There's a lot more to discuss about Allie Sparks than the killer dance moves, amazing portfolio and passionate drive that propelled her to take on Vegas. Within a few weeks she's appearing in music videos performing at some major venues and dominating casting after casting.
With a name that evokes star presence and glamour take a moment to get to know the incredible Allie Sparks.
There is so much to tell, I don’t even know where to start! Basically, I’m just your average chick that has always been self-driven and passionate for dancing, acting, singing, and modeling...everything to do with being an artist! I am a college graduate with a degree in public health, but instead of pursuing a career in that, I wanted to finally pursue my dreams after spending my life focusing on school. I would rather use my knowledge in health by helping people for free because I believe that everyone should know how to take care of their bodies without having to pay thousands to a nutritionist! Aside from all of that, I’m an energetic free spirit that is obsessed with glitter and all things magic!
I believe that everyone and everything is connected, and that we can attract anything we desire with the power of our thoughts...law of attraction! I also stand by the ten principles of Burning Man which I believe should be followed by everyone in this world. A few of these principles include leave no trace, gifting, and radical self-expression.
How long have you been modeling?
I have been modeling professionally for about 4 years.
What's your favorite part?
Being able to express myself in many different forms through an image. Every image tells a story.
How was home life for you growing up?
It was great! I have always wanted to be famous, but I am so glad that I have not yet reached that point as I was blessed to experience a real childhood. I have been through a lot in my life, but I regret nothing as they were all lessons learned. I was also a pretty rebellious teenager, but I’ll save those stories for my E! True Hollywood Story segment in the future hehe.
Were you always supported in your endeavors?
Kind of, sort of. My mom definitely was supportive of me being a dancer, I mean she did put me in my first ballet shoes at 2 years old! And she would take photos for me to submit to agencies and take me to auditions every now and then, but she always pushed me to just stay focused on school and finish it before really pursuing anything full time. I’m not upset about it, I don’t feel like I’ve missed out on anything. Things have moved so fast for me since college, and I am proud to say I completed my education.
Whats a typical day for you?
There is no typical day for me, everyday I am either rehearsing for something or doing something different from yesterday...whether it’s filming a movie, modeling for a photoshoot, performing a festival...or sometimes hanging out at home and doing some yoga with hot tea.
I’m not really into favorites because everything is unique and special in its own way, but one modeling experience I won’t ever forget is one of my first fashion shows which has led to many more. It was the CocktailsXCouture Fashion Show at The Ritz in Tampa, and it was organized so well I felt like I was doing the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. There was so much energy and as soon as I was off the runway, I craved to go back onto it.
What is the biggest challenge you faced in your career?
Moving across the country and having to rebuild connections.
What has been your biggest achievement?
Starring as the lead role in a feature film which comes out November 19th. Look out for “Scathing” at an outlet near you!
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I see myself as a celebrity that inspires millions to follow their hearts and dreams, and spreading love and positivity across the world. In five years I also hope to own a modeling school/agency for foster children, and a holistic medicinal center for those with mental illnesses.
If you could shoot with your favorite celebrity who would it be. And what kind of concept? Paris Hilton, that girl rocks everyone of her shoots and she has grown up to be such a powerful business woman! The concept would be bold and colorful 90’s style with a high fashion twist.
Who is your favorite designer?
If Heatherette was still around, that would be my first choice. But right now it’s a tie between Betsey Johnson and Moschino.
Any other additional hobbies?
Painting, hula hooping, fire eating, contortion, crafting, yoga, and reading.
What's your favorite quote?
“Teach me the rules and I’ll teach you how to break them.” This was my senior quote in high school.
Do you have any shows or events coming up? I was recently casted as a performer for the Sin City Comedy and Burlesque Show at Planet Hollywood, and my debut performance will be November 12th with headliner Dustin Diamond.
Anyone you want to collaborate with in the future?
I would love to collaborate with Betsey Johnson for her clothing line!
Never ever give up! Look yourself in the mirror, tell yourself you are beautiful, amazing, and talented! You have a gift inside of you, find that gift and don’t be afraid to share it with the world. Stay positive even when you are down..what you send out to the universe is what you receive back.
