Before Angela Gots '90 appeared in the hit shows The L Word and Madame Secretary, Angela got her start on the RSS stage and remembers her time at RSS fondly. It was here that she began to explore acting in a school production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream. Angela says, “RSS holds a very special place in my heart."
This winter she will share the screen with Jessica Chastain in Aaron Sorkin’s “Molly’s Game,” a biopic about Molly Bloom, an Olympic skier who hosted exclusive, high stakes, poker games. Angela was also thrilled to hear about the RSS Drama program. “It’s such a great thing to start young children in building the imagination and acting muscle in the brain.” For students who want to pursue acting professionally, Gots said, “Always remember that dreams can come true if you are determined to work hard, and remember to take bumps in the road as lessons that propel you forward, not take you off the path!”
