She's also known for being a top 8 finalist on So You Think You Can Dance and made her mark on the big screen playing 'Sari' in No Strings Attached with Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman. More recently, Mollee stars in newly released Lifetime movie, A Night to Regret, as college student Chelsea Bilson. In an interview with Mollee we got the inside scoop on her role as Chelsea and what she's working on in the future!
When was the moment that you knew you wanted to pursue acting seriously?
MOLLEE: "After my first acting role as “Sari” in Paramount’s ‘No Strings Attached.’ Getting that incredible feeling of filming my very first scene as an actor really pushed me to train harder and work more so I could do this for the rest of my life! "
You star in the recently released Lifetime movie A Night to Regret. Can you tell us a little about the movie and your role?
MOLLEE: "My role, Chelsea Bilson, is a law student with a love for film making! She reunites under a sad circumstance with her childhood friend, Milla, who then (per usual) gets her into some mischief that causes her to get a dangerous stalker, and puts her life in danger."
What are some of your favorite memories from working on the set?
MOLLEE: "Gigi Zumbado plays “Sara” .. “Chelsea’s” best friend, and we had so much fun on set together. We are now best friends in real life!"
Do you find that you favor a specific genre of film?
MOLLEE: "I absolutely love drama films, but my new favorite to work on is an action set :)"
Of the roles that you have portrayed, which would you say has challenged you the most as an actress?
MOLLEE: "I think that my role of “Chelsea” in A Night to Regret was pretty tough at times! Being put in such a scary position and realizing that some young women go through what Chelsea does, is just awful!"
If you could give one piece of advice to aspiring actors what would it be?
MOLLEE: "Remember to embrace and respect the rejection! It only helps you fight harder and feel even more proud of yourself when you finally accomplish your goal!"
Are there any other projects we can expect from you soon?
MOLLEE: "Yes!! I have two more movies coming out this year! The Reliant and The Favorite! STAY TUNED!"
