I have to say that my work takes a lot of devotion, dedication, and a little bit of luck.
I wouldn’t say that my work in the movie business is especially challenging compared to something like being in combat, but it does take a huge amount of work.
No matter how good you think you are at acting or how well you are able to memorize your lines or change things up, there’s always room for improvement no matter what. I have worked on TV shows, low budget movies, and live performances. Probably the live performances have been the most rewarding, but it’s awesome when you land a place in a movie series that becomes very popular. One thing that really helps me a lot to stay focused and relaxed is to have the perfect temperature control settings. I know that seems crazy, but you have to think about it. You need to be relaxed and comfortable to be able to focus on things and do good work. When you have the right temperature control settings, you can always work at your best. That’s why when I’m practicing my lines or working in a studio, I always insist the temperature control settings and even humidity levels have to be just right. I’m sure some people think I’m just spoiled for being strict about climate control, but there are many other people who do this work who would easily agree with me. There are situations where we have to be uncomfortable getting into intense scenes, but I can deal with that, so long as for the most part, I am able to have excellent temperature control settings.
