SimplySxy catches up with rising star Sabina Mach, who has worked with renowned names such as Steven Seagal, Elijah Wood and Post Malone. Read on to learn more and get to know her better!
When and how did you decide to be an actress?
I started out as a gymnast on an Olympic Gymnastics team which required 10-hour training days after school, and along came my first photoshoots. If you asked a 5-year-old me where I am from, I would say Disneyland; I love that place and spent a lot of time there as a kid, singing and pretending to be a Disney princess. That is how my acting career started.
I performed a lot in kindergarten and sang at all the school parties. I would cry to a sad song or dance to a happy one. In high school, when we lived in London, I performed in the theatre with my mom. The movies like “The Blue Lagoon”, “Endless Love” or “Splendor in the Grass” inspired me. A love story that made me “happy cry”.
As a child, I thought I was witnessing someone’s real life, I didn’t know acting was an actual job. Little did I know that I, too, could make movies one day.
What is the most challenging incident that happened to you on set? And how did you deal with it?
When you are starting out, everyone is always psyching you out, how hard it is and how prepared you need to be. So, I’ve always over prepared to the point of knowing everyone’s lines and have researched every little detail for projects. Imagine my disbelief and shock when I’ve seen unprepared actors, who have been in the business for years, having the time of their lives not even touching the script before they came to set.
And at the same it was the most challenging, I had to lead a bunch of adult, veteran actors through the scenes. I love being in front of the camera and giving different takes, and ways to play the same scene, finding the deep meaning below the surface of the text. And it is very challenging when you want to show more, but you get two takes and you are done, because I always come prepared, like a two take wonder. While the struggling on set actors get a million takes and waste everyone’s time because they are seasoned yet unprepared.
What is the best compliment you have received regarding your work, performance?
I might not show it, but compliments mean a lot to me, it makes me stronger. And even a small remark inspires me to work so much harder. If you just ask me, I’ll take your suggestion and will make it happen.
I’ve done my own stunts for the projects, and after getting a trauma on set, I powered through it. I finished up filming the stunt scenes and the rest of the project. I want to do everything myself, because I believe with the power and desire to learn something, we can do most things ourselves. Nothing more exciting than learning new or mastering an old skill. Parts where extra training before filming is required are my favorite. I’m fearless. The nicest compliment I got despite being around seasoned actors who’ve been in the business for over 30+ years – among them all I owned the scene and stood out the most, making the scene mine.
Do you have any hobbies or interests?
Yes I love animals. What I’m known for is interacting with wild animals. From a fox, to bears, to swans, to bulls, wolves, owls and many more 🙂
I have five yorkies, and I love anything athletic. Tennis, soccer, swimming, rock climbing, volleyball. All sports.
If you could collaborate with anyone past or present, who will it be?
I want to write a song with Post Malone, the Weekend and Skrillex.
Would you rather have the ability to control objects or teleport?
The ability to control time.
What do you not get about guys?
Everything. Especially when they pretend like they want to help, you tell them and they switch the subject. The intrusive questions I get asked by old man. The fact that they have no shame, I wish I had that boldness to. (But not really)
I don’t get girls either.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Sabina. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy is when you wake up, feeling on top of the world, and no matter what you wear you just have THE feeling because you finally love yourself and not what others say or compliment you on.
