Interviewer: Hello Anikka. What a thrill to get to interview you.
Anikka Albrite: Thanks, this is fun.
Interviewer: So tell us how you made the leap into the role of a porn starlet.
Anikka Albrite: Like lots of women in porn I bounced around from one job or career to another and then woke up one day with bills to pay and needing to save money, so I thought maybe the porn industry would be a good move.
Interviewer: The bills do have a way of piling up, don’t they?
Anikka Albrite: Yeah, plus I wanted money to work on an advanced college degree. I love to learn and education is important to me, but tuition is costly. I’m really passionate about acting – and who isn’t passionate about sex? So it seemed like a perfect fit. I got a good agent and now here I am.
Interviewer: Was that totally new and foreign territory for you, to be in front of the camera and acting in movies?
Anikka Albrite: No, actually I did a lot of acting even when I was younger. I was in theater and so it has been an interest of mine for a long time. I really love the challenge of playing a role where I really have to try to understand what that person or character I’m playing is going through and what makes them tick. To me that is what makes a role believable and brings it to life on the screen. If you can do that it’s going to be a much more interesting movie.
Interviewer: You make it look so easy on screen, but I imagine that it takes a lot of hard work and professional dedication, right?
Anikka Albrite: Yeah, and as an actress I have to take really good care of my body, too, since it’s on full display when I make movies. So I spend a lot of time exercising, that’s a big part of my day, and I eat healthy and try to get enough sleep. Then there is the work that you have to put in at the studio. But when you have a fun team of great pros around you that makes it so much better, and you all collaborate together to create – which is amazing.
Interviewer: Tell us a little bit about your background and upbringing, if you will, please.
Anikka Albrite: I have lived a lot of places. As a kid were moved around and I lived in Colorado, Wisconsin, and Arizona. I grew up mostly in Arizona, before moving to California. I loved the outdoors, and spent lots of time outside. That got me really interested in wildlife and science. Even as a child I would spend hours pouring through books reading about scientific things and nature, and I developed a real fascination with the human body and human anatomy. The older I got, as I become an adult, that became a wonderful fascination with human sexuality.
Interviewer: Does that mean you were kind of a nerd who was really into nature?
Anikka Albrite: I lived in my head a lot growing up, creating my own fantasies. I guess now that I’m a porn star I get to act out some of my adult fantasies. Not just sexual ones, either. I have always fantasized about being able to travel the world and visit new places, and I get to do lots of that now that I have a successful career.
Interviewer: Are you a fan of porn, were you watching it before you became an actress, or is it just a career path for you?
Anikka Albrite: Oh yeah, I have a lot of passion and am a super sensual person so I was watching porn and getting turned-on by it long before I got into the industry. I used to think about how it would be to go into acting as a porn actress, and I started to do some research to find out what this kind of life and career might be like, before I finally went for it.
Interviewer: What’s a big turn on for you, when you’re engaged in sex with someone who has that special sexual chemistry that just makes everything click?
Anikka Albrite: Lots of things, but eye contact is right up there at the top of the list. Eye contact makes everything so much more intimate, and makes intimacy so much more intense in that great, sizzling hot way that is so electric and sensual and erotic.
Interviewer: What do you do in your free time, off the movie set?
Anikka Albrite: Like I said I love to spend lots of time traveling, and I love to explore new and different cultures and places and people. But I guess I’m a little bit of an adrenaline junkie too because I do things like scuba diving and sky diving. Talk about a thrill, jumping out of a plane so high up that the houses look like pieces on a Monopoly game, that’s wild. But I have a quiet side so I also enjoy reading a book, playing my flute, visiting museums, watching plays, chilling out on the beach.
Interviewer: You play the flute?
Anikka Albrite: Yep. Some guys think that’s pretty hot, which I think is kind of funny. I also ride horses, so I’m a rider who knows how to play the flute. I guess that could sound kind of sexy if you’re a guy, come to think of it.
Interviewer: Is it true you are a sci-fi fan?
Anikka Albrite: I am totally into sci-fi, that really brings out my nerdy side. Like I said, I have always been really into science, and I am also really into fantasy, so for me sci-fi is kind of the best of both worlds.
Interviewer: What’s on your iPod these days?
Anikka Albrite: My favorite musical artists are kind of old school. Bobby Darin, Pink Floyd, The Beatles. I also love classical music like Mozart and Tchaikovsky. I have a pretty broad range of musical interests. I really love music.
Interviewer: For someone who has not yet had the pleasure of becoming familiar with your work, where should they start?
Anikka Albrite: I would recommend the film Anikka, which was directed by Mason for HardX studios. I think it gives you a good idea of what I am all about as a person as well as a performer.
