It was such a big and secretive step I took, and it was also a life-changing year for me! 👍
My Acting School friends in 2010
My parents were always supportive of my passion. They let me learned music, took me to see shows, and when I told them my dream of becoming an actor - they did what every sane parent would do, 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐫 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐝𝐢𝐬𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐞 𝐦𝐞! 🤣
I can’t blame them! Acting is definitely not a wise career choice, especially if you want to have financial stability, house, car, kids, etc., you can kiss them goodbye if you genuinely want to become an actor! Maybe you can have them after you become famous! 😏
But of course, my loving parents saw my desire to pursue art as a career, and finally, we reached an agreement that they would send me to film school to become a director/producer. 😶
For my dad, the producer is the “money man” in the film industry, the “business brain,” so at least, it’s still something to do with money.
He was right! 🤑
After I went to film school, I realized that I was so business-oriented in comparison to other artists. Still, the funny thing is that I’ve always felt I was too “artistic” for other business people when I was majoring in the business program!
Long story short, after I graduated film school, my desire to try out acting was still very strong, but I knew my parents wouldn’t be so happy about it, so I took the classes and eventually went on a full year of acting training without letting anyone knows. 😗
Now years later, I’ve become a professional actor. Even though I don’t know whether I’d ever make it as an actor, going to movies & theatres has still been a big part of my hobbies. 🥰
A few weeks ago, I finally had the chance to check out 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐥𝐨𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐫𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐓𝐨𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐨 - 𝐓𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐨𝐧! 💪
I always knew Tarragon as a great contemporary theatre but never had a chance to visit. Finally, I got to see this great theatre with a fantastic play -
𝐒𝐞𝐱𝐮𝐚𝐥 𝐌𝐢𝐬𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐌𝐢𝐝𝐝𝐥𝐞 𝐂𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐬.
It was a thought-provoking, well-craft play; what a blessing to be able to see this kind of world-class work in Toronto! 🤩
