Interview with Angell Conwell

Angell Conwell is currently has a recurring role on “The Young and the Restless”, playing the character Leslie Michaelson.  She has also has co-star in the following movies “Baby Boy”, “Soul Plane” and “The Wash”.  Movie Mikes had a chance to chat with Angell to chat about how she enjoys playing a lawyer in the soap opera.

Mike Gencarelli: Tell us how you prepared for your character Leslie Michaelson in “The Young and the Restless”?
Angell Conwell: I started out by searching the internet for characteristics of lawyers. I also watched a lot of movies where actors or actresses I admire played lawyers. I then added my own spin on it which I think is very important. I had been a fan of the show, so I had an idea of the role. But thank goodness for the internet (Laughs)!

MG: Can you tell us how your role came about and how you enjoy working on “The Young and the Restless”?
AC: I auditioned for the show because my entire family watches the show. Also the character was one that I really wanted to play. When I went to the audition, I just really felt it and I think it came off in the audition. I really enjoy working with the cast. They are such great actors which I don’t think a lot of people realize. The whole experience has been just great!

MG: Can you compare what working on TV and movies is like verses working on “The Young and the Restless”?
AC: From my experience so far working on soaps is much faster. I was used to coming from movies where you have lots of rehearsals and preparation. In soaps you don’t have nearly as much time. I have learned that you have to be prepared and ready to go at anytime.

MG: Can you tell us about any upcoming episodes or story lines for your character?
AC: With my character being a lawyer there always seems to be something going on in the city so Leslie is out there tending to her business. I really can’t say too much other than I want everyone to keep their eyes open!

MG: What has been your favorite role to work on so far?
AC: I really enjoy playing Leslie on “The Young and the Restless” this role is the first time I have played this type of character so it’s growth for me. I have done a bunch of comedies which were all really great. Working on “Baby Boy” with Jon Singleton was wonderful and I also really enjoyed “Soul Plane”. I think it’s a tossup between those three.

MG: Do you have any other upcoming projects?
AC: There always seems to be something in the works but, right now most of my time is taken up doing “The Young and the Restless” I also have my website www.allangel.com which will have all my up to date info.
