FIVE QUESTIONS FOR CECE:
1. What was your path to becoming an actor?
I started acting in high school and fell in love with it the moment I performed my first play in front of an audience! The more I've studied and worked on it, the more excited and passionate I get about this art form. I can't imagine doing anything else with my life!
2. Where do you hope to be in five years?
In five years I hope to be a cast member on Saturday Night Live. Creating and performing sketch comedy is my passion and I hope to be doing it full time in five years!
3. What are the five films that have influenced you the most?
Zoolander, Nacho Libre, Get Out, The Office, Parks & Recreation (I know the last 2 are TV shows, but I'm a rule breaker).
4. Who are your biggest acting icons and influences?
Steve Carell is definitely my idol! I love how hilarious he can be, but he is also so moving in more dramatic roles. I also love Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler, and Tina Fey with all my heart.
5. What is something you recently realized that you can't believe you didn't realize earlier?
That when that obnoxious kid said "present" instead of "here" when they were taking attendance in middle school, he meant "present" like "here in the present moment," not "present" like "his presence is a present." Yikes. I'm really not that stupid, I swear.
