Magnolia, the new music video / short film from the group Jakalope was released on Monday. It was written, directed and edited by RT!, who was just nominated for 11 MMVAs at the Much Music Video Awards ceremony this past weekend. We shot this back in mid-March. It was a 16 hour overnight shoot, starting at 4pm on the first day and wrapping at 8am on the next. Our location was Black Creek Pioneer Village (similar to King’s Landing for you New Brunswick folk), which gave it that wonderful historical look. I always find period pieces a lot of fun to shoot and this was no different. Our costumes were wonderful, and I was surprised at just how warm a shawl can keep you when you’re outside in the middle of march at 3am in the rain for 3 hours without your coat. Who says actors don’t earn their stripes?? We fought hard for this one.

This wasn’t supposed to happen. I’ve always maintained that I’m an actress, not a model. This was for two reasons. One, I didn’t want to dilute my brand. I didn’t want to be seen as just another pretty face doing whatever I could to get in front of a camera. I much rather wanted to be known for my talent, which I’ve always believed in. Two, I’ve never seen myself as the model type. Industry standards require you to be 5’8″ and above, with clear/perfect skin, perfect teeth, and can fit into a sample size 4 or smaller. I’m quite happy with my body, but I don’t fit those stats. My skin is good, but not perfect. I like my smile, but my teeth aren’t perfect. I’m a size 6 or sometimes an 8. I’m good with that. I really don’t need to lose any weight. The only thing I’ve got going for me is that I’m 5’8″, right on the dot. Just barely tall enough. So for those reasons, I’ve never tried to be a model.
