I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Roche’ about two years ago on a television set. My first impression of her was a sweet spirit. We clicked immediately. I loved her fire, her tenacity, and her drive. She inspired me and continues to inspire me to this day to push towards my dreams. Her drive is not only for herself but also for her son. Being in this uncertain industry is already a hard, but doing it with a special needs son is phenomenal.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” ~Philippians 4:13
Roche’ got started in this industry at a very early age when she began modeling and rapping. She got serious about this industry when she moved to LA in 1999 to pursue acting.
“It’s always nice to be nice”
“I’m not HEARTless, just using my heartLESS.”
What excites her about the industry is being able to express her creativity through words, music, action, and allowing others to participate in her journey. Roche’ focuses on writing and filmmaking. She has recently cast and film her own film.
Roche’ has taken several classes and participated in workshops, but mainly she has gotten her training from being on set as a Stand-In, Photo Double, and being a part of the core team of Uniformed Police Officers. It’s on the job training or a paid intern. Every project she is on she receives wisdom from directors, actors, and crew. You know when you are meant to be someplace when you soak up all the information like a sponge.
Coming up for Roche’ is another script that she wrote because her father said so. When your parents say write, you write. She also is flirting with the writing a sequel to her current film, #PinkPanties. The film left mouths open and lingering questions that need to be answered.
You can follow her for more information and her projects.
