Markina: I started auditioning back when I lived in LA, a few years ago.
Q: What other parts have you had in the past?
Markina: I've played many characters: a southern girl in love with a bag boy at grocery store, a powerful, strong-minded, and fearless White House politician and a hearing impaired girl who longs to be loved by her sister just to name a few.
Q: How did you prepare for your role as Sierra McIntosh?
Markina: In some ways Sierra is like me, so I often have to ask myself, "What would I do, or how would I react," and be honest about it. She's a lawyer, so I had some lengthy conversations with some attorneys about their struggles with making time for personal relationships.
Q: What do you hope people take from this play?
Markina: That true love is a blessing, once you have that everything else falls into place. You never know how or when you'll find it, but when you do, you have to be willing to receive it. Afterall,"it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."
Q: Life gets pretty busy, what does it take to make time for love?
Markina: You have to want it. I always say, people make time for what they want to make time for. Remember it's not quantity, but quality.
