Actress and musician Jillian Shea Spaeder (“Godmothered” on Disney+) chatted about her new short “The Noise.”

She wrote and produced this short (on the topic of an eating disorder), and it was directed by Bryce Gheisar.

‘The Noise’

On the idea for “The Noise,” she said, “I wrote ‘The Noise’ when I was struggling with my mental health. I wanted to personify the voices in my head on film.”

Regarding her daily motivations as an actress and musician, she said, “I just love creating! It is my favorite thing to do. I also look up to creators like Holly Humberstone and Jennifer Lawrence.”

She is hoping to raise awareness on mental health with this short. “I hope viewers take away the need to check in with themselves and others more,” she said. “Some of the happiest-seeming people can still be struggling. Talking to friends and family is the first step to improving mental health.”

The digital age

On being an entertainer in the digital age, she said, “I love it! We live in a world where we can create and put things out without needing to be a part of a giant company.”

Future plans

Regarding his future plans, she shared, “I hope to continue writing, acting, producing, and making music my whole life. I can’t see myself doing anything else.”

Advice for hopefuls that wish to go into the entertainment industry

For hopefuls that wish to go into the entertainment business, she said, “My best advice for young and aspiring artists would be to do what you like.”

“It’s easy to fall into the trap of trying to create things that other people will like… but this takes away creative freedom and makes it a less fun process,” she added.


On her definition of the word success, she said, “Success to me means creating things I love and finishing things I start. I try not to define success by views, or streams. My definition of success is only based on things I can control!”
