My Advice To The Upcoming Talent

Every actor has a unique talent that he or she knows how to play, that’s why there can only be one Kelvin hick,so they should practice being unique and only borrow what might help them enhance their actual skills.
Most importantly take your work seriously,no matter how small it is there will be a reward just learn to follow before you can live.
Life on set is not easy,this is a daily job and it’s been a real struggle. I just got to learn that true strength comes from the inside and you got to anticipate your fear and face the threat, mostly hold on to every genuine person you meet. At this point of life; people are only driven by ego, status and money and at the end good souls are ruined, all in all never give the devil a ride because they will always want to drive.
