Klose can be seen in the movie "Lakeview Terrace," now in theatres across the country, which stars Samuel L. Jackson, Patrick Wilson and Kerry Washington. The movie is about an interracial couple that is being harassed by a crooked cop who disapproves of their relationship. Samuel L. Jackson is the villain of the movie and he hires Klose's character, a dancer, to seduce the hero and tempt him to compromise his principles.
Klose has lived in Hollywood for four years now and she misses home.
"I'm a little burnt out," Klose said. "I'm actually starting to really miss Alaska, and just being around real people and nature. I might take a break for a little bit."
This past summer, she was fantasizing about leaving tinsel town to work on a fish tender, slinging salmon into an icy boat hull. She missed nature and her childhood spent cleaning salmon, but summer passed and she stayed in California.
"I want to be like Juliette Lewis with a bunch of different crazy characters," Klose said.
Klose moved to Hollywood in 2004 after she won a Tropicana swimsuit contest at Marlintini's Bar in Juneau. She lived out of her car for a while by sneaking into private campgrounds at night. She carried a piece of wood in her car that she placed over the spiked entryways to campgrounds. She would sneak her car into the private campgrounds at night and leave early the next morning.
"My producer turned out to be a con artist," Klose said. "The other model wasn't a model at all. We put two and two together and realized he was not part of Maxim."
She was in a police station in South America with no passport or ID. Friendly locals intervened and helped her out of the situation.
Back in Hollywood Klose continued to work, throwing herself into the life of a model and actress. She attended acting classes, yoga classes and numerous auditions. She landed roles in low-budget horror films. People kept asking her to take her clothes off, but she kept saying no and even turned down an offer from Playboy.
"That's the business, (but) I stay true to myself," Klose said. "The only way to handle it here is to stay true to yourself and your morals."
Klose has never forgotten that she is from Alaska, and she has never felt entirely comfortable with living in Hollywood. She misses Alaska often, but it a sacrifice she made in pursuit of her dreams. Now, after four years of hard work, she is weighing her options.
"I really want to go to school to be an art teacher and teach art," Klose said. "That's something that makes me happy. Acting isn't something that I want to do forever. It just fell in my lap. If I book a TV series that would be cool. I've already accomplished far more than I ever thought I would, and I'm really satisfied."
