A must see! 513 Trailer: http://www.traileraddict.com/513-degrees/trailer Pason met and took photos with more actors from Film 513, Gary Dourdan and Steven Bauer. She was also introduced to writer Edouard Valdman. After the screening, cocktail party and dinner it was time to walk the Palais, the Big Red Carpet!!!

I’m grateful for everything and everyone in my life! I didn’t want to leave, LOL!” Then into the huge theatre for the screening of Mommy Directed by Xavier Dolan, which won the Jury Prize!

Pason did take a little time to check out the shops. Cartier! It was one designer shop after another. Directeur Nicolas Ward in Christian Dior was the best! He’s very friendly, knowledgeable, popped open Champagne, pulled out a handbag that matched the rainbow colored Herve Leger dress Pason was wearing and 2 different heels to match. “It was so much fun! Who doesn’t love playing dress up?!” Nicolas informed Pason that the designer shops have their own sections at the Formula 1race in Monaco to entertain clients. Good information to have! “Cannes Film Festival is the best! It was better than Christmas!”
While Pason was on the plane from Paris to Los Angeles a good friend she use to perform with, Caroline Gross, came over to her and said “Pason?” Caroline was with her fiancee in France and they were headed home too. Love how small this world is!

Interview with PASON
by Ramona Portelli
I’ve always gone by Pason. My full name is a very long story. LOL, we could write a whole article on it.
When did you first try hand at acting? Any why acting?
When I was a little girl I used to say I want to be the best storyteller in the world! Most people thought I was talking about writing, but to me the best storytellers are actors. My whole brother and I would put on skits (he was a dancer). I attended a performing arts high school my senior year in Chattanooga, TN as a dance major. We did musical theater productions, so we also got to learn some acting and singing. When I attended Columbia College in Chicago I was a theater/dance major. I love acting more than anything! With acting I’m at home, it resonates with me and me with it. People say I glow when I talk about acting, on a set, in an audition, and in class. I love that!
Are you currently working on any new projects?
I have a few Film projects coming up that I can’t discuss yet. I post all news on my website www.PasonActress.com. I’m also open and looking for more projects. Anyone looking for a great redhead actress send them my way. My goal is to be on set almost everyday of my life acting! I love to work!
I have noticed and read as well, that you’re quickly becoming one of the hottest actresses being sought after in Hollywood. What are your comments in regards this fact?
I love it! I’ve been busting my bum. I train with the number one acting coach in the world “Aaron Speiser”. I don’t wait for things to come to me. You have to be in your classes, go to casting director workshops, go to events, go to Film Festivals, network, do your mailings, market, do general meetings, auditions, interviews, communicate with your reps, build your industry contacts or as I say “new industry friends”, etc… I’m very happy that I got to go to Sundance Film Festival this year with Fremont East Studios. I think it’s fantastic and what I want!
Sometimes you are referred as the redhead actress. Does this bother you? What are your comments?
Not at all! I am a natural redhead (strawberry blond to be exact) and there are not many of us. Plus I’m an actress, so it fits me perfectly. When someone says “I need a great, polished, smart, strong willed, fit, pretty redhead actress” or some combo of that, I’m happy to be in their head and the one they contact.
For quite a good time, you were an international headliner as a
dancer/aerialist. But you retired from your dance/aerial career in 2010. Meantime you had consistently kept up with your private acting classes since 1998, as acting is your passion. What happened next in your career? And what made you stop from dancing & aerial work?
I had achieved what I wanted to as a dancer/aerialist. I was very blessed! It’s not something that has longevity, benefits, residuals, retirement, etc… It’s also a very high risk job! Which is why you train for hours and learn about rigging. Your body also gets injuries and as you become older your body changes. I had prepared for my transition several years before I transitioned. I was performing on a stage and someone that was filming a movie called “Spring Break ’83” saw me, offered me a role, which I did. I got 2 other offers soon after. I took it as a sign from God that it was time for me to come home, make the transition and I was completely prepared. “Use your skills to make money while preparing to transition, eventually you’ll get to the point where you can transition.” I feel confident to walk into an acting audition and entertain my audience (Casting Director, Director, Producer) and any meeting. Acting has longevity, benefits, residuals and retirement, when your union and stable.
Proudly you can say that so far you had several lead roles in many feature films, and has been seen on comedy pilots, Lopez Tonight Show, many other television, web series, music videos, performed on over 100 stages, seen in over 80 magazines, had a 5ft photo of you that hung in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art that the NY Times wrote an article about calling it the “Essence of Power”, posed for 3 Bronze Sculptures by Andrew Cawrse and heard on radio. Is there any other thing you would like to add to your curriculum/future agenda?
Absolutly! I love what I do! I love to work as an Actress in Film & TV! I know what a gift it is! I will continue to progress in my acting career doing more Feature Films, TV shows, Commercials and not limit myself to great opportunities/potentials that come my way. I love it when my schedule is filled with filming. It helps me not stress. When I receive a new script it’s like Christmas to me! I get to travel internationally to shoot and love that! I say I want a career like Betty White, meaning I want the stability, consistency and longevity like her. I’m becoming more involved with charity/volunteer work. I will win Oscar’s and Emmy’s. I will also have a family.
Are there any behind-the-scenes anecdotes you can share with our
The hardest thing wasn’t really with acting but I had to learn it for acting, which was learning a standard American accent. I was raised in GA/TN and had a very thick southern accent. I couldn’t hear the difference in how I said words and how others did. It took me 2 years just to say “I” properly. This was the hardest thing for me to learn, but I keep at it for years and now I speak with a standard American accent, but can easily go into a Southern or very proper, old school, Savannah style Southern accent when asked.
In your opinion, what is the best thing in life?
Life it’s self! Love, Passion, being true to you and being happy. Health. Great supportive people. You meet some of the most amazing, creative people in this business! There are so many things, but the best is life it’s self. Acting is living in real life in the imaginary world of the script.
What’s your sense of style and what do you wear on a daily basis?
Depends on what I’m doing. LOL! My style is classy, sexy, a little sporty. I’m petite, fit, and curvy, so I am limited with designers that will actually fit me or I buy things at a discount and have them altered or made for me. I wear a lot of Karen Millen, DVF, Alice & Olivia, Herve Leger, Seven for all Mankind jeans, Ellie Tahari (I have altered). I have Dior, Gucci, Prada, D&G, Armani. For basics like tank tops, T-shirts or leggings I buy at H&M or Forever 21. I love a bargain and I love fashion!
What is the hardest part of being a celebrity?
I don’t see that any part is hard. I’ve never had a 9-5pm job. I’m thankful for that! I’ve had a very unique life, so things are not foreign to me. People are just people, no matter where they come from, race, religion, careers. I am careful as to where I go especially by myself as I believe every woman should be.
What are some of the difficulties of the acting business?
It’s entertainment. You are your business. You have to get out there, do the work, let it be known you exist, make sure you’re prepared (skills and appearance), be open but be you in the process and treat others with respect and as people. When things are slow use that time to network more, do some volunteer work. I volunteered for the WIF Malibu Celebrity Golf Classic and had a blast! It was a chance to give back, make new friends and network at the same time. Just like any business you can be swamped with work one min., it gets slow and gets busy again. It is difficult to educate someone that’s never been in entertainment with how it all works. People think we just memorize words and nothing
much else. There’s so much more that goes into it!
Behind the cameras, and during acting, you always look great. How do you stay in shape? Is there any secret you follow and can share with my readers?
Guess my previous job had something to do with it. When I was 14 yrs old my mom had a gym in our house, so I started to do an hour of cardio 5 days a week and conditioning/stretching for another 1.5 hrs, which I still practice. When I was a dancer/aerialist I would do an hour of cardio, ballet 3-4 days a week, Pilates 3-4 days a week, train on aerial hoop, hammock and Spanish web for an hour 2-3 days a week plus shows. I can’t say all that training hasn’t helped me physically. I’ve always eaten pretty healthy. Water, fish or turkey, fresh fruits, fresh veggies, I do have a weakness for sugar. When I was a kid we were not allowed fast food, soda, tea or coffee. Currently I do cardio for an hour 4-5 days a week (I have a treadmill at home), Ballet/pointe 2 times
a week and the days I don’t go to ballet after my cardio I do and 1.5 hrs of conditioning/stretching, I also swim 1-2 days a week if my schedule permits. So basically cardio, ballet, Pilates, swimming.
What are your plans for the rest of this year?
Goal is to be on set acting almost everyday, be booked all year and for years to come. Go to more events, continue to build my industry contacts and find a great boyfriend!

Pason was invited to attend one of the best Film Festivals in the world, Sundance Film Festival http://www.sundance.org/festival/ in Park City, UT by Fremont East Studios http://fremonteaststudios.com. Pason the Redhead Actress had 2 nights full of events, networking, Sundance Channel HQ pre-party, pictures on red carpets, Steve Aoki party/show where Lil Jon also performed, etc… At Sundance there are a lot of great films to see, Q & A’s (Pason’s fav.) and of course the first night Pason and the Fremont East Studios team (Freeman White, Cecilia L. Padilla, John DiMarco, Colton Rybus and Tara Graeber) headed out to go meet some friends on Main St. where they saw Philip Seymour Hoffman which is not uncommon to see A-list actors and actresses walking along the street at Sundance Film Festival.
Many people attending the festival also enjoy the beautiful, white snow and take advantage of seeing films, skiing, snowboarding, events, bars, clubs, and meeting new people. Pason does not ski or snowboard but made a snowman, lol. Pason also chatted with Lightning Entertainment Group http://www.lightningentertainmentgroup.com International Sales Agent | Distributor, Writer and Director Will Hartman http://willhartman.com, cinematographer Jonathan Cabrera, Hollywood Party Columnist Mikey Glazer.
“It was an amazing trip where I made new friends, saw some old ones and ran into people where we both looked at each other and said you look familiar where do I know you from? Then exchanged contact info.. While at the Steve Aoki show 2 guys told me they were fans and asked if they could take a picture with me. I said of course! It made me smile and I didn’t even have a film in the festival this year. So that’s a goal for next year. Also while at the Steve Aoki show I was in VIP & a male friend asked me “how do u do it?” I said “what?” He said “Women love u! Correction people love u.” I turn around and all 3 bikini Gogo dancers are next to me on the couch I was standing on. I just laughed and took pictures with them, LOL!”
It was a great trip and I thank Fremont East Studios for inviting me! They all rock!
