s a n r e P Sophia AN INTERVIEW BY HEATHER ARNOLD, TRAVELHOST ALBUQUERQUE

NBC’s newest hit drama series, The Brave, brings to life the dark and complex world of America’s elite undercover military heroes. Defense Intelligence Agency Deputy Director Patricia Campbell (Anne Heche) and her team of analysts wield the world’s most advanced surveillance technology from their headquarters in D.C., while Adam Dalton (Mike Vogel) and his heroic Special Ops squad save the lives of innocent people and execute missions in some of the most dangerous places on earth. The Brave is filmed here in New Mexico and I was lucky enough to sit down with Sophia Pernas (who plays Hannah Archer) to find out more about her character and how she spends her free time here in New Mexico.

HA: The Brave is a fast-paced, heart-pumping drama; what initially drew you to the script? SOPHIA: The character, Hannah. She is very dynamic with a lot of gumption and resourcefulness. As a former operator (in the field), and now an analyst for the Defense Intelligence Agency, she has to balance a somewhat blurred line between the two, and she doesn’t always know where or how to draw that line. The soldiers are the eyes and ears of the field and Hannah’s biggest challenge is stepping away from that gut-instinct, fast-paced action; and instead being the person behind the computer screen in the defense room making calm, calculated decisions. Hannah is also very complex, as she has this overwhelming insecurity that she struggles with in regards to her past and her cover being blown. HA: She is definitely a complex character. In what ways do you identify with Hannah? 12|SPRING 2018

SOPHIA: The main thing we have in common is the ability to compartmentalize. I am very good at not letting my personal life affect my work. Both Hannah and I have learned to put those thoughts or emotions into a drawer and get back to it later. I think that is how (my character), Hannah is able to do her job; after the trauma she went through, she’s able to control it – put it out of her mind and concentrate on the job at hand. HA: In what way do you and your character differ? SOPHIA: Where we have a note of discord is her patience. (Laughingly) I don’t have any patience, but Hannah has to have a lot of it to do what she does! We are so particular with the character development on The Brave because we are playing real-life heroes that don’t seek this kind of limelight and attention – so to accomplish that we have to fill their shoes as honestly and www.travelhost.com


INTERVIEW / SOPHIA PERNAS - THE BRAVE

accurately as possible. These heroes have had to garner unbelievable amounts of patience and ability to handle the sacrifices they go through for their country and the people they love. HA: Completely agree. The Brave really highlights the tactics and heroism of each week’s new mission. How did you train for that?

corner. Albuquerque is much more spread out, but that is actually the draw. The topography is unlike anything I am used to; it’s the desert and it’s vast. You really get a sense of that vastness and become very centered with yourself here, a peacefulness I’ve never really known before. HA: Do you have any favorite places here in New Mexico?

SOPHIA: We dedicate time to making sure everything we say and do is legitimate and technical real-life lingo. We really owe it to former Navy SEAL, Mikal Vega. He’s our specialist and guarantees we stay true to the characters and scenarios we play. It is really amazing – getting a sense of stepping into those shoes, even for a second. Will we ever be as good as these real-life heroes? Looking like it, for even a second, is a real honor to portray.

SOPHIA: I have fallen in love with Santa Fe for sure. Ann has a house up there so we all visit often. I recently went to Ojo Caliente (Mineral Springs Resort & Spa) with Mike Vogal (who plays Adam Dalton) and Hadi Tabbal (who plays Amir AlRaisani), and we had a blast! Some of my regular restaurants that I love in Albuquerque are Farm & Table and Vernon’s Speakeasy.

HA: It is amazing and INTENSE! How do you unwind after these serious shoots?

Thank you, Sophia for taking the time to sit down with TravelHost NM. We look forward to seeing more of Sophia and her character Hannah each week on NBC’s The Brave!

SOPHIA: We are really lucky because we feel like one huge family – the cast and crew both! That’s not something a lot of shows can say. I have a saying, ‘You get to pick what you do, but you don’t get to pick who you work with.’ With the cast and crew of The Brave, we are so fortunate, it’s like a perfect marriage. We work together all day and hang out with each other afterwards. That’s really how we decompress. HA: Who would you say is the biggest jokester in the cast? SOPHIA: (Laughs) You’re talking to her! I rarely take anything seriously – obviously when on set, my character is all business – but off set everyone is laughing. Me and Ann Heche – who is HILARIOUS – we just can’t keep a straight face together! That’s the best way we all shake the seriousness of the show off – with a good joke. HA: How have you enjoyed filming in Albuquerque thus far? SOPHIA: I have to say, it’s a pleasant surprise. I am used to filming in New York and L.A., where there is always so much to do on every street www.travelhost.com

the impact of film FEATURE / FILMED IN NEW MEXICO

BY HEATHER ARNOLD, TRAVELHOST ALBUQUERQUE

Film and television production and post-production have had a multi-billion dollar impact in the state, leading to creation of over 350 vendor and service businesses and more than 25,000 jobs for New Mexico residents. The Film Business Alliance of New Mexico (FBANM) was founded in 2016 to give a voice to the individuals and businesses whose livelihoods are dependent on the industry in New Mexico. I had a chance to meet with Joyce Smith, Executive Director for the FBANM, and Matt Rauchberg, Senior Vice President for Business Development at Albuquerque Studios to learn more about the impact the film and television industry makes and what we can all do to support continued funding by the State Legislature.

HA: Tell us more about the Film Business Alliance of New Mexico. MATT: We are an organization of small businesses and individuals whose success and livelihoods are impacted by the film industry here in New Mexico. We give these individuals and businesses a voice to communicate clearly to the public, the legislature, the executive branch, and the press that these benefits are taking place and how the film and television industry is affecting us all here in the state. HA: New Mexico has been offering production companies

incentives related to film and television production since 2002. The purpose of the film production tax incentive is to develop and sustain New Mexico’s infrastructure, pool of trained professionals, and businesses to support the state’s film and television industry. What role does the State Legislature play in our film economy? JOYCE: The Legislature is our lifeline to our small businesses. It is vital they understand how critical this industry is to our economy right now. Our businesses have grown, and continue to grow because of Film/Television, and businesses have been created solely to accommodate the industry’s many needs. We help relay this message to the Legislature regarding how much of an impact the industry brings to the livelihood of our residents. Through thoughtful, fiscally responsible legislation, the industry is now stronger than ever. HA: What types of businesses are seeing the most traction in the film/TV industry? MATT: There are mainly two different categories of businesses: ones created for the film industry and ones that have grown to include film clientele. There have been over 300 businesses created

for, and that rely solely on, the industry – such as catering, postproduction, and concierge. Then there are the businesses who grew or expanded personnel for the industry – like lumber yards who now have a staff person entirely dedicated to film industry clients, or hotels that hire more people because they are filling more rooms and have higher occupancy. Film Tourism has also grown/been impacted by the film industry. For example, even five years after the last episode of Breaking Bad, visitors are still coming to New Mexico to take tours based on the television show – so much so, that the Breaking Bad RV tour just bought a second RV this year. These businesses are growing! HA: What can visitors and residents do to help champion this message and this industry? JOYCE: Definitely join our organization and continue to service the film industry. The happier the industry is, the more they will come back and make more films. By joining the Film Business Alliance of New Mexico, you are helping to show how many people in multiple sectors across the state it actually takes to service the film industry.

EL SANTUARIO de CHIMAYO HOLY WEEK PILGRIMAGE By Candice Thomas, Contributor

Hundreds of thousands of people visit the Catholic church Santuario De Chimayo every year. The most visitors come during Holy Week when over 30,000 people will make pilgrimage from all over the world to this holy site. There are rumors that the area where the church is located was known for healing even by Native Americans before the church was constructed. According to many stories I read about the church’s origin, in the early 1800’s a member of the Catholic brotherhood saw a light emanating from the ground. When he explored the source of the light he found a crucifix half buried in the dirt. The brotherhood tried moving the cross from the location twice to different places but every time they moved it, it would vanish from the new location and mysteriously show up back in its original location. So after getting blessings from a priest, a chapel was built right at the location of where the crucifix and healing sand were found. Since then there have been many stories of people being healed by El Posito, the sacred pit of sand, located in the chapel. Some of those stories are published on the Santuario De Chimayo’s website, and include people being healed from cancer, infertility, and more. Located an hour and a half north of Albuquerque, the Santuario De Chimayo is made up of a few buildings and statues. One of the most memorable experiences I had was walking through the prayer room

34|SPRING 2018

to reach the healing sand. Rows of crutches line the walls, given from those who claim to have had miraculous healing. There were several people sitting in silent prayer in the chapel and more praying at El Posito, putting their hands in the dirt or scooping it up and taking it with them (you can buy a small container from the gift shop to collect your own healing dirt). In addition to visiting the actual chapel and El Posito, it’s worthwhile to spend time visiting the Madonna Gardens which feature beautiful statues of the Virgin Mary, Three Cultures, and more. There’s also an area filled with thousands of pictures of people from all walks of life who are being prayed for by the church and by the thousands of visitors who see the photos and choose to pray for them. In that space I felt the energy of faith and hope so strong that I wept. This feeling stayed with me the entire time I toured around the site. Regardless of your faith, make time to visit the Santuario De Chimayo. There is something magical about being in the energy of a place where many people gather in faith and hope.

El Santuario de Chimayo has been a place of worship since before its construction in 1813. For generations, American Indians, Hispanics, and other people of faith have traveled to the site to ask for healing, offer prayers and give thanks. El Santuario is one of the most important Catholic pilgrimage centers in the US and a glorious example of Spanish Colonial architecture in New Mexico. El Santuario de Chimayo attracts over 300,000 pilgrims from all over the Southwest and beyond each year. Tens of thousands of pilgrims walk to El Santuario from Santa Fe and other starting points during Holy Week. 15 Santuario Drive, Chimayo, NM 87522 W: holychimayo.us/Santuario P: (505) 351-9961 Hours: 9AM to 5PM (Oct.-Apr) 9AM to 6PM (May-Sep.)

e F a t n Sa Santa Fe is New Mexico’s fourth largest city and also its oldest, founded by Spanish colonists in 1610. Today, it serves as the state’s capital as well as an artists’ community with many local galleries, dealers and museums juxtaposed beautifully next to historic and religious sites. For a long weekend in Santa Fe, make sure to visit the galleries and the churches that add to this city’s unique flare. Also, no trip here is complete without a delicious – and likely enormous – plate of traditional New Mexican food. Here are some suggestions for what to see and do on a few days’ getaway to this southwestern gem.

Simple Self Care for Colds & Flu By Lori Eanes D.O, Contributor Whether you are traveling or remaining close to home, you could be exposed to the dreaded flu. Here’s the good news! The incidence of flu often declines at the start of spring, so there’s promising days ahead. However, if you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, here are a few simple steps that you can take to speed up your recovery: 1. Prevention is your first line of defense. Because viruses first penetrate your nose and throat, a daily nasal rinse can prevent the cold from happening. Drinking warm liquids throughout the day protects the throat. Keep your stress level down, get moderate exercise and adequate rest. 2. 1-2 teaspoons of honey with a squeeze of lemon is helpful for a sore throat or dry cough.

Lemon helps to neutralize the virus while honey heals the mucus membranes in the throat. 3. Steam acts as a natural decongestant. Whether it’s a hot shower or a hot bowl of water and a towel draped over your head, your chest and nasal passages will benefit. 4. Sip on broth or soup with lots of garlic and onion. Garlic is a natural anti-viral; onion helps improve lung function and fresh vegetables provide immune boosting nutrients. We’ve forgotten there’s a natural pharmacy inside of our kitchen. Our grandmothers knew this long before later studies by medical scientists. Your symptoms should resolve in 7-10 days and you’ll be back on enchanting adventures, healthy and well.
