Felix magazine catches up with Grey’s Anatomy actress Camilla Luddington to discuss her career, empowered women in the entertainment industry, and her life sans scrubs. She also made an exclusive photoshoot for the magazine and the photographs look amazing.
Felix: As you probably know, Felix Magazine benefits the Aparecio Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to female education and empowerment, especially in young girls. As a successful woman yourself, why do you believe it is important to begin emphasizing female successes at a young age and encouraging the next generation?
Camilla Luddington: It is not a ‘man’s world,’ but with issues like unequal pay still being relevant, it can certainly feel that way. By empowering the next generation and educating them at such a young age, we are giving women of the future the tools to continue to pave the way. It is imperative that our voices are always heard and the conversation for equality is never silenced.
Felix: Do you work with any other charitable organizations?
CL: I recently rescued a dog this summer, so I’m looking to find an organization that helps with animal abuse and rescue. The conversation is actually happening right now about which [charity], as there are so many great organizations to be a part of, but I’ll be tweeting more about that soon.
Felix: Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes has become known for creating strong and complex female characters onscreen. Do you think this growing trend in the media will encourage young girls to take ownership of their lives and careers?
CL: I think women like Shonda herself are hugely influential. They are showing what powerhouses women can be in any industry. I think it’s inspiring, encouraging and long overdue.
