Noa Drake plays Amber on Red Ruby. Scroll to read all about her time shooting the show, and everything else you need to know!

What was your favorite Red Ruby scene to shoot?

All the scenes with scary vampire stuff! It was fun and a weird challenge to wear fangs for so long.

How did you get into acting?

I’ve always been around acting. Both my parents worked in TV, so my whole childhood was on the soundstage. But I was around sixteen or seventeen when I got into it for myself.

What do you love about being on set?

I love meeting new people. From the cast to the crew, I’ve had a lot of fun with the Brat team.

What do you hate about being on set?

Honestly nothing. I’m grateful to have a job that I enjoy doing.

Who is a figure from history that you admire or look up to?

I’m a major Guillermo Del Torro fan. He’s responsible for my love of film and acting. I would LOVE to sit down and have a conversation with him.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

I’d kind of like to take a break from civilization. My ideal life would be hidden away in some mountain town, maybe in Europe, or somewhere like a monkey sanctuary somewhere quiet.

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not on set or working?

Making music. Music is my first love.

What kind of music do you make?

I dabble in everything and try to keep an open mind.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

I’d love to live in Norway. I was there briefly, and it’s so quiet and beautiful and surrounded by clear water. I could just sleep all day!

What’s your favorite show currently?

Game of Thrones!

Who’s your favorite Game of Thrones character ?

Khaleesi has dragons and you can’t fight that.

If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be and why?

Lil Wayne. Lemme be a rapper for a day, that’s who I am deep down anyway.

One thing you couldn’t live without?

Probably music. I listen to music every chance I get, so living in a world without it seems kind of crazy.

Favorite ice cream flavor?

I actually don’t like ice cream!

Favroite ride at disneyland?

I really like The Haunted Mansion.

One last fun fact?

My lucky number is seven because I was born August 7th at 7AM, and I weighed seven pounds.
