Taryn Mamo Cefai, 21, is one of the stars of the upcoming film Il-Klikka, based on the popular TV series. She tells SWAG about how her involvement with the show started and about how she intends to become a successful role model for women - but not just in the arts.

Tell us a bit about your education, your career and how you ended up where you are today.

I am currently a University of Malta student, reading for a BA (Hons) in Communications and will be graduating in 2016; but my mother always said I was born to be on stage. I made my debut in the arts when I started ballet aged three but only took up theatre after being offered a scholarship by Edward Mercieca to join Stagecoach, the school for performing arts. Since then I’ve never looked back and theatre has been my life. Singing, dancing and acting. You name it, I’ve done it.


I continued my studies but after my A-levels at St Aloysius College Sixth Form I decided to take a gap year. Having been accepted at Bird College, I embarked on a journey to London where I obtained a Foundation Degree in Musical Theatre. It was a dream come true.

When I moved back to Malta I landed my first role on screen in the series Il-Klikka which opened my eyes to a whole new world: that of the mass media and the big screen. I’ve been very lucky with opportunities and I try to juggle everything in my life to my best abilities... wine helps in this.


Are there any TV or media stars that have inspired you and who you try to emulate?

I believe in the empowerment of women and I think I was lucky enough to be born in an age where female role models are increasing. One of the most inspirational women for me is Beyoncé. She’s talent, has brains and beauty all in one and she just never stops evolving into a more successful star, wife, mother and entrepreneur. That to me is real success. And I get my theatrical inspiration from stars like Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep whose talent is diverse and ageless.


What have been your best achievements in your career so far?

Some of my local credits to date include Truly Scrumptious in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Elphaba in Wicked, Nala in Lion King, Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, Dead Mum in Billy Elliot - performed in Oxford, England - and Princess Fuzzyfluff in this year’s MADC Christmas Pantomime. Of course one of my largest and most remembered roles will be that of Sarah in Il-Klikka which ran for three seasons.

Roles aside, I think my greatest achievement is managing to succeed by working hard and giving my 100% in everything I do. This includes my degree which takes up an enormous amount of my time, my part-time jobs as well as making time for my amazingly supportive family who I drive up the wall.


Tell us a bit about the film version of Il-Klikka...


The film is coming out on 18 March at Eden Cinemas. Il-Klikka occupied a big part of my life these past three years so it’ll be great to end it with a bang. Tickets sales are already open so get booking! I then have a couple of other projects in the pipe-line but I won’t kiss and tell.


Do you have any funny stories you can share from your career so far?

Oh, don’t even get me started! When I’m on set with my best friend Tezara Camilleri, there's not a moment that passes where we don’t embarrass ourselves. It’s funny because we usually find it more hilarious than the people around us which in turn makes us look a bit crazy.


Any projects lined up for the future?

It’s all about my career for me. My aim at the moment is to finish my degree and continue working in the Marketing world, but eventually I aim to be the best female entrepreneur this island has ever seen. I have big dreams and larger than life goals so they should keep me occupied for the next few years.


Who is your ideal man, and what must he do to woo you?

Oh wow, well I know it sounds cheesy but I already have my ideal man. My ideal man would be someone who supports me no matter what (because my hobbies take up a lot of my time), someone who loves food, can cook and is good around the house (because anyone who knows me can tell you I’m a hopeless case), he has to be ambitious, hard-working and someone who I can talk to and makes me laugh. It’s a long list I know but I’m very lucky to have found all of that in one man. He’s my best friend, soulmate and number one fan!


What would be your ideal date?

My ideal date would be a relaxed night in with a good bottle of wine and a home-cooked meal. With my life being always on the go, date night is one of the few times I can unwind and have a proper chat.
