I recently had the opportunity to exclusively interview Alysha Wright to learn five random facts about herself and what lesson she learned from writing her first short Toxipeutic. Check out my interview with Alysha below:
Loryn: What inspired you to be a part of some of your latest projects: psychological thriller Inexistent and Chaaw & Freetown to Flatbush?
Alysha: I really enjoyed working with all of the teams on each project. I think the initial appeal that they all shared is that I saw how special these projects were to the creative teams. . I love an atmosphere where everyone wants to make something amazing and we all work collectively towards that end.
Loryn: Who is an actor or actress you'd like to work with in the future?
Alysha: There are so many insanely talented people I could name, and the list changes daily. Definitely, Viola Davis, she seems to fill the room onscreen.
Loryn: What lesson did you learn from writing your first short Toxipeutic?
Alysha: I learned that writing is therapy, It's simultaneously reflective and expressive. It's also one of the best ways to be vulnerable while creative because it invites others into your world while they go on their own journey guided by your words.
Loryn: What lesson have you've learned from being in the entertainment industry?
Alysha: There's something for everyone so being yourself is the best branding you cant buy.
Loryn: What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?
Alysha: I'm really shy, I'm a socially awkward extrovert, I can be the life of the party from the corner of the room.
