Amelia Mann is a high school teen who divides her time between school, dance, and film acting. Her film credits include Flowers for Fannie, Season of Miracles, The Good Book, and The Gospel Writers’ Autographs.
What was your first film role? The first film I did was Calling all Zeros.
What faith-based films have you been involved in? The faith based films I have done have been Flowers for Fannie, Season of Miracles, The Good Book, and The Gospel Writer’s Autographs.
What was it like playing a teen mom in The Good Book? Playing a teen mom was really hard because it brought back many memories about what I was told about my being adopted. I really felt I did connect with the role, although my birth mom was not a teen, but I know what it is like to be adopted to a good family that loves you and cares what happens to you and tries to give you a good life.
What is your favorite aspect of film acting? What I like about film acting is that you can be many different characters and have many different dialogues and scenes. Also, at times we get to travel to other locations.
What would be your dream acting role? My dream role would be getting to be the voice of Winnie the Pooh, because if you really know me, you know I love my Pooh Bear and still sleep with him at night.
What do you do when you’re not acting? When I am not acting, I am in dance classes. I dance 4 nights a week. I am in dance troupe, and Dance Company. I also am an assistant teacher in a little ballet class at my studio.
What are your plans for the future? I plan on going to WKU and majoring in Dance and minor in Theatre/Acting. I hope it is more acting/film but don’t know if they do anything other than musical theatre there. I want to improve my acting and dancing.
Anything else? I hope you write many more movies that we have a chance to do because I really enjoyed working with you.
