The All About E star Mandahla Rose talks about similarities between her character, filming in 38+ degrees, and following her path.

Mandahla Rose tackles the role of E, perfectly portraying the struggles and decisions the sexy DJ faces throughout All About E.

The young Australian actress discussed with LOTL character development and filming experiences that E has many lessons to teach the audience.

At what age did you develop an interest in acting? Do you have a preference for stage or screen acting?

I have wanted to be an actor since I was tiny. I adore screen acting more on the stage, but in saying that, I still love the location. It’s the subtleties in the screen that I enjoy the most.

What sparked your interest in taking on the role of E?

I remember reading the character synopsis and thinking that E was me. I wanted so much to tell her story. I could see how she might be seen as the ‘bad girl’, but I didn’t see that; I saw a girl that was lost, and I wanted to be her voice.

Do you see similarities between yourself and the character of E?

Most definitely. I think many people would be able to see similarities between E and themselves. Her story is, in part, everyone’s story.

Did you borrow any personal life experiences to understand E’s character better?

I think that with every character I have taken on, I have borrowed from my own experiences. I feel that, for me, it is what makes a believable performance.

Which scene did you have the most fun filming? Why?

This is such a difficult question to answer. I think back on filming, and I am going through every scene, and I had fun shooting every stage, from running after a plane on a 38-plus degree day to being a passenger in Matt’s car on a rainy day. I had a blast doing it all; it’s my dream job and my happy place.

What lessons can the audience learn from E and her development throughout the film?

One of the many lessons I learned from E was to be true to myself and follow my own path. It is an important lesson and a difficult one. I like to think that there is something that everyone can take away from this film.
