PREVIOUS CAREER: ACTING

One of my passions besides writing is acting. Throughout my time in high school, I spent all four of my years participating in a variety of different plays such as Charlotte’s Web, Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.

In Charlotte’s Web, I played Homer Zuckerman, which I portrayed with an accent similar to John Wayne’s. In Hamlet, I played the ghost of Hamlet’s father, which I did by impersonating a madman. With Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, I had two roles, Polonius and one of the pirates. While playing Polonius, I portrayed him as a zealot who was eager to serve. During the pirate scene, I poked my head out of one of the barrels with a bandana wrapped around my head, an eyepatch, and sword in my teeth. In addition, we also did a musical for Peter Pan and I played a pirate again, but I added even more energy into the role by making my character overzealous when it came to making Captain Hook happy.

Later in life, I learned how to do voice acting and impressed my instructor with an impersonation of Skeletor from He-Man. One might say that I excel at imitating eccentric and crazed characters. I might do some acting again. Only time will tell.

  1. The more writers I get to know the more I realize have dabbled in a lot of the arts. I’ve done singing, acting, dancing, and such myself. Acting I think is a huge asset because it helps you understand how to write realistic dialogue that reads can connect with. So awesome to hear about your experiences.
