Have you heard? We’re hooking up three VINA matches in NYC with a chance for an epic #vinadate to see Broadway’s Pretty Woman … and yes, you still have a chance to win! If you live in NYC, make a match until Dec. 29, send a message to your new vina, and you’re automatically entered to win!🌟
To celebrate this amazing contest, VINAZINE had some girl talk with actress/singer Orfeh, who plays Kit in the Broadway musical. Kit, as we know, is Vivian’s best friend. Here, we talked about friendship, big dreams, her dream VINA match and more!
Q: Thanks for talking to VINAZINE, Orfeh! So what do you love most about playing Kit?
A: Well, Kit is a whole lotta fun to play so there isn’t much I don’t love about playing her, but I think that she’s got a really big, great, supportive heart. [I also love] her tell-it-like-it-is attitude and kickass wardrobe ;). I also love how supportive she is of her bestie, Vivian (played by Samantha Barks).
Q: Why is Kit and Vivian’s friendship inspiring to you?
A: I think what’s so inspiring about their friendship is that they really, really root for each other and that’s the way a true blue friendship should be—where you want the absolute best for the other person, no matter what that means for you. For Kit, that means losing her best friend (at least proximity wise) but that’s what makes it a great friendship, that no matter what, love triumphs over any sort of selfishness!
Q: Do you strive to be a friend like Kit?
A: I am and have always been that sort of a friend. At least I would like to think so!
Q: How do your real-life friendships compare to theirs?
A: Kit is extremely loyal to Vivian and always supports her no matter what. I’m like that in my friendships and I look for friends that support me in that way!
Q: What friendship qualities are most important to you?
A: Loyalty, loyalty and a wicked sense of humor!
Q: People dream about being on the Broadway stage. How did you make it happen?
A: I was lucky enough (and worked really hard) and got a record deal straight out of high school and grew up singing, but Broadway was never on my radar. After touring with my album, my choreographer A.C Ciula invited me to audition for Footloose and the rest is history!
Q: What is your personal mantra you follow?
A: Work your butt off to make it look easy!
Q: On Hey! VINA, vinas describe themselves in five emojis. What are yours?
Q: What is your guilty pleasure?
A: I don’t know if it’s guilty, but I do love going to the movies.
Q: If you could swipe right on anyone on VINA , who would it be and why?
A: I would most want to swipe right on Julia Roberts, but I’ve already had the privilege to meet her. She came to see the show and was so kind and gracious and spent so much time talking with the cast – she loved it! After meeting her, the bar is very high 😉
Q: Where is your favorite place to go with your girlfriends, or your favorite things to do with them?
A: Shopping, shopping and a good meal to fuel up for more SHOPPING!!!
