Call in to speak with the host
Deja was practically born to be a performer. The daughter of Norman Howell, a well-established stunt man/coordinator/director and stunt double for Kevin Costner, Deja traveled from location to location growing up, so it’s no wonder that she thinks of a movie set as “home.” As a little girl, Deja fell in love with the idea of performing. It would be the film “Dances with Wolves” where Deja would get her first taste of performing. She continued to participate in the ‘family business’ throughout her adolescence, but soon realized that stunts were not enough, as the life of an actress brought conflicted emotions. Having grown up on movie sets, she understands the life of an actor can be isolating, unfulfilling and unpredictable at times. With a longing to touch people’s lives through performing, it makes sense that Deja has branched out into other areas of creativity, such as music.
It's good to talk.
