Acting is the base skill of all my performing. It is my core! Here is a list of my Acting performances:
- Richard Maynard, Moon Over Buffalo, Mountlake Terrace High School 2016
- Young Ed, And Then They Came For Me, Mountlake Terrace High School 2015
- Merriman, The Importance of Being Earnest, Mountlake Terrace High School 2014
I decided to not include any musical theatre roles in this tab, and just leave them on the other tab.
I got into acting in the most cliche way possible, from taking a High School “Beginning Drama” class! After taking that class it really opened my eyes to Theater, and I remember going to auditions for the first play the next year, and just watching auditions. I decided not to audition, because I was terrified of auditioning in front of everyone. That was an awful idea. After that I decided that my junior year (the NEXT year) I would start theater. Guess what? I did! My Junior year I got cast in The Importance of Being Earnest. I can tell you this; My biggest regret in Theater is NOT starting earlier. I encourage you to do whatever it is you’re wanting to try. Time is the one thing you can never get back, and the earlier you start, the earlier the learning process starts. I like to think about how much further along I’d be as a performer if I started doing Theater a year earlier, it really rubs my peach’s knowing I missed a golden opportunity.
Acting is going to be a huge part of my life. I plan to consistently grow and take workshops, classes, courses, etc to further my growth as a performer. Acting isn’t just going to be a career for me either, it’s going to be a strategy I’ll consistently use in my life. By that, I mean that everything I learn to become a better actor, I’m going to apply to be a better human being.
You know what really makes Movies great? Amazing actors. Here is a list of my favorite actors:
- Johnny Depp. How could you not love Johnny Depp? Every single role he plays is so out of the box and takes a certain unique approach that he just executes beautifully. Also; He played the Wolf in “Into the Woods” and Sweeney Todd in “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” He’s a legend.
- Leonardo DiCaprio. This guy is insane. He deserved an Oscar before he came out of the womb. He takes so much focus to each role he does and you can feel the soul in all of his work. My favorite role of his was Cobb in “Inception” and I also loved Jordan Belfort in “The Wolf of Wallstreet” That was definitely a role outside of his comfort zone that he absolutely owned with so much commitment to the character.
- Rainn Wilson. Rainn is just a genuinely wonderful human being! He brought the character Dwight Schrute from “The Office” into so many lives and he plays that character with such passion. He also founded an amazing company: “Soulpancake“
- Jonah Hill. How do you judge a hardworking actor? Versatility. Jonah Hill is one of the most versatile actors of all time. He’s starred in the movie “Super Bad”, and he’s also been in dramatic pieces like “Moneyball”
