Actress Rachel Boston did not spend 40 days and 40 nights in the desert. But she did escape to the wasteland to soothe a broken heart. Today, wearing a bright red dress with ruffles on the sleeves, you will never know that she has experienced a dark day. Part of this spirit comes from her background.
She grew up in a close-knit family in Tennessee, which she called the “mountain.” Her grandparents were married for 56 years; her parents were married for a lifetime. Although it may not be “Hollywood”, this lifestyle fits the role she aspires to play.
On New Year’s Day, she starred in “Christmas Rose” on Hallmark Channel, telling the story of a young woman who inherited the heavy work of building a float for the Rose Parade at the last minute. When the demanding project supervisor intervenes, her task becomes complicated.
The stars of “Witches of the East”, “American Dream” and “500 Days of Summer” said that she understood the team spirit of her family when she was 7 years old. “My father built the house where we grew up. It was a very different experience; we moved in before the wall was in, and there was no hot water when we moved in.
My parents made it this time. Take risks,” she said. “It showed me a different way of life. We lived in a very cozy little house. Then my little brother was born, and my dad decided to build a house.
I think it made me understand first for us and ours. The family provides food, shelter and clothes for work, but I also began to understand that many people do not have hot water, just like that kind of luxury.
“Some things in my mind have changed, and I have become highly sensitive to what is happening around me that I may not have been exposed to. I think this also shapes my vision of helping others. Many children don’t have what we have. . We are all connected.
I remember that very clearly.” When she was 17 in Boston, she moved to New York to try her luck as an actress. She said she was not afraid, even though she really had nothing to do with it. “I definitely did it with my own two feet and a lot of hopes, dreams and willpower,” she said.
