After reading the script I was given an option to either shave off all my hair or use the bald cup but I wanted to connect more and immerse myself with the character so I decided to go all out for it”.

“My character was a young girl who in the pursuit of love and happiness discovered she had a terminal illness. It was very challenging because I had to immerse myself into Toni’s character and it obviously wasn’t an easy role, as I had to play a very sick and bubbly girl at the same time.


The switch between characters was fast paced. But thanks to the amazing cast, crew and the producer who made the task less tedious than it would have been”.


“Swings” is an emotional yet exciting biopic story which projects love, chance and choice, a mysterious fate causes an exasperated duo to realize and fight the feelings they have for each other.
