Kacey Rohl Q&A

May 04, 2012

Up-and-coming Canadian actress Kacey Rohl got her big break when she was cast alongside Amanda Seyfried in Red Riding Hood and now she’s the star of the heartwarming horse movie Flicka: Country Pride. Find out more about her in her Kidzworld Q&A!

Kidzworld: How old are you and where are you from?

  • Kacey Rohl: I’m 20 years old and I’m from Vancouver, British Columbia.

KW: What originally made you want to act?

  • Kacey: I grew up around it, my mom is a playwright and my dad is a film director so I grew up hanging out with a lot of actors. I don’t remember a specific moment where I was like “yes this is what I want to do”, but I would always be on stage during my mom’s rehearsals, it was just sort of a natural progression.

KW: What was your favorite part of filming Flicka: Country Pride?

  • Kacey: My favorite part was that I got to ride everyday and my favorite scene, I like the dance scene, I got to just hang out all day which was sweet, and I get to run! I get to run away when she pushes me into the cake!.

KW: How do you relate to your character in Flicka?

  • Kacey: I definitely beat myself up sometimes for things that aren’t really my fault, I’ve been really blessed to not have anything quite as tragic as what happened to her happen to me, I definitely take on things that aren’t my thing. I deal with things by dancing or running and doing something physical and she rides.

KW: You have had many TV and film roles already, what has been your favorite role so far?

  • Kacey: Probably this one honestly, I got to learn how to ride and I d never really ridden that much before, so that was fantastic and it was the most I had ever been trusted with in terms of the size of the role. And I met so many good people, so many friends from there.

KW: You’ve cast in the film Taken Aback, what is it about?

  • Kacey: Oh I just wrapped that a couple weeks ago, it’s about a young girl who is kidnapped and raised in an entirely different home and when she’s 15 years old her real mother comes back and finds her and everything just explodes, it’s very dramatic. It’s pretty hardcore!

KW: Who do you look up to in the acting world?

  • Kacey: I respect a ton of different actors for many different reasons, in terms of humanitarian stuff I think what Angelina Jolie does is amazing, that she can balance all that. In terms of careers all the Kates: Cate Blanchette, Kate Winslet, also Jodie Foster - all these really strong talented women that own all their feelings – I like those ladies the best.

KW: What is the best piece of advice you’ve received since starting out?

  • Kacey: Trust yourself and trust the people you’re working with and know that whatever you do and wherever you go you’re always going to be safe.

KW: What’s something most people don’t know about you?

  • Kacey: I play the ukulele! I play dream a little dream of me, it’s my standby!

KW: What kind of roles would you like in the future?

  • Kacey: I’m sort of interested in everything, I just love my job so funny things, dramatic things, weird wacky things-I’m game for anything!

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.'What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending.It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
