Filipina British Actress Sara Beatriz


Filipina British Actress Sara Beatriz

It is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy, Sara.  Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?

For me that’s a super complicated question! I’m half Filipina/half British and was born in Hong Kong. I spent my childhood there then lived in India, Turkey and Oxford before reading History at University in London. But home is where the heart is – and that’s in the Philippines 🙂

What inspired you to be an actress?

When I was younger I always dreamt about being an actress but never voiced it out loud because I thought it was crazy. I still don’t feel comfortable saying it. Then when I focused on my future, all the career advice I heard was rooted to following your passion (kind of like how in love you should follow your heart) and that’s when I knew I would move to LA from London.

Do you have a memorable acting experience you can share with us?

A memorable acting experience was my first short film I did (that’s so cutely titled Bubble) where I had to get out of my car distressed and confront a guy I was obsessed with in front of the notorious Paul Smith pink wall on Melrose Avenue in front of around 30 people watching… all with a knife in hand!

How did the idea of KAYA essentials come about?

I attended a talk on how a Filipino organisation (Gawad Kalinga) was cultivating social businesses in the Philippines and how doing business with a heart could alleviate poverty. I had no background in business but had the heart for KAYA and took it from there. I loved sharing the fact that Philippines produced a lot of the world’s coconut oil and when I learnt how many Filipino coconut farmers remain in poverty (the statistics are staggering) I knew I had to do something with coconut oil – plus it’s my number one beauty secret for my hair.

Tell us more about your charity work and how KAYA is involved!

For every KAYA lip balm, a meal is provided to a Filipino child in need through a local feeding programme called Kusina ng Kalinga. The programme feeds up to 20,000 public school and street children every day. And just as how KAYA wants customers to purchase with a purpose, where possible the ingredients are purchased from Filipino family and social businesses and farmers cooperatives.

Is there something you have achieved so far that you are most proud of?

I would have to say KAYA is a major achievement. But also perfecting my roast chicken and being a dog mama.

Have you done something embarrassing before that seems funny now?

In school I joined MUN… model united nations… because I thought it was an after school activity on modelling. I was so confused why it was held in the computer lab and why my brother was there too. Oops.

Which is the funniest or lamest way a guy has tried to know you? 

One guy had a ‘getting to know each other’ game that had too many complicated rules for a first date or even just in general. I kept thinking, why don’t we just have a conversation?

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Sara. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”? 

Confidence with nice lip balm on your lips 😉
