Some know Caroline Stella, acting sophomore, as a stand-up comedian. Others recognize her from OCU Improv or The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, where she played “Satan.”
Check out the exclusive information on this little devil.
Q: What are you most passionate about, if you had to pick one thing?
A: Art. It encompasses a lot. I mean, I’m passionate about comedy. I think that’s fairly obvious.
Q: What are your dream spring break plans?
A: Disneyworld: the kingdom of happiness.
Q: What are your actual spring break plans?
A: Home. I have some people crashing at my house, so there will be guests in and out.
Q: What is your most embarrassing moment?
A: I don’t get embarrassed a lot, so it’s hard to think of one. I’ll go with when I accidentally cuss in the dance school. I try to keep my potty mouth under control in there, but when I don’t, the teachers get weirded out.
Q: What is your greatest fear?
A: Not being a good enough person.
Q: Would you rather win an Olympic medal, a Nobel prize, or a Grammy?
A: Not an Olympic medal. That’s too much physical effort. I’d say a Nobel Peace Prize because it would mean I did something bigger than myself to help change the world in some way.
Q: Tell me about your summer plans!
A: I’m going to be in New York for 2 1/2 months. I have an internship at The Pit, a comedy club. Basically, from what I can tell from the emails and the interview, I’ll be more of a personal assistant. There are no set duties. It’s basically whatever they need. They said I can play a hand in helping develop a touring company they want to set up in the west coast. Hopefully, I’ll be able to take dance classes and see shows too.
Q: Tweed, corduroy, or denim?
A: Not corduroy. Denim, I suppose. I don’t really like tweed. It’s for old professors.
Q: What is the ultimate dream?
A: I almost don’t want to say Saturday Night Live because that’s too obvious. I don’t think I’d be disappointed in myself if I didn’t get SNL, but I would be disappointed if I didn’t have foster children someday. I want to have a foster home.
Q: What dessert describes your life?
A: You know, I think it would be cannoli because I love cannoli. They’re my favorite dessert on the planet. Also, they have a hard but not super hard shell on the outside, and on the inside, the filling is firm yet soft. I think that’s a perfect metaphor for me.
Q: If a doll was modeled after you, what kind of doll would you want (i.e. bobble head, American Girl doll)?
A: With the whole Barbie campaign, I want to be a Barbie doll! I don’t want to be the typical one, though. I’m Italian. I’m not fat, but I’ve got some meaty thighs with muscle. I want to be apart of the movement!
Q: If you could have a movie night with anyone in the world, who would you go with, and what movie would you see?
A: I can’t decide between Lucille Ball and Charlie Chaplin. I’d probably choose Lucille Ball over Charlie, but Charlie was such an amazing performer. If it was Charlie Chaplin, I would definitely want to watch The Kid. It’s my favorite movie of his because it shows how meaningful a relationship can be, and they don’t even have to speak. With Lucille Ball, I would want to watch her favorite movie that she made, so I can get a live commentary.
Q: What are you most proud of?
A: I think I’m most proud of my dad. I know you’re expecting me to say something else, but truly, the thing that brings me the most pride is my father.
Q: Who would you elect as President of the United States if you could pick anyone?
Q: What inanimate object is your greatest source of inspiration?
A: Really, any book written by people I admire. Anytime I read Tina Fey’s book or Amy Poehler’s, I’m inspired. I recently got books by Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett. They prove that women are funny, and they’re really inspirational to me. They give me the drive I need to want to be their status.
