We are excited to announce that actress Alyssa Sheets has landed the Evil Nun role as “Sister Emilie”. Film production begins summer of 2017.
We’ve been chatting with Alyssa and learned a little bit about her:
Q. Not yet having seen the script, as an actor how do you prepare/research your role?
A. Well, what I try to do to prepare for the role is I try and get myself in shape so I can perform the best I can. Something else that helps me is the people I surround myself with. I try and surround myself with positive people that push me to do my best. Watching the trailer for the movie helped a great deal as well, of course.
Q. Given what you know from the cast and crew posts about CT, what and/or who are you most interested in seeing in the film?
A. I would honestly have to say that I am pretty excited to see everyone! I’m feeling pretty pumped to see how it all turns out when the project is finished!
Q. Do you have any pets and what are their names?
A. I do! I have a chow/collie mix, his name is Bear. I also have a miniature Pomeranian named Daisy May! I bought her as a gift to myself for passing the drivers test a year and a half ago. (laughs)
Q. What was your favorite TV show growing up?
A. Oh my goodness, Rugrats all the way! (laughs)
Q. What’s your favorite thing to do on weekends?
A. On the weekends I LOVE going to church. It always makes me feel better after a long, or stressful week.
Q. Do you remember your first time in an airplane?
A. Lord, do I! (laughs) I have been afraid of heights for as long as I can remember; and I had the window seat. I remember my whole body shaking in fear! I was so happy when I got off the plane that I hugged the first pole I seen and said to myself, “Thank you God! I am now safe on the ground again!”
Q. Who was the most influential person in your life?
A. Well, aside from Jesus and my family. There has been a few people that have influenced me, and made a big difference in my life. Pastor Dan/Mercy, Jeff, Bianca, Wil, Yoann, Judeson, Kendrick, Anthony/Audry, Steve, and Manny . I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have them in my life. They have all made the biggest difference to me, and have really inspired me to want to do better.
