So exactly who is “Mya“ from NYGTV web series? Check out the interview with “Boop“ aka Mya from NYGTV below.
1. How did you get started acting with the web series NYGTV (New York Girls TV)?
Answer: I was actually found through the Brooklyn Lesbian hash tag on Instagram by the very talented creator/director Amira Shaunice. I guess she had been doing a little shopping on there in order to fill the main roles.
2. Have you acted before? If so, in what?
Answer: Professionally, never. I’ve always attended performing arts schools because I majored in dance (ballet and modern) but always had a secret love for acting. I would go home and act out movies with my sisters. I also enjoyed watching my classmates take up drama class and wondered if I’d ever give it a shot. I’ve performed many times on stage for dance but only did one play back in Elementary for the story of Strega Nona (a children’s book). I was one of the random townspeople. After finishing High School I was asked by a friend to be featured in two music videos: Interlude De Throw’d and Stars over London which were music videos by LiveSosa. Shout out to him because his music is featured on some of the episodes for NYGTV.
3. Do you plan on making acting a career? What do you do for a living?
Answer: Acting professionally is not something I’ve always planned on doing but I am pretty open to continuing acting classes and working on other projects upon requests based off of the content. As far as what I do for a living it’s nothing to rant about but I’d love to keep that to myself for professional and privacy reasons.
4. How old are you?
Answer: I’m a grown woman. Lol
5. Is your real name Boop?
Answer: Boop isn’t my real name but wouldn’t that be dope?!
6. When is your birthday? What is your horoscope sign?
Answer: My birthday is January 17th which makes me a Capricorn. Also, I’m a rising Sagittarius with my moon in Capricorn. J
7. Are you originally from New York? If so, where?
Answer: Brooklyn, New York. I spent most of my upbringing in these parts: Coney Island, East New York, Flatbush and Bedstuy.
8. What is your ethnicity?
Answer: My mother is Puerto Rican and my father is African American; both Americans from Brooklyn though.
9. What are your favorite foods and hobbies?
Answer: I love bacon. As a matter of fact, I love meat in general. Lol, I’m definitely a meat lover. Give me a medium steak and I’ll melt. I’m also crazy for Ice Cream. As far as hobbies go, I still dance in the privacy of my own home, I write a lot and I also enjoy tweeting with inquiring minds on Twitter. I’m also a music lover and a huge hobby of mine is searching for Chillwave/Retrowave tracks from underground artists on Soundcloud.
10. What is your favorite song out on the radio right now?
Answer: Rihanna – Needed Me
11. Who is your favorite music artist right now?
Answer: J Cole
12. Do you have a favorite LGBT web series besides NYGTV?
13. Who is favorite actor on another web series (if any)?
Answer: I love Jersey Moulin who played “Zoe” on Between Women but that’s because I got to meet her and work with her personally on NYGTV. She’s an amazing person. Shout out to her.
14. Are you family or are you just acting as one for the web series NYGTV?
Answer: If you mean Cam and Mya, no. We’re not related by blood but we still call one another cousins. Sometimes family members come unrelated. However, the woman who plays “Beverly” as Mya’s mother is my aunt on my father’s side.
15. Are you single or taken?
16. What do you like within a significant other or your significant other?
Answer: One trait that I consider a deal breaker is if my significant other doesn’t respect their mother because if you don’t respect your mother, you won’t respect me or any woman for that matter. I understand if things get complicated but the respect for your mother is very important to me.
17. Can we watch you in any other web series soon?
Answer: NYGTV will be the only web series I’ll ever do.
18. Will there be another season of NYGTV, and will you be in it?
Answer: I’m not at liberty to release this information but definitely keep up with us by following @NewYorkGirlsTv on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Also, visit our website NewYorkGirlsTv.Com
19. Anything else you would like to add?
Answer: I’d like to shout out my entire NYGTV family and the crew behind the scenes. Thank you for having me and please stay tuned!
