Realizing I was an actor & the second movie...

Going to register at Central Casting

Realizing that actually, maybe, I chose the wrong path with social science and law, I quickly signed up with every casting place in Boston that accepted cold submissions. I heard about Central Casting in New York from some guys on set so I wanted to go register with them as well. I had to be on set as often as possible, that’s all I knew.

It didn’t take long for me to get a call from Boston Casting, they wanted me for a fitting for another film this one much different from Detroit They were doing a movie called Professor Marston And The Wonder Woman, it was about the author of the original Wonder Woman. A very interesting story, and man. Not a big role, just playing a student - but these costume fittings were exciting. I loved being in a themed outfit. This was set in the 30s I believe.

This was only my second time on set but again I was asked to be in front of camera and to do a bunch of stuff with this girl who was lovely, her name has left me sadly. But we had a great few days on set. After this I was ready to go to New York and register for central casting, but first I had my first real audition for a film who held their audition at Boston University. I’ll never forget this night, I wasn’t nervous per se but I was definitely anxious. I did so bad I remember if so well, I looked up in the audition room and immediately recognized that I was not ready. I had a lot to learn, a lot to read and a lot to experience. But I was glad I went, I didn’t get the part nor did I deserve to. But the experience made me grow and looking back this was a great moment. It kind of set me on this crash course with the profession that I‘ve been on over the course of the last 2 years.

Getting to experience how Michael Keaton works was an extremely satisfying experience for me. Observing him, studying how he did his thing when he was on set- that’s how I knew I made the right decisi
