“I did everything that I said I would love to do. I’ve released an album, I have the single out, I’m a verified music user on Spotify, I’ve been in a television show — a really well-known television show….”
It’s been a life-changing month for Jordan Kristine Seamon, but the actor, singer and breakout star of Luca Guadagnino’s We Are Who We Are always knew she was destined for greatness. “I was like six or seven when I told my parents I wanted to be an entertainer,” she tells us from her home in Atlanta. “All the other kids were talking about being ballerinas and astronauts and I was like, ‘Well, I can do all of that and more. I’m an actor.’”
At the beginning of the month, the 17-year-old dropped her debut album under punchy pseudonym JK. Aptly titled Identity Crisis, it feels like a deep personal project filled with ruminations on heartbreak, lust and letting go. We Are Who We Are dropped on HBO just two weeks later, with Seamon’s portrayal of Caitlin cementing her status as one of the most exciting new actors of her generation.
In our Autumn issue, Seamon reflects on why she was drawn to the nuances of her character, how she prepared for the role, working with co-stars Jack Dylan Grazer and Kid Cudi and the special birthday she experienced on set.
