You might know her from such iconic films as Clueless, Legally Blonde, and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, but did you know that April Fool is an actor, producer, and director? She’s already made a name for herself in Hollywood, and she’s only 33 years old! Let’s take a look at what it’s like to work with the talented actress, and how you can emulate her success.
She’s A Hard Worker
Even before she became famous, April always had a passion for the arts. She graduated from Yale University with a degree in English, and then went on to study at London’s prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. After graduating in 2001, she began working with the Royal Shakespeare Company before getting her big break in Hollywood. Since then she’s never looked back, and she’s gained a reputation as one of the hardest working actresses in Hollywood. During her training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, she was nominated for a Best Newcomer award in the British Academy of Film and Television Awards, and shortly after she gained her big break in Hollywood, she was nominated for a Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Best New Actress – Comedy. On top of all that, she also received a Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television for her work on NBC’s The Player. She clearly works extremely hard, and fans of her TV series, The Good Witch, will attest to that fact as she rarely takes a break from filming. She’s so dedicated that she even does her own stunts, which she often mentions on social media. While most people might take a year or so off after college to settle into their careers, April chose to work hard and continue developing her skills, and she’s certainly paid back the entertainment industry for its faith in her. It’s clear that she’s determined to succeed, and she’s used her platform to preach the importance of hard work and perseverance. She also frequently posts about her love for Shakespeare, and she has a Hamlet wig in her collection that she wears when acting as Prince Hamlet.
She Values Personal Hygiene And Self-expression
Another thing that sets April apart from many other Hollywood actresses is her strong belief in personal grooming and self-expression. She often posts about makeup and skincare products that she enjoys using, and she’s also incredibly candid about her body positivity journey. She often posts about the importance of self-love and the courage it takes to be yourself, and it’s led to a large online following. She often posts about feminism and equality, and she’s used her celebrity to fight for social change and speak out about important issues. She’s so committed to these causes that she even launched a clothing line, AF1, which stands for ‘All Fabrics, One Country’. It’s clear that she’s a strong and independent woman, who’s not afraid to speak her mind or stand up for what she believes in.
She Values Education
April also values education, and she often posts about the importance of furthering your studies. She often mentions how impressed she was with the graduates of Yale University, noting that they clearly put their studies at the heart of their learning. She herself went on to study at London’s prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and she remains committed to furthering her studies. She often posts about how she wants to continue learning, and recently had the opportunity to study a Masterclass with celebrated French director, Pierre Morel. The two worked together on the set of his 2018 film, The Red Shoes, and it was there that they discussed the craft of acting and the importance of education. It was an experience that April will never forget, and one that she clearly values.
She Values Variety
April also values variety, and frequently posts about how she loves to explore different acting styles and take on new roles. She clearly values the variety of roles that a Hollywood career offers, and she’s used this to her advantage, often posting about her willingness to take on different characters. She’s played both villains and heroes, and she’s appeared in everything from biopics to period films. It’s clear that she’s not afraid to try new things, and she clearly values the opportunity that a Hollywood career provides. She often mentions that while it’s important to have training, it’s also important to be able to find your feet within the industry. Variety is important, as is finding your own voice as an actor, and she’s clearly not afraid to explore different styles and take on new roles, so that she can continue finding her feet within the industry.
She Preaches Responsibility
April also values responsibility, which is perhaps why she tends to shun the limelight. She often posts about how she doesn’t want to be seen as the face of the movement, but as a facilitator, passionate about creating change. She’s often been referred to as the ‘queen of common sense’, and it’s clear that she sees herself as a voice of reason, offering advice and guidance to those seeking it. It’s not that she doesn’t want to be in the public eye, but she clearly thinks that she has something valuable to say, and she’s using her platforms to speak out. In a Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world, April was ranked 17th, largely due to this influence. She’s frequently cited as one of the most influential, if not the most influential, celebrity of our time. As well as being responsible and practical, she’s also incredibly generous, and she supports a number of charities, including environmental groups and women’s shelters.
She Values Humility
Last but not least, let’s not forget to mention that April values humility. She frequently posts about the importance of being humble, and she has a history of being open about her mistakes and imperfections. She openly acknowledges that she’s not perfect, and she values the humility that comes with being yourself. She often posts about her pride in being a woman, and she’s constantly working to fight for equality. We can clearly see that she values self-reflection and personal development, and she’s continued to grow and evolve as an actress since first breaking into the industry. In the words of William Shakespeare, “if you cannot be kind, be sure that you are at least calm”.
