With a nomination for Best Actress at Worldfest for her work in Elsewhere, NY and two shorts films coming down the line, Fiona Graham is definitely someone to keep an eye. Check out she has to say about her film vs. theatre experiences, upcoming projects and so much more.
Please tell us a bit about yourself and what you are currently working on?
I’m a Londoner living in New York working as an actress, making films, and writing theatre. Right now I’m missing home a bit; a feature I acted in two years ago, Elsewhere NY is an official selection at The East End Film Festival, but, unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it. Elsewhere NY has been doing really well this year at festivals, having screened at Whistler, Cinequest and Worldfest, where I was nominated for best actress. I’m really delighted that my hometown gets a little glimpse. But work calls! I currently have a film in postproduction, ‘Muscle.’ It’s a short, which is fully realized in and of itself, but it’s also a calling card for the feature. I’m really excited about it – it’s a tight, simple script driven by a female narrative. We shot it on the Arri with anamorphic lenses and we used a very specific limited palate embracing the richness of the environment, I think it will look beautiful.
