Kaleina Cordova is a young actress originally from Florida that has just moved to Hollywood to continue pursing her acting career. The beautiful actress has recently been seen in the hit movie, Step Up Revolution and television series, The Glades.
Miss Cordova took some time while running around in the land of the stars to chat about her career, celebrity crushes, fashion and how she is finding the Hollywood scene…
How has the Internet helped your career move forward?
The internet has been like a friend to me, I come to it with all my problems and confusion. Besides that I’m constantly watching YouTube videos of movie B-rolls, behind the scenes footage, audition tapes, etc. They all provide insight.
Who is your celebrity crush right now?
That’s always a juicy question! Right now I have to say Jamie Campbell Bower – he’s a killer musician and actor.
What would you like to be remembered for?
Acting wise, I would love to be remembered for my role versatility. As a person, I would just love to make a difference in someone’s life somehow; even if it’s just one person remembering me that’s enough.
What charities are close to your heart?
There’s a great charity back home [Florida] called Caring Couture. It’s a non-profit scarf organization that is trying to empower employment opportunities for people with special needs. Payton, a child with Down syndrome, hand painted every silk scarf in the collection. I have this strong desire to help people that deserve a brighter light. That’s another benefit of this industry; you can use the spotlight to promote things that are more important. One single person doesn’t need millions of dollars to buy trivial things. You hear a lot about charities that only contribute, like, %20 of its donations to the actual cause and that’s deceiving. I want to promote charities that are genuine and selfless. I aspire to construct a charity people can depend on someday.
What trends in fashion do you LOVE and HATE?
Honestly, I’m getting tired of everything being see through and cropped! I’m not a huge follow of trends but I do love seeing people get creative with their sense of style because I know I am! I love layering and mix n matching patterns!
And finally, what are some of your upcoming Fall “glam” tips to look fabulous?
WEAR BOOTS! I love boots, people used to make fun of me in middle school beacuse I used to wear combat boots (prior to them being “in”) I found them at Goodwill one day and though they added a little something to my floral dress! I also love wearing deep plum lipstick in the winter. When in doubt throw on some lipstick and a pair of boots!
