While we have no doubt that there are plenty of you out there who are very familiar with the work of Mikaela Hoover, we decided that it would be a great idea to get to know this beautiful and talented actress a bit better. Mikaela has appeared in a number of television shows and movies over the years, including the likes of How I Met Your Mother, Happy Endings, Rainn Wilson and Super, to name just a few. We are huge fans of Mikaela Hoover and were delighted when the stunning actress agreed to take a few minutes to answer a few of our questions for her.
FS. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, such as where you grew up, first experience of acting, where you were spotted, first big break, and family support etc.
MH. I grew up in Colbert, a small town outside of Spokane Washington. I have been putting on my own plays and making my parents watch me for as long as I can remember. My parents enrolled me in dance classes at age two and I started doing plays in kindergarten. My family has always been extremely supportive of my desire to act as long as I went to college before I started. I did four years at Loyola Marymount University. Sometimes I feel like I am a little behind in my career because of those 4 years of education but I'm glad I did it.
FS. Which direction do you want your career to take? TV or Film? You have such a great filmography of what we consider premium TV shows, it just seems natural that the next step would be leading lady, you very clearly have the calibre required for this, is there anything coming up?
MH. I have learned that in this business what you want to do isn't necessarily what you are right for. I love horror movies and always thought that I would be starring in them by now. The problem is that over the last couple years the few horror films I've booked have all wanted nudity. I don't think there is anything wrong with nudity as long as it's tasteful, which let's face it most horror films don't really do. It's funny because I am constantly telling my agents I want to do scary stuff but I keep getting cast in comedies. I will say I am happy and thankful to be working regardless of what genre or part it is.
FS. Will you venture more into social media in the future? We notice that you’re not super active like a lot of other celebrities, any reason for this?
MH. I am the worst at social media! That's one thing I definitely need to work on so I'm glad you called me out :)! People can just be so cruel on the Internet that I try and stay off of it as much as I can. But I do currently love Instagram although my account is private. I suppose I need to change that.
FS. For us, we see a LOT of pictures every day that fans submit, the pictures we have seen of you are up there with some of the best, do you have much of a modelling background? Any plans for shoots in the future, we know there is demand for them!
MH. Well that's really kind thank you! I do not have much of a modelling background but am super flattered you even asked:) I have a great photo shoot coming up that is different from anything I've ever done so I will keep you posted!
FS. Do you have any ambition beyond acting? Such as any other business ventures outside of Hollywood or a desire to be behind the camera directing?
MH. I would love to maybe direct horror films someday or own my own dance studio. To honest besides acting I dream of having a family someday. I think that being a mother seems like the most fulfilling job there is.
FS. Can you tell us more about the upcoming short horror “Hide and Seek” produced by Peter Safran?
MH. It's about a young girl who hates her stepmother so much she suspects she is a witch. It goes a lot deeper than that but I don't want to give the story away. It was my first time playing the "mom" role so I was a little nervous, but when I found out Peter Safran was producing I just wanted to be involved!
FS. We would be shouted at if we didn’t ask given the male attention you get on FansShare, so here it goes, what’s your relationship status? Any hope for some outstanding male readers?
MH. Ha ha that's so sweet. I am currently single;)
What we love most about Mikaela Hoover is not the fact that she is extremely beautiful, and not even the fact that she is a very talented actress, it is actually that Mikaela is such a down to Earth woman and is very humble. You can next catch Mikaela Hoover doing her thing in "Hide & Seek".
