As long as she remembers herself, 27 years old Cassandra Spiteri has always had a passion for drama and art. The love for drama started at primary and secondary school. She then gained experience by taking part as an extra in local and foreign productions.
Since she’s always wanted to do more than just be an extra, she started practising certain accents and studying ways actors acted. In 2017, Cassandra decided to approach Sharp Shoot Media to show her interest in their upcoming production. After an audition, she was chosen for the leading role.
Eve: When you’re not acting, what do you do that gives you equal pleasure?
Cassandra Spiteri: In order to clear my mind and keep myself fit and healthy, I try and find as much time as possible for fitness training. Also since I’m artistic and I love creativity, I love grabbing my camera and going somewhere around our beautiful island, where I can just take shots of whatever I like to capture.
Eve: What’s the hardest part about being an actress and what’s the best?
CS: The hardest part has to be trying to concentrate on your interpretation, especially when trying to keep the same composure on multiple takes, especially when filming crying scenes.
The best part definitely has to be doing the interpretation itself. You’re ready with your costume, hair and make-up, and you’re in character. Regardless of the amount of takes being filmed, it’s amazing!
Eve: Do you consider fashion to be an important part of your life?
CS: I’ve loved fashion since I was a little girl, so I have to say yes without a doubt! I love being creative with my own outfits – from wearing something basic, to something stylish and edgy.
Eve: New technology and gadgets hit the shelves every day. What is currently at the top of your wish list?
CS: A gimbal for my camera and a good set of wireless headphones.
Eve: Where do you see yourself in ten years’ time?
CS: Doing things that I love the most, such as continuing my passion for drama, travelling to explore different culture, and hopefully growing my family.
