-- In our effort to hold true to the WIFTA mission, WIFTA strives to support our members, helping them to network with one another and to showcase the vast talents and capabilities that they possess. This month, we focus our Member Spotlight on Jwaundace Candece.
Candece is an a talent hybrid; a mixture of stunt woman and actress, making her self-proclaimed moniker of Action Actress very fitting. She's appeared on some of the hottest shows on television, including The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, CSI
as well as blockbuster films like Dreamgirls, The Help
and Hunger Games: Catching Fire
. Her past has been a mixture of both stunt work and roles but this April, audiences will really get to see Candece in action as she takes on the role of "Camille Thompson" on ABC's new hit series Resurrection
. Those episodes are currently slated to air April 27 and May 4, 2014 at 9p EST / 8p C. We recently caught up with her for a quick interview and caught a glimpse into her world. Check out the interview with Jwaundace Candece and to learn how to contact her at: http://www.WIFTA.org/MemberSpotlight
