“I was interested in drama from a very young age. I remember watching the same dramas over and over again. From when I was about 13 years old, I used to take part in Lourdes pageants every year. At the age of 17, I started taking courses in free spirit acting. I had my first part as an extra in the drama Gizelle. Also I had several small speaking parts after that. Then I had some secondary parts; La Farfalla, Zafira, Dellijiet. So far, the main parts I had were in Emilja and Katrina, explained CHRIS CARUANA in this interview with RAMONA PORTELLI.

How did you get involved in drama?

Once I met Andre Penza and expressed my wish to start acting. He phoned me after a few weeks and asked if I wished to take part in Gizelle and I accepted immediately and from then onwards I continued my career in acting.

I wish to thank all the people that have helped me be who I am in my career today especially Andre Penza and Carlos Farrugia who believed in me and gave me a push. I would also like to thank Evelyn Saliba la Rosa and Michael Vella Haber for casting me several times and for always believing in my talent. And last but not least, all the viewers for their endless support.

How do you try to improve on your acting skills?

By attending courses as you never know enough. I also watch a lot of foreign films to get different ideas about acting.

Do you prefer dining out or clubbing? And why?

I prefer dining out with my family and spending quality time with my two year old daughter, Alaizah.

What was your worst experience to date?

My worst experience in life was when I lost my father twelve years ago.

Are you a night owl, or a morning person?

A night person.

If you could meet anyone in the world – dead or alive, who would it be and what would you say to them?

That would be my father and the only thing I would say to him is ‘I love you and thanks for everything you did for me in your life’, as I never got the chance to say it when he was alive.
