Q&A with Actress Kacey Rohl

 You may have seen Kacey Rohl as Prudence in this spring’s Red Riding Hood and in AMC’s hit show The Killing, as the best friend of murdered teen Rosie Larson. She’ll appear alongside Glee‘s Cory Monteith in the upcoming film Sisters and Brothers, and based on her track record, you’ll be seeing a lot more of her soon. We asked her a few Qs, and we kind of love her now:
I Heart Daily: How did you know that you wanted to act?
Kacey Rohl: I think I knew from the first rehearsal of my mom’s that I attended, but I didn’t tell myself that it was legitimate and possible until my senior year of high school.

IHD: You’ve had some dark roles recently! How do you put yourself in the mindset to play those parts?
KR: Prudence in Red Riding Hood came very easily to me, oddly enough. Acting mean (in that way) was easy for me. Sterling in The Killing was more difficult. She was more complex and damaged. For her, I went back to what my time in high school was like and really went to those icky 16-year-old self esteem places. I also used a lot of music to bring me down. The AntlersThe Cinematic Orchestra and I also got my best friend to compile a list of her favorite sad tunes and I used that to make me think of Rosie.

NightLight: Shop to End Trafficking

NightLight is an international organization that helps sexually exploited women and children transform their lives. Through alternative employment and life-skills training, NightLight assists women, men and children who have been negatively impacted by the sex industry.
Trafficking of humans is the second-largest criminal industry in the world — and each year, an estimated 15,000 foreign nationals are trafficked into the United States (that’s not including the 20,000 US citizens trafficked within the country, according to a US Department of Justice report).

RED Hearts: How to Be a Good Intern

RED Hearts are guests posts on I Heart Daily from the authors of RED: Teenage girls in America write on what fires up their lives today.
Today’s RED Hearts post is from Cindy Morand, 22, in New York, NY, who’s interning at the Federal Reserve this summer:

My favorite site for information on internships­ — they rank hundreds — is Vault. There’s even a “Top 10 Most Unusual Experiences” category. (NASA or Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, anyone?)

Should you find yourself in a seriously air-conditioned office this summer, here are a few quick strategies (if not paychecks) I’ve picked up toward making the most of your internship:

★ Find a Mentor, Make Friends. Network with colleagues to learn about the different roles in your department — people like it when you show interest in what they’ve chosen to do with their lives.
