I’ve been mixed up in the acting business since I was very young.
Although, it hasn’t been a total success and is still in the realm of an elaborate hobby, the experiences I’ve had count as some of the best in my life. My summer at RADA was one of them. I’m in this business for the discovery because there is nowhere else that I want to be.
There are people who are more driven. That kind of naked hunger has mellowed for me. I audition for what interests me not for the sake of just trying to get any job that I can get.
What about auditioning? I’m forever restarting. Its a continual exercise in frustration and sheer nervousness. The audition is not only a hurdle but a barrier as well. Lately, I’ve been entertaining thoughts about just starting my own group/company. This desire took root last spring when my last acting group imploded because of warring personalities and bad planning.
Can I start my own group and be responsible for its survival?
