It’s rare these days to find people that are truly driven and passionate about their lives. Especially pretty girls. Often beautiful women get caught up in the glamour and luxury of being able to have the world handed to them for being attractive. Honestly, you can’t really blame them that there is a world with a silver platter easily accessible simply for looking good. Society created that. It’s safe to say that being gorgeous can also be a downfall. However, being able to commend somebody who thinks the total opposite is a beautiful thing, in addition to the physical beauty. This holds true for actress and model Christa Elise Graziano for she accepts all challengers in the war for taking the world by storm.
And she’ll also look good while doing it.
The star powered mixed breed has a rap sheet that speaks for itself. Just for starters she’s been featured in Jet Magazine as their Beauty Of The Week, has been featured in a host of music videos for major artists and musicians (one being Money To Blow featuring Drake), and was recently the leading actress in Food & Liquor II rapper Lupe Fiasco’s Bitch Bad video.
Needless to say, Christa makes moves.
What’s more intriguing about the gracious Graziano is that she wasn’t satisfied with being a video vixen.
“After being here [Miami] and getting several videos under my belt, I needed more of a challenge and realized I had more potential, so I made the transition from the urban market into the commercial and acting world.“ says the Fort Myers, Florida bred cutie.
Being a video girl is not the end of the line for her by any means. Because she has become more focused on her career as an actress Christa has become more meticulous about the videos she chooses to do. She only wants to participate in roles that carry her as a subject and not as an objective image of a woman. Building her resume in the film industry, to learn the ins and outs of production, she’s worked as an assistant to renowned video directors Gil Green and Derick G. In conjunction with behind the camera work, she has also been training separately via independent film roles and acting classes. In fact, she has just wrapped her first leading role in an independent film entitled The Caribbean Heist by Director Max Sainvil. The film features former NBA player and VH1 Basketball Wives star Eric Williams.
We asked a few questions just to end off the interview on a light note.
