Always keeping it real, Isidora will walk you down a path that’s included extra work, standing in for A-listers, going from student to teacher to student of her very own teaching, bringing a 9 day old human to the set of Shameless, and living that beautiful reality where a no-line audition becomes a series regular role.
“If I’m not 100 percent me in the role, I can’t be authentic in my acting…Even if it’s a different character, I have to make it myself.”
“I had this light bulb moment…My ego is so obsessed with result that I’m missing the actual point of all of this, which is knowledge, and learning and joy.”
“I guess through teaching it made me relax and just kind of surrender to the moment.”
“As actors we are so much validating ourselves by the measure of our success, and the measure of the success of others, and I was measuring my talent by how successful I was, and that is a slippery slope, man.”
“If you want to be a good actor I think you have to learn who you are first, before you can be anybody else.”
