While Katrina Norman may be a force of nature she has caused way less property damage than hurricane Katrina and is much better looking than Stormin’ Norman Schwarzkopf.
This week’s TDQ Q&A is with actress and dancer Katrina Norman. Katrina spoke to us about her work on VH1’s “Hit the Floor,” her plans for the future and following her gut. Here is this week’s TDQ Q&A With Katrina Norman:
The Daily Quarterly: Who was your favorite actress growing up?
Katrina Norman: That’s a toss up between Julia Roberts and Lucille Ball.
TDQ: Who was your favorite dancer growing up?
KN: I had several influential dancers in my life but I can remember wanting to be just like Tina Caspary.
TDQ: What made you want to be in show business?
KN: I simply loved entertaining people!
TDQ: What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten?
KN: Always follow your gut.
TDQ: What’s the worst advice you’ve ever gotten?
KN: Don’t follow your gut.
TDQ: Who are your influences?
KN: I love Rachel McAdams, Amy Adams, Jennifer Anniston just to name a few.
TDQ: Besides “90210,” you’ve also appeared in “Castle” and “No Strings Attached.” Who spent more time in their makeup chair to look TV good-looking, Nathan Fillion or Ashton Kutcher?
KN: I’m going to have to say Ashton simply because he enjoys chatting with everyone so he’d take longer.
TDQ: What can you tell us about your work as Devil Girl on VH1’s “Hit the Floor”
Momma says Devil Girls is the devil. But we like them, Momma! Can we get anyone a water?
KN: It was very rewarding and extremely hard work. The Devil Girls worked over forty hours a week on and off camera. We performed about a dozen dances during the season ranging in various styles, filming at different venues throughout Los Angeles. It’s one of the more memorable jobs I’ve done and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Hit The Floor family.
TDQ: What project are you working on now?
KN: I just got back from Canada where I wrapped up the feature film “Strings.” I play the sassy role of Kerry opposite Lucas Till.
TDQ: What advice would you give to a young aspiring actress/dancer?
KN: Never give up on your dreams. Be prepared to face your fears, to work hard and grow a lot. Keep your head high, your morals intact and never believe in the negative crap.
TDQ: Where do you see yourself in five years?
KN: Well I’d entertain audiences ’til the day I die, so in five years I plan on still living my dream as big as I can imagine it!
