Actress Demi Mann, who had roles in Skyfall, Echo Boomers, Tales of Tesla, The Tela Adventures, Emergency LA and Starblessed as the lead, is using her success to promote diversity and women’s equality in Hollywood Film and television. “It is extremely important to me and to society in general. Demi Mann is British, her passion for diversity comes from her own multicultural background. “My heritage is Indian and I was born and brought up in London. It was a colorful upbringing, one filled with traditions, and a healthy dose of ambition.”
That ambition would be difficult to realize due to cultural constraints. “I have always wanted to be an actress since I was a young girl,” Demi Mann remembers. “As a child, I would watch films and Television on the big screen, and I wanted to be part of that storytelling, it was magical. I wanted to be like the role models I looked up to, especially Penelope Cruz, Kareena Kapoor and Salma Hayek.”
The road to becoming an actress was bumpy at times. Demi Mann says, “A girl becoming an actress was not seen as a suitable career choice in my culture. The safer option would have been becoming a doctor or lawyer. I encountered some pushback, but I just could not let go of my dream.” Destiny took over and Mann was destined to become an actress.
Demi Mann studied Biology and Media Studies, and graduated from the University of the Arts London and took as many classes & workshops at one of the best acting schools in the world, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London.
Since being cast in Skyfall, Demi has had film and television roles in Frank and Ava, Echo Boomers, Tesla Adventures, and Astral Princess, Starblessed and Room as the lead. She is getting to experience the industry from the inside out, and she is impressed by the changes it is undergoing.
Demi becomes thoughtful as she thinks about how she wants to use her success and image to help other aspiring actresses & actors of color. “I want them to know that they can achieve their big dreams because of their culture, gender or ethnicity, not despite it. I am doing that and am promoting leading major roles being given to diverse women in the industry. Where I am today is a huge massive blessing, and I am full of gratitude. I am being considered & going up for major leading roles in studio films and network television series.
Demi Mann laughs, when she is asked about what roles she would like to play in the future. “far too many,” she says. “I am so ambitious & dreamy! But, if I must choose, I would say Marvel, DC Comics and Academy Award winning. I would just love to play a secret agent in James Bond like Daniel Craig, or be a superhero in Marvel saving the world.
