House Party 3 Angela Means Interview
This month marks the 25th anniversary of the Culture Classic House Party 3! The third installment of the film series follows Kid as he is preparing to jump the broom with Veda and antics ensue. The Guild had the pleasure of interviewing Angela Means aka Veda and get her impressions of the film and get details on her current Vegan Nutrition platform.
Guild: Thanks again for taking a few minutes to visit with us about the 25th anniversary of the culture classic. How do you feel about the film today and what are your impressions on its place in the culture?
Means: When I got into comedy and acting, I had planned for my career to be short. I always wanted to have a family and knew that would be my focus. One of the things I am most proud about is that I was able to be involved in projects that have meant so much to people and still have an impact on society. This role was one of my favorites and almost can’t believe it’s been 25 years.
Guild: Our audience also enjoyed your character in Cousin Skeeter. How was that experience?
Means: That project was done the right way and at the right time. The cast was perfect and look at the careers of all of my former cast mates. Most people don’t know but Cousin Skeeter was the first live action puppet television show with a black cast.
Guild: We have recently seen you celebrated in publications for your Jack Fruit Cafe and vegan lifestyle. Any details you would like to share?
Means: My name Angela means “messenger” so it is my responsibility to spread messages. At one point it was comedy and entertainment and now it is the message of health and wellness. Over the last 15 years I have really attempted to share how you can heal the body through food. Jack Fruit Cafe makes a point to let people know what you put in your body can be just as powerful as medicine. We have all we need from the earth.
Guild: We can’t tell you how much this conversation means to us, as we close, is there anything you would like to share with our audience and your fans?
Means: Life is a journey and understand that you keep going. One setback or one success doesn’t define who you are or what you will become. Understand that things may only be for a moment. For example we have been sharing our vegan message and just recently made it to the largest Vegan Publication. Veg News Thank you for being interested in hearing my story and people can find Jack Fruit Cafe on our website and IG!
We appreciate Angela taking time to visit with us on the 25th anniversary of House Party 3!
