Watch out Amy Poehler & Amy Schumer, there is a new blonde funny girl starting to make her mark and steal some laughs in Hollywood: Rory Uphold.
Rory, a former singer who has recently turned her attention to comedy and acting, stars in the popular web series, HelLA, and has been gaining a lot of buzz in the entertainment industry as one of Hollywood’s top “females on the rise in 2016”.
The Levity Ball sat down with Rory to find out more about her career and what’s to come in season two of HelLA…
Well, that’s a cool rumor… how about you just watch one of my videos: www.OnlyinHelLA.com?
Those days are long past me, but they were both exciting and extremely painful. I still love music, but the business side of it wasn’t for me.
I was an actor long before I was a singer, I just caught a lucky break with music so I ended up doing that for a while. When I decided to go back to acting, the comedy thing really came when I started writing my own material. Turns out I have a perspective that lends itself to humor.
They both do. Lame answer, I know. But my mom is Canadian and my dad is American and I just can’t choose. That said, LA has always been my home.
No. If something’s not working, you don’t bail, you fight to make it better.
My mom. She’s the shit.
“When you go for the heart, expect blood.” I think about this all the time.
Consistency. I think that’s the hardest part of pretty much everything I do. It’s not about the first and last day, which is when you typically raise the most money, it’s really about the daily grind in between.
Laughing, hopefully. hah… I have a ton of super talented friends in season 2 that I think will surprise people. Also, HelLA goes to New York for an episode, so that’s fun.
Uh, they don’t… cause I’m not famous!
If there’s anything else you can do, I’d consider it. This is just a rough business and you’ve really got to love the work because there are much easier ways of making money or getting famous.
I hope I’m doing the same things: acting, writing, directing. The truth is, I don’t really know what’s gonna happen next week much less next year. Angie, my tarot reader, could probably shed some insight though. How’s that for being “LA”?
I prefer smoke signals… but there’s always @roryuphold on Twitter.
