Susan D’Angelo Reinvents Herself and Finds a New Love
For Susan D’Angelo, it’s never too late to find your groove. The Florida born and raised southern belle found her niche in acting just over a year ago, years after her mom recognized that she had the gift when she was a teen. The signs were always there, and she’d express her love for the craft during Halloween especially. Here, the mother of two daughters, shares a little bit more about herself. –yvette caslin
Why did you take this role?
For another chance to act especially with wonderful people on a great project.
Pisces – a water sign that’s adaptive, sensitive and intuitive adds to my abilities as an actor.

Scarface, when I was 18. I walked out of the theater in a daze.

Other features I have had a speaking role in are When Love Was Simple, Beat Street 2012, Newbourne County, and the latest Prosper, directed and produced by Deronte Smith.

Atlanta, of course. New York is cool. Probably Chicago, if I ever get to visit. Love St. Augustine. And, would fall in love with any city in Italy.
First CD, tape or LP:
First off, that was a long time ago. I remember asking Santa Claus for Neil Diamond’s song “Sweet Caroline” on a 45″ [record] when I was 8-years-old.

The day I filled in for someone in a short film. It was on a whim and I loved it.The day I filled in for someone in a short film. It was on a whim and I loved it.
Worst flubbed line:
I can’t remember that, although I am sure there are some, but I do remember forgetting a few.
Most challenging role:
I would say two roles that were originally geared toward a male character. One was a casting director and the other one was an officer.
Worst job you ever had:
As a child, it was picking up the rotten tangerines before I mowed the grass. Recently, it was working as a cashier at a drug store.
Career if you weren’t a performer:
I would love to reopen my Angel store gift shop.
You’ll never understand why:
People want to understand everything, including me. Because it comes on a ‘needs to know basis’.
Three things you can’t live without:
My family, my hope, my faith
