Actress Jaime Adler Talks Karma's a B**** and Her Big Plans for 2023

19-year-old actress Jaime Adler is gearing up to make 2023 her biggest year yet.

The U.K. star moved to Los Angeles five years ago to pursue her dreams as an actress, moving up from plays and musical theater on the West End to film and TV roles, and that risk is paying off in a big way. She has two big films coming before the end of the year, and while one is still being kept under wraps, the other, Karma's a B****, already has us intrigued.

The movie is a YA mystery-thriller about a teen girl named Charley (played by Isabella Blake-Thomas) who's doing the best she can to manage all of the ups and downs of high school while also carrying out her dying mother's final wishes—and also dealing with the ramifications of a curse. The film also stars Natasha Henstridge, Tony Todd, Matt Cornett and Matt Rife, and while Jaime can't reveal much about her place in the film just yet, we just know this one will have us on the edges of our seats. Ahead of the big release, we got the chance to chat with Jaime all about her love of acting and what the year will bring, and she shared it all with us in the interview below.

Sweety High: When did you discover your passion for acting? Was there any specific a-ha moment that made you realize it was the path for you?

Jaime Adler: I discovered my passion for acting at a really young age, starting in commercials. When I was 6 years old, I booked the role of Gretl in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sound of Music U.K. tour. I loved everything about it, from performing on stage to working with the incredibly talented children and adults in the show and traveling across the country to some amazing theatres and performing to live audiences. Even though I was so young, this was truly the moment for me, and I was determined to continue doing what I love.

SH: Can you tell us a little bit about Karma's a B****? What is the film about, and is there anything you can tell us about your character in the film?

JA: Karma's a B**** is a supernatural thriller about a young girl called Charley, who's not only navigating high school and falling in love, but also trying to carry out her dying mother's final wishes. In the movie, I play the role of Chloe Winters. My character is a key turning point in Charley's story, but I can't say too much more as I don't want to give away any spoilers. What I can tell you is that I needed to take stunt training on set, and it proved to be a very different role from any I had played before.

SH: What was your most memorable moment on the set? Did you have any favorite interactions with the cast?

JA: The moments that really stuck for me, aside from working with a hugely talented cast, was working with the stunt coordinator and shooting at night. It's always amazing to learn something new, challenge yourself and broaden your experiences.


SH: What are you looking forward to most in 2023?

JA: This year, I'm really looking forward to the release—and premieres—of the films I've played a part in, and I'm also really excited to fly back to the U.K. to see my family and friends.
