Interview: Model/Actress Martina Menichini (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Hello everyone. My name is Martina Menichini, in life I am an artist. I define myself as well because my way of living is different from normal, not like the normal. Besides being a great sport, so many years as sincronette are a teacher of oriental dance and synchronized swimming judge, I joined the sports world the other face of my inner life ... my being an actress. I love to explore the nuances of my being with the study of the characters, for example, February is the scene with a text of Harold Pinter, “ Lovers”. I'm bringing into play looking, exploring myself to put my every single emotions in the service of art. I'm an only child, loved, of this I am very grateful and fortunate.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
Nothing. I accept it as is, including its strengths and weaknesses. I learned to listen to my needs of a woman, as an actress, but above all I pay attention to what my body asks me. I treat him well, I love you. All changes in each case, is inevitable. Even if we do not we change, for better or for worse, there are those who do not know, however I try to take consciousness and awareness. Sometimes one is not aware of being the enemy of himself, and there we prevent happiness. I fight for this, for my happiness that lies within us.
How did you start actress ?
I started when I realized that I liked being the center, I was looking for the room even in movies that are done in the family, I liked the photos, show me.
My parents have gone along with this my being, and I started to discover slowly. First with the photo stories (Cioè, Pop’s) , then I was chosen as the protagonist of the film "Nothing but us" by Angelo Announce and from that moment I decided to put myself to study and I went to London alone. In my home near Hammersmith, I ate Shakespeare for breakfast, studying in the Central School of Speech and Drama. Finally realizing my identity… I wanted to be an actress.
What do you think of the work as an actress?
Acting is the most interesting job in the world. It allows you to always huge introspective paths, to put you in front of your limits and overcome them. You can never stop studying, because the characters grow up with you, then go hand in hand, you can not set them aside. Although it's tiring, both physically and psychologically, but manages to give you the satisfaction that are not human.
What is your beauty regimen?
I try to be calm and quiet. I eat healthy, and do lots of sport.
For body care once a week I do a massage, even a excuse to relax and spend a little time for me. It’s important to pamper yourself sometimes.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
Others describe me as a volcano of energy, like a girl who can do so many things that you can not keep count, and that I do all right. Full of life. positive, a magnet that attracts and that hardly away. I think that this characteristic of mine makes me particularly. If later in life people sign in the heart, and I can either love or envy.
What are your plans for the future?
Now I focus on Pinter, a Nobel Prize to honor. The character of Sarah is a great challenge for me. Then I continue to sow, knowing that my chance will come back soon, a nice fiction or film. In the heart I always London, and would not mind coming back perhaps to an important engagement for Broadway. I let myself be surprised by life, knowing that the determination, discipline and talent pay on everything, with a little luck does not hurt.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Have been the face of Sky, in Italy is very important. Television That experience formed me, as well as being the protagonist of the film "Nothing that we" just come of age. In my heart also the first time I got on stage, adrenaline before the entry into the scene and the time in which an internship Anna Strasberg after my Chechov 's monologue told me I was born to be an actress.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start acting?
The first thing I say to those who want to embark on this journey of life is to be aware that this is a job, not just a passion. We must study and train always, do training for the body, train your voice and be free from prejudices to show. Being an artist does that mean, to have the courage to be.
