It’s safe to say that Kam Horne has successfully participated in almost every aspect of the entertainment business. She has worked in careers ranging from actress to TV producer to celebrity stylist. With the accomplishment of her career goals, she also makes time for her family. Recently Horne has been co-producing a feature length film called She Must Be Loved, and is currently working on a TV pilot called Guy Theory. After seeing some of her work, I was interested in hearing about her upcoming projects. Kam Horne agreed to give Cliché the scoop on the film.
Cliché: I have read that you have been very busy lately with being an actress, host, TV personality, TV producer, celebrity stylist, and occasionally working on your blog. Is there any one of those that you are most passionate about?
Kam Horne: I’m extremely passionate about all aspects of the industry that I work in. The entertainment industry is so vast, and I get to tap into my creative side on a daily basis… I wouldn’t want to do anything else. I get to wear so many different hats and they are all fun and challenging in so many exciting ways.
Having achieved so many career goals throughout your life, what was your biggest motivation?
My biggest motivation is definitely my family. They make me want to be the best at everything I do. I love seeing them happy and proud of me.
Aside from all the responsibilities you have, do you ever have time for yourself? What are some hobbies that you enjoy doing when you are not working?
One thing I always make time for is me. If I’m happy and at peace, then so is my family, and “me-time” definitely makes me happy. So “girl’s night out,” mani-pedis, spa dates, etc. are a must! I still like to paint, read a good book, or write when I get a chance. Nowadays, I do these things with my kids because they enjoy the same hobbies, so we have a lot of fun together.
Does having such a demanding and elaborate career take a lot of time out from your family life?
The beautiful thing about being “self-employed” is that I have a pretty flexible schedule, which is another career perk. No matter how full my days get with work, I can fit time in between my crazy schedule to spend with my husband and my kids. We always try to eat dinner together and just catch up on each other’s day. My family is a top priority, and I make sure they know that every day. I’ve always felt that no matter how busy we get, we can always make time for our top priorities.
I also read that you are currently working on a film; can you tell us a little about it?
I’m actually co-producing a feature length film that my husband, Ricky Horne Jr., wrote and will be directing. It’s a teen/fantasy romance titled She Must Be Loved about an 18-year-old girl who gets killed and brought back to life Sleeping Beauty style. It’s an amazing script, and I’m excited that we’ll be working on our first project together. We’re currently in pre-production, but will be posting our website with updates on the film soon.
You are also working on a new pilot called Guy Theory. Can you give us the gist on that as well?
I’m very excited about Guy Theory too! It’s a TV show project, and I play the role of Saniya who is married to the lead. We have a child together and I juggle a demanding career in the fashion world with wife and motherhood. The character is definitely relatable to me and I enjoy playing her. The writer/director, Inga Eiland, is a young black woman who is super talented and a joy to work with. It’s currently in pre-production, so I can’t give any other details as of yet. I really think people are going to love the show. It’s fresh, unique, and has a great cast!
