What were the key steps you took to become an actress?

I think actor training is essential and requires ongoing effort. That's why I pursued a Dramatic Arts degree at the National University of the Arts in Argentina. I also recently finished a 4-week acting for film course in English at the New York Film Academy in Italy. It was an amazing experience that took me on a three-month journey across Europe, where I visited countries like the Netherlands, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Greece.

What was your experience like at the New York Film Academy?

The experience was amazing! I had planned it ahead of time, and it totally paid off. The course level, teachers, and classmates were top-notch, making it a super fun and educational time. Plus, getting to live and film in Florence, Italy, was a dream come true – it's one of my favorite cities! Filming in its artsy streets was unforgettable. My main goal was to improve my acting skills for English-language films, so I could work on international projects. I'm thrilled to see those opportunities starting to open up for me.

Do you have any rituals that you perform before auditioning?

Before I perform or audition, I have a ritual. I start by warming up my body and voice because it's important to be physically, mentally, and emotionally ready to connect with the scene.

"I listen to music to get into the mood of the character quickly."

And when I audition, I always analyze the script to understand the character and project tone. Practicing different ways of saying the lines helps me remember and deliver them effectively.

If you could swap lives with any actress or actor, who would it be and why?

I would love to swap lives with Cate Blanchett or Emma Stone. Their careers fascinate me because of the amazing projects they've been a part of, the directors they've collaborated with, and the balance they strike between work and personal life. It must be thrilling to experience their rehearsal routines, character preparation, and to be a part of challenging films with big productions.

What would be your ultimate dream acting opportunity?

My ultimate dream is to become an actress on the international stage, starring in films and series that inspire me creatively and push my acting skills to new heights. I want to work on projects that challenge me and let me explore my creative side. Contributing my unique perspective and experience to these projects is important to me.

What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

In the acting world, there are many highs and lows, so having a strong passion is crucial. If I had to give advice to aspiring actors, I'd say that besides studying and preparing, it's important to enrich yourself as a person. Explore life, travel, meet people, and learn about yourself. Everything you discover about the world and yourself can help you grow as an actor.

And the latest news? Her recent works include starring in the series "Have Mercy on Us," and in the short film "Torquemada Mon Amour" at the Red Blood Festival. Carla has also dabbled in the world of commercials, representing brands like Pepsi, Burger King, Mercado Pago, and Ford. Get inspired with Carla's professional Instagram:
