Who are you?
Yo wuts gucci, I’m Sam Aotaki, and i am an actress, model and dancer
Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California
How did you get involved in Acting?
Well I started out wanting to model and dance, after I wouldn’t grow taller than 5'2 people started to suggest I should try acting, after that I started taking acting classes and fell in love with it so now that's the main thing I want to do
When you were a kid what did you see yourself doing?
Honestly I still remember being in kindergarten and being asked that,
I always answered i wanted to be a profession boxer and/or muy thai fighter
Who motivates you?
My mom, she is one of the most independent and motivated, and driven women i know
She really inspires me, she left home when she was 17 and just started hustling to get to where she is now, so it just shows that if she can do it, i can do it
What are your favorite movies?
Oh man that’s a hard question; I can watch Bronson over and over again,
Forrest Gump as well, I love The Devil's Double and also District 9
I don’t know I really like movies that make you feel something, mostly dramas
As for comedies though, I like stuff like jackass or 21 jump street, just something mindless
Who are your favorite actors or actresses?
I think my favorite actor is Tom Hardy; every film he is in he completely changes himself
so much to the point you don’t even know it's him, same with Christian Bale, also Daniel Day Luis. I really respect them
Favorite food places to eat at?
I’m pretty open to anything, my defaults are Fred 62 and Home in Los feliz, or anywhere in little Tokyo
What do you like to do on your free time?
When I have some free time I try and meditate and do some yoga, get myself grounded again, other than that I try and see my homies since I’m usually busy, or I just lounge around the house with my dog
What was your first job?
My first big gig was when I was 18 and I booked a Toyota commercial that aired during the super bowl, that was pretty dope
