Rachele Brooke Smith Talks About Filming Legend of the White Dragon
Illuminerdi: Any quote about your character, your excitement for the project, and maybe a tease about the armor. Nothing to spoilers but just enough to get the fans buzzing
Rachele Brooke Smith: I’ve dreamed of playing a role like “Iris Mane” since I was a little kid, and feel so honored and grateful to be able to play this character alongside legends, like Jason David Frank and Jason Faunt, who are my “partners in crime” in this movie, as well as my new “brothers” in real life.
Rachele Brooke Smith: I grew up a pretty scared, anxious, and insecure little girl from Phx, AZ… and movies like the one that we’re making “Legend of the White Dragon” inspired me so much and ultimately helped me have the courage to completely transform my life.
Through all the ups and downs of life, moving to LA when I was 18 (not knowing anyone or what I was doing, feeling terrified, but also so lit up to make my dreams a reality…) Even through I went through some really discouraging & very difficult challenges… I just kept trying “TO ALWAYS DO THE BRAVE THING” and I actually ended up living out my childhood dream of being an actress and producer, on films that I really believed in, and that help can inspire and empower others. (everyone told me this was impossible… so happy I didn’t listen).
I’m on a mission play HERO characters in films & tv shows that inspire, entertain, and transform the world, and in “real life” as “Rachele Brooke Smith,” do all I can to help inspire and empower others to believe in their ability overcome the challenges they face, and choose to play the HERO of their own life story, everyday.
