At the young age of 19, impactful actress, natural model and enthusiastic fashionista Savannah Kennick has already made an impression in the entertainment industry. Having already celebrated many successes including her recent win for "Best Actress in a Short Film" for BLOOM as well as being nominated for both the Young Artist and the Young Entertainer Awards at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival for her role in the indie horror film HOLIDAYS, Savannah is definitely expected to celebrate mayn more milestones in the years to come. BELLO Magazine had the chance to chat with the young rising star about BLOOM, her upcoming projects and fashion input.

Recently, we know you were presented with the award Best Actress in a Short Film for BLOOM. How does it feel to be honored at the Hollywood Reel Film Festival?

Ah, its such an honor! BLOOM was such a special project to me. When you are film you are never really thinking about accolades or approval from others, you just want to make a good movie with a fascinating storyline so to have someone say I did my work well means a lot to me.

Tell us about the film, what can you tell us about the character? The role? And how your character interacts with the various other characters in the film.

In BLOOM I play Anabelle, a naive young girl with big dreams of becoming a fashion model. Annabelle is such a fresh face, she captures the attention of a well-known photographer, but then in the middle of their photoshoot another beautiful girl comes in and interrupts. Being so naive Annabelle pushes herself to prove her worth, even if it means leaving her morals behind. The story means so much to me because I started my character in New York City and I know the feeling ofwanting to prove that at 14 years old I could be as comfortable as the 20 year olds on set.

Who are some actresses you look up to? Have any of them directly influence your acting career?

I'm inspired by so many artists. I try to steal a little bit from each one of them. I adore Cate Blanchett and her power, she is so classically beautiful. I also love Amy Adams and the quiet strength she carries into every role and Rooney Mara who inspires me to become a more badass version of myself.

What are some projects are you currently working on?

Savannah: I've been super busy, I just shot a few episodes on a TV show where I got to work with some incredible actors. I also had a supporting role in the thriller "Do Not Reply!"

Is there a dream role of yours that you would want to play?

Oh, I'd love to play a psychopath. A role like Rosemund Pike in "Gone Girl" would be a dream!

As you know, Bello is a lifestyle and fashion magazine. Can you describe to us your style? Favorite fashion designers, etc.?

Honestly, I'm still figuring it out myself. I love 70's glam. I love babydoll dresses and vintage jeans and silk shirts. It's so hard for me to stay just one aesthetic all of the time. Stevie Nicks is my biggest style icon, if I could run around in a gypsy cape and thigh high boots everyday I totally would. I like how crazy some of the pieces from Gucci are but I also love how classic Chanel is. It's such a toss up.

Fun Question: What historical figure would you want to play on the silver screen?

Sharon Tate or Grace Kelly for sure, they were such beautiful, radiant women inside and out.

What are some words of wisdom you would like to share with your fans and young talent out there that may want to follow in your steps?

There is a real great quote from a poet that says "your art is about if your heart and soul likes you work. It's about how honest you are with yourself and you must never trade honesty for reliability. I think it's really important to realize that at the end of the day you have to be proud of yourself and the path that you are taking because a lot of outside distractions can happen when you choose a creative career path.

"An inexperienced model captures the interest of a well-known fashion photographer."

About Savannah: Exotic, versatile, and an undeniable talent on the rise, Savannah Kennick will make her feature film debut in the highly anticipated indie horror film, "Holidays" which is set to premiere at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival. "Holidays"[Vertical Entertainment & XYZ Films], is an anthology feature film that puts a uniquely dark and original spin on some of the most beloved and iconic holidays of all time. Kennick shines in the Valentine's Day segment as your typical high school mean girl, Heidi, who is also just a little bit crazy. The segment follows a high school outcast who receives an encouraging gesture from her dive coach, and sets out to get him the perfect Valentine's Day gift in return...no matter the cost. "Holidays" will be released theatrically and on VOD&Itunes April 23, immediately following the festival.

Born and raised in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, a small town right outside of Pittsburgh, Kennick says she subconsciously always knew she wanted to make movies. By the age of 9, she knew every line to "Gone With The Wind" but had never considered becoming an actor a real possibility for someone from a small town. At 14 years old, she was discovered by a modeling agent in New York City, and went on to book campaigns, working with Italian Vogue, American Horror Story:Hotel, Teen Vogue, and Seventeen, to name a few. Kennick was mesmerized by the creativity around her in NYC and quickly discovered her love for storytelling and fascination with the film-making process. Her modeling agent suggested she give acting a try and introduced Kennick to her current talent manager, and she moved to Los Angeles at the age of 16 to make acting her main focus.

In her free time, Kennick enjoys reading,photography,boxing,and painting. She also spends lots of her time writing, and recently finished her first pilot script. On the charity front, she loves to lend her support to organizations that raise funds for breast cancer research, which is close to her heart as her mother is a breast cancer survivor.
