I had the opportunity to connect with Erika Alexander for the second time to discuss her participation in Wildflower. She was happy to discuss getting to interact with well known actors for the film. Getting to work with Kiernan Shipka for a completely different dynamic in Swimming With Sharks and her experience in a particular scene with Jacki Waver. I also asked her about what she looks for in the project today and more!
