Cheryl Ladd is an American actress, singer, and author is best known for her role as Kris Monroe in the popular ABC television show Charlie’s Angels which ran until it’s cancellation in 1981. She entered into Hollywood through music in 1970 by playing the voice of Melody Valentine on Hanna-Barbera’s Josie and the Pussycats. From there she landed a number of roles in television and film and continues to work on upcoming projects that we, unfortunately, were unable to get any details on.
During our interview with Cheryl Ladd, she presented herself with a poise and elegance that was befitting of someone with her experience. Our interview started off with a small promotion to the show Malibu Dan the Family Man, in which she plays the role of the main character’s mother. Ladd expressed how much enjoyed the role and taking part in the show as she mentions her view on the character.
Upon asking Ladd on her views of the Movieguide awards, we got an earnest heartfelt response as Ladd expressed how much the faith means to her and how much she loves these types of events when stating “Well, I just love that this exists.” She proceeds to share some background on herself on how her faith has kept her going.
When asked for some advice for future filmmakers and actors that seek to get into the industry, Ladd’s firm belief in faith shows as she mentions that “Well, I think you pray about it first. That comes first.” Ladd continues to give good advice in mentioning that one really needs to have the dedication and really know what he or she wants to do. Because without any love for your craft or for the work that is needed then there really is no way for one to succeed.

Eddieson Burkhalter | Writing Contributor
B.A | Japanese | San Diego State Univ.
My name is Eddieson. I’m an open minded dreamer that likes to look for new opportunities, experiences, and challenges in life to make things a bit more interesting. After graduating from San Diego State University with a Japanese degree and minor in Business, I landed an office job in Shinjuku, Japan where I dealt with online marketing matters as well as content creation. Though I come from an international business background I could never escape the alluring call of an emotionally manipulating story, regardless of the medium, that could turn the toughest body builder into a two year old child watching The Muppets and eating “pig newtons”. So long as the story is well done it doesn’t matter to me whether it’s presented as a comic, video game, anime, book, movie, or even an interpretive dance with bananas and jello. After some intense independent study I have not only been more than inspired to join the industry, but brought to a point where I wonder why I gave up pursuing this stuff in college and turned to a course of pulling my hair out before each exam. Regardless, I love stories and hope to be presented with the opportunity to tell my own; most likely through writing. With a fire in my heart and goals set I am actively gaining skills each day to hopefully one day help others in their endeavors as well as achieve my own dreams. |Instagram @BlaEddieBla| View My Articles
