Fenny hails from the tropical country in South East Asia called Indonesia. She came to New York a little over two years ago to pursue acting. She recently graduated from The Stella Adler Studio of Acting in NYC. Her recent credits include Intoxicating Reads: The Merry Wives of Windsor (True False Theater), Dream of a Butterfly (Columbia MFA) and Mr.X (LIC One-Act Festival). She is grateful to be working with such amazing playwright, directors and cast members of The Procedure. She would like to thank Marcus Yi, Sonia Nam and The Planet Connections Theater members for the opportunity. She's sending love to her family and friends wherever they are and last but not least, God -- for she is where she's supposed to be.
Where were you born? Where were you raised? Where did you go to school?
I was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia. Had my degree in Economics and came to New York to study acting at The Stella Adler Studio of Acting.
What is your show about?
The show is about Adrian who is torn between love and his principal of what constitutes freewill in a country that is supposed to be the land of the free.
Is there a particular moment in this show that you really love or look forward to? Without giving away surprises, what happens in that moment and why does it jazz you?
I really love the monologue of my character, Valerie, when she was telling the story of how she almost drowned and how she came to accept that her son is gay. Also the one where she's telling a story about the king and his kingdom. The idea of perspective is fascinating.
Would you be willing to get a microchip implanted in your eye?
If you had ten million dollars that you had to spend on theatrical endeavors, how would you use the money?
I would like to have my own theater company which focuses on putting Asian actors against the stereotypes. That means having Asian actors as lead roles in a dramatic piece or even comedy. I'd also like to introduce stories and plays from Indonesia to the American audience. We have so many great stories and rich cultures that I think are still being under-represented.
