Actress Jy Prishkulnik Graduated from UCLA in 2021

The Just Beyond star completed her graduation from UCLA in September 2021. She posted a picture from the last class before graduation on Instagram.

The next day, she received an audition request for a live-action musical feature film called Monster High. Months later, she was welcomed on set by a brilliant director Todd Holland and fellow Bruin.

The actress’s time at UCLA was non-traditional. She was a transfer student, a commuter and spent a cumulative of about five and half months on campus before the pandemic sent them all to Zoom.

Prishkulnik completed her entire senior year living in a basement suite in Canada. Despite this, she experienced exponential growth as a Bruin.

Furthermore, she had a full class load and had the immense fortune of auditioning for and booking work. She was amazed at how her academic pursuits frequently complimented her acting career.

The actress also gave an instance – after analyzing and writing about the use of female power as displayed by the infamous witches of Shakespeare’s Scottish play, she got to play a mischievous young witch called Luna in the Just Beyond series.

“There is not enough room here to express all of my praise for and admiration of the remarkable and engaged professors who nurtured interests that forged my path forward (especially my senior honors thesis advisor Professor @joseph.bristow).” she said.

She was a lover of education and the synthesis of storytelling, academics, and the arts. Her experience at UCLA inspired this nebulous aspect of herself.

Jy Prishkulnik Watched Snow White Movie for over 20 Times

When she was growing up, she didn’t really enjoy Snow White movies because her mother always told her she was a “weak princess.”

She didn’t realize until she was doing research for her thesis it was the first color feature line animated film ever in history.

The actress had so much fun analyzing the movie and watched it over 20 times while doing her thesis at UCLA.

She noticed so many details, and it truly made her fall in love with animation because every tiny detail had to be accounted for because it was all drawn by hand.

That made her realize everything was done for a reason in the animated movie. She learned so much from the movie, like fashion in the 1930s, amongst other things.
