Frequently Asked Questions:
How Do you Pronounce Your Name?
Kai – al
Is your hair curly or straight?
My hair is naturally curly. Although sometimes you might catch me with loose curls or straight hair…just because I like to change it up ;)
Do You Live In New York City?
One day! New York City is literally my favourite place in the entire world. I consider it my second home because of the amount of time I’ve spent there. One summer, I lived in Manhattan for 6 weeks to train at the AILEY SCHOOL (home of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre). I still travel to NYC frequently for business & pleasure. Many of my instagram posts have included photos from my travels.
How did you get into acting?
I’ve always loved to perform as a child. Even if that meant in my living room. I would take any opportunity I got to dance or sing or re-site a monologue from one of my favourite films. I danced competitively since the age of 7 and soon trained at schools like The National Ballet Of Canada and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre in New York City. I was scouted one day while taking a dance class. And as you can imagine, once I figured out that I could do what I loved and make a living out of it…well…I was sold. I booked my first commercial audition and never looked back.
What Foundation Do You Use?
