#ThrowbackThursday

Happy Throwback Thursday to the time I got to appear on Daytime Television to promote the play “The Sunshine Boys”! It was so much fun being interviewed at Rogers TV, and advertising for local community theatre.

So far it’s been a busy season filled with lots of auditions and callbacks, and it’s just about to get busier! Summer is as hot as ever and festivals are everywhere! I hope you’ve had a chance to check out some local artists lately. I did this past weekend at ‘Taste of the Danforth’ in Toronto. And I definitely took the opportunity to enjoy one of my favorite activities – eating!

For the upcoming weekend, here are some inspirational words…

“Just because Fate doesn’t deal you the right cards, it doesn’t mean you should give up. It just means you have to play the cards you get to their maximum potential.” – Les Brown

Here are some highlights on some of the topics we discuss…

  • Learn about my love of ketchup
  • Ross shares a (somewhat irrelevant) personal story about contact lenses
  • We talk about forgetting lines on stage and missing cues
  • Marcio and Melissa talk about learning new skills to get parts
  • “If you’ve touched something once, you can do it”
  • We talk about the importance of believing in yourself, keeping positive and dreaming big
  • “You’re never as good as they say and you’re never as bad as they say”
  • We talk about bad auditions and some of my worst experiences
  • Marcio + Ross = Moss

Enjoy, and let me know what you think!
