Actor Scoop! ~ Interview with Alexa Jansson

A few weeks ago, I reviewed the wonderful movie, Fragile World. Today, I’m interviewing its lead actress, Chloe ‘Alexa Jansson’ Russell. Follow our chat below and learn more about this lovely lady! Miranda ~ Hello Alexa! Delighted to have you here at TBAP. Could you please tell us a bit about yourself? Chloe Alexa ~ Delighted to get your invite!  I’m an actress from Ohio, living in Los Angeles. I’ve been acting professionally since 2003.  Besides acting, I love animals, music, and dancing.  I’ve been eating vegan for the past 9 months.  I see it as a ‘thank you’ to all the animals who’ve supported my health so far. I also don’t want to support some of the cruel factory farm practices.  I’m not saying all farms are cruel.  I had ACL reconstruction of my knee in April from a dancing injury.  All the new muscle I’ve built since my surgery has been from plant-based protein. I’m kinda proud of that.  I also like to make sculpture.  Lately, I’ve been making large, sculptural birthday cakes with …

Album Review ~ Be One by Natalie Grant

Album Cover Genre Pop/Rock Category Christian Rating 4.5 Stars Review Joyful. Soulful. Entertaining…are what I’ll call Be One by Natalie Grant. Starting with the upbeat song, Be One, the one by which the album is titled, and also a song which I thoroughly enjoyed because it blessed my heart, it reminded me that I don’t always have to wait for a miracle, but step out for Jesus with all my heart, hands and feet to do something for the Kingdom! My favorite number, however, was track #4: Love Has Won—a true testimony of God’s unfailing love available for the weary, weak, and wounded. Need I mention Symphonies, a song with lyrics so full of praise and love for our God? (I just did!) The instrumentals of Symphonies was simply amazing, especially the sound of the violins (and other stringed instruments). I loved it! While the collective rhythm is mostly upbeat, fun/funky pop, entertaining, and so, endearing, this album is so much more. For me, the lyrics were a sweet reminder of God’s promises and a …

Chatting Moments With Actress, Jenn Gotzon!

I always admire people who have a deep passion for using their talent for God, and are not afraid to show it! Jenn Gotzon is one of such. I saw that passion shine through in the silent movie, the The Good Book by Faith Flix Films (You can read my review of that wonderful movie here). We connected on twitter, and Jenn was gracious to let me interview her on TBAP. In reading her answers, I hope you get to appreciate her boldness and the lovely person that she is! So folks, I introduce to you Jenn Gotzon—first time on TBAP! Enjoy! Miranda ~ Hello Jenn! Delighted to have you here on TBAP! Could you please tell us a bit about yourself? Jenn: Thanks so much for having me on. Well, I’m just a girl pursuing a call in my life, which is to inspire and impact audiences through the roles I play in the movies. I believe we live in a society where bad is bold, and to create positive change, good must be bolder. That is …
