Have you ever been in a bind so deep that the only answer was to bust out a rap so dope that the guy of your dreams starts jamming with you and then you solve all your problems and live happily ever after?!
Well…that’s exactly what actress Chelsea London Lloyd is dreaming about in her new comedy short Sneezy G.
So, who is cool enough to play her “dream guy”? Well, Chelsea brought in Lizzie McGuire heartthrob Clayton Snyder as the local bartender that Sneezy G can’t stop thinking about.
I recently interviewed Chelsea London Lloyd to find out more about her directorial debut and her dreamy co-star.
Give us an overview of your comedy short Sneezy G.
CHELSEA LONDON LLOYD: Sneezy G is about a rapper who can’t stop sneezing. She is an awkwardly articulate collegiate gal who just does her thang and says what’s on her mind. I feel like there is a Sneezy G voice inside us all that just wishes we could say what we were actually thinking.
What inspired you to create the project?
CLL: I was inspired to create this project after making a similar short called “PROM?!” that people liked. My PROM?! co-star, Kiersey Clemons, is slaying the game right now! She’s in everything!
Tell us about working with Clayton Snyder, who plays Sneezy G’s dream-guy.
CLL: Clayton is just the coolest. Everyone is like – omg, it’s Ethan Craft – when I first met him I didn’t even realize he was on Lizzie McGuire for like six months. He’s so talented and hilarious…huge things are in store for him. Can’t say enough good things about this guy!
If we could waive a magic wand and go back — is there anything you would do differently as the creator/star?
CLL: Hmm…I would write out the entire series before shooting the pilot. I would also hire a location scout because finding locations = the worst. I’m so bad at that. Oh, and I would do a guided meditation before each shoot day because everyone who knows me knows that I can get stressed out very easily. Ha! I’m literally always stressed.
Now the obvious question: will Sneezy G return?
CCL: Totes! I have the next two episodes written – once I’ve finished the season (6 eps total) we’ll shoot it early next year.
Anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
CCL: If you’re an aspiring actor/creator/artist go out there and make content! I had no what I was doing when I first started but just went for it. I’m still learning everyday and don’t always know what’s next. But I take it day by day. Even if your idea isn’t perfect, even if your story doesn’t make complete sense, even if you make a short and it doesn’t get into festivals….just keep going. Nobody is going to become Lena Dunham overnight, you know?
