S01/E10 - Diversity in Film: A Conversation with AnnaLynne McCord
TwoOhSix.com presents the first ever TwoOhSix Podcast Series, Diversity in Film: Conversations from Within the Industry. AnnaLynne McCord is an American actress, writer, director and producer. She is a model, a TEDx speaker, an advocate, and an activist. My conversation with AnnaLynne goes deep into her own personal journeys with diversity in film, mental health, and sexual assault and how those experiences have had an impact on her life and career. It was amazing and emotional to listen as she talked about how who she was as a person and what she was going through in life had a major impact and influence on the characters she created for films like Excision and A Soldier's Revenge.
AnnaLynne also discusses her involvement in the global fight against human trafficking as a co-founder of Together1heart with Somaly Mam as well as the upcoming virtual relaunch of The Love Storm. Human trafficking is a cause I feel very strongly about having participated in fund raising efforts a few years ago so having an opportunity to speak with AnnaLynne about that and about diversity in film was an opportunity I am very thankful to have had. Overall, this was such an honest and intimate conversation about some very important topics and also a perfect way to wrap up this interview series.
Diversity in Film: Conversations from Within the Industry is hosted by TwoOhSix.com founder Marc Morin and features conversations with actors, directors, producers, film critics and more all discussing their thoughts on diversity in an industry that has been in need of some new perspectives and fresh voices. The podcast series launches on Monday, May 11th and will continue weekly with new episodes released every Monday.
