French actress Anne Sophie Niego shares her thoughts on her transition into the world of acting in Hollywood

Please introduce yourself to the readers:

My name is Anne Sophie Niego and I am an actress originally from Paris, France. I moved to Los Angeles in 2011 to further my acting career.

How and when did you first get into performing?

I first got into performing at the age of 12. I was taking acting classes and a director who knew my teacher offered me a role in the play he was directing. It was at that moment that I knew that I wanted to be an actress, I think.
It was an amazing experience and since then, I've kept continuing with acting.

Who were some of your biggest inspirations?

There are so many! I can get inspired by painting, literature, photography, music. But in acting, one of my biggest inspirations was Patrice Chereau's work as a director in Theatre and Movies. Among a lot of actors, I was really inspired by Bette Davis, Marlon Brando, Isabelle Adjani, James Caan, Christopher Walken, Jack Nicholson, Daniel Day Lewis.

What kind have training have you done?

I started with ballet when I was 5 years old and went into acting at the age of 12. Besides the acting training I had in Paris ( Cours Florent, Studio 34), I also attended the Stella Adler Academy of Acting and Theatre, a two year conservatory in Los Angeles.

What has been your favorite role to play so far?

That's a hard question…I would say that 'Blanche' from Streetcar Named Desire was one of them. The most challenging one was 'Mary Windrod' from The Rimers of Eldricht: digging into the mind, the soul, the physicality of a woman of 80 years old was quite a challenge, but a passionate one.

What projects do you have coming up?

There are a few lined up. Right now I'm working on 'Suzanne' who is the lead role in the play 'The little black book' and soon I'm about to start shooting the feature 'Lost Breed'.

Who would be your ideal co-star and why?

Very hard to only pick one, there are so many….I would say Christian Bale, it's been a long time now that I have admired his work, his work has been very inspiring.

What are your plans for the future?

I want to keep working hard, and merging myself into passionate characters and projects.

What is your advice to other aspiring artists?

Don't give up, stay focused, work hard, and don't judge yourself.
