What Inspired you to pursue acting?
Well, I’ve been entertaining since a very young child. I first got into singing because my mother encouraged me to join our church choir. From there, that turned into writing and performing at various events and public venues. So from recording music as a rapper and singer, being a natural creative and loving a variety of films; acting was just a natural transition I believe. I remember watching actors like Denzel Washington and Leonardo Dicaprio, and saying to myself, “man the passion they have as this made up character is so passionate and convincing – I think I can do that too”! And so, I did. Here I am, and loving every moment of it.
What is your dream role?
My dream role doesn’t have an identity. It has attributes. I would love to play a character that is very complex, and goes through various emotions with a wide range of characteristics. Such as: happiness, anger, goofiness, introspectiveness, sarcasm, ignorant etc. I’d want to really have the character develop throughout the story so that as many of these attributes come to life. Also, I would most likely want the category to be mostly drama and/or action. Ohh, and I would love for the character to be considered a “bad guy” in the story.
