Credits

Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Seychelle: (on her role in Failing Skies) Lourdes is a very complex character who has a lot going on in her life. She was a pre-med student before the aliens arrived. She's very religious. She's musical. The most challenging part of playing her was her spirituality. While I am a spiritual person, I generally keep my faith to myself. Lourdes is very eager to openly talk about her faith with others and spread her faith, which I really respect. Even though aliens are stealing children and killing, she's so very optimistic.

    • Seychelle: (on sci-fi and aliens) I'm a sci-fi fan. And, yes, I believe in aliens. I went to the science center with Maxim Knight who plays Matt, and Connor who plays Ben. We watched a film about the Hubble telescope and after seeing that, I'm convinced that we're not alone.

    • Seychelle: (on her major option in community college) I'm looking into animal behavior studies. Learning about animals in the wild. I'm also considering a minor in theater or music. I want to keep my studies basically apart from acting and widen my horizons.

    • Seychelle: (on balancing working in acting and studying) In high school, I lucked out because my teachers were cool during Airbender. They'd send work back and forth. I did a lot of schoolwork on set and I talked to my principal and I was able to fly back and walk across the stage for my graduation. Right now, I'm going to community college, which gives me lots of flexibility. When I'm not working, I take a semester of classes.

    • Seychelle: (on getting the role in the movie Honey 2) It was two artistic endeavors in one film. Although, I actually did more acting than dancing. Fortunately, I had done some dancing in high school, which helped a little bit. There was a lot of training and concentration. And once you nailed the concentration and the dances that go into it, then they'd tell you, okay, you can let go now. And you're like, "what?" So you let go. It was very difficult, but it was the most fun I ever had on a set– all the routines and all the dancers telling me about their experiences.

    • Seychelle: (on the audition for the movie The Spirit) I can't even explain it to you. I never really imagined I would be in a movie. When I was eight years old, I'd stand in front of my mirror in the bathroom, make up characters and do monologues—really strange, I know. I told myself that if I could be in just one movie, I'd be happy forever. When I booked The Spirit, it was weird because I never thought I'd ever be in a movie.

    • Seychelle: (on the environment of filming the movie The Last Airbender) Just the people. Night was always making people laugh. And Noah Ringer, who played Aang, has this ability to walk into walls without hurting himself, and he did it like five times on my first day and it kept freaking me out.

    • Seychelle: (on working in the movie The Last Airbender) Having to live up to fan expectations of what Princess Yue should be like. Also, this was just my second feature film, and it was with such a great director. I was a bit intimidated at first, but that all went away when I started working on the set.

    • Seychelle: (on working with the director of the movie The Last Airbender, M. Night Shyamalan) It's really an awesome environment for an actor. He's a very welcoming person on the set. There's no intimidation. It's like you've known him forever. As an actor, I felt he gave me everything I needed—encouragement and relieving the pressure between scenes. I felt relaxed and was able to make the role come to life. His passion trickles down to the crew and actors.

    • Seychelle: (on her audition process for her role in the movie The Last Airbender) It was pretty crazy. I originally auditioned for the role of Katara in 2008 and I didn't hear from them for half a year. Then I got a callback for Princess Yue and tried out for her and I didn't hear back from them for another four months.

    • Seychelle: (on wanting to pursue acting) I'm a sci-fi fan. And, yes, I believe in aliens. I went to the science center with Maxim Knight who plays Matt, and Connor who plays Ben. We watched a film about the Hubble telescope and after seeing that, I'm convinced that we're not alone.

    • Seychelle: (on her high school experience) I wasn't a cheerleader. And I don't think I was a nerd. I was in show choir. I was sort of a low key cool person, obsessed with show choir. My friends and I would compete all over the country. I had a really diverse group of friends.

    • Seychelle: (on the type of roles she would like to try) I'd really like to be in a movie that takes place in the '60s. Something more like a timepiece would be fun. I just did a 50's themed photo shoot and it was so cool.

    • Seychelle: (on other actress that are role models for her) I just saw The Kids Are All Right and I think Annette Benning was fantastic. And I love Julianne Moore. I also really like Jessica Lange

    • Seychelle: (on trying a part in a musical) I don't think I have the right kind of voice for that. But if I were ever given the chance to work in a musical like Mamma Mia, I'd take it.

    • Seychelle: Cesar Chavez is an important & beautiful film... Every time the workers sang, my heart didn't know how to contain itself. Viva la causa!
