Ev­ery video I have made is ba­si­cally im­pro­vis­ing. What­ever comes to mind is what I end up say­ing. I ba­si­cally go through a con­ver­sa­tion in my head and just ver­balise it. It’s just stuff I think of ran­domly. WHAT IS THE IDEA BE­HIND THE AMER­I­CAN AC­CENT YOU USE?

I just wanted to di­ver­sify my­self a bit. It was just a way to be ver­sa­tile. Both girls are very sim­i­lar, ac­tu­ally; the Amer­i­can one just has a dif­fer­ent back­ground. WHAT KIND OF BACK­GROUND DO YOU HAVE IN PER­FORM­ING?

I stud­ied at Afda [film school] in 2008, but had to drop out af­ter a year due to the school fees. Since then, I’ve just been free­lanc­ing, like work­ing be­hind the cam­eras for some pro­duc­tion com­pa­nies. I worked for a pro­duc­tion com­pany for three years un­til last year. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE SINCE THEN?

I started a new job at Fu­sion Me­dia in Oc­to­ber, where I was the pro­duc­tion co­or­di­na­tor of a mu­sic game show called MVP.

Now I just want to fo­cus on ac­tu­ally per­form­ing. That is my pas­sion. 2016 is just go­ing to be about liv­ing my dream. I don’t mind the pro­duc­tion side of things, but I am more of a per­former. So far, I’m do­ing voiceovers for Cool Catz on e.tv, and also do­ing work on a new prank show with one of my friends. – Ge­orge von Berg
