You Know Me !

APRIL BOWLBY

June 2011

1: How do we know you?

You might know me from a lil’ television show called Two and a Half Men where I played the fun-loving red-head, Kandi. You also might know me from a show called Drop Dead Diva where I have transformed myself into a fun-loving blonde named Stacy.

2: What is your latest project?

Right now I am working on Drop Dead Diva. It’s a dramedy; full of court cases, angels, soul transfers…you know, everyday stuff. It airs on Lifetime and our third season premieres on June 19th. Happy Summer everyone!

3. Where are you living?

This moment I reside in Atlanta, Georgia; home of the peaches, though I have yet to see one peachtree (streets named after peachtrees don’t count). After Drop Dead Diva wraps, I will leave Atlanta and fly home to my permanent residence in Los Angeles, where there are no seasons: it’s sunny and always 70 degrees.

4: What don’t we know about you?

I only drink decaf.

5: What is your favorite travel destination?

I love traveling to anywhere new, but I just recently traveled to Croatia, and I have to say, I would go back in a heartbeat. It is so magical! The water is the clearest blue. There are ancient castles. And it has the friendliest people. You must be aware of the sea urchins though. Those little bastards will come out of nowhere while you’re relaxing and having a nice swim. You put your foot down on a rock for a minute of rest, and BAM! sea urchin spines in your foot. Other than that it is really the most romantic place I’ve ever been.

6. What inspires you?

Little random things. A good song on the radio. A breeze that wraps around your body. Light. Shadows. Love. Hope. Heat.

7: If not yourself, who would you be?

I would be Mikhail Baryshnikov. He is a brilliant dancer. It would be amazing to be a man, for one. What in the world does that feel like? And to be someone that has such control, power and command over their own body?!?! Yes, please.

8: What book is your bible?

Like Water For Chocolate by Laura Esquivel

9: What is your favorite word?

Breathe.

10: Who is your biggest hero?

My family. And people who aren’t afraid to laugh at themselves.

11: How do you define success?

Letting go.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

Where are you headed to today?

Anywhere I wants!
