Elaine Ballace is an actress and producer in Hollywood. You might have seen her in Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Dracula: Dead and Loving It. She runs her own serie Camp Elaine on Youtube and will take it world wide.
You run the Camp Elaine series on YouTube, where do you get all of your inspirations from?
YouTube, I hope is simply the starting place…I want to see Camp Elaine on TV
How and why do you become an actress?
I believe that I was born to ENTERTAIN! My mom would tell me that as young as 4, I would perform for FRIENDS & FAMILY and gatherings! Apparently I was a good producer, too, for I would get others to perform in my shows.
I don’t think I really set goals, but rather follow my heart and my passion, and simply work hard until what I desire is achieved.
Tell me about the day when you became a fan of Dolly…
I recall as a child growing up everyone talking about DOLLY PARTON
! When I first saw her on TV,she was just so likeable, that I became a fan, and to this day, remain a fan.
How does Dolly inspire you in your profession as an actress and producer?
Dolly’s longevity and success is not an accident. She is a very disciplined, hard working woman who knows what she wants and gets it, but still remains a lady. I think that is what I love most about Dolly Parton.
Why is Dolly special for you?
Her Light-hearted ways on interviews, but her inner strength to persevere.
Have you met Dolly?
I have not met Dolly Parton, as yet,but I do look forward to the day I do meet her.
Do you have any dreams of meeting Dolly?
I would love to not only meet Dolly, but also one day, have the honor of working with her!
If you had the possibility to go out with Dolly, what would you
do on that day with her?
Sometimes I think the best thing to do is simply sit back, let Dolly take the lead, and follow her lead, and learn as much as I can from her!
Do you have any more goals to make about your dreams?
I would love to become a household name as you will, for I believe one can use his/her celebrity fame to help others, and have a few causes that I hope one day I can aid in making a difference for others.
