Name: Robin Sheby

Thank you Robin for taking the time to answer these questions for Streamingworld Magazine. I hope that people outside the social media/media platform you normally stream on get to know you better. Please fill these out with detail the best you can and respond to them via E-Mail.

Who are you Robin Shelby, why do you have such a large fan following?

I am an actress who has been extremely fortunate and so very lucky to have people supporting what I do. I have been lucky to get to have quite a few Ghostbusters fans become not only supporters and followers of my work, but friends as well.

We know you as “Slimer” From Ghost Busters movies. How did you end up with the role, and what other roles have you done besides Ghost Busters?

I had worked on the film Willow prior to getting cast in GB2. I was the troll that was at the top of a bridge with Willow and gets torn in two by a very nasty looking two-headed creature. I also was doing tons of theatre in the San Francisco Bay Area, and singing at Kings Great America when I shot Ghostbusters 2. Here is a link your fans can go to so they can check out all of my work.!

How difficult was it to play the role of slimmer?

It was probably the most fun, and the most difficult thing I’ve worked on. I’d absolutely do it again.

What made you get into the role of acting? Is it easy to memorize lines? Or is being an actor difficult to achieve?

I got into acting around age 11 at a Children’s Musical Theatre company in Northern California. I was immediately bitten by the acting bug. Memorizing lines for me can be easy or difficult. It all depends on if the way it’s written and if it’s close to the way you may speak. Being an actor is difficult and you will deal with more rejection than getting the job. You have to love it to keep going.

Do you have any special projects you are working on now? Is there anything new that we should keep our eye out for?

I shot an amazing project called “Sins Unveiled” which I’m very excited about. We’re also still producing out Web Series called “2 Cops and a Car” which my husband Sean Spence created and wrote, and we are both producing and starring in it.

What are your hobbies? What do you like to do for fun?

I have a dog that we love spending time with. I also enjoy cooking and baking. My husband is a huge collector of Starbucks gift cards, and we both treat it like a scavenger hunt in finding them. J

Have you worked with different actors/actresses before? If so how was that experience for you, what were the negative sides and the positive sides?

Yes, and it can be intimidating at first if you have respected their work for some time. You quickly learn you are all in the same boat trying to get a good outcome together and the “fangirl” in me goes away and the actress in me takes over.

Who has been an influence on your life, and why?

Personally, my Dad has had a huge influence on me in not giving up, and appreciating the little victories and each person who has helped you along the way. A huge influence on me as a little girl was watching many re-runs of “The Carol Burnett Show”. She was and is simply amazing.

Where do you see yourself 10 years from now with acting? What about outside of acting?

I hope I’m able to continue to be a working actress 10 years from now. I’d love to continue to improve on my cooking and make things that scare me now with ease.

Do you have any tips for new inspiring actors or older actors who are struggling?

Network with other actors, keep your eyes on the prize and if it’s something you truly want…don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t achieve it.

Is there anything else you would like to mention in closing?
