The now-known actress Michela De Rossi achieved much recognition for her short time in the spotlight. Recruited to be a part of The Many Saints of Newark, no one would have guessed what was going to happen next.. This movie is a prequel to the popular TV show, The Sopranos.” She was able to rattle off a long list of firsts after arriving in New York for filming: she’d never been outside of Europe, had never flown alone, and had never worked in an English-language film.
Despite her restrained demeanour, the 28-year-old is charming and confident, with a grin that resembles a youthful Julia Roberts when she’s happy. Spend an afternoon with her, and you’ll see why.Being cast alongside Ray Liotta, Alessandro Nivola, Leslie Odom Jr., Jon Bernthal, Vera Farmiga, and Michael Gandolfini (as a young Tony Soprano) fulfilled some of her most important dreams. Still, it was also a chance to show her fellow citizens what was possible.
There was a time in my life when I had lost all of my faith in God.”
What is the English translation of the word? That’s what I’m hoping for. There are times when it’s not only about being a great actor; there are several other factors at play.
Finally, De Rossi exclaimed, Oh my God! I’m going to America!
” In my opinion, I believe that my nation will be proud of me. Everyone, from my parents to my peers, was proud of me for being Italian and being in the United States. In light of the possibility, I concluded that we should hold out hope. In their eyes, “I had no value, and they picked me.”
Before attending drama school at 18, De Rossi had always known she wanted to be an actor, even if that professional path hadn’t yet been crystal clear to her.
For De Rossi, “I simply knew that when I was in front of people, they just enjoyed watching me,” recalls the Italian. As a result of this, I’ve never been someone who researched or who was the first to try anything new. After high school, I thought, “I want to pursue something where I can be the greatest.” “Acting was the only thing that occurred to me.”
Her parents always believed in her, and now look where she is. She had never heard of “The Sopranos” when she was cast in part, but like many Millennials, she devoured the series. From sitting next to Liotta to realising that, unlike the movies she had done in Italy, pastries and coffee greeted her at the table read, the whole experience was exhilarating.
To make a studio film on such parameters is very difficult. According to her, “everything was greater than anything I’d ever done before.”
It will be her first starring in an Italian film in January, followed by the worldwide Western series “Django,” which she just filmed. In the meanwhile, she’s back to auditioning for roles in “The Many Saints of Newark.” A biopic would be her ultimate goal.
The fact that both Audrey Hepburn and I are dancers drew me to her. And if I work hard enough, I can look just like her,” she asserts.
The Many Saints of Newark will be released in theatres and streamed live on HBO Max this weekend with the high expectation for strong box office performance. On the other hand, De Rossi believes she will have to wait until the Italian release in November to get her big break.
