Meet “Becca”, one of our quirky supporting characters in 13 Miles, played by Naomi Levi, (IMDB).
We had a chance to ask Naomi some questions about herself and her role in 13 Miles.
What is it about your role in 13 Miles that you are excited about?
I'm excited to be working with friends, who I've seen working so hard pursuing their dreams and passions. I've been involved in some capacity since he beginning of their journey and I am so happy to be a small part of the fruits of their labour.
Who is "Becca"?
Becca is that person that everyone needs when starting a terrifying new endeavour. She quells the fear eating you up inside by letting you know that it's ok to be scared or find it hard...with the perfect amount of sarcasm and sass thrown in.
How do you relate to her?
Did I mention the sarcasm and sass...see above
What types of things are you doing to prepare you for this role?
Drinking wine and running! Just kidding, that would be dangerous folks. So I'm drinking wine and running...just not at the same time.
What do you love most about being an actor?
Being an actor lets me see the world from another person's perspective. Each character is presented with a unique set of problems followed by a solution. I find I'm more compassionate with the people in my life with each character I'm privileged to play.
List 5 fun facts about yourself.
- I do a pretty mean Mr. Bean impression.
- I got stung by a jellyfish in Australia, then stepped on a jellyfish (stinging me again) as I ran up the beach for assistance.
- One of my hobbies is refinishing vintage furniture.
- I call several animals best friends... and I know the feeling is mutual.
- I bought a ukulele but can't figure out how to tune it, but I can play a mean off-key rendition of Nirvana's "Come As You Are"
What question(s) have we not asked you that you wish we had?
What are my opinions on current American politics…
Thank you Naomi!
Filming with Becca begins February 26.
