Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome, if you’re new! And hello again, if you’re not. If you have burning questions, start here, and if there’s still more you want to know, my ask is always open.
1. Why is Claire in your URL, and why did you spell it with an I?
Claire is my middle name, and Clare is the character I played on Degrassi. Yes, it was a coincidence.
2. What’s your full name?
Aislinn Claire Tennant Paul
3. When did you start acting?
I did my first commercial when I was 7 months old, with my mum. Then my parents decided that I should have a bit of a childhood and not act until I was old enough to decide if I wanted to. I continued to go with my parents to their auditions, until one day a casting director saw me and asked my parents if I could be in a commercial. I was around 4 years old and I haven’t stopped since.
4. Do you answer all of your messages?
I don’t I’m afraid. I truly wish I could, but you guys are just far too kind and leave me way more messages than I can possibly respond to. But I try to answer the fun ones, or the important ones, and sometimes I make it a private reply. Just know that I appreciate every message.
5. How do I get into acting?
Well, first I ask that you really study the reasons why you want to be in this business, and if they all stem from a pure love of the art, then please continue. But not before I extend my sincerest condolences because it’s not going to be easy. I’d say start by getting an agent, and maybe taking some classes if you’re pretty green to the business. Then you wait. There’s a lot of waiting.
6. What social media do you have?
This tumblog, of course.
