Italia Ricci: Pretty Baby

Italia Ricci’s performance in the hit ABC Family show Chasing Life is awe-inspiring. 

The show follows a young woman, April Carver, after she has been given the devastating news that she has cancer. Italia has become a major inspiration to all of the individuals who are actually battling this disease, and they have become an inspiration to her as well.

Italia’s amazing personality doesn’t go away when production for the show stops. She is an amazing representation of a person truly being beautiful from the inside out.

Her fiancée, Robbie, is a lucky, lucky man, and we were fortunate enough to catch up to her and talk to her a little bit about who The Italia Ricci really is.
shuString: Can you talk about landing the role on Chasing Life an d a bit about the interview process? Did you do anything unique to show you would be perfect for the role?
Italia Ricci: I had a couple of auditions, a callback, then a screen test. The process was pretty standard. I wasn’t offered the show or anything. I didn’t really do anything unique on purpose to show that I could play April. But I did go to my first audition after passing out from getting my shots to qualify for my green card. I’m terrible with needles, so I was totally green in the face and barely even remember the session. I’m not sure exactly what it was they saw in that first audition, but whatever it was I’m grateful for it.
shuString: Can you talk about some of the challenges in filming?
Italia: Days can get pretty long on occasion, especially when you’re filming scenes that are more emotionally exhausting, and you’re having to repeat them for hours at a time. I don’t realize how much it’s really taking out of me until I get home and try to decompress. It’s a good feeling though, I love what I do and wouldn’t want to come home with any extra energy that I could have put into those scenes. I’m happy with the challenges.
shuString: What are your thoughts on your character’s personality?
Italia: I feel like April is just an alternate universe Italia. Because we’re so fundamentally alike, I made the decision to put myself in her shoes while I’m at work instead of creating a character to paint on every day. I think that makes her more honest and relatable for the audience.
shuString: Do you have any personal ambitions yet unattained? Directing? Producing? Writing?
Italia: I’ve written some things that I’m confident I’ll never let anyone read. I don’t have any aspirations to direct in the near future. I’m way too controlling for that. I’m happy doing what I’m doing right now, and I’d like to keep doing that for as long as possible.
shuString: Are there any new projects you’re working on that you can talk about?
Italia: I just wrapped up a short film called Must Feed And Water. It’s a sweet story about a little creature that is produced and grows or sickens by love. I haven’t seen any footage yet, but it was a blast to shoot. Everyone involved is so talented. I’m on the edge of my seat for a phone call to see a rough cut.
shuString: What inspires you?
Italia: I try to find inspiration everywhere. I’m often inspired by my fans, and the people out there who really are fighting the disease that April is. They’re the strong ones, and they’re way cooler than me.
shuString: Describe yourself in five words?
Italia: Extra Big Mac Sauce, Please.
shuString: If you weren’t acting, what would you be doing instead?
Italia: I’d be an entertainment lawyer.
shuString: What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Italia: “No one said it would be easy, they just promised it’d be worth it.”
shuString: What is on your bucket list?
Italia: To swim in the Dubai aquarium with great white sharks. Ride the Titanic 2. Be a mom.
shuString: What item in your closet do you wear the most?
Italia: Pajamas.
shuString: What quote do you live by?
Italia: This changes on a daily basis, but this morning, I really like the Dr. Seuss quote “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
shuString: What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
Italia: I won a car on Let’s Make A Deal with Wayne Brady.
shuString: What is one thing you wish you knew when you were younger?
Italia: Life is so much more fun when you don’t give a sh*t what people think.
shuString: What is your beauty secret?
Italia: Sunscreen!
