Je Suis Adina Porter

Occupation: Actress
Instagram: @AdinaPorter

Where were you born?
I am a New Yorker. I grew up in 
the South Bronx.

Where do you live now?
I reside in Los Angeles now.

In one sentence what is unique 
about your work?
I very much appreciate getting 
to pretend for a living.

Why do you do what you do?
I love exploring the human 
condition. I am fascinated with 
why and how we humans make the 
life choices that we do. I love 
finding different characters 
within myself. I feel very 
privileged to be able to pay my 
bills doing this.

What inspires you?
Being and doing my personal best
inspires me. I am also very 
competitive. Now that I am a 
mother, I am consciously aware 
that my children are looking to 
me for guidance. I take that 
responsibility seriously, and 
that too inspires me.

Describe your personal style...
I enjoy muted sun drenched colors. I like African style with European tailoring. I like my home and outfits to look effortless and be comfortable, but with style. Fabrics and draping all being thought over and well selected. I love how wearing black...even when its sweatpants, they still appear 

Your ultimate must-have...
My must have is a Neti Pot.

What superpower would you like to
have and why?
I wouldn't mind having the power to erase memories. It takes so much work for me -- and I think many others -- to forgive, forget or let go. It would be much easier to erase thoughts and habits that no longer serve a purpose.

What is next for you?
You will see me on ABC's “The Catch” in a few weeks. “The 100” has earned a 4th season from The CW, so you will probably see me there too.I will also be seen in a feature film next year called “The Last Word” with the amazing Shirley MacLaine. There might be a few other shows, but I don't wish to jinx anything :-)
