Well I must say it’s been a while! If you’ve been rocking
with me, you were a fan of this blog when it was published by Essence.com. If
you’re new to the game, I’ll tell you a little bit about myself: I’m an Actor.
They Don’t Get It. This blog started as a conversation between friends, which developed into a stage play in Los Angeles
and then a column on Essence.com.
I am an actor, also known as a performance hustler. I
never stop working, looking, seeking, auditioning, and persuading somebody to
give me a chance to make them laugh, cry, or feel at any given time for any
‘They’ in ‘They Don’t Get It’ can mean anyone who does
not live in the world of performing arts or freelance work.
We’re half way through 2013 and I’ve been at this acting
professionally thing since 2005 even though I’ve wanted to live inside the TV
since before Olivia took over the Cosby Show. I gave five years to Los Angeles
before relocating to Atlanta to take advantage of this southern hustle.
In this Atlanta Edition of I’m An Actor, They Don’t Get
It, I’ll tell you the differences between acting in Atlanta and Los Angeles, why
I made the change, and even share some of my grind strategies on getting in the
door. You can also look forward to some of my old Essence posts on throwback
Thursdays and some video blogs for things better left said.
If you know of anyone looking to get into acting, don’t
give them my number. Send them to this blog! Love is love. Feel free to comment
and share. I’m human. I respond. Coming up next, I’m going to give my review of
BET’s #BeingMaryJane. Look for a new post on everyday that begins with
Looking forward to the ride!
