Cat Forrest who plays 'Cleopatra, the Psychic Queen' on 'The Smartlys' was recently interviewed by Susan J. Farese, SJF Communications.
SJF: Tell us about your character in The Smartlys (both past and future seasons).
CF: I played Philesha the Psychic Princess in the 2019 version of The Smartlys, back before the pandemic, when we filmed in front of a live audience.
For the latest version of The Smartlys, in Season 2 (which is in development), my character is Cleopatra the Psychic Queen and I live in the SmartlyVille complex.
I am very flamboyant and love to make people laugh. I have had very similar characteristics in other parts. I am very flirty and be-bop around the apartment building always trying to cheer people up.
I love vibrant colors, particularly hot pink and gold and always wear flowers in my hair. I am a psychic and come out with the most hilarious antics to keep peeps on their toes.
One of the things that make me tick is passion, hence I wear a lot of purple. My favorite food is Italian which always spices things up. And I make great meatballs.
SJF: What are three things about you we don’t know about ‘you’…(not your character)!
CF: I take belly dancing and romp around with castanets! I also have an interest in kickboxing which eventually made me hurt my knees, But c’est la vie…I take many risks.
SJF: What compelled you to audition for The Smartlys?
CF: I was compelled to audition for The Smartlys as I have played wild and crazy roles in the past and feel very comfortable stepping over my limits.
SJF: Words of wisdom/advice for actors?
CF: Words of wisdom to other actors…be more of yourself and have no boundaries. Tada!
SJF: How can we follow you on social media?
