You might recognize Syd Wilder from the explore page of your Instagram where you can see her in full glam, usually wearing some sort of luxury lingerie posing for the camera. Syd has over 1.9 million followers on the platform who aren't only there for her good looks, the comedic actress has been creating her own skits for social media and is actually really funny.
If you're already familiar with Syd, you know that she recently got involved with OnlyFans like many people did during this pandemic, the platform has given creators the opportunity to connect with fans on a deeper level.
"First of all, OnlyFans completely saved me during the pandemic. I was grateful to be able to connect with my fans from all around the world! I've learned a lot about the many different ways the male brain works.."
We were lucky enough to do a little Q&A with Syd where we learn things like what her most embarrassing story is (it's amazing), why she's still single and what motivated her to get into the premium content world!
I'm a comedic actress turned influencer who has a podcast (Girl Instarupted), does many voiceovers, and has an online business, aka OnlyFans. Today I've done a lot of computer work, some editing, voiceovers, and OF messages.
I spill all the juice on Girl Instarupted but to give you a tease, I danced on stage with Prince when I was 16, and he said, "Damn, that white girl can dance." That will forever be a moment for me! 🥰
It's a double-edged sword. In some situations, it really helps, and in some cases, it really hurts.
I had a fan that didn't want to leave my side that came to a comedy festival for my web series, Fab Life Teresa XO. The fan insisted on going home with me, and Chris Franjola, who worked on the web series, kindly walked him on Hollywood Boulevard. I had to get security after that.
First of all, OnlyFans completely saved me during the pandemic. I was grateful to be able to connect with my fans from all around the world! I've learned a lot about the many different ways the male brain works. I've ironically learned a lot about business through OnlyFans - Which I've kind of nerded out on. I want to continue to connect with my fans and produce great content for them while maintaining my boundaries.
Mainly the pandemic . I've always been cast as the stripper, pornstar, hotwife, or bikini girl, so for me, OnlyFans isn't a big stretch from the roles I usually play. At least outside of what I've written for myself. I kind of look at it as that fun fantasy figure I get to play. Spoiler alert - I don't look dolled up every day.
Yes, I actually had to pause production because my OnlyFans took off last year, but I have close to 70 episodes that I'm really proud of. I interview celebs from Jim Jefferies, Margaret Cho to adult performers and mental health professionals. I wanted to create a platform where it's okay to talk about mental health, sex, sanity, show business, and soul. My hope is to relaunch it this year! I've already got some great interviews in the can.
Pink - I love her.
I usually research my guests thoroughly before they come on my show. I make sure my tech is set up properly and try to pick a few topics to focus on so the interview doesn't go all over. It's kind of like choreographing a dance.
Somewhere fabulous as magical in Capri, Italy.
Tragedy. I have a darker sense of humor but still, have a light heart.
What inspires your model shoots? Is it the same thing or are they totally different?
My location inspires them a lot. When I shot at the Fairytale Cottage in Topanga, my shoot was very ethereal and girly. When I shot at Justine Cross's dungeon, I was more dark and dominant. I like to play with both masculine and feminine energies.
I love @iamstevana and Hannah Berner.

I'm kind of an embarrassing person I always trip, fall or have lipstick on my teeth. I think because I'm a germaphobe and big on smelling good, taking a deuce on a tiny set makes me nervous and embarrassed AF. I always have poo-pourri with me.
I talk in my sleep.
I learned after my girlfriend encouraged me to "tell a joke" from my old stand-up set in front of that older country band, Big and Rich. I completely BOMBED. "Telling a joke" off stage doesn't work for me. For others, it does, but I like to slip jokes or ideas for jokes into casual conversations. It works better for me that way. I also don't do stand-up anymore, I'm more focused on voiceover, but I'm excited to work my characters into TikTok. I just started an account
Most embarrassing story - I was in the middle of a move and I went to the cable company. I was in such a hurry, I forgot to put on underwear. It usually isn't a problem, but I was on the first day of my period, and my tampon fell out in front of a guy, that I never wanted to see again, as I was trying to leave. I had to go back in the store, pick it up and walk back out. I avoided eye contact, and no one filmed it for social media.
It's never my real hair and because I have standards and don't want to settle. I also live in LA, and the men are rubbish here.
