Jessica Wingen - "Peppermint Patty" of the Charlie Brown

Today, I had a great conversation with "Peppermint Patty" - Jessica Wingen who gave the character full passion. She wants to share some of her thoughts on this live reading and her aspects of being an actress!

Q1. Can you please give us some background about yourself?
I really loved acting since I was a kid. I did a lot of theater in school and this is my main career focus. I work in children’s theater, it is really interesting to work with kids and still be in the field. I hope to get into more television fields. 

Q2. Why did you choose Charlie Brown?
I definitely grew up with the story. I definitely love peppermint character who is so strong and funny. I just feel like everyone knows the characters so no one needs to caught up who they are. It is very interesting to put those characters into different stories without telling the background. 

Q3. What field you have the most interest in as an actress?
I did a couple of short films and a lot of theater. I did some theater in PCC. I am keep going with the aspect of films in television fields.

Q4. What is the biggest "crisis" you have in your performing life and how did you overcome it?
I was doing a play five years ago, I was in a role of stealing something. I was already sitting on the stage and realized there is nothing behind my back. So I had to leave the stage and grab the stuff from the dressing room. I came back to the stage as calm as possible, it was so hard to do in front of a full crowd of audience.
