Actor Transformation Interview
We were lucky to sit down and interview the multi-talented Rasheda Ali. Actress, Host, Celebrity Guest, Advocate, Speaker, Author, and more! This beautiful lady is creating major buzz in Hollywood, and helping the world in the meantime!
Please tell our readers about your background in the industry.
I started my Acting career after college and found a genuine love for the Arts. I grew to respect theater performers and the immediate gratification you receive from a live audience. I’ve also grown to appreciate the Meisner technique and understood that you can never stop training, evolving, and improving your craft.
What do you love most about what you do?
I love to inspire others to become their best. And most of all, I love making people smile. I had my own entertainment talk show shot in Las Vegas “In My Corner with Rasheda Ali”. It was rewarding to sit with other artists and learn how they achieved success in their personal and professional lives.
As a prominent speaker, advocate, and author, please tell our readers a little about the fantastic work you have done in your charity work.
After I started my family, I found a desire to try to help my boys understand the condition that affected their grandfather, so I wrote a book explaining to young children the effects of Parkinson disease and its impact on the family. I believe my book has helped us learn about communicating better with your loved ones affected by the condition but most of all it has helped us grow closer understanding the condition, learning compassion and unconditional love for one another.
Thank you Rasheda. You have done so much to help so many people. As an inspiration to so many, do you have any advice that you would like to give to actors starting out in their careers?
There is so much rejection and competition in the entertainment industry but I’ve learned that “No” cannot be a word used in your vocabulary and “Impossible is Nothing” has helped me to stay focused. If you persevere and believe in yourself, No matter how difficult it is, and how many “No’s” you receive, eventually you will get a “Yes”.
What’s next for you in your career?
One of my first film’s was “Beyond Desire” shot in Miami where I played a Police Officer. I would love to play an FBI Agent or a member of law enforcement in a TV series or film. I love to challenge myself and play characters unlike myself.
Any show would be lucky to have you! Thanks again for the interview.
