The holidays are just around the corner and it’s always fun to usher them in with a new movie. Almost Christmas opened in theaters on Friday. My good friend, actor, Valeria Zunzun told me one of her friends, fellow actor, Rachel Kylian, was in the movie.
Last year at Valeria’s birthday party, I had met Rachel briefly. I was taken by her beauty; she was striking. Of course I wanted to learn more about her skin and beauty regimen at that time, but the party atmosphere wasn’t the best setting. Rachel definitely is a true classic beauty as well as a modern one with a lovely elegant way about her. Almost a year later and with Almost Christmas just opening, I asked Valeria to snag me an interview with Rachel.
Here’s a brief Q&A on who this international beauty is, her career and of course, her beauty regimen.
