We caught up with Anneka Naylor for our latest MODEL Q&A!
Favourite song to sing at Karaoke?
What's your biggest talent? (besides being a great actor, obviously!)
Probably my cooking skills - after I moved here from the states I missed a lot of specific foods - so I started doing pop up food nights under the name State Side!
How would your friends describe you in 3 words?
Magnanimous - Impish - Brazen - (my friends have a great vocabulary)
Best advice / tip to aspiring actors?
Write and make your own content! Don’t wait for the gatekeepers to decide when you get to be what you are - if you’re truly an actor you don’t need to say aspiring - actively be an actor - shoot stuff put up shows, be.
What has been your favourite acting job to date?
I have had some pretty incredible experiences on different sets in Hollywood- but I think the most all encompassing was for Wedding Band (Amazon Prime). I got to do my two favourite things - be funny and be musical (I was trained to be a drummer for the show!).
Who's your guilty crush?!
Emily Blunt - without a hint of guilt! There’s an alternate timeline where I got the part of Jim on the American Office (which I auditioned for) and she never met John Krazsinski :)
Best thing about being represented by Face?
The SUPPORT oh my god - never had it so good. Feel uplifted every time I send a self tape! I had the best manager in LA for comedy - (everyone who came up with me in that office is mega famous now.) They had all the clout but I had to constantly remind them what I could do - Once my manager said “But you don’t do characters though...” - forgetting that in my first series on MTV I played 20 different characters!
The thing you're most proud of in life?
