Interviewer: Please tell us what do you feel is your biggest achievement?
Rosa Blasi: Being a great mom to my 10 year old, and a step-mom to another 10 year old. Both girls. Also having done almost 300 episodes of television I feel pretty good about. I knew what I wanted to do when I was younger than 8 years old and set out to accomplish it. I also wrote a comedic memoir called Jock Itch: Misadventures of a Retired Jersey Chaser in 2011 (Published by Harper Collins)
Interviewer: Besides acting, what are you passionate about?
Rosa Blasi Therapy and food. Really great theatre and movies. I’m a glutton for a good massage. Horses.
Interviewer: Why and when did you decide to pursue your acting career?
Rosa Blasi: I was very young when I knew I was going to do this the rest of my life, and I didn’t have anyone telling me I couldn’t or it would be difficult. My parents are the reason I do this for a living, they gave me the confidence that I could be “whatever I wanted” and didn’t tell me about the odds of failing.
Interviewer: How would you describe Barb Thunderman from The Thundermans?
Rosa Blasi: Not the best parent as her kids are always sneaking off and getting into trouble. But a loving mom, a little bit of a goof and her and Hank are always thinking they are cool (they are not).
Interviewer: What is your favorite scene on The Thunderman?
Rosa Blasi: I loved the episode where the kids turned us back into teenagers!
Interviewer: So many celebrities are committed to public service, setting a great example for their peers in terms of being involved with charities and the community. What causes are important to you, and what do you do to support them?
Rosa Blasi: I am an intern at a sober living house called Miriam’s House for single mothers and their children. Although I do not have an addiction, SO many people’s lives are affected directly or indirectly by this.
Interviewer: How would you describe the relationship between Phoebe and Barb Thunderman?
Rosa Blasi: think Barb is super proud of Phoebe and Phoebe is receptive to her advice.
Interviewer: If you have chance to travel the world with anyone, who you will choose?
Rosa Blasi: Probably my family (husband and kids and my parents).
Interviewer: What is like working with Kira Kosarin?
Rosa BlasiWell she keeps getting tall and it makes me feel super short LOL. Kira is a true roll model in every way. She is brilliant, talented, funny, healthy (mentally and physically), she makes good choices, she is a consummate professional. Her parents did a GREAT job raising her.
Interviewer: If you were not an actress, what would you be up to now?
Rosa Blasi: I would be a therapist.
Interviewer: How can your fans interact with you online? And what’s your fan mail address?
Rosa Blasi: I don’t have a fan mail address anymore. I get mail via my agents Bresler Kelly and Associates in Los Angeles. I have an instagram account @therosablasi I am fairly active on.
Interviewer: Please tell us what do you feel is the biggest challenge in your acting career?
Rosa Blasi It takes a horrific toll on your self-esteem. You are the product, so when you are being rejected….YOU are being rejected. There is no way to not take that personally.
Interviewer: How do you strike the balance between family and your career?
Rosa Blasi TIME MANAGEMENT!
Interviewer: which is your favorite Sport:
Rosa Blasi: None. Can’t stand sports, Favorite Music: Hamilton and Hip Hop, Travel Destination: Hawaii or anywhere with a beach
Favorite TV Show: Girls, Shameless, Real Time with Bill Maher, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
Interviewer: Now for my last question: what do you want to say to those who wish to pursue their careers in Hollywood?
Rosa Blasi : Don’t do it, unless you want this more than anything else in the world and you are willing to commit and dedicate yourself to the craft. I did 42 theatre shows before ever moving out to Los Angeles. I took voice lessons for years. Studying at the Second City conservatory in Chicago, I believe that is why I was successful. You have to do the work. I know that this is the era of YouTube stars, reality TV fame over talent…but that lasts 15 minutes. That’s not career longevity.
