Sweety High: Between being a singer-songwriter, an influencer and an actress, is there one role you're most passionate about?
Samantha Gangal: As much as I love singing, I feel like acting is where the majority of my passion lies. I really enjoy being able to bring a wide variety of characters and personalities to life in front of the camera.

SH: Where are all of the places we can catch your acting work at the moment?
SG: My YouTube channel is probably the one place to go see highlights of all my current and prior projects. My website www.samanthagangal.com also has clips of all my work in addition to details and info about me.
SH: If you had to pick one moment as the highlight of your career so far, what would that be?
SG: I think the highlight so far for me would be the upcoming releases of my new songs. I've been working on these for nearly a year and I'm very excited to be able to share them finally.
SH: What is the toughest thing about your line of work? What's the most rewarding?
SG: The toughest thing is the rejection. You can work really hard and do your best possible audition, but there are sometimes things out of your control. In this industry, rejection is just part of the process. The reward is when you do book something or at the very least get positive feedback for the things you are doing.
SH: Do you have any advice for people who admire you and want to accomplish the things you have?
SG: The best advice I can give is to have perseverance and patience. Keep working hard and continue to learn. It will pay off in the long run. Just don't let anyone tell you you can't do it. Try to surround yourself with people that truly support your passion.
SH: Can you tease anything about your upcoming original music debut?
SG: I have two singles I will release in the upcoming months. I'm getting ready to film videos for both tracks very soon. Two very different tracks as one is a slower, moody ballad and the other is a rocker. I'm hoping to get three or four more songs finished by the end of summer and then possibly an EP release later this year.

SH: Is there anything else you'd like to add?
SG: Just be on the lookout for my two new original songs. I'm really excited about them. I hope everyone loves them as much as I do. They will be released on all platforms very soon. You can follow me on Instagram for updates!
