Her busy schedules maybe the reason she prefers remaining single till date, or she might just be tending to keep her personal life out the media's eyes.
Moreover, her fans also crave to know if she is married and if she has thoughts of getting married anytime soon and welcome a husband in her life. But then again, she has not provided any significant clues regarding that and thus, we might have to wait and see if she comes up with anything exciting with regards to her love life.
Balancing careers between Acting And Singing:
People find it difficult to maintain a smooth flow to one career. But guess what it must be like for Tessa as she has two professions to take forth in her life, acting and singing.
In an interview, she was asked about her entry in her band. Replying to the query, she stated,
"I was singing in a choir and all of my friends were musicians. I was part of this vibrant community of L.A. bands but on the periphery of it. Caught a Ghost happened just by being friends with [bandmate Jesse Nolan]. I was really doing it for fun and then it became sort of supplemental."
Moreover, when she was asked if it is difficult to balance between acting and singing, she replied,
"On tour there have been moments where I had to make a last-minute audition tape. I did one in a venue's bathroom stall, literally in between soundcheck and the show. So there have been points when they conflict. But we're going to shoot a video with [White People director] Justin Simien, so there have been lovely points of intersection too."
Furthermore, she also revealed that she prefers acting more than singing. In her words,
"I've been acting longer, so [music] still scares me. I love the sensation of taking a deep breath and jumping; when I perform with the band that's what it feels like.
Similarly, after winning millions of hearts with her performance in "Creed," she was asked if having a musical background (her father was a singer and a songwriter too) helped her with the role. Addressing to the question, she said,
"I think [Creed director/co-writer] Ryan Coogler was really interested in authenticity and had thought that maybe Bianca would be played by a musician that was maybe making her acting debut. Then I think what he found is that he wanted to make sure that whoever played Bianca could really challenge Mike, both as a character and an actor. So I think at that point it made sense to have an actor step into the role."
"[Ryan and I] had met at Sundance when I was there with Dear White People and he was there actually just taking a break from writing Creed to just see some movies. I think it was helpful for him to know that I had been onstage, that I could be onstage. He didn’t know much about my writing specifically, but I think he felt pretty safe once he knew that I could be onstage and command that part."
