THE KAT GRAHAM EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

TWELV had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Kat Graham who stars as Bonnie Bennett in the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries.” But that's not all she does – Kat is the epitome of multitalented: she acts, sings, dances, produces music, speaks four languages, and is just an all around impressive woman.

Kat began her career at the tender age of six and has been insanely busy ever since. Not only is she a well-rounded entertainer but she is also an avid philanthropist. She is an ambassador for The Water Project, a supporter of the United Nations High Commissioner of Refugees, and a counsel member of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. 

The hardworking beauty clearly has a lot going on and we were so excited to get to know here a little better! Check out our interview and editorial featuring Kat Graham here:

 

 

----------------- Kat Graham's Interview -----------------

 

1. You started acting at a very young age, did you always know you wanted to be an actress?

Kat: I always knew I wanted to be an actress. There was no moment in time that I was not convinced it was what I was meant to do. Whether I would be doing a play in my backyard or a hit TV show, I would still be acting.

 

2. Do you have a favorite type of character you like to play when acting?

I love to play anything that goes against my looks. I would love to play something a bit darker and edgier. I always get excited when I’m able to do that in film or TV.

 

3. What were you like as a child growing up and working in this industry?

I was like any other kid, I considered what I did normal. Everything felt like a new adventure. I would not take back or change one thing while growing up.

 

4. You are a triple threat! You act, sing, and dance – which comes the most naturally to you?

Nothing. I am proud to say I am not naturally good at anything. I have to work extremely hard to be half way decent at my jobs. Which is why I am so proud of the work I have done because I’ve seen how long and how many roads I’ve had to cross to get where I am.

 

5. What inspires your music?

My music as of the past year and a half has been inspired by a muse. Whether its heartbreak or finding myself again, I’ve been really into documenting everything I’ve been going through in my music. I’ve been using the work in my acting with Ivana Chubbuck into my music and I’m happier than I’ve ever been with it. Sonically I’m inspired by the 90’s, everything from Tony Tony Tony to Babyface to Janet Jackson. I have always wanted to make a record that felt as good as that music feels.

 

6. You’ve also added being a producer to your resume, what is your favorite thing about producing?

My favorite thing about producing is that it’s my own. I have been making beats since I was 14 years old, over ten years. I’ve just recently gained enough confidence to release my own music under my own label after being under the thumb of other labels. Which while they had been extremely supportive and I am grateful to them, I lacked creative control to happily make music. It’s super important as artist that you are creating art that you feel connected to.

 

7. You star on the hit TV show The Vampire Diaries, but do you like to watch other vampire movies or shows?

Absolutely not. I have been so immersed in the vampire culture in 6 years that I have to be supremely impressed with something for it to hold my attention. I’m thankful that our show connected with so many people and that it’s more than just a vampire show. It focuses on love, relationships, the human condition and finds many ways to show why being alive is such a magical experience to be valued.

 

8. What is something about you that might surprise people?

I eat a lot of food. I love food more than anything.

 

9. What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?

#whatsparetime

 

10. How would you describe your personal style?

90’s couture.

 

11. Do you have a favorite beauty look, or go to beauty product?

The new Wet N Wild Max Volume Mascara I am so obsessed with.

 

12. Do you have any new projects coming up that you can tell us about?

I released a three part film series “Muse” which is out now. The Vampire Diaries Season 7 will start filming in July. And I’m signed up to do an animated film called QQ Speed.
