An Interview with Stephanie


TE: What is your name?

Natalie Stavola

TE: Where were you born?

Danbury, Connecticut

TE: At what age did you first realize you wanted to be an actor/actress?

I realized I wanted to be an actor around the age of 6.

TE: What was your first time in front of an audience like?

I don’t remember the first time in front of an audience, I was four, and even before then I was always performing infront of my family. I know I’ve always loved it, and I’ve always wanted to be the best at, well, whatever I was doing.

TE: Where did you originally hear about Mrs. Jackson’s “Truly Everlasting” The Movie and what drew your attention to this project?

I heared about Mrs. Jackson’s project through the website, I was incredibly skeptical at first, but I was so glad when I got the part and began working on the set!!

TE: What has been the most challanging part of translating your character from the book to the big screen?
The most challenging part with my character, Stephanie, was just really trying to figure out where she comes from. It was interesting to paint her background and find out if she was loud and outgoing because she was hiding something and afraid of being alone, or if that’s just the way she was brought up to be.

TE: How has it been working with the Cast and Crew and with Mrs. Jackson herself?

The cast and crew through this project have become great friends and Mrs Jackson is one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Everyone is incredibly encouraging and it was nice working with people that have a great sense of humor, since I tend to be goofy a lot.

TE: What did you learn from this production? What do you hope to take away from this experience?

I learned to trust my instincts more through working in this project and I hope to keep in touch with everyone that I worked with. I really do hope that every one of them meets success in their lives.

TE: What are your plans after filming is done?

Keep reading Mrs. Jackson’s books (I love romance novels!!) and keep acting. My plans are pretty simple: enjoy life.

TE: Anything you want to say to the fans of Mrs. Jackson that are eagerly awaiting this film?

You’re going to love it, there was a lot of heart, soul, and energy put into this, and you can tell!
