About This Show
“What is Hollywood anyway? Just a bunch of people from other places."
From these words pronounced by Meryl Streep and addressed to the Golden Globes' crowd earlier this year stemmed the idea of ACTSIDERS. A podcast that would shed light upon my fellow actors who like me left their home country to pursue acting in the Big Apple!
Every other Monday, I'll be chatting with one actor from a different country who will reveal her/his "behind the scenes". Why did they decide to uproot themselves? What does it mean to be an outsider in this industry? From the audition room to the urban jungle struggle, what is their daily life like? Stories about choices, audacity, dreams, dedication and unconditional passion for the performing arts.

Paz: "I love breaking these comfort zones that we all get".
Dec 13 2017
I am so grateful to be wrapping up this conversation series with our last guest of the season, Paz Garcia, a beautiful and soulful actress from Majorca - the biggest island of the Balearic Islands, located in the Mediterranean sea.
Before moving to New York, Paz first set foot in Barcelona where she discovered the Meisner Technique. There she started her career doing commercials, short films, prints. She quickly felt like she needed more and New York looked like the perfect match. "When I follow my instinct something good happens." she tells me. And as a matter of fact, her journey in New York has been incredibly rewarding. You will also hear her opening up about the origins of such an enduring inner trust and vision for herself.
Later on, we dwell upon the importance of saying "no" in a professional setting, the vital and necessary readjustments in one's career, her vision and project for a more "sensible" education system. And for the last open mic of the season, Paz will be singing an Alicia Keys song.
Thank you Paz and all of you who have been listening and following Actsiders during this first season! It has been such a blast I cannot wait to launch the second season in the Spring 2018!
Wishing you all a magnificent Christmas!
