“Won’t Go Home Without You!”
I mean of course, not literally, but all the fans out there by now have guessed what song I am referring to, right?
Welcome to Watch Tank and today we are counting down picks to reveal the top ten things you can learn from Tania Raymonde.
Also, about the opening line, we need not mention but this is the music video for Maroon 5 in which Tania appeared. Didn’t we all love her there?
Before we go into more detail about her, how about a quick rundown on the American actress’ background?
Born in Los Angeles, California, on March 22, 1988, Raymonde jumpstarted her career by portraying the character of Cynthia Sanders in the sitcom Malcolm in the Middle (2000-2002). This was followed by playing the role of Alex Rousseau in the series Lost (2006-2010).
In April 2015, Raymonde joined the cast of the series The Last Ship, and is currently starring in the current Amazon Video series Goliath.
With that amazing career, I am sure that there is lot to learn from this American beauty.
So, what else are we waiting for? Let us start the countdown.
10. Wide cultural acceptance
Lost actress Tania was born to a Jewish father and a Catholic mother. It is therefore quite obvious that she was raised with both Jewish and Catholic values. Raymonde was blessed to be able to celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas. Thus, she had total cultural exposure while visiting the church and the synagogue. Now, what is indeed interesting is that when a child gets exposed to the rituals, cultures, and beliefs of more than just one religion, the exposure benefits them and gives them the freedom to embrace many things..
Seeing the diversity in the characters she plays, it is easy to say she owes it to her multicultural background.
9. Greatest fan of horror movies
Horror is scary, and I think many of you will agree.
But not for Raymonde. Tania is a self-proclaimed fan of horror movies. She feels that she has a high tolerance for blood and gore. Raymonde doesn’t scare easily, and she is also proud of high her tolerance level, something many of us should emulate.
So, what can we learn from her? We can learn that endurance and tolerance are virtues that should be present in every human.
PS: Raymonde’s preference for horror movies made her believe that 3D is the best medium for making the horror flicks. What’s your take on that?
8. Take chances in life
Tania Raymonde loves her life as an actor. She loves the fact that she gets to meet, interact with, and work with a lot of different people. In the journey of life, you never know who you will cross paths with.
So, it’s best to try to maintain a healthy relationship with each person you meet.
Raymonde loves meeting new people because she never knows who she will be working with in her next venture.
The fact remains that meeting so many different kinds of people also enriches you because you get to learn from their vivid stories and life experiences. So, never miss a chance to meet new people.
7. Love for work
As an actor, Raymonde believes that she should take up projects on movies from every genre possible. This clearly demonstrates her immense love for her work and career. If you like something and care about your work, then show immense love and passion in getting it done. That makes the work easier. Also, trying new genres will help you become more versatile.
Do you think one can love their work passionately without become a workaholic? Let us know in the comments below.
6. Young minds have a better ability to grasp
Tania Raymonde was seventeen when she started acting in quite a few television series like Lost and The Guardian. Acting at such a young age has given her immense experience, which Raymonde will cherish for the rest of her life. Though starting when to work and focussing on one’s career is a personal choice entirely, it is also a fact that young minds can grasp well and learn things better, which will result in improvement and better performance.
If you didn’t start young, then no problem! Never let your mind grow old, and be open to various learnings to be able to reach the heights of productivity.
5. Love for nature
Tania portrays the character of Doctor Emma Collins in the movie Deep Blue Sea 3. The movie deals with the dangers of climate change and the importance of the conservation of sharks.
Do we see some kind of similarity here? Yes, we do! True to her character, Raymonde in real life is also a nature lover and works for causes against cruelty towards the wild. Messing with nature and blurring the fine line between cruelty and progress are among the things she hates. This a very significant lesson that we can all learn from her.
So, what is the lesson here? Start loving nature and stop all the cruelty.
4. Women empowerment
Tania Raymonde is our favourite by now, and at this point, she stole our hearts already. This is why.
Almost all the characters that she has portrayed reveal what a strong woman is. Raymonde is a performer par excellence, but also gives importance to women empowerment. Through her movies, she spreads the message that all woman should be strong and independent. We can’t help admiring her for this.
3. Starring in a musical biopic
Soft, rhythmic music touches the soul. We all believe this, and Raymonde is also no exception. When asked about her dream role, the Last Ship actor promptly answered that she hopes to star in a biopic of Amy Winehouse. Raymonde has always been an ardent fan
of Amy’s music and would love to be in a movie related to her life. Well, all of us have also been mesmerized by Amy’s music, right?
Music is also a great way to let loose after a long day. So, taking our cue from Raymonde, let us dedicate today’s evening to Raymonde and her fantastic work. Wine, anybody?
2. Jack of all trades
We are currently loving Raymond in the Amazon Video series Goliath. But did you have the slightest idea that she is also wearing a director’s hat? Tania Raymonde is currently working as a director in her feature film titled Little Saigon, a crime thriller set in the backdrop of Orange County. She is also the writer of this movie. Now that is something truly remarkable! Taking inspiration from Raymonde, even we can indulge in mastering another craft, and the only question is, “When do we start?”
Here are some more things you may not have known about Raymonde:
- Raymonde’s love for action movies
Tania Raymonde doesn’t shy away from action movies. She remembers growing up watching action movies like The Expendables or Fast Five and always wanting to be a part of movies like that.
- Raymonde wants to swim with the sharks
From the interviews of Tania Raymonde, it is evident that swimming with the sharks is a wish she developed while shooting for the movie Deep Blue Sea 3. The next time Raymonde visits South Africa, she said that she would love to cage dive with the great whites over there.
1. Social media postings
Tania Raymonde is certainly not an anti-social person. Her Instagram handle indicates that she has a colourful and conscious mind and loves all things bright and nice. Raymonde is high on life, which is again quite evident in her pictures, and we wish her good luck in all her future achievements.
Tania Raymonde is an excellent actor and also an activist of the highest value. We love her for her acting chops and respect her for her concern and duty towards nature and the wild. Possessing that rare combination of good traits is rare and not often seen in people. We hope to see more of her work both on and off screen.
On that note, we conclude this chapter on Raymonde. So, how did you like it? Did we miss out on anything? Or do you have more to share? Let us know in the comments below.
