|Biography: Susan Rounkles, or Sue Ro for short, was born and raised just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. Despite idolizing Marilyn Monroe and entertaining thoughts of "Someday", Susan's struggle with teenage depression kept her from most of her ambitions. It wasn't until she moved to Boston that she finally started to overcome her fears and develop an outgoing and positive outlook on life.
Susan's reasons for acting are simple - She loves to share her gift and seeks to help other struggling artists discover that they can indeed realize their dreams. "This is the reason why I am in this business - I love it with the greatest passion, it is a part of who I am and it is one of the greatest ways to be able to touch hearts and enrich lives. I want everyone who has a desire to share their talent to be able to do so."
Susan has two beautiful children that she considers her light at the end of every day. Her family, her home and her beliefs keep her going when times get tough. In her spare time, between films, commercials, infomercials, voiceovers, vocal events and acting classes, Susan likes to garden on her humble half acre lot that she vows will one day turn from a piece of barren hell into a lot of lush green heaven. She also loves interior design, vintage shopping and writing.
On the writing front, Susan has completed three feature length screenplays. Her favorite is currently in pre-production and she hopes to have it in the can by May 2008. If all goes according to plan, this will be merely the first of many cinematic journeys in which she offers up to others the healing power of film that has influenced her own life so much.
The script focuses on a girl overcoming her fear to live her life, a topic with which Susan has had first hand experience. She says 'The overall message is that, FEAR is the root of all lies and it keeps us from true happiness... love of self and love of life."
Her own life motto - "Live life, love life and enjoy the journey", demonstrates just how clearly Susan has taken her script's message to heart. Well along the path of her own journey, Susan loves where her passion is taking her and is having a ball living out her dreams.
