July 25, 2011 - PRLog -- Mae Flores was born in Quezon City, Philippines. When she was 3 years old, her mother enrolled her at the Cultural Center of the Philippines where she studied dance. She was also accepted into the Children Repertory Theatre in Makati and various reputable dance academies in Manila, where she studied dance, theatre and music. When she was 11 years old, Mae Flores moved with her family to Chicago, where her mother and aunt continued to nurture her performing arts training. She later moved to Los Angeles, where she concentrated on her acting. Mae has appeared in small roles within independent films, as well as commercials. Her big break arrived when she was chosen as one of the leads in the feature film, “Atlantis Down”, which she credits as the turning point in her life and her career.

Director and Producer Max Bartoli and Executive Producer Ethan Marten were casting their Sci-Fi feature film Atlantis Down both in L.A. and on the East Coast. They were looking for undiscovered talent. Flores’ name was floated past the two motion picture executives. At their request, Flores had her West Coast audition, and the digital files were sent East. The producers viewed Flores’ audition, and liked what they saw.

“We had been looking for a talented Asian actress with a different look for months,” said Director/Producer Max Bartoli “We were casting in L.A., and Richmond, VA and all of a sudden this girl came out of nowhere and amazed us. It was one of the best cold auditions I have ever seen. What really struck me were her acting instincts. Ethan and I looked at each other knowing we had found the right person for our character”.

“She was a real asset,” says Executive Producer Marten. “Mae’s gift immediately broke through during auditions. She was fresh, energetic, and real.” Marten adds, “Working with her has been an equal pleasure. The demands of this production were not easy on our actors. Producing a sci-fi is never easy, especially when you have to deal with a lot of special effects, CGI and 14-hour shooting days. Mae was marvelous on camera and on set.”

Bartoli and Marten agree, The Filipino community can be proud of their soon-to-be breakout star. “This star will shine brightly for many years to come.”
