Exclusive Q&A with Shirley A. Rumierk AB '99 (Actor, RiseCollateral Beauty)

By Nicole Torres AB '11

Born in New York, Shirley Rumierk AB '99 is an actress known for RiseCollateral Beauty, and 11:55. You can watch her most recent work on the NBC show Rise, in which she stars as single mom Vanessa Suarez.

Q. What inspired you to pursue an acting career? Tell us about your acting journey.

A. Acting started out as a hobby for me. Starting when I was 10 years old and all throughout high school, I was involved in a children’s theater program called The 52ndStreet Project in Hell’s Kitchen, New York. This was before Hell’s Kitchen became known as Clinton and there weren’t many extracurricular opportunities available. It became my second home. The after-school program’s mission wasn’t (and still isn’t) about cranking out future actors. It was through exposure to different art forms and working side by side with theater professionals that The 52ndStreet Project not only became my outlet for artistic expression; it was where I improved my writing skills and learned thatmy words really matter.

When I arrived at Harvard, I was certain that I was going to be an economics major. As a first-generation Latina from a low-income home, it was what I assumed was a logical major if I wanted to change my family’s financial situation in the future. However, after a moment of crisis when it was clear that economics was not my calling, my roommate, Heather Hanson AB '99, helped me switch my major to something I was clearly enjoying, Hispanic Studies. Over the summer between my junior and senior years at Harvard, I went on a trip to Cuba to study Cuban and Caribbean literature, history and architecture, sponsored by the University of Buffalo. I was surrounded by a diverse group of students, all studying what they were truly passionate about and not what they thought they “should” be majoring in. It was then that I started to seriously consider acting as an actual career path. By senior year, I’d become adept at analyzing literary characters and I had enough of that. I developed a deep urge to take the analysis further and bring these characters to life! I knew pursuing an acting career would be a big and daring decision, especially as a Harvard grad. However, I asked myself a very important question: When I am 75 years old, will I regret not being an actor leading a creative life or at the very least try? The answer was clear, and I took a risk. At that moment, my hobby became my passion.

Q. Some people say that in addition to skill and talent, succeeding in acting requires luck, which can be discouraging for many aspiring actors. What are your thoughts on that? 

A.There is some luck involved, sure; however, I would add determination and flexibility to that secret sauce. This career is not for the faint of heart. It’s important to set clear goals and doggedly pursue your passion. However, it’s important to be flexible as to how you imagine those goals manifesting. Maybe you create your own work as opposed to getting that coveted audition for the lead in X project. Maybe you join forces with a non-profit and see how the power of the theater can transform those that are under-resourced. This too is succeeding in acting.

Q. You have a very impressive resume! What can you tell us about your most recent role in NBC’s new series Rise?

A. I absolutely love my character Vanessa Suarez on Rise. In large part the diverse team of writers on Rise gave me a gem of a character to play with. She is an unapologetic, blue-collar, hard-working young single parent who truly loves her daughter and is doing the best she can with the limited resources she has at her disposal. She is also subject to the stigma and judgement of being a single mom. At times, Vanessa makes decisions with her heart instead of her head. She is not perfect. She is only human. That humanity is what I want audiences to connect with. It’s what steers people away from judgement and more towards empathy. I was raised by a single mom so this character hits very close to home. I want to do it justice as an homage to my own fierce mother.

Alumni Profile: Mandel Ilagan AB '99 (VP, Unscripted Live-Action Development at Nickelodeon)

By Adrian Horton AB '17

In retrospect, it’s almost as if Mandel Ilagan’s career in unscripted content was, well, scripted. When other kids at his school in Cooper City, Florida, sought the playground at recess, Mandel would lead classmates in an impromptu version of The Price is Right. When friends came over, they’d spend hours playing board games or watching game shows. And by the time he arrived at Harvard in the fall of 1995, after having studied humor and screenwriting at a Harvard Summer School course the summer before, Ilagan knew that he wanted to work in television.

“That being said, we know that there's no real sort of TV division at Harvard,” he recounts one afternoon in March. He took the lack of plotting as an opportunity for growth; to give himself “as broad an education as possible,” he opted to concentrate in economics.

But it didn’t take long for the TV itch to surface. While strolling through an activities fair at the beginning of his freshman year, he was drawn in by the table for Harvard Television. The club was launching a game show, and Ilagan immediately signed up to help produce it.

As has happened many times in his career since then, preparing for that first opportunity offered the chance to take on more. His dedication to the production of the show—preparing host auditions for their tests, explaining the mechanics of the game—caught attention, and soon he was asked to host the show himself. Thus began his four-year gig of leading “Survey Says,” an homage to Family Feud that pitted students from different houses against each other. Combined with his role as Vice President of Harvard Television, playing piano in various campus musicals, and writing and “attempting to act in” a sketch comedy show called The Common Room, Ilagan’s broad education skewed heavily into entertainment.

A summer internship before his senior year with the Academy of Television’s comedy division cemented his decision to move to Los Angeles following graduation. As an intern on the set of Tim Allen’s sitcom Home Improvement, Ilagan received a crash-course in both production and the many networking avenues in the industry. "That was a great experience to see how a full-on television production worked and to see many different aspects. But what was even more valuable were the connections I made both through that internship and other people I had met while out in the area."

Those connections paid off soon after he moved to LA in the summer of 1999. While working as a page at CBS—and gleaning insight from onset productions of The Price is Right, Hollywood Squares, and The Young and the Restless, among others—Ilagan got a call from one of the producers he had stayed in touch with following his first internship at the Academy of Television. The producer was working on a response to Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?, which had just become an overnight success. The development schedule was tight; could Mandel take time off his page job and help out?

Ilagan agreed “and before I knew it, I was reporting to the Dick Clark production offices.” Though officially hired as a production assistant, the scale of the task ahead required all hands on deck. "We basically had about a month to come up with the format of the game and refine it and show it to the Fox executives to order it as a series,” he remembers. Crucially, Ilagan was “very lucky” that he was encouraged not to let his production assistant duties "prevent you from (contributing) if you have ideas for how the game works or ideas for questions, we're in such a crunch time that all ideas are on the table." Drawing on his quiz show background, Ilagan submitted questions to the head writers; if the show got picked up, he was told, he would not be headed back to CBS as a page. Greed premiered that fall on Fox and ran for nine months, during which time Ilagan rose from researcher, to researcher-writer, to getting questions on the air.

On a game show, as in life, success comes through a combination of preparation, opportunity, and good fortune. Following the success of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?, game show productions were in high demand—a cultural moment that Ilagan, inadvertently or not, had been readying for years in advance. “I was very lucky,” he says. “It was definitely a right place, right time situation, but also it was taking advantage and really proving myself. Because it can be the right place, right time, but you still have to make sure you've got the skills and talent to prove your worth."

His work on Greed carried forward; despite the show’s cancellation in 2000, his experience led to an offer to develop game show pilots for Fremantle Media, the company behind such hits as American Idol, Family Feud, and Ilagan’s beloved The Price is Right. In another gift of timing, leadership turned over early in Ilagan’s time with the company, and a mentor tapped for an executive position took extra notice of his work. He created a position for Ilagan on the development team, initiating a “great” five-year run in unscripted development.

With Fremantle, Ilagan had a hand in some of the most treasured installments in the game show genre. He brought back Press Your Luck, one of his “favorite shows of all time,” on the Game Show Network. And he didn’t hesitate when offered the chance to submit game ideas to The Price is Right. He took the offer, stewed in LA traffic, and delivered an idea for Half Off the next morning. Weeks later, he received a call; Bob Barker loved the idea. Half Off premiered in 2004 and still runs in the show’s cycle today. It’s surreal, Ilagan says, to be a “part of a show that I grew up watching. I'm part of the legacy of it.”

Staying true to his belief in the power of professional relationships, Ilagan left Fremantle in 2005 to follow one of his original mentors—the producer who introduced him to Greed—to help start up the Fox Reality Channel. Further connections led to a development job at Hasbro, where he began Family Game Night, based on the company’s catalog of games. Then came a year of freelance consulting and continuing connections to find the next step.

"People often forget—a lot of this business is learning how to manage upwards and downwards,” Ilagan says. “Knowing who you are working with and who you are working for. As best as you can—it's not always an easy read—how do you make the most of those relationships that you create and you build and you make in each project you work in and each company you work for?”

The connections led to a call from Nickelodeon to help expand the company’s unscripted programming. Within a month of the call, Ilagan was brought aboard as an executive consultant for unscripted development, and is now the Vice President of the division. He’s helped to bring about Paradise Run, Jojo Siwa: My World with Youtube star JoJo Siwa, and the recently premiered Keep It Spotless, a show in which two teams compete to be the least messy in what resembles a human paint-spinner.

Ilagan is particularly proud of Keep It Spotless, he says, because it tackles the main challenge of unscripted programming: keeping up and keeping things exciting. "What I love about it is that it's a prime example of how we're trying different things here with unscripted, really trying to freshen up what you expect from us, unscripted-wise.”

Keeping pace with the ever-changing glut of content is his greatest challenge, Ilagan reveals, but one that feeds him with energy. Between Youtube and Netflix, Snapchat and, "our audience has so many different choices now in terms of how to consume content. So we're really trying to find ways to stand out. Not just what's out there from others but what we've done before. What I love about what we've done with unscripted is if you look at all the shows we had in our unscripted slate...we're presenting something different and fresh and new while still staying true to our brand, which is fun and funny and fresh and playful."

Ilagan’s main advice to those looking to break into the entertainment sphere is the key to his roadmap from intern and CBS page to content VP: networking and preparation. "The big thing is networking and meeting people...especially if you find somebody who champions you and almost mentors you, that's a bigger plus to have,” he says. “Then the other thing, too, is just being ready to jump in and take advantage of an opportunity when it presents itself to you. A lot of those times, you don't have time to plan for it, so you just need to make sure that you have the skills and that you're ready to tackle it whenever it happens."

Additionally, he advises newcomers to stay informed on not just what’s working in the industry today, but also what’s not working, and why. "It's very important to be aware of the competitive landscape, even if it doesn't 100% apply. A lot of people will say, ‘This show doesn't work because it sucks.' Well, why? There are reasons why some things don't work, and knowing those reasons helps you shape what you need to do to make something work."

Still a daily viewer of The Price is Right, an avid board game player, and even an (admittedly poor) contestant on HQ, Ilagan has turned his lifelong passion for games into a blueprint for success, and that keeps the goal today simple. "I just want to create something that will give people some fun and some enjoyment, to give people a break from—especially these days, from all the craziness that's going on. And that's why I love working at Nickelodeon. It's just pure fun.”

A Special Offer from The Lambs (NY)

The Lambs, in New York City, is a private social Club founded in 1874—they're the first professional theatrical Club in America and, in fact, the oldest professional theatrical organization of any sort in America. Conveniently located in midtown Manhattan at 3 West 51st Street, they have a pub, hotel rooms (available to Lamb members for their own use and, at a slightly higher rate, for guests of Lambs members), a pool table, several rehearsal rooms with pianos, and a wide range of activities. They're a small club, and very friendly.

Our friends at The Lambs have made a special offer to Harvardwood members who wish to join The Lambs, a dramatic reduction of their Initiation Fee (a one-time fee paid at the time of joining). Their regular Initiation Fee is 55% of the first year's dues (they have several membership categories, with different dues in each category). For example, Professionals in Entertainment & The Arts resident in New York pay annual dues of $625, so the regular Initiation Fee in the category would be $343.75. But a Harvardwood member would have the Initiation Fee reduced to 25% of dues, which would be $156.25.

If you're interested in learning more about joining The Lambs, make sure you are logged in and complete this brief interest form. Then we will provide an introduction to the appropriate people at The Lambs.
