” All throughout high school, I really turned my back on acting,” she explains in attempting to withstand the acting bug.
” I said I was going to be a photographer, I’m going to be behind the lens. At 12 years old, I moved to L.A., which is all Hollywood, and all I was asked is, ‘Are you going to do what your dad does?’ I was rebelling. I was like, ‘No! I’m not going to do what he does! I’m going to be behind the camera.’ And then I got to college and asked myself, ‘Why are you being so stubborn about this?’ I wasn’t happy in the photo department, so I transferred to the film studies department, and then I took an acting class and fell in love with it.”
Although she is the child of a star, Clara claims she isn’t really attempting to use the nepotism train.
” I think I have a lot of work to put into it,” she mentions, “and it’s not just going to happen for me because my dad is good at something.
It helps that I was exposed to really great movies as a kid, and seeing my dad love his job.
All of that contributed to me loving film, but it definitely didn’t just hand me a skill. I try to watch as many movies as I can.”
