Hi Britt! First question: where can we see you right now?

My latest project is Rob Riggle’s Ski Master Academy, which is a comedy tv series and aired August 23rd on Sony Crackle. It’s about Rob Riggle who opens this jet ski academy. I play Brit Hamsteak, who is a counselor whose dream it is to teach jet ski stunts, but her father (who is also a counselor) doesn’t want her to and it’s just an absurd comedy with an amazing cast.

What is something you will always remember about shooting this series?

Well, we shot this one up in the heart of Malibu where they shot “Wet Hot American Summer” and I will definitely remember that it was a really quick shoot because we didn’t have a lot of time, so we shot one scene from episode 8 and then another scene from episode 3 and so on. It genuinely felt like Summer camp! I’ll never forget how much fun it was and how strong the team spirit was.

Glad you had fun! Speaking of a strong team spirit: would you like to tell us something about GLOW?

Oh, sure! I could talk a whole day about GLOW. It definitely is the biggest thing I’ve ever been in and it is an almost entire female cast, which makes it quite unique. There is not just woman power going on in front of the camera, but also behind the scenes. We’ve got nearly only women as writers and the producers are mostly women, so it creates a really special atmosphere on set. And there definitely is a strong team spirit going on. It feels like a family!

How is training together?

It’s the best, really! I mean, when we shot the first season I knew nothing. None of us were wrestlers except for Kia Stevens, so you have to imagine that you’ve got this new fancy job (which is such a dream because you know that this could be your breakthrough) and you want to fit in and be off to a great start with your new co-workers. That’s always a challenge no matter what your job is, but the fact that you are wrestling doesn’t make things easier. You are flipping your co-worker onto their backs and geting paid for it. That’s crazy if you think about it. You’re wrestling strangers! And let me tell you: it hurts the first 30 times you flip yourself onto your back. And it’s frustrating and super embarrassing and you do feel venerable, but it’s not just you. You’re not the only one!  It helps seeing the others going through the exact same thing as you. Seeing each other go through good and bad days while training made us bond and experience a kind of closeness that you don’t usually get that quickly.

And how is it working with a cast and production team that was almost women only?

It’s amazing! We all feel so welcome and encouraged to be ourselves. I know that there are a lot of stereotypes out there and the common belief that women can’t work together without scratching each other’s eyes out, but that’s so not the case here. Nobody feels insecure about their body or anything because the atmosphere is just so welcoming and friendly and I don’t see them as the people I have to work with, but as my friends. It’s like a sisterhood! As I’ve already said, we all train together which creates this special bond between us. It feels like a family. The biggest thing I take away from GLOW is the relationships.

Does wrestling each other help creating this bond?

(laughs) Yeah! Actually, it does! We have to trust each other because you know what you see is what you get. We are wrestling and we literally lift each other up and we get thrown on the ground and really train hard to make everything as realistic as possible.

What can we expect from season 2 (for those who haven’t seen it)?

Season 2 was all about bigger, better, and faster moves! We got better, we worked even harder and we were eager to elevate our wrestling scenes to the next level.

What do you hope for the future for GLOW?

I just hope it only continues to get even better and be authentic and real.

What’s a movie genre you would love to play in and is there a genre you would never try?

I would love to do an action movie! Flips and flying and car stuff; that would be awesome (laughs). I would love to do that! But I’m open for every genre. I don’t want to judge something I haven’t done yet. I’m open for whatever comes next and I want to at least try it and not be stuck with something. Horror films, for example; I don’t like watching them because I get scared way too easily, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want to be in one!

And imagine you could produce your own movie; what would your dream cast look like?

Definitely the big names of all the talented and gorgeous women I look up to. It would be a cast only consisting of women and they would be Natalie Portman, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Zoey Deutch and Julianne Moore. I would aim for a strong female project with women I idolize in the industry.

What’s the last movie you saw?

Eighth Grade. Great movie!

What’s the best piece of advice someone has ever given you?

When I moved to LA one of the best pieces of advice I ever got was “watch as many movies as you can and get to know every genre”, which I think has really helped me. I’m watching  series’ I wouldn’t haven normally chosen for myself, but I watch it because you learn by leaning back and analyzing how other actors play their role.  And this is crucial! Because when you audition for something a lot of times you get told something like “Mad Men meets The Office” and you have to know what that means.

I would love to see a show that’s like a mix of Mad Men and The Office. Could be entertaining (laughs). What else do you like to do in your free time?

Mostly, I hang out with my dog, go for walks, meet friends and I volunteer for the rescue shelter I got my dog from. Oh and I love puzzles! I’m obsessed with them (laughs).

When I took a look at your Instagram I noticed that you were posting a lot about shelter dogs. Do you feel like social media gives you a voice?

Yes, absolutely! When I got my dog from the shelter it was the first time I had ever been in one and it opened my eyes. It’s so cheesy to say that, but it really changed my life. I don’t feel like I’ve got a voice on my own, but social media has the power to give everyone the opportunity to put something out there: to speak up and make other people see what they miss. And I know that social media gets a lot of backlash lately and I also know that when I post about shelter dogs I might be annoying some followers who’d rather see a selfie or an avocado toast pic, but at the end of the day I don’t care if someone unfollows me if that means a shelter dog gets the chance of a lovely home. It feels like an obligation to me because I’m passionate about it and if you feel passionate about something you should use your voice and speak up.
