Actress Dylan Gelula had her first starring role in a feature film, First Girl I Loved. “I am in no position to be picky and I got picked to do the thing I would have paid somebody to let me be part of,” said Gulela, when we met up to chat.

In “First Girl I Loved”, written and directed by Kerem Sanga, she plays Anne, a 17-year-old who falls for the popular softball player Sasha (Brianna Hildebrand) while facing the confusion and anger of a male friend who has a crush on her.

“She’s a perfect character to play because there are so many things I have in common with her, and there are so many things to draw on – but there were so many differences that were challenging,” says Gulela. “She’s cool and weird and difficult and nerdy and wonderful.”
