Los Angeles - “Une très belle femme francaise” - a very beautiful French woman, Rachel Kylian, has fixed her sights on Hollywood stardom and appears to be on the right trajectory.
In an interview with Kylian, the exuberant, bronze-skinned beauty told me that since she was a kid she loved art. “I started dancing when I was seven, and I took a class in painting and theater,” she said.
The multi-talented actress, model, dancer, and voice-over-artist continued, “I quickly realized that I love being on stage, entertaining people. Ending in Los Angeles was the logical path.”
Born in France, Kylian, the middle one of three daughters, visited Hollywood 10 years ago at age 16; that same year, she began modeling, on runways, in beauty pageants, and print. She returned to Hollywood in 2010 to focus on a career in acting.
Kylian said her mom is her inspiration. “She is a very ambitious person. She is a very talented Chef and entrepreneur.”
The aspiring actress speaks four languages fluently – French, German, English, and Swahili and speaks Spanish on a conversation level.
She has traveled the world – been to countries some have never heard of. She’s been to Tanzania and Morroco and all over Europe. She has been to many major cities in the U.S. and has traveled to the Far East. But Los Angeles is where the “belle femme francaise” has settled and is making a name for herself.
Kylian has been in a number of music videos, TV series, and commercials. And as voiceover artist, she is the French voice of Western Union commercials and the voice of Lucia, one of the principle characters of the Spanish TV show Gavilanes’ that is broadcast over the French TV network, France O.
She has had several supporting roles in films. She spoke of working as a supporting actress in “Black November,” a story based on actual events about the struggle for Nigeria's petroleum-rich Niger delta in which she said working with greats like Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Kim Bassinger, Mickey Rourke, Vivica Fox, Ann Heche, and director Jeta Amata was “a great experience.” She said, “I love being on set with very talented people, so I can learn from them.”
Kylian just finished a BET promo project where she was a body-double for Gabrielle Union in the upcoming series "Being Mary Jane." And she is currently in New York wrapping up French and German voice overs in post production on Woody Allen's latest movie "Magic in the Moonlight."
Two weeks ago the multi-talented artist was in San Diego on a photo shoot for Blue Cross-Blue Shield.
Currently, Kylian's focus is acting, but she also loves to dance. The beautiful, brunette, although not a professional dancer, is trained in ballet, burlesque, and hip-hop. “I love to dance and am open for dancing opportunities,” Kylian said.
She also said her younger sister “dances ballet at a very high level and wants to dance professionally.”
Kylian works daily in an effort to improve her acting skills. You might spot her in the background on any one of a number of network and cable TV shows. “Hart of Dixie,” “New Girl,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “House of Lies,” "Real Husbands of Hollywood,"and many more.
Rachel Kylian is a rare find in the sea of starlets hoping to find fame in Hollywood. And with her natural beauty, her focus, and her willingness to learn from others, she may soon reach her goal of becoming a “very successful and recognized actress.”
