Rysa said of her interesting fact , “I started my career in this industry at the age of 9 years old. I grew and matured a lot earlier than most being thrown into such a competitive field having endured a great deal of negatively and positive publicity, as well as rejection. Being on a film set everyday over a period of a month and working along side some very talented actors, has taught me a great deal of very valuable lessons. Firstly, to conduct myself in a professional manner, to make sure I am completely prepared and focused on the task I’m doing and do my best at all times. As well this, I have learnt how to manage and keep a good relationship with the whole cast and crew and apply discretion in the interactions during and after filming.”
