Lysa Apostle says: "I really can't explain what brought me
to become an actor or why I love this unbelievably difficult and
sometimes cut throat business of acting. Once you begin it becomes
a part of your soul. It is your existence; why you were put on
this earth or your own "personal meaning" in this world.
Even if life takes you into other professions or career choices
it never leaves you. The desire to have to act out and tell stories.
After all that is what we really are as actors; storytellers."
have always been fascinated with the "Old South" and
antebellum times. It probably has a lot to do with being raised
in New Orleans Louisiana. My favorite movie of all time is GONE
WITH THE WIND. After watching GWTW for the first time at 12 years
old, I decided right then and there to be an actress so I could
always relive or duplicate, in a way, some piece of history and
"I loved being in BENEATH LOCH NESS, because I got to get
down and dirty and do all of my own stunts. I love being athletic
and taking physical risks. I also have a fascination with the
"unknown" and life's mysteries and folklore. So it really
was a pleasure to be a part of one of life's greatest enigma's:
The Loch Ness Monster."
"I once told my mother when I win an academy award and am
interviewed by Barbara Walters and Johnny Carson, I am going to
say: "Allow me to immerse into another world and I will show
you all that life has to offer."
"Corny, I know, but give a kid credit for having her Oscar
Speech ready at the age of 12."
"Be clever, be diligent and above all else be true to who
you are. There are a lot of actors out there trying to be like
someone else...be YOU." ~ LYSA
