After her first full length movie, She acted in two short films, ‘Food For Love’ and ‘Two Cheeseburgers: Part 3’ in 2012 and 2013 respectively. Willa always felt that a movie was too short and intense a session to build up a character for her fans to assess, so from 2014 to 2016 she shifted her focus to the small screen and appeared in a number of serials including ‘Alpha House’, ‘The Novice’, ‘Royal Pains’, ‘Scream’ and ‘Bull’. She also has television credits in ‘Blue Bloods’, ‘The Following’ and ‘Gotham’ as a guest artist. In her opinion, television serials portray a character in a better manner as the actor gets feedback from the audience and has the opportunity to improve upon their performance with every episode. Willa loved this aspect of television and almost lived each role of hers in real life.
