Happy Birthday: Laura Harring

Unless you have a real passion for making movies, then don’t bother. I had to carry energy and light into every meeting, only to be told, ‘We don’t want you.’ I couldn’t take it personally. You just have to wait, and live for those moments when the casting director likes you. Those words – ‘You’re hired’ – are the best. I would try to remember what I learned in India – everything that happens is a mirror of how you are feeling. If you don’t feel good about yourself, people don’t feel good about you either. When you feel good, people see that and want to help you.

In private, I’m a hippie who follows Buddhism, does yoga, meditates and loves to dance wildly. But when I’m on show, I become a different person. Some actors do not understand that difference, and resent it. I say, ‘Let them give you the jewels, go around with your bodyguard, let them dress you. If you are promoting a film, don’t be afraid of glamor.’
