KRISTIN: You have quick growing resume. How did you get interested in acting?

NADIA: I play Larika, who is an elf in this world. She’s a bad girl, who stirs the pot in a big way.

KRISTIN: What do you think viewers will love about this film?

NADIA: Everything!! It’s an original story which I think everyone will instantly appreciate. We’ve got the most masterful cast I’ve ever seen portraying these new, interesting characters that fans will fall in love with. And I mean, the credibility David Ayer brings…the fans will be unbelievably pleased with what he’s done with this film. And don’t let the fantastical elements fool you. It is brutal and gritty and incredibly entertaining.

KRISTIN: When can fans expect to see this film?

NADIA: We’ve got a December 22nd release date on Netflix! It can’t come soon enough!

KRISTIN: You have also modeled in your past. If you weren’t acting, do you think you would be modeling or something else entirely?

NADIA: Oh I would definitely say that I’m a ride or die actor. Sometimes I think I’m a masochist on some level because the rejection is so brutal, but I could never give up on it. Even the small wins feel hugely satisfying.

KRISTIN: Where can we keep up with all your projects online? Social media?

NADIA: I think my IMDb is the most up to date and googleable thing about me in regards to past and upcoming work. I’m not a big social media person, but lord knows I’m trying! It’s nice to have a project that is about to air or be released that I’m psyched about. I always cognizant about promoting that kind of thing.
