We’re celebrating female creatives based in Los Angeles who are inspiring to us at RABÔT.
Meet Allie Marie Evans @alliemarieevans and Taylor Kalatschan @tay_ter_tots, shot by @zhenyaminaeva and produced by @otmcreatives
Allie - Allie Marie Evans is an American-Canadian actress. She made her film debut with the leading role in the feature adaption of James Patterson's best-selling series Maximum Ride directed by Jay Martin. Allie was most recently seen in the highly successful HBO series Euphoria as "Natalie". Allie can also be seen starring in Trevor Stevens' Rock Steady Row which won the Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize at Slamdance Film Festival (2018). Additionally, Allie recently wrapped filming the limited series Gaslit (2021)
Taylor - Taylor grew up in Newport Beach, California. She moved to Austin, Texas to get a degree in Communications from the University of Texas. She stayed in Austin and got her start in the music industry working for a couple alternative radio stations in marketing and promotions. Her love for live events brought her back to Southern California, where she started on the venue marketing team at Live Nation. She started a small embroidery business to raise money for multiple causes while quarantined in 2020. Now, she is back at Live Nation doing venue marketing and social media for venues all over LA including The Wiltern, The Palladium & The Belasco.
Q: What uplifts and inspires you about each other?
Allie - "I have known Taylor since we were 13 years old and since day one her ability to make everyone feel welcome and loved has endlessly inspired me. She lights up every room she walks in to and has the ability to bring calm and joy to everyone. She has an open heart and watching her navigate the world makes me want to be a better person. The world would be a better place if everyone operated with the grace and and overflowing love that Taylor lives her life by."
Taylor - "It’s hard to narrow down what inspires me about Allie, but I would say the thing that inspires me the most is the fierceness in which she does everything. Whether it be her career path, her love for her friends and family, or even her over the top party planning - she puts all she has into everything. Seeing her do that from a young age has always inspired me to make bolder choices and have more faith in myself. Her confidence is contagious! She’s a rockstar."
Q: How have you been uplifted this past year by each other?
Allie - "Over the past year Taylor has been my safe harbor. Whenever I’m overwhelmed or feel like I’m sinking she is always there to pull me up. I can always count on her to support me, lift me up, and most importantly she listens with no judgment. With her I always feel safe to speak my truth and know that there will be someone holding my hand who has the strength to be both honest and supportive."
Taylor - "Allie has always been one of my biggest champions in life. I know I can rely on her to not only have my back, but push me to be my best self. Working in the live events industry over the past year was rough. With over a year of no events, I was furloughed, and at the time, there was no light at the end of the tunnel. I was tempted to give up on working in the entertainment industry because it felt like it was never going to end. However, whenever I talked to Allie she was always throwing out different career paths I could take in the entertainment industry, or ideas for the next move I could make. I don’t even think she realized it at the time, but her faith in my career was extremely uplifting at a time when I needed it. Now, I’m back and in a better role than I was in before!"
