Spending Time With…Ayvianna Snow ( @AyviannaSnow )

One of things I love about hosting this website, Is that I can reach out to actors, and filmmakers, and ask them to take part in fun article series like the Spending Time With.. series. The Spending Time With.. series began as a project for me to film, and still is a project which from time to time I do film, but in between filming, I like to send out a list of pre prepared questions to people I am a fan of, and await their answers. The first Spending Time With..of 2023 is the wonderful Ayvianna Snow, who at the time of me typing this has over 50 onscreen credits to her name and shows no sign of slowing down.(and thats just credits on screen, not counting theatre appearances)

Ayvianna began her career at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama’s Youth Theatre course, then gained a B.A. (Hons.) Acting from The Arden School of Theatre. And as well as onscreen roles in film and television (such as The Lockdown Hauntings,Wyvern Hill, and The Good Wife), she has many theatre credits including  Anguish & Enthusiasm at the Library Theatre Manchester, The Hound of The Baskervilles at The Brass Works Theatre Bristol, and a UK tour of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with The Little English Theatre in which she played Titania. She has appeared in commercials, video games, music videos, and even corporate films.  To say that Ayvianna  is hard working, would be a huge understatement. 

Ayvianna can be seen in the soon to be released Video Shop Tales of Terror anthology film ( in the segment Vergessen, Directed by Michael Fausti ) and also Ripper’s Revenge (written and directed by Steve Lawson) as well as a whole host of other films and projects that Ayvianna  has been busy with. You can find out more information about those on her IMDB page 

What is one of your most favourite locations you have filmed or performed in?

I filmed The Convent in a derelict castle in Wales, and was flown to Mumbai for Hate Story IV. But I think the coolest location was the one we used for
The Tombs– we filmed in the real London Bridge Experience underneath London Bridge which was still open during the day for visitors and tourists. So we would film all night from 7pm until 7am, then have to clear out quickly before it opened again at 8am!

Do you have any ‘props or keepsakes from any of your films or shows?

I have a collection of beautiful costumes from various characters I’ve played over the years- I have Millicent’s green ball gown from Dark Nights With Poe & Munro, Elizabeth’s wedding dress from The Good Wife, and I even have the red leather catsuit from Dream Hacker! The producers were very generous in letting me keep them.

Do you remember who got your first autograph?

It was a lovely gentleman at the BFI London screening of White Colour Black. I don’t think he even knew who I was, I think he just asked me to be polite!

What is the ONE single coolest movie geek thing you own?

It’s more of a theatre thing than a movie thing, but I own a poster from Ian McKellen’s Hamlet (from the production at Theatre Royal Windosr in 2021) which is signed by the full company.

Do you prefer day shoots or night shoots?

Night shoots. I hate getting up early!

Do you read reviews of shows or films that you are in?

Yes I do but I don’t put a lot of stock in them. I tend to know myself whether a project has any value or not. I’ve been in great films that got poor reviews and vice versa. So I don’t really believe the reviews, I trust my own judgement.

Let’s shine a light on some of your past work. Which of your projects are you most proud of?

Most of my favourite films have had an important social message. Hollow was a beautifully made film about an elderly lady struggling with dementia and the strength she showed in that situation White Colour Black was about a man getting away from the drugs and debauchery of London and reconnecting with his roots and community. Black Lake was about female sexual assault and the repercussions. I remain very proud of all those films.

What’s the most difficult thing about your creative journey?

The constant auditioning and seeking work. You can never switch off and just focus on the job at hand; you always have to be looking for your next project.

And, the flipside. What’s the most enjoyable for you?

Getting to do what I love and spending time with wonderful creative people.
