Interview with actress and director Alex Lombard

By Jessica Starks,

Writer and actress Alex Lombard has worked in all fields of the industry and has accomplished many things at a very young age. She started out starring in plays in her hometown and moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream. Her film and television credits have allowed her to collaborate with people like Dominic Cooper and Christopher Nolan. The Charleston native has starred in movies such as Inception and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. In addition, her small screen credits include Big Love and How I Met Your Mother. She also directed her own film entitled, Sophie.

The Celebrity Cafe: What inspired you to become an actress?
Alex Lombard: Well, I think it's something I've always wanted to do. You just sort of know.

TCC:Well, we also know that you directed your own film (Sophie). What was it like directing your own film rather than simply starring in it? How was that different for you?
AL: It was really great, I had the best time and, it was very empowering and I learned so much. I can't say enough good things about it, it was just an incredible learning experience

TCC: So is that something you could see yourself doing again?
AL: I definitely would like to direct again for sure.

TCC: Your movie, Morning Calm, discusses the concept of love lost. What was it about that script that made you want to pursue the role?

AL: Well, my writing partner wrote that, so of course I jumped at the opportunity to work with him because I wanted to support him anyway that I could. I was really excited to be able to collaborate with him [because] that was his first thing he directed.

TCC:What has been your favorite role so far?

AL: I probably couldn't pick just one, but the role I played in the film I directed was really special. I wrote it and was able to act in it, so that was pretty special.

TCC: I see that you've also starred in some TV shows. Do you find that you prefer movies over TV?

AL: No, not necessarily. I think they're both really wonderful in their own way.

TCC: What projects are you working on right now?

AL: Well right now I'm working on finishing my second pilot and my feature that I'm going to be directing as well.

TCC: When will those be out?

AL: I'm not sure yet when those will come out.

TCC: What advice would you give to other aspiring actors/actresses?

AL: I would have to say not to give up. If you're going do it, make sure it's something you love enough to do no matter what anybody else says.
