I recently had the opportunity to exclusively interview Caslin Rose to learn five random facts about herself and what lesson has the entertainment industry taught her. Check out my interview with Caslin below:
Loryn: How would your ten-year-old self react to what you do now?
Caslin: 10-year-old me would never believe I have a career SPEAKING in front of a camera. Not only as an actress filming a scene but as an on-camera host looking directly into the lens. I even do presentations for companies at large trade shows and emcee work in front of live audiences. Oh my. I was extremely shy growing up and the last thing I wanted was attention or to have people looking at me. I always envisioned a career in the entertainment industry to some capacity, but I always believed it was going to be for my gymnastics career. Having this sort of background makes it easier to relate to my podcast audience who may be scared or hesitant to begin their careers in entertainment.
Loryn: Who is a guest you'd love to have on your podcast Always ActingUp?
Caslin: There are so many guests and talented artists I’d love to have on “Always Acting Up Podcast”, but if I could only choose one, I would have to say entertainment host, Maria Menounous. Not only does she have an inspiring career, but she also gives back a lot. I also admire that she is proactive in her career, establishing her own show, podcast, and Afterbuzz TV, helping other hosts grow their careers.
Loryn: What lesson has the entertainment industry taught you?
Caslin: The entertainment has taught me to grow tough skin. It is not easy, and people are not always nice. There is a lot of rejection and what comes from that is often self-doubt. I think you have to make a decision on whether or not you want to take the easy way out and wish you were pursuing a career in the arts, or learn to push forwards and actually do it. Even the task of “pushing forward” can be mentally draining at times, so it's important to take breaks and keep your creativity nurtured and fulfilled with other projects, hence, “Always Acting Up Podcast”.
Loryn: How has the pandemic changed you?
Caslin: This pandemic has been an emotional rollercoaster, to say the least. I believe we will all be feeling the effects of it for years to come in many ways. What I realized most is how alone I truly am in my career efforts. Yes, I have family and friends that I love and I am grateful for, an agent (ish) but NOBODY is going to work as hard as I’m going to work, but me. I guess you can say, it was time to “boss up!”.
Loryn: What is something people are surprised to learn about you?
Caslin: People may be surprised to know that I am also a photographer, so I’m comfortable behind the camera taking photos and doing my own post-production editing work. That goes for “Always Acting Up” as well. I am the creator/editor/PR & social media manager/ etc. I’d love to work with a full team one day, but until then, I’m just moving forwards.
