Natalie Loren Kwatinetz can next be seen in the feature film, The Tribes of Palos Verdes, which focuses on the lives of two teenagers who move to Palos Verdes, an affluent suburb of Los Angeles.

Their mother (Jennifer Garner) teeters on the brink of a nervous breakdown, while their father becomes a surgeon to the stars. One of the teenagers, Medina, turns to surfing to escape her troubled home life. Loren plays Gina, a member of the tennis club that their mother dislikes.

Loren’s additional credits include Entourage, Violence and 30 Seconds to Mars’ short film Up In The Air.

Loren was born in Liverpool, England, to an English mother and Mauritian father, before moving to London. Loren was captivated by American films from a very early age, which ultimately inspired her to pursue acting, starting with school plays. In London, her striking looks soon began landing her modeling opportunities. Loren was discovered by Britain’s prolific fashion photographer Bob Carlos Clarke, who photographed her on numerous occasions. She went on to become a featured muse in his exhibition and book titled Living Dolls.

Here is what Natalie tells Chilled about her upcoming film and her fondness for Italian food and a bottle of red.

Tell us a bit about the projects you are working on.

I’m in a film called The Tribes of Palos Verdes with Jennifer Garner. It’s about Jennifer’s character, Sandy, and the lives of her teenagers when the family moves to Palos Verdes. While there, she meets my character, Gina, who likes to play tennis and has a perfect life, which is something Sandy doesn’t find very attractive!
