What is your favorite thing about acting?
When it comes to acting, there is no better feeling than stepping out of your comfort zone by challenging yourself to be someone else. I think the rush of embodying a person completely different from your actual self is the where the fun happens. You get to push yourself to new limits through a character, that’s exciting!
What is the hardest part?
The hardest part about acting is not losing hope. This business is a dog eat dog world, everyone wants success just as much as the next person. You have to force yourself to maintain a focused and faithful mindset that you will make it. Patience, hope, and hard work is the key.
What are your tips for newbie actors?
Focus on yourself. Prioritize yourself. Train yourself. If you want to make it, you have to put yourself and your craft first before anything else.
What skills, training and education do you recommend?
I highly recommend Meisner Technique Training Program. It not only helped me reach new heights as an actor, but taught me so much about myself as well.
Who are your favorite actors/actresses and what do you learn from watching them?
My favorite actor is Adam Sandler and Jack Black. Their sense of humor shines through their acting which is truly inspiring for an aspiring actor.
What are your upcoming projects and career goals?
I plan to finish Meisner Technique and pursue other techniques to better myself as an actor. Long-term speaking, I hope to one day be known as one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood with multiple Oscar winnings to my name.
What is something funny that’s happened to you on the job that makes you love acting more?
One time I had to put makeup on for a part. As a middle eastern man, wearing makeup is frowned upon, however I loved trying something new and different. I have to say, my eyebrows were totally on fleek!
