5 Questions with “LOREDANA, ESQ.” Star Loredana Nesci

Article: 5 Questions with “LOREDANA, ESQ.” Star Loredana Nesci

SundanceTV: You began your career with the LAPD. What made you switch from cop to defense attorney?

LN: The LAPD was always just a stepping stone for me. My goal was always to be an attorney. I detoured into police work to experience criminal cases from the ground floor. When I was a cop I investigated crimes and arrested people. I acquired knowledge that my law books could never teach me. This past experience gives me an edge when dealing with clients and prosecutors, who experience crimes through the written words of police reports. I, on the other hand, have seen death, violence and blood. I was never sure if I would make it home at the end of my watch but I would do it all over again because I am a better attorney for it.

SundanceTV: How did your role on THE RED ROAD come about? What were you told about your character?

NG: I got a call from my agent about THE RED ROAD, and I put together an audition tape for the casting. The scenes that I got to audition with were the actual scenes that I did for that first episode I’m in, where I’m trying to break into the garage. What’s interesting is some characters just click and some don’t… I’ve done a lot of very hardened sort of men, prisoners. I’ve played a lot of bad guys, so I’m usually hurting somebody… But as an actor you’re always justifying what you’re doing and this was the easiest one to justify because even though I was doing something illegal, I completely clicked with why he was doing it. I completely understood a father doing whatever he had to because his son was hurt, so I really wanted to play this role. I wanted to play a character that had some built-in sympathy.
