1. How did you get your start in the entertainment industry?
I moved to LA from San Diego when I was 15 years old and that’s when I officially started my acting career. I got an agent, signed up for classes, and prepared for this amazing journey.
2. What was it like shooting “Cazadora”?
It was an absolutely amazing experience. I got to be a part of almost every aspect of the movie making process and I learned so much from it. We had super long hours on set, but every moment of it was worth it because the cast and crew were so supportive and talented and I got to do my own stunts, which was crazy awesome!
3. What was a typical day like on-set?
It was super busy, we had to make sure that everything was prepared for every shot and with action films, there’s a lot more that has to be prepared beforehand. While we were watching playback, it felt like we were holding our breath with every shot because it was just turning out so good. After doing all of the stunt work, I was absolutely exhausted, but I was still super excited to get to the rest of the scenes so it didn’t even faze me. I feel like everyone else felt the same because in between takes, you could still see everyone smiling.
4. Which character do you play?
I play Cazadora in “Cazadora”. She’s not the kind of girl who will just sit back and watch things happen. She’ll fight for what she believes in and she’ll throw in a sarcastic remark about it too.
5. What is the film about?
It’s about Cazadora, her father, and innocent people getting kidnapped next to the border. Their kidnappers have told them that in order to be set free, they have to go through an obstacle course and fight their way out. Cazadora ends up using her superpowers and fights off some really big baddies.
6. How did you land your role on “Clique Wars”?
It started off as a group of a people who just wanted to create something and then “Clique Wars” came out of that. We had a bunch of different people work on it and thankfully, I was one of them.
7. Why do you think the show does so well?
I think the variety that the show has in each episode allows it to stay fresh. Every two episodes have the same theme and then the next two have something new and fun for the audience.
8. Are you working on any other projects at the moment?
I just finished a pilot called “Should I Do It?” where a play character named Dorothy. She’s the nerd of the show and I also had a ton of fun being her. Dorothy is very different from Cazadora and Molly and it was an interesting experience getting to explore that.
9. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not acting?
I love discovering new music. I’d like to think I’m a human Shazam, you name a song and I’ll be able to know it instantly. My range goes from classical music to classic rock and from chill beach music to Chinese hip hop.
10. If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?
My first wish would be to have the ability to fill up anything. Empty cup? Fill it up with water. Empty bank account? Fill it up with money. Empty day? Fill it up with fun things to do. It would come in handy many times.
My second wish would be to have the resources to start my own company that would help out children and artists. I believe that everyone should be given a chance to do what they love and I want to contribute to that.
My third wish would be to have two dogs, one to pet for each hand. Dogs have always been my favorite animal and I’ve never been able to have one.
11. What is a hidden talent you can share with us?
I do martial arts, I have two black belts, and I have done wire work. I think wire work has been my favorite so far because it’s like flipping, but without all of the effort.
12. What are your social media accounts?
You can find me on instagram, twitter, and snapchat at @amberromero99 and on Facebook at Amber Romero.
