Lydia Fiore’s laugh is from the heart, very Buffalo-meets-Manhattan, just like her quick wit.
The Lackawanna native always wanted to be an actress, but her day-job success delayed her dream for a few decades. After rising to a senior vice president position at a women’s fashion company in New York and acting only on the weekends, she left corporate life behind two years ago and is now acting full time.
“I fully immersed myself in my art as an actor with classes, auditions, roles … This was my dream and now I’m living it,” she said.
In a phone interview from her home in New Jersey, Fiore said she was “thrilled” about the hometown screening of her short film “Swiped Right,” a romantic comedy which she executive produced and stars in.
The screening is set for 8 p.m. Sept. 28 at the Buffalo Niagara International Film Festival at the Four Seasons Theaters in Niagara Falls.
