A Closer Look With — Laura Ochoa

What’s the most important thing you ever forgot?
The due date for this questionnaire (my bad!).

What is your perfect weekend getaway?
Anything that avoids the harsh, unforgiving rays of the sun.

What was your first job?
Janitor’s Assistance at an AMC Theatres in my teens. There used to be a Yahoo customer comment online that said AMC Studio 30 in Houston had the cleanest bathroom in the summer of 2003. I take full credit for that. I kept those bathrooms so spotless you could eat off them. And judging by the crumbs I found at the start of every shift, many people did just that.

If someone asked you to give them a random piece of advice, what would you say?
Never be embarrassed to dance to the tune of your own drum because no one is watching. People have better things to do with their time.

What instance did you not take “no” for an answer?
The kid at Baskin-Robbins who told me I had enough free samples that day. I’ll tell him when I’ve had enough!

Would you rather be hated or forgotten?
Both. I want people to hate me so much, they’ll do anything to forget me.

What’s the earliest memory you have of your childhood?
A broken xylophone.

Who can you impersonate really well?
Every European bad guy from any movie, ever, because apparently my regular voice sounds like a cheesy Indiana Jones villain crossed over with a malfunctioning Terminator. Or so I’ve been told.

What makes a party boring?
The people.

Is there a role in life you feel very honored to have?
No, any role should be honored to have me.

What traffic laws or moving violations do you always seem to break?
There are traffic laws?

What celebrity chef would you want to cater your dinner party?
The Swedish Chef from the Muppets.

What sound relaxes you?
The sound of an enemy’s defeat.

Have you ever rescued anyone or anything?
I gave a mime the wrong directions to save a kid from a very horrific birthday act. I guess it’s true, not all heroes wear capes.

How would you describe social media with one word or phrase?
Isolating.

If you could have anything named after you, what would it be?
A country.

Which do you like more: a really good book or a great movie?
Book. Always a book. With a cup of tea. Peppermint. Sweetened with honey, never sugar.
