AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH ACTRESS...

ZULAY HENAO

“You have to be a great human being, to become a good actor.”

- Diana Castle

XANDERMAG 153


GOWN STELLO

EARRINGS CUTTING EDGE ARCHIVES

XANDERMAG 154


XANDER MAGAZINE: What or who inspired you to pursue acting?

ZULAY HENAO: Everything evolves…thoughts evolve. I have a lot of questions about the free will

given to us by our creator. So, in a nutshell, Life, and the beauty of the full

human experience, inspires me. Really good actors also inspire me through their mastery of

storytelling.

XANDER MAGAZINE: What has been the highlight of your career, thus far?

ZULAY HENAO: Being blessed enough to call this my job is the highlight!

XANDER MAGAZINE: How was your experience working with Mike Epps on your

upcoming project, “Meet the Blacks”?

ZULAY HENAO: I just remember laughing non-stop, and my face literally hurt. He is a very

funny, funny dude. But, more so than that, I am grateful for a very in depth conversation about

the journey, and how to stay grounded, and working harder.

XANDER MAGAZINE: Are you working on any upcoming projects with Tyler Perry?

ZULAY HENAO: Yes! I am about to start Season 3 of “If Loving You is Wrong”.

I love Tyler and my OWN family.

XANDER MAGAZINE: Are you working on other projects outside of film?

ZULAY HENAO: I am currently (as I write this) working on an action/comedy film with Netflix,

Starring Kevin James and Andy Garcia. I play a badass DEA agent on a mission to save her

country from a drug cartel and corrupt politicians. It’s been so much fun, and is the current

highlight of my career! There are so many new dynamics and challenges in this film for me as

an actress, including some pretty amazing fighting sequences and pretty eclectic dance

sequences.


XANDER MAGAZINE: What is your niche’ outside of acting?

ZULAY HENAO: I love to travel. I want to visit every crevice of this earth, or at least try to.

I love connecting to other cultures.

XANDER MAGAZINE: Have you ever pursued any

projects in the fashion industry?

ZULAY HENAO: Not yet! I love fashion and the way it makes women feel powerful and sexy.

I am excited and open to explore these opportunities in the near future.

XANDER MAGAZINE: Who is your fashion inspiration or favorite

designer?

ZULAY HENAO: I am not sure I have one single favorite fashion

designer, but someone whose work I am currently obsessed with, is Zuhair Murad. He really

knows how to make a woman look like a queen. So many celebrities have been wearing his

stuff on the red carpet, like Jennifer Lopez, Kerry Washington, Beyoncé, and Emma Stone. One

of my favorite works of art that he created was the dress that Jennifer Lopez wore last year to

the Golden Globes. It was a Fall 2014 Haute Couture silver Art Deco inspired beaded sheer

caftan dress. I loved the plunging neckline and the thigh high spilt.

XANDER MAGAZINE: Outside of work, how would you

describe your style?

ZULAY HENAO: Wow this is a hard one! Well, I guess I would have to say, causal chic. I love to

be comfortable, but without giving up style. On most days I will wear something as simple as a

tank top, skinny jeans, and complete the look with an iconic Christian Louboutin “Pigalle”

stiletto heel. Wearing heels is a must for me. Everything else can be causal, but my heels must

be chic. They make me feel strong and ready to take on the world. Like Sonia Rykiel says,

“How can you live the high life if you do not wear high heels?” I love being known to wear

heels while I go grocery shopping or pumping gas. :)

BODY SUIT & SKIRT STELLO

EARRINGS EVA VINTAGE JEWELRY


XANDER MAGAZINE: Who is your favorite icon or fashion era?

ZULAY HENAO: My favorite fashion era would have to be the 1930’s (Golden Age of

Hollywood), because it celebrated the female form. It was a time when women could show

their curves, and it was the return of the natural waistline. The backless gowns of that time

were gorgeous, and I am a huge fan of a backless dress. I find that an exposed back can

sometimes be more seductive than a plunging neckline. The 1930’s fashion is still very

present on the red carpet today.

XANDER MAGAZINE: What are your aspirations?

ZULAY HENAO: I want to be a great human being. I want to continue to evolve and be a

better woman all around. Through becoming a greater person, I want to create bigger

responsibilities on and off the screen.

XANDER MAGAZINE: Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

ZULAY HENAO: I see myself raising a beautiful family and still kicking ass at work!

XANDER MAGAZINE: What type of advice would you give to aspiring

actors / actresses?

ZULAY HENAO: I would tell them what my acting coach Diana Castle told me, “You have to

be a great human being, to become a good actor.” Acting is about empathy.

XANDER MAGAZINE: Would you like to share anything else with our readers before

closing out this interview?

ZULAY HENAO: Thank you Xander Magazine for the exclusive feature, I’m honored to be your

cover girl. Make sure to stay tuned, the new movie “Meet The Blacks” will be in a

theater near you on April1st!
