Serina was born, raised and thrives in the City of Chicago. She most recently was seen drunkenly making fool of herself in ILY (Gina) (Unheard of Company) and as a reluctant heroine in NPC (Nora). She also had the honor to grace the stage as both a God and a demon and a toy mouse come to life. She’s very excited to be working with Cuckoo’s Theater Project for the first time.
Get to know Serina!
TCTP: What’s a guilty pleasure that you wish wasn’t considered one?
SJ: Honestly? I gave up guilty pleasures a couple of years ago. I was super tired of people making me feel bad for the things that I liked, so I stopped thinking of things as guilty pleasures. I openly love TV other people consider bad, like I will fully fight people about how good of a show Teen Wolf is. I happily listen to bubble gum/top 40s pop. It’s kind of freeing to just openly love things, you know?
TCTP: Have you already planned your dream wedding?
SJ: I’ve never planned the wedding ceremony/reception. But I fully have my outfit planned and ready. It’s going to be a white romper with a detachable tulle skirt, so I can have the whole dress look for the ceremony, and then when it’s time to party I get to dramatically rip off the skirt and I can dance and pee without worry. Also, open bar.
TCTP: When’s the last time you compromised on something?
SJ: I’m a very agreeable person, so if someone isn’t fully feeling plans we make, I am always willing to scale it back and figure out what everyone actually wants to do, even if I was super looking forward to the original plans.
TCTP: What’s something you’ve done for your health that you hate?
SJ: Running. I fully only believe you should run if something is chasing you or there is a dog that needs to be pet.
TCTP: Chocolate Martini or Vodka Tonic?
SJ: Well, I’m allergic to chocolate and Vodka turns me into Sad Bitch Serina™. But if I have to choose, I’d choose Sad Bitch Serina™ over stomach pains. Though if anyone wants to buy me a drink later, I drink Tequila & Sprite ;)
