In this BackStage, Actor2Watch, exclusive, Amber shares her thoughts on acting and getting roles.
ACTOR2WATCH: What was your first role?
AMBER STEVENS: My first commercial was an Old Navy commercial where I stood in line in front of a club and Fran Drescher was in it.
A2W: Do you have a really bad audition story or moment?
AMBER STEVENS: I was pretty mortified once by reading with the casting director's assistant and they were mouthing all of my lines. It completely threw me off and was really awkward and I didn't know how to act. The audition was just crap!
A2W: What would be your dream role?
AMBER STEVENS: I would love to play Mimi on Rent actually. Because acting is actually a pretty new thing for me, I only started acting like four years ago, so I never did theater before. I would love to try and do it. And then on top of it to play Mimi and get to sing the songs that Jonathan Larson wrote for that show, I would just be in heaven I think.
A2W: Is there anything you wish you could tell someone that's just starting out in acting?
AMBER STEVENS: One of the best things you can do is take an on camera class where you just learn about hitting your mark, and lighting, and the way you look best on camera. That was all a huge surprise for me, learning that stuff on set, and I'm still getting used to it. So I think to be a really prepared professional that kind of class would really help.
