Meet Reese Witherfork*, an actress who moved to Boston to try to make it big. Meet Reese yourself this summer in Sleuth: Case of the Dead Paparazzi.
Interviewer: What brought you to Boston?
Reece Witherfork: LA was too sunny for my fair complexion and New York is full of mean people. So I thought, let’s give Boston a try!
Interviewer: Do you like the city so far?
Reece Witherfork: I do! The Uber drivers are really nice and there’s always a place to get a good iced coffee.
Interviewer: You’ve worked in LA before. Do you prefer east coast or west coast?
Reece Witherfork: There’s nothing like the glamour of LA! Everyone’s got a dream and the lucky ones get to see it come true. But they’re all very tan on the west coast. I’m definitely an east coast girl. The lobster rolls are far better over here too.
Interviewer: Our city’s got some great theaters. Have you ever considered doing a play here?
Reece Witherfork: Oh sure! Once I get over my stage fright, that is. Something about an audience makes me clam up. Film acting, obviously, comes very naturally to me. That big, empty lens is just so comforting, you know?
Interviewer: What’s the most exciting thing to happen to you in this city?
Reece Witherfork: I live a very exciting and fascinating life, of course. One time when I was getting a frozen yogurt someone recognized me from the Colgate commercial I did last year. I got to give her my autograph and everything. She didn’t have any paper or pens so I signed in lipstick on a napkin, but I’m sure she’s kept it for future celebrity memorabilia.
Interviewer: Where’s your favorite place in the city to hang out?
Reece Witherfork: Top of the Hub, for sure. You can see the whole city from up there. Plus the bartenders are cute!
Interviewer: What do you like to do in your spare time?
Reece Witherfork: I’m a huge fan of adult coloring books, but most of my spare time is spent reading scripts and talking to my agent.
Interviewer: How long do you think you’ll stay in Boston?
Reece Witherfork: Oh a few more years, at least! The film scene in this area is really picking up so I’ll get plenty of work.
