Looking back, who would you like to especially say ‘thank you’ to for supporting you from the beginning? “My Grandma. As my beautiful Grandma had taught me my first song I sang on stage at 3 years old in front of 1000 people. My Grandma really believed in me, and she helped me take out a loan for my first album.

My Grandma really is my angel and I am so blessed.” What are your hobbies? “I’m Aquarius, so any time I can be in the sunshine, on the water, and in a boat, I’m there.

Maria -Magdalena by Christina Howard Maria-Magdalena is an International actress, fashion model and producer. Born in Romania. A very classy sophisticated beautiful lady who turns heads wherever she goes and has a great charisma presence on the screen. Here from her home in Manhattan Beach California she gives an exclusive interview. As a child, who was your role model? “My role model was my father. He was the kindness gentleman, very wise and protective of us and a very good provider. He lived for his family and I always wished to be like him, to have his special qualities - warm, kind with a great sense of humour. Dad’s soft and loving speaking voice, the most intelligent mind (he had an answer and explanation What was your childhood for all my questions I used like growing up? to pour out on to him), the smartest man (quickly, he “I come from a family of 12 could figure out if something children I was born in a very was wrong by listening to the beautiful mountain area the sound), the most ambitious city of Bocsa Romana, county and hard working person, Caransebes in Romania. and also the best Christian When I was 1 year old my example.” parents decided to move to Timisoara (which was the Back then, who was your 2nd largest city in Romania at favourite Actor, Actress, and that time) to provide a better Comedian? kindergartens and schools for us the children. There “I had no idea what acting were many disadvantages meant. I had not seen any for Christian families with movies until I was in high many children living far school. We did not own a from the city because of the TV either until the mid-90’s communist regime laws” probably.” Which was the first film that had an impact on you? “I heard my father and other people talking about this film he was invited to watch in the privacy of a neighbour’s house, I believe it was before 1980’s. Three guys from the city brought a VCR and they hooked it to a neighbour’s TV (the guy who carefully choose the people he trusted not to be communist and they paid very good money to watch the film). I asked them what was it called, but they were all talking about Moses....the hero. It may have been the movie called The Ten Commandments 1956, I am not sure. They were all amazed about the Dead Sea and the strong winds.... about Moses getting his people out of Egypt and they were talking about The Ten Commandments as well, and how Moses and his people all ended up for 40 years in the desert. “I was absorbing every word they said, it was a story from the Bible. The Bible was, and still is, my favourite book. I remembered every scene Q&A 12

described in a children’s bible from that story when my father was telling us about the American movie about Moses. It was then when I felt that I was part of this industry. I felt the story in every cell in my body and my soul..... I said to myself, I will be an actress and do my best and make every story be believable, just like the truth is. I had imagined on playing all the roles that will help change the world into a better and more loving place. I will be an actress to play the Bible movies.” Which Hollywood Movie Stars did you most admire and why? “After the revolution, many people from all over the world started to come to visit Romania. It was then when I was around 16-years-old, a few visitors from Italy, when they were passing me in the street, were smiling at me and they were calling 14 me Liz. One day other people were having the same impression and were saying that same name. Days were passing and more and more tourists repeated how I looked like Elizabeth Taylor (Who I had never heard of before). Then, one day someone stopped me after he was making the same remark and observing I was not responding at all. He asked me if I know whom the person he is talking about is, and then I simply answered, NO. It was the second time when after many years I was getting some kind of connection with the world, I felt my strongest connection years back when I heard Moses movie. Then things started changing fast from my perspective. I started going a lot to the cinema, but most movies were Romanian and Indian films that were musicals and the story always sad. Therefore, I started slowly showing more interest to see who Elizabeth Taylor was and what kind of role she played.” Was Elizabeth Taylor one of your favourite Hollywood actresses? “Yes, my most admired actresses still are not with us any more, they were Elizabeth Taylor and Vivien Leigh. I have a number of things in common with these two amazing ladies. I also have things in common with Angelina Jolie when it comes to action roles, and also being a positive role model in this world of ours today.” As a teenager, who were your favourite singers and bands? “I loved Enigma and Scorpions, I still listen to their music. Of course Julio Iglesias, Sandra and few others. The list grew as I was listening to the radio stations more and more.” Did you always want to be an actress? “Yes, my most admired actresses still are not with us any more, they were Elizabeth Taylor and Vivien Leigh. I have a number of things in common with these two amazing ladies. I also have things in common with Angelina Jolie when it comes to action roles, and also being a positive role model in this world of ours today.” described in a children’s bible from that story when my father was telling us about the American movie about Moses.
