Radio Host Louis Velazquez had the opportunity to have Actress
Joanna Ke on the Show.
coming actress Joanna Ke is quickly becoming known as a power house
in the independent film community. In “References”, a romantic
comedy about a group of 20-somethings in a small town, Ke steals
every scene with her portrayal of diabolical Cora. Recently, she
co-starred with Sarah Chalke and Leisha Hailey in “Maneater” playing
a character completely opposite to her role in “References”, showing
her versatile talents. “Maneater” is a Lifetime television
miniseries directed by Timothy Busfield and based on the book of the
same name by Gigi Levangie.
Ironically, Joanna rarely watches
romantic comedies in her free time, leaning more towards sci-fi and
fantasy as she’s had a lifelong fascination with the paranormal and
cryptozoology. However, when it comes to her work, the most
important thing for her is not the genre, but to have fun with the
character, the people she’s working with, and the story.
Ke’s voracious passion for acting
led her to study with over 15 acting coaches. One of her primary
mentors is an Emmy-award winning producer. Her extensive training,
professionalism, and laser-sharp focus on-set afforded her a stellar
reputation in the acting community in Arizona.
2009, she made the move to LA to further her career and, within 2
months, booked her first gig. She signed with manager Scottie Ward
of CCM in July. With the indie horror flick “The Crypt” currently
out on DVD, she recently completed a run in the play “8 Shades of
Alice.” Her next projects include starring in the title role of the
short “Trixie Woo” shooting in November, the release of the feature
thriller “Avè Maria” on DVD in fall 2010, the release of the comic
to film adaptation “Villikon Chronicles: Genesis of Evil” as well as
subsequent comics drawn in her likeness, and, of course, procuring
theatrical representation in California.
