“Make demos in high school, do anything acting related that you can, so that when you are in the position to show it to someone that can work with you on getting into the industry, you have all the materials for success.”
Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at MAX Agency — a successful Toronto talent agency representing men, women and children.
This week we’ll be showcasing the amazingly hardworking talent on our roster:
An introduction to Ruchi:
“I was born in California but then moved to Nigeria. My family is originally Nigerian on my mum’s side, so we lived there for a while. When I was 9 years old, I went to boarding school in Switzerland and lived there until I came to Canada a few years ago for university.
It is difficult to specifically pinpoint a place that I am from, as there are people who are genuinely from these countries that I have been to at different stages of my life, and lived there all their lives. I love having been a part of so many different cultures, as I can relate to people from different areas in the world.
I am an actor, singer-songwriter and producer, and have been working on my craft since I received a piano at the age of five. It’s a great experience to bring all the cultures I love around the world into one piece of art. I am also a film writer; I have written a few short and feature-length films, and am working on getting them made. I got into film writing because I enjoy being involved in all aspects of the creative process.”
How did you get into modelling/acting?
“I got into acting through watching a lot of television as a child and enjoying the process of being able to play someone completely different to you. I then got into theatre when I was nine, and eventually made the transition into film and TV when I was 17.
Acting always felt like a job that I could see the results from hard work being put into a role, and entertain other people while doing so. Thus far, I have thoroughly enjoyed everything I have seen.”
How has your experience been with MAX?
“MAX has been very kind to me since I got with the agency. They treat all their talent fairly and give us the attention we need.“
What do you like to do in your spare time?
“I write films, produce/write music and play video games during my spare time.”
What is your dream role?
“Probably a role on one of the films I’ve written, or a lead role in a long-lasting successful movie franchise or TV show.”
Best advice for someone looking to get into the industry?
“Do as much of it by yourself/with friends as possible. Make demos in high school, do anything acting related that you can, so that when you are in the position to show it to someone that can work with you on getting into the industry, you have all the materials for success.“
