A few weeks back, Curve's Emelina Minero got on the phone with Simone co-creator and STAR Renée Olbert and hilarity (and sincerity) ensued. And now, you too can find out what they talked about in the interview!
Here's a wee teaser:
I read on the Seeking Simone website that you went to school to go to law school and instead you switched to acting and moved to Toronto to pursue your dream—which is very similar the character you play. Is there a parallel between you and Simone?
Well, I love Simone, so I'm going to say yes. There are, for sure, some similarities. With regards to me, most of my high school career I told my parents that I had intentions of going to law school. And then quickly, when I got into university I went into theater, much to their chagrin, although they're very proud of me now. There are certain similarities. I hope I have a bit more panache in my life than Simone does, or just a little less crazy, but there are, for sure, a ton of similarities between her and I. I can't deny it.
