I’ve alway love theater since I was about 15 or 16.I remember when I was 15 I went to visit my Aunt and Uncle In California and the 1st thing my aunt said to me as soon as my sister and I got off our 4hr plane from Chicago she says “So your mom tells me you want to be an actor?” And I bashfully say “yes”. When I was younger I wanted to be an actor because of the money and fame and be like Will Smith and meet Oprah Ironically Uncle happens to be a manager in Los Angeles and the 1st thing he asked and said ” so you wanna be an actor? hm? what happened to baseball?” and I say “yes I want to be an actor and I don’t like baseball anymore its not fun for me anymore” then of course he challenged me like i knew he would with a cold read from “How high”(Could you Imagine a Fifteen year old Brent Williams reading a monologue from a stoner movie that I haven’t seen at the time ), and after I read it he asked me
"If you could be famous would you sell your soul to the devil? think about it consider everything"
And Of course in 1.5 seconds say “yes” hoping he could make it happen within my week visit in california.
but now a few years later I’ve realized that it’s so much more than the fame and fortune.
I LOVE acting because every time I get on a stage or in front of a camera or behind microphone I’ve been given the opportunity to change a life more than any politician or any Science lecture from a professor from Princeton. I’ve made the clear decision to relate with an audience member or an director even a fellow actor by laughing with you, by loving with you, by crying with you……….. and I have never even met you.. but I love you . I really Do. And thank you for the opportunity to be apart of your life.
I let go. I alway get too caught up im my feelings and think that people care about me when then dont they search for opportunities to further their ” Luck” I always believe them and they screw me over but I thought things where different this time but their not they never are or they abandon me during hard times either way it’s going to end.
