Los Angeles, California, August 08, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Australian born actress Aurea Morrisey has just finished shooting indie feature film “So You Want To Be A Gangster?” in LA. The film by Mexican born Director Alex Kahuam has high hopes after a short film version was accepted into Cannes Film Festival this year.
Aurea plays volatile Christina, riding her sexuality to pursue a capricious agenda involving a deadly cocktail of guns, drugs, and ambition. When asked of her experience playing Christina, Aurea laughed, “Within the first 10 minutes of arriving on set, I had to make-out with the lead actor, a red-headed Mexican, pull a gun on him, and then die a gruesome death". Aurea also noted that "the high quality of cast, combined with the focused direction of Alex, created a stimulating and creatively charged environment".
Aurea's acting skills were polished at the New York Film Academy in 2013, leading to television roles in MSNBC's Heist, VH1's “Candidly Nicole”, and several feature films including Turkish film Yarmani with Paris Hilton. Additionally, Aurea has just commenced work on a comedic television pilot series titled “Two19 Game Night” which follows the disparate lives of five friends and their entertaining dating shenanigans.
Despite a hectic schedule, Aurea plans a short break between Hollywood hold up's when she returns to Australia in September for Godmother duties and springtime fun with family and friends.
