In this episode, I interview actress and animal activist, Daniah De Villiers. Daniah plays Mia in the upcoming film, Mia And The White Lion. To make the film as authentic as possible, the director wanted Daniah to develop a real relationship with a REAL white lion over the span of three years for filming. Listen to hear what the experience was like working with Thor, also known as “Charlie” in the movie.

Mia And The White Lion hits theaters FRIDAY, APRIL 12 in the US.
