: Thank you for your kind words. I love working and collaborating with other artists. Years ago, I befriended, the wonderful actor, Harvey Kietel. I’ll never forget what he said to me… I had just booked a film that was rather low budget and he said, “Always, always do your very best work for every part in every project you take., Take it seriously no matter the budget. You never know who’s going to see it”. I loved that. It always stayed with me. And it motivated me.
Directors and actors I’d love to work with… I love director Abel Ferrara and have had the opportunity to meet / work with him before. Todd Haynes is so magnificent. Paul Thomas Anderson, I adore. Actors… I love Christopher Walken, whom I’ve spent time with, of course, Harvey Kietel, you can see I’m old-school here, and of course, my love child, Benedict Cumberbatch.
Q: You have an amazing Hollywood startlet energy and look ! As an actress, what would you say is your fav genre in roles you play( Drama, Comedy,Action, a little bit of all) ?
Honey Lauren -A: Ha! Well of course I love them all. That said, I really enjoy doing character driven pieces with a director that has a vision. I am definitely one of those actors that love to be directed. With that, I also love the freedom to explore and I know we often don’t have time for rehearsals, so I’m truly in heaven when I can feel comfortable to deliver a performance where I lack any self-consciousness. I love comedy, I have to say it and I work to find the humor even in the darkest of roles.

It’s finished and will be out soon. I also, prior to the pandemic could be found in the ballet studio several times a week. We do outdoors ballet now.
