Five actors set to take over your TV
Amazon’s Nocturne (13th Oct.) teams Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney with breakout Madison Iseman. The latter connives her way to try and get ahead of her sister at their prestige music school. Iseman also plays a bubbly social climber in Disney’s Clouds (16th Oct.), based on the real-life journey of a cancer patient trying to get his singing career off the ground before it’s too late.
Originally from: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Seen in: Nocturne on Amazon, and Clouds on Disney +.
What drew you to acting?
I’ve always been addicted to telling stories. Growing up I constantly went to movies at the cinema. I remember just watching in awe and thinking, “I have to do that one day.”
Describe your latest project in a short sentence.
Clouds is based on the true story of Zach Sobiech, who passed away in 2013 from osteosarcoma and the impact his music had on his friends, family, and the world.
Nocturne is about a young pianist, Juliet, who discovers a dead girl’s mysterious journal containing demonic diagrams that, over time, push her to do the worst and overtake her sister at their prestigious arts school.
In what ways are you like the character you play?
[In Clouds], I play Amy Adamle who is actually a real person and only a few years older than me. She and Zach dated in high school. For one, we both have a cheeky smile and I’m convinced that’s the real reason I was cast to play her. She is one of the strongest and kindest people I know. I’ll forever be honoured that I was able to play her and can only hope I can deliver up to her standards so that the essence of who she is shines through the screen.
In Nocturne, I play Vivian, who is pretty ruthless. We don’t have too much in common other than our drive and passion for what we do. She’s a badass, I love that about her, but she also makes some extremely questionable decisions.
What’s your dream role?
I’ve always loved fantasy. One day I would love to be a part of something that has its entire own world.
The song I have on repeat is…
She – Harry Styles.
