Latin American TV star Nazarena Nobile makes her way in the US
Nazarena Nobile embodies the internationalism and global appeal Hollywood now craves, putting her in a prime position to take on new challenges as an artist and entertainer.

The multi-skilled beauty, who has also appeared on the multi-award winning television series "Silvana Sin Lana" and boasts hundreds of thousands of followers across social media, has two feature films coming up that will no doubt be a great showcase of her acting talent to audiences in the states. After making her mark in Latin America, Nazarena left her native Argentina behind to try her luck in Hollywood, where she's quickly gaining traction in the industry.

While admittedly sad to head to the US and leave behind Argentina, where she was a star on "Intrusos," which she refers to as "one of the most important tv shows in South America," she is resolved in her choice to make a name for herself in the states.

She explains, "I don't regret it. I always use to say 'I never regret what I do, but I do regret what I don't'."

Though it meant leaving Latin America and her tenured role as a reporter on "Intrusos" for new horizons, Nazarena says, "I knew amazing thing were waiting for me in the US." And, with roles in the upcoming feature films "Summer Nights" and "Intolerance: No More," both of which she recently shot in the U.S. will several well-known American actors, it seems Nazarena's prediction was right on the money.

The talented entertainer is quite enthusiastic in her praise of the American industry. "Everything is so organized and people are so nice, highly educated and professional. And I love that."

That being said, Nazarena is also incredibly complimentary of the professionalism in Argentina where she spent began her career in entertainment as both a television journalist and actress 10 years ago. In her opinion, the biggest difference between the two countries' entertainment industries is the scope. "There are a lot of wonderful actors, directors and producers in Argentina, but we have a small industry compared to Hollywood."

Nazarena no doubt enjoyed the perks of Argentina's lively entertainment industry where, amongst her diverse experience is the many years she spent as host of "Intrusos," the number one TV show in Argentina, Chile, Peru, Paraguay, Bolivia and Uruguay. But regardless of how much fame one accrues outside of the US, carrying that success over to the competitive Hollywood film industry isn't as easy as some might assume.

For Nazarena, a strong connection and successful working relationship with producer Angel Cassani, well-known for bridging UFC fighters to Hollywood with films such as "Never Surrender" with Quinton Jackson and Georges St-Pierre, made the transition much smoother.

She admits, "Angel was really important for me… thanks to him I was able to take my first steps in Hollywood. Although I know a lot of people in the industry, he introduced me to more people and he encouraged me to make the move. And I'm very thankful for that."

That connection led to her meeting Joseph Cross and Tara Ansley, producers of "Summer Nights." Her recollection of the casting process shines light on how, even during challenging transitions, one never knows what triumphs are around the corner.

"We met through a Skype conference cause I was in Buenos Aires at that time, my father had health issues and I had to keep him company for a few months last year. And suddenly they told me there was a part for me," explains Nazarena, who took on the role of Harmony's 'disturbed' sister. Harmony, one of the film's lead characters, being played by Victoria Justice ("Eye Candy," "Victorious").

Nazarena adds, "I was so happy to be involved in that movie. It was my first significant project in LA and I truly appreciate they had thought of me for that."

While she has to stay mum on the film's plot, she did recall how filming with the cast and crew of "Summer Nights" in the U.S. was a wonderful experience. "Everybody was so kind. I shared set with Victoria Justice and Ellar Coltrane and they were so nice to me. It was a very happy experience."

Although she has to keep details about "Summer Nights" secret, Nazarena was able to divulge a few more tidbits about "Intolerance: No More" an upcoming film produced by Yennifer Behrens and directed by the multi-talented filmmaker Sergio Guerrero. Behrens is an actress known for her work on "Desperate Housewives" and "General Hospital," while Guerrero is an Emmy-Award winning filmmaker who helmed the award-winning "A Day Without a Mexican." Each of them embody the international spirit which has drawn people to collaborating and working with Nazarena, something that doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon.

Nazarena says, "The film is about the abuse of power, which is in the spotlight these days. It's a very interesting movie. My character Lucy is a polite housewife, the mom of a little girl and the wife of one of the lead characters who's a policeman caught between the living and the dead."

Much like the confidentiality surrounding her upcoming films, which are expected to premiere later this year, Nazarena had to leave us wanting more. Though she does say, "I love producing, acting and everything related to the entertainment industry. I have a lot of confidence in myself and I know exactly what makes me different from the rest. I always work hard but I also know that luck has always been on my side. And I'm so happy and grateful to the universe for that."
