Sara Sulander – An Actress and Singer Shares Her Dreams With Us

Sara Sulander, an actress and singer from Finland. Tell us a little more about yourself.

Hello everyone! My name is Sara Sulander, and I’m an actress and singer. So far my bigger roles have mostly been within theater, acting and singing (and dancing) in plays and musicals, and now I am transitioning into film and TV, and hopefully soon to the recording studio. I also do stage managing, and I’m interested in the assistant director’s job, which is almost equivalent to stage managing, but within film and TV. I’m originally from Finland, moved to Australia for a year in 2007, and then moved to Los Angeles, California in 2011. I lived in L.A. for four years, and since then I’ve been in Finland, working on moving back to L.A.

As a singer, what is your plan?

My immediate plan is to find songwriters that we can collaborate with. I have ideas, thoughts and themes, and together with talented songwriters I believe we can make great songs. While I’m looking for songwriters, I will record cover songs to publish on my upcoming website. My ultimate plan is to be recording songs regularly, collaborating with other artists and singers, and performing the songs around the world.

What kind of music do you sing?

I don’t like to categorize myself into one genre. I grew up listening to all sorts of music, and I would like to mix them up. I want my music to be inspired by R’n’B, Samba, Old School Rock n’ Roll, Pop, Salsa and maybe a little bit of Raggae and Reggaeton. I love real instruments and a good beat with a lot of bass. That being said, I do want to throw in the mix some emotional, slower ballads as well.

As an actress, what’s next?

Find an agent! As I mentioned before, I am transitioning into film and TV, and together with good representation, I can get opportunities to audition for roles that are equal to my skill level. I’m also working on my acting reel, which I will publish on my upcoming website.

Which do you prefer; theatre, film, TV-shows, commercials, musicals etc.?

Mainly, I want to act in films, theatre plays and musicals. I’d also like to do commercials. When it comes to TV-shows, I’d be more than happy to guest star in single episodes here and there.

What other parts of the entertainment industry are you interested in?

I’m interested in stage managing, being an assistant director and maybe one day more producing (I’ve produced couple of projects so far). I’m also interested in writing, but it is very challenging for me. I am in the process of writing a TV-show, and have some ideas for movies. But for now, I want to mainly focus on acting and singing! When those aspects of my carrier are snowballing, I can share my focus on my other interests, as well.

If you had to pick ONE, what would be your piece of advice for someone in this line of work?

Ask for help! No matter what kind of work you are in, you can’t, and you are not expected to, to do it all by yourself. This is a piece of advice that I am still working on myself. Right now, I am going to take my own advice, and ask for help from You. I am looking for songwriters, an agent, a webpage designer, any and all help to get my acting and singing carrier going full speed forward.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years I see myself having a carrier as a solo performing and recording artist, as well as an actress within film and theatre. Regarding my personal life, I hope to see myself with my own family of six kids.

Los Angeles – Aug 26 2015


Hi EuroCirclers!!We’re back!We’ve organised an eventful night at a sophisticated, book-lined bar featuring classic cocktails, old world ambience & a lively atmosphere. The Wellesbourne was voted one of the best bars in LA by The Travel Channel in June 2015.Complete with a fireplace, large leather sofas and chairs, wood panelling, a library and a game room, the Wellesbourne is more like a Victorian social club than a bar. Classy atmosphere aside, this welcoming gathering spot is manned by a crew of expert mixologists, who would just as soon concoct a custom cocktail as they would one of the many excellent drinks on the formal menu. Even that selection includes vintage drinks that you don’t see everywhere, chief among them the Harvey Wallbanger and the grasshopper.The Wellesbourne
10929 West Pico Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90064
310.474.0102

On the night, The Wellesbourne has a LIVE band singing some amazing Latin/French numbers.

Let’s all put in some effort to make this a really big and successful event – invite all the people you know, bring with you friends, family and neighbours. Let’s let our hair down and have a great evening.

CONFIDENTIAL Beverly Hills is a nightclub/lounge fusion conveniently located in the center of Beverly Hills. Behind the black padded leather doors, from the moment you walk down the steps into this modern speak-easy, CONFIDENTIAL Beverly Hills attempts to deceive you into thinking the motif is old world aristocratic, with crystal chandeliers and a white baby grand piano. However, behind the corner awaits a modern European discothèque-like lounge complete with large booths in a plethora of textured leathers and finished cement floors that appear almost glass-like. This nightclub/lounge fusion is the ideal place to go for a glamorous night out in one of the most posh cities in the world.

Sonny Sarna – From London to LA doing high tech recruitment

We wanted to take a moment to get to know Sonny Sarna, who recently joined EuroCircle Los Angeles team. Sonny is from London – let’s get to know him in his own words.

Hi Sonny, who are you in your own words?

Born and bred in London, England. I moved to LA in the summer of 2013, having previously lived in Philadelphia for 2 years. I’ve been involved in the Recruitment/Sales industry for the past 10 years and was bought onto co manage 2 recruitment search firms, ViGjobs and Tech in a Haystack – both highly tech focused. We’re heading up the recruitment efforts for the amazing start-ups community on our doorstep – The Silicon Beach, as well as continuing working with clients worldwide.

What do you enjoy most about LA, now when you have more experience, how’s the quality of life compared to the UK?

London is an amazing place to grow up, live, have a business, HOWEVER… the weather is only good for a few days in the summer. Compare that to the life in London, ummmmm where do I start – “the weather, the opportunities, the people, the lifestyle, the food, the cars, did I mention the weather” in LA……Mama Mia! (that’s why I’m here and staying for good 🙂

Where is your family now?

I have family in the East Coast (Philly and Jersey) and in England. I miss all of my friends, but have definitely started to make more connections out here and building on my friends list. I’m a people person, so if you see me, come up and say hi!

What is important to you in life – money, food, family, hobbies, friends, travel — Why??

Money is very important to me, especially being in a Sales environment. My family, friends and career are extremely important to me and I am so happy to have them in my life. I’m an amazing cook, like really amazing. I’ve been cooking since I was 2 years old :-), just kidding, I couldn’t reach the gas till I was 4 🙂

Since I moved to LA, I’ve become an expert hiker, biker, liker of lots of new things. There’s not much I dislike.

What would you like anyone know and appreciate about your country? (food, music, culture, people, history)

We are very straight forward – almost blunt about everything we say or do. Yes, we can be loud and sometime come across rude, but its just how the culture is in London. We are hardworking, very innovative and always get the job done. Food is amazing, I mean Fish and Chips, Sausage Rolls, Marmite, Rhubarb Crumble and Custard, how can I forget the most important Chocolate – OMG 🙂

Just to throw it out there, Tea has to be English, my favourite is PG Tips. Stay away from Lipton.

What is your favorite food?

I am a big foodie and love to check out the restaurants with friends and try new cuisines. (I probably should prefer Indian food since my heritage is Indian, but LA is struggling with a good Indian restaurant, certainly nothing like England) I like cooking all sorts, Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Indian and sometime even I don’t know how to describe it, but it taste brilliant!

Could you share with us what are your plans for the Future?

Lots of plans for the future. I’m single – so find a girlfriend/wife, learn to surf, jump off a plane, become an IndyCar Driver and yeah – start a food truck!

Seriously though, I want to grow our Recruitment Business and build a name in the market for what we do. I want to be involved with new ventures, both local and international. I want to invest time, money and energy into things that I enjoy, things that I believe will better our lives and the lives of our future generations. And did I mention I wanna start a food truck 🙂

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

That’s a tough question. I love London and would immediately go back, but rather go to Barcelona or Venice. It oasis culture, fashion, food, friendly people and they love the Brits…

I love Europe in general, the culture, the people, the food BUT I wouldn’t be in Los Angeles if I had any thoughts of moving from here. I’m here to stay LA, you’ll definitely see me around.

If you were granted a wish – what would it be?

HAPPINESS… 🙂
