How did She Venture into Acting?
One fine day in the year 2020, while casually browsing through her Instagram profile, Elva stumbled upon an advertisement about a production company hunting for a teen for its show. They wanted a native actor to join their cast.
Although she thought that the role might be for background actors, she reluctantly went for the audition. She was stunned when they gave her lines to read.

Interesting, isn’t it?
Later, in an interview, Elva was quoted saying that she used her learnings from the school film class for the audition. Additionally, she mentioned that the audition hall was full of native teens, and she was the only one with dyed hair. Her look floored Sterlin Harjo, and the makers decided that Jackie, her character, will have the same look.
Jackie had an androgynous look and the hairstyle Elva flaunted in real life when she was 16 and auditioned for the show.
Elva is only two-years-old in the entertainment industry, but she has managed to attain a safe spot in the hearts of her fans. She has four roles to her credit and a promising career in front of her.
