    A conversation with Writer and Film Star Ava Paloma

    A conversation with Writer and Film Star Ava Paloma

    In this episode I interview Ava Paloma. Ava is an actress, writer and producer and she just had a huge breakout year ending 2021 with two feature films that she starred in releasing at almost the same time. The first film is Deadlock starring Ava and Bruce Willis and the 2nd is The Scrapper. 
    In this interview Ava shares her story, why the road to success takes time and patience, and then we talk about her big year including an absolutely crazy story on how she ended up starring in Deadlock. 
    This whole interview is just full of wisdom and it’s so exciting to pull back the curtain on making full feature length films to reveal a sneak peak of that world.
