21 Nov

Ever created a fantasy world with everything you’ve ever wanted in life just to impress someone? Well, that’s exactly what Gilby Smalls does in the phenomenal movie, The Truth About Lies. In the remarkable film, things definitely have not been going right for Gilby – he was just fired from his job, he lost his apartment from a fire, and now, he even has to move in with his mom! When he meets his friend’s sister, who he finds himself enamored by, he decides to take the situation into his own hands and lie about his life. Things don’t go as planned when Gilby finds himself tangled in his web of lies and the hardship of now having to tell the truth.

Starring in the excellent movie is the brilliant Gemma Forbes. The wonderful Gemma Forbes has truly established herself as one marvelous and gifted actress. She once again left everyone in awe with her impeccable acting skills in The Truth About Lies. She always impresses everyone with how much of a stellar actress she is in any and every project that she works on. We’ve also seen the incredible Gemma Forbes in projects including the hit movie, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, the movie, Allure and many others. Gemma Forbes is absolutely stunning, both inside and out, and she truly stands out as one exceptional actress in the entertainment industry.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had a fantastic time interviewing the spectacular Gemma Forbes and she dished exclusively to Alexisjoyvipaccess all about what inspired her to focus her life around acting, what the atmosphere was like working on set of The Truth About Lies, what would be her dream role to portray, and so much more only in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview.

Check out my VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview with the sensational Gemma Forbes below and be sure to catch her in The Truth About Lies out now on VOD!

Follow Gemma Forbes on Twitter and Instagram: @GemForbes

Alexisjoyvipaccess: You’re a brilliant actress. What inspired you to focus your life around acting?

Gemma Forbes: Oh goodness, that’s very flattering. I was always interested in acting, but the inspiration to make it my main focus was when I came to New York for an acting workshop. When I came back to Scotland (which is where I’m originally from) I decided to give it a real go. Funnily enough, I ended up back in NY, which is where I’m based now.

Alexisjoyvipaccess: Your film, The Truth About Lies just recently had its Los Angeles premiere and released on October 27th. Can you tell us a little bit more about your character in the movie?

Gemma Forbes: Yes. I play Ann. She is sweet and innocent but can come of a little pretentious. She was a lot of fun to play because together her and her boyfriend, Andy, played by Adam David Thompson, are blissfully unaware of how annoying and patronizing they are.

Alexisjoyvipaccess: What was the atmosphere like working on set of The Truth About Lies?

Gemma Forbes: It really was a lot of fun, a lot of laughter! Phil Allocco, our director, really set a great vibe, and I think that makes such a difference in getting the best performances from the actors, especially since there was some improv throughout the film.

Alexisjoyvipaccess: You also worked on the amazing film, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life. What was that experience like for you?

Gemma Forbes: I played a waitress in a scene with Rob Riggle, his character is hitting on me in the most unsubtle way possible while taking his girlfriend’s kids out to lunch at Dave & Busters. He was so funny, it was a challenge to keep a straight face. My character also becomes an animated cartoon, so that was totally new for me and fun to see.

Alexisjoyvipaccess: What would be your dream role to portray?

Gemma Forbes: She-Ra. She has awesome powers and rides around on a unicorn, what more could I ask for?!

Alexisjoyvipaccess: If you could work alongside any other actor / actress in a future project, who would you like it to be?

Gemma Forbes: Glen Close

Alexisjoyvipaccess: What are some other upcoming projects that you are working on that fans can stay tuned for?

Gemma Forbes: I have a few things coming out in 2018, unfortunately nothing I can talk about just yet.

Alexisjoyvipaccess: Lastly, if you could bring out one message to all of your fans, what message would that be?

Gemma Forbes: Follow your heart!

Learn more about the show here! “When offered a new job back in her hometown of Hialeah, Mari Sanchez (Melissa Carcache) drags along her new secret husband Kay Greenberg (Jordan Wall) from Chicago to move in with her loud Cuban family. Having never met her family or learned Spanish, BIG challenges are in store for Kay as he arrives to Miami’s most Cuban populated city, Hialeah. While coming to grips with the culture shock and trying to gain the family’s acceptance, Kay must keep his cool while waiting for the right moment to reveal to Mari’s hot-tempered father, his secret marriage to his first-born daughter. Language barriers quickly become the least of Kay’s worries.

Writer/director David A. Vargas and writer Javier Mayol who are fresh off distributing their award winning film “Love and Hostages” team up with actress and executive producer, Melissa Carcache, notable for her role as “Lily” on Nickelodeon’s hit series “Every Witch Way.” Vargas and Carcache, both Miami-born and raised in Cuban families, contribute to the authenticity of these six episodes by adding a mixture of personal experiences and testimonies from real Cuban exiles, while Mayol adds the hilarious fish-out-of-water quirk. Modern meets classic in the short-form storytelling that this dream team was able to execute, hoping to capture the simplicity, humility and comedy that lies within a contemporary Cuban family living in Hialeah.” (Source: press release)
