Since she was at a young age, the upcoming actress always believes whatever the heart wants, and her decision is always supported by her parents. They raised her to have a positive motto in life, “Whatever you do, whatever you love, go for it.” Such motto implies as long as it has positive impacts to her life. Asmara’s parents rarely limit her daughter to explore the limitless possibilities within her, from choosing her own high school, major in university, including her career.
Her face becomes known by public thanks to a movie role in Setan Jawa, since then Asmara has been pursuing her talents in both modeling and acting world —including in the recent 2018’s Pengabdi Setan. Dating back to her initial years before the showbiz industry, the eldest of the Sumiskum family once spent her uni years in Italia. “Dad is the smart type, he advised me to pursue my dream, whereas my mom has always been the patient kind of parent. So it’s balanced.”
What people don’t really know about her is that Asmara is also a dancer. Tango, flamenco, pole dance, and also on a non-related note: equestrian. It’s all about balance: working your heart out but also traveling once you’ve worked hard.
Now let’s talk fashion. In terms of fashion signature, can you share us more on that?
“My fashion signature is a mixture of something odd, something grand and something elegant. My role model for fashion is Cher and Zoë Kravitz.”
First thing that people notice about you? And personality wise, what surprised people about you once they get to know you?
“That they always found me very funny and entertaining. People wouldn’t guess that I cried easily, I think only my closet people know this.”
Describe yourself in 1 word? And why that word?
“Passionate. I feel because passion has always been the key to everything, it’s the fuel, it keeps the fire burning, it makes you feel alive, and it makes you feel that you are here in this life for that purpose. And I remember my contemporary art professor, Daniele Perra used to say ‘Passion always win’.”
