At a younger age, Stephanie Sacco used to attend the Naxxar Scouts Group. It was here when she started showing interest in drama, after being involved in the plays which they used to produce.
At the age of 14, she started taking drama lessons with different tutors. Her first experience on stage was playing a small role during a Christmas pantomime. Following that, Stephanie had the opportunity to play other small roles in theatrical productions and local TV dramas.
“I was unexpectedly chosen to take part in the drama Għeruq and I had to play two roles, Marianna and Sharon. This was certainly one of the greatest opportunities I had been given at that time. Then I had taken some time off due to personal reasons, but I started missing drama. Almost a year after, I decided to take part in a theatrical production with All In Act Entertainment. Finally, I once again started to include acting in my routine schedule. During these last five years, I attended workshops to improve my acting skills and I took part in theatrical productions and performances in unconventional venues. I played a small role in two short films and in a feature horror film. I’m currently playing Audrey Manche in Libra, which is broadcast every Thursday on One,” states Stephanie in this interview.
How would you describe the local drama scene?
Our local drama scene is always getting better. I believe that in Malta we have a lot of talented people. However, it’s difficult to compete with foreign productions because of limited budgets.
What would you never ever buy, and why not?
I would never buy something that I don’t like just for the sake of it being in fashion.
What’s been the best piece of advice you’ve been given so far?
I don’t really remember the best one! My parents are my role models. Being a mother myself, I will surely follow in their footsteps.
How would you describe your relationship with money?
Nowadays, money is crucial. We need it for most of the things we do. Medication costs money. Having a job and earning money is essential.
What’s been your biggest failure to date?
I believe everything happens for a reason. Unpleasant experiences which I’ve been through have helped me become the person that I am today.
What makes you happy in life?
Spending time with my family, especially with my daughter Aalaiya.
