Erica Fernandes, who is currently seen in Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi 3, has been around for just enough for fans to know that she breathers every character she takes on. Be it Sonakshi Bose or Prerna in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, she has managed to ace it all, while also maintaining a strong on-screen chemistry.
Erica got talking to India Forums about that and a little more, and here's our conversation with her.
Kuch Rang... has managed to break out of stereotypes while also acknowledging them. What do you think about that?
Yes, the show has broken a lot of stereotypes whilst bringing them to the forefront and mainly acknowledging them, which is quite amazing! I am happy that I am part of content that is engaging and has such lovable and memorable characters and an emotional and personal connection with the audience and at the same time always puts forth the right kind of message.
You have managed to get the kind of chemistry that clicks with the two most iconic shows, KZK and Kuch Rang. What would you say is the key to it?
Being a 100% performer at heart is the key to getting the right kind of chemistry and feeling one with my character. This trait has stayed with me since day 1 and continues to help me grow through every role and project I take up.
You have mentioned earlier how you want to explore untapped roles, what would you say are they?
There are a lot of genres I want to experiment with. Comedy, the negative space, and maybe even the role of superwoman! Characters and genres like these help me explore my potential as an actor to the fullest and ones which have depth are one's I am definitely willing to try out.
Will we see you on the web, anytime soon?
The digital space has evolved and how in the last year! The kind of content that is making its way in the web world has given it a huge breakthrough and in turn, also given so many actors the opportunities of a lifetime that they were looking for. So yes if a good script, a good role, and a good storyline are offered to me as part of a good web show or web film, I will readily take it up.
