Atlanta Free Speech would like to highlight model and actress Erica Page. Erica, who is a native of Dunwoody, Georgia, began working in the entertainment industry four years ago. In this short time, this talented actress has booked various projects including, Osiris (web series), BET’s The Game, Sleepy Hollow, The Cure, The Killing Secret, Love N Success, and First Impression. As a woman of color, she has proved that she can definitely survive in this industry.
Erica knew at an early age that she wanted to be an actress. However, it wasn’t until a few years ago that she decided to chase her dream. Before the passing of Erica’s grandfather, he gave her a few words of encouragement; he said, “always do what makes you happy,” and told her she could do anything she puts her mind to—she was his super-star. This was the motivation that Erica needed to pursue her dream of acting. She began participating in beauty pageants and freelance photo shoots in an effort to gain experience. Shortly thereafter, she landed a role as an extra on the movie, ‘Fast Five’, which made her realize that she wanted to become an actress on the big screen, so she immediately began to take acting classes. Erica had finally recognized that acting was her “calling.”
Even though Erica has a love for acting, she is most passionate about her loved ones. “I love my family and closest friends. They support me and keep me going. All of the most special moments in life are with the ones we love. Without them, nothing is worth it,” says Erica.
The life of a working actor is not always glitz and glamour. When Erica is not on set for a project, she is working out to maintain her physic, prepping for auditions and shoots. She also meets with her acting coach, Vince Pisani, on a regular basis, as well as attends acting classes. In addition to all she does, Erica also has a part-time job in the evenings that gives her the flexibility she needs to pursue her dream of acting full time.
Naturally, the ultimate goal for most actors is to win an Academy Award, but Erica has other plans. “If I don’t win an Oscar, I’m okay with that. I just want to make movies and television shows that capture people’s attention and hearts and moves them in a way they’ve never been moved before,” said Erica.
In the near future, Erica plans to start an organization that focuses on helping battered women and children, as she has always been an advocate for underprivileged children. Erica embodies the essence of what hard work, dedication and commitment can do in the pursuit of ones life’s goals.
