Interview with Calpernia Addams


Monika: Today's interview is with Calpernia Addams, an American author, actress, musician, and a spokesperson and activist for transgender rights and issues. Hello Calpernia!
Calpernia: Hello, Monika!
Monika: Having so many talents you seem to be more focused on acting. Which film directors or movies are your inspirations?
Calpernia: Well, Frank Pierson was a legendary writer and director going back many decades who eventually came to direct the film about my life called "Soldier's Girl". He has been the most personally influential director in my life, and if you look back at his body of work, anyone would see why he is very inspiring to me as an artist.
On a deep and personal level, I am inspired by the films of Marilyn Monroe. I know it can be a cliché to say that one likes "Marilyn", but I do feel a deeper personal connection to her story as a woman and an artist after studying her life, films and myth-making process in depth. Living in Hollywood, I pass by the places she knew and went almost every day, so she is sort of in the air.
