Today on the UNWAVERING Actor Highlight series we are featuring Brianna Burke.
The role Brianna played in UNWAVERING was Emily. Emily’s character is spunky and a bit fearless. When Brianna auditioned I could definitely feel her energy and her incredible talent emanated through her performance. While filming she kept the energy level up and brought her own life to the character.
Soon to be graduating high school, Brianna has had quite the filming career thus far. She started performing at the age of 6 and has been involved with over 34 productions, 8 dance teams, and has danced at Disney twice. To see the films she’s been involved with you can visit her IMDB page
Here are the questions we asked Brianna:
MPF: What was your favorite part of filming for UNWAVERING?
Brianna: My favorite part of filming Unwavering was all the amazing and talented people I got the chance to meet. Being one of the youngest actors in the film for the certain scenes I was in (16 at the time), was certainly nerve racking. Everyone on set felt like family, considering we were together from sunrise to sundown some days. We all share tight bonds that continue today. Everyone was so driven and hardworking. It was truly an amazing group.
MPF: Which actor(s) inspire you?
Brianna: One of my most inspirational actors I look up to is Ellen DeGeneres. She is so talented and has such a natural knack for acting. You can clearly tell how much she enjoys her job and how much happiness it brings her, which is the most important aspect for me. She is also very unique and lets that shine through her work which I have all kinds of respect for.
MPF: What are a couple of your hobbies?
Brianna: I have many hobbies, as many as any 17 year old girl would have. I have been performing since I could remember on stage. I have done many many musicals, straight plays, and dance team. I have even performed in Disney World twice. Aside from acting, singing, and dancing, I love to cheer. I joined High School Varsity cheer in 2014 and fell in love with it ever since. Being under the Friday night lights with my best friends was such a great experience. I also enjoy being active and fashion blogging. My best friend and I started a fashion blog together in 2016 and it’s something we both put all our heart in. As any senior in high school, I am always with my friends and at basketball and football games! It’s something I will miss come graduation!
MPF: What made you interested in acting?
Brianna: I started acting when I was 6, and sure I could make up some story about how I remember exactly why I wanted to act when I first started, but obviously I do not remember. As I got older however, I realized why I began acting. I love getting to portray another person. It’s truly a cool thing to do. You totally escape reality and get to entertain the world with a role which may just touch their heart.
MPF: Favorite color?
Brianna: As cliche as it is, I am a girly girl and PINK is my favorite! No shame!
MPF: Do you have any advice for aspiring actors?
Brianna: My advice to any aspiring actors, never ever stop doing what you love. If you are like me, then you look at all these other occupations in the world, trying to figure out which one will make you happiest, and acting is always at the top of the list. Doing what you love everyday means you will never have to work a day in your life. Acting jobs come in waves, and once that wave hits I promise all kinds of opportunities will come. Stay patient. Stay kind. Stay driven. Pray. Live life. And always be the best you can be!
