Woman Crush Wednesday: Sasha Lane
This year has been an exciting year for our Woman Crush Wednesday Sasha Lane. Sasha’s arrival in Hollywood sounds like a film script in itself. Whilst relaxing on the beach during Spring Break in 2015 the then university student was approached by director Andrea Arnold to star in her upcoming film. The film was American Honey and saw Sasha making her acting debut opposite Shia Lebeouf.
It was announced this week that Sasha will take a leading role in the highly anticipated reboot of Hellboy. Although her IMDB may be looking a bit light there is no doubt we’ll be seeing lots more of this rising star in 2018….
Why we love her…
Least likely to…ditch her dreadlocks. Speaking to Teen Vogue she revealed, “I went through a lot of shit for it, but I’m really happy I did it. I don’t think I’ve ever felt more free or beautiful than I did when I first got dreads — I can’t imagine myself without them.”
Impress her with…peanut butter and cheese on toast…yes an interesting combination…
Mention…Pirelli. Sasha Lane stars alongside 16 other celebrated creatives in the 2018 Pirelli calendar. The campaign was shot by Hunger Magazine’s Rankin in London and features Adwoa Aboah, Djimon Hounsou, Duckie Thot, Lupita Nyong’o, model Naomi Campbell, RuPaul, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Slick Woods and Whoopi Goldberg amongst others.
And another thing…the actress is keen to let the world know that she got her big break based on her merits. Spaking to The Guardian she reveals, ” I did not make it to LA bc of a relationship, nor did I by conforming, I was chosen because of ME, and I worked long hard hours and months to uphold the beauty Andrea saw in me … I have been through too much for too long to let anyone diminish my character. I am not a destitute, or a Cinderella or lucky, I am fucking resilient.”
