My Interview With Seed Star Carrie Lynn Neales

Image

A certified Yoga Instructor and actress Carrie Lynn Neales, originally from Toronto, Ontario and currently resides in Los Angeles. She has found herself acting in a comedy show called Seed. Seed has been airing since September 2012 and it airs on City at 9pm every Thursday so that you can catch her on TV.

 

You can see interview with Carrie Lynn below:

Carolyn: When did you discover yourself being an actress?

Carrie Lynn: I think I always knew I wanted to be an actress. I grew up dancing so being on stage felt natural. In public school I was in plays and little talent show skits. But I think it was in high school that I started to realize it could be a career so thats when I knew it was going to be what I did for the rest of my life

Image

Carolyn: What is the first show you ever played?

Carrie Lynn:Professionally? I was Juliet in a production of Romeo and Juliet with The Classical Theatre Project in Toronto.

Carolyn: How do you feel when working on set?

Carrie Lynn: When I’m on set I look at it as an opportunity to play. I love the energy on set. I love how many people and how much time it takes to really nail a scene, the energy of all of those people coming together with one common goal. It’s a place to throw away all of the work you’ve done on the scene and the character, Just play, learn and experience. Feels incredible.

Carolyn: How long have you been working on Seed?

Carrie Lynn: I booked Rose on Seed in September of 2012. We started shooting the first season very soon after that. We’ve shot 2 seasons so far and are in the middle of airing the second season on City at 9pm on Thursdays.

Carolyn: How would you describe your acting style?

Carrie Lynn: I’m not sure that I have an acting style. I do my work, show up, look at the person in the scene with me and play.

Carolyn: Which actor or actress do you really find inspiring and why?

Carrie Lynn: Meryl Streep is the obvious choice for so many reasons. I grew up watching her work. I find her so unique and surprising, even after countless films. I like that she takes chances and takes on roles that challenge her. She has had such a long and incredible career. She also took her time with her career. Slow and steady while keeping her eyes on the prize. I’m sure there are so many others that inspires me. But it has been Meryl for me for as long as I can remember.

Carolyn: So I hear you were nominated a few times for best actress and what show were you nominated for?

Carrie Lynn: I was nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award and a Canadian Screen Award, both for leading actress in a comedy and Seed.

Carolyn: What famous stars have you worked with, or want to work with?

Carrie Lynn: At the risk of sounding entirely pretentious I’m going to say it is not about fame for me. I want to work with actors at any stages of their careers who work hard, challenge me, take me on a ride the way I hope to do for them, and enjoy the craft as much as I do. That said, it would be a career highlight to work with Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Judi Dench and Dustin Hoffman.

Carolyn: I understand you are also a yoga instructor ? How do you connect with those people?

Carrie Lynn: I am certified to teach yoga, however time lately hasn’t allowed much of an opportunity to teach anymore. Teaching yoga has been such an enlightening experience for me. To teach anything is, I believe, the greatest path to self-growth. It is in itself is a learning experience like no other. I learned as much from each of my students about the practice of yoga and my own personal journey as I hope they learned from me.

Carolyn: In your spare time, what do you like to do beside acting?

Carrie Lynn: I am an incredibly active person! I need to be physical in some way. I hike every day and practice yoga. I cook a lot. I like to try new recipes and cook for people. I also really enjoy spending time alone writing, reading, or being creative in any way. I love going on road trips with friends and spending time by mountains and water. I have a very small group of close friends and I always enjoy spending time with them.

Once again, you can catch Carrie Lynn on Seed every Thursday On City at 9pm and also you can read more about her at http://www.carrielynnneales.com/ and watch some of her video clips!
