Old NIDA buddy Christa Nicola is in LA for the opening of her film, The Pyramid. One month back in Australia after a 10 year acting hiatus she lands a lead in the 21st Century Fox horror flick. And with no time to soak it up, she found herself on set working with Dennis O’Hare, dealing with massive anxiety and a US accent. We chat about how doing the work is the only antidote to nerves, the art of nailing auditions, the long wait from filming to release and how her Greek peasant work ethic keeps her keeping on. While here she relishes being an acting geek and making friends at Erewhon. Her advice to those in Los Angeles: Don’t be a dick - use your peripheral vision!
