Today I would like to direct you to an interview with Apolonia Davalos, executive producer of APOLONIAD Productions and actress in the movie The Good Bookthe first evangelical silent feature to be released since sound was added to movies. Apolonia sat down with Miranda A. Uyeh who conducts interviews on her blog To Be a Person.

While I won’t give all her thoughts away, listen to Apolonia’s wonderful insight:

Morality, divine inspiration, humility, leadership, followership, love, generosity, and an iron-willed work ethic are preeminent principles to nurture and sustain for the actor and the career.

Christianity is a way of life! Religion and spirituality go hand in hand. Daily reflection on scripture, going to mass, and for myself praying the Rosary, are all principles and practices that sustain my life! Without these graces, I would not be present to the fullness of life, I’d be absent. And it is the ultimate responsibility of the actor TO BE PRESENT!

Check out the whole interview here! You’ll be blessed by Apolonia’s BEaUtiful spirit of creativity and her heart for the Lord!

Blessings of ARTistry, CREATivity & BEaUty, Jody
