Hi peeps. It’s been a while since my last diary entry and what better time then after some good news?! I woke up this morning to find out Continuum Season 3 has a green light. I am so happy for the creators of this amazing show and for the cast & crew! It has been a pleasure and an honor to be a part of this adventure. I am humbled and so thankful… thank you thank you thank you…
That being said I would like to chat about bee’s. For many years scientists couldn’t figure out how bee’s where able to fly. Their body and wing proportion didn’t add up in what they understood to be the laws of aerodynamics. I LOVED this story. No one told the bee it couldn’t fly so it just did. As an actor I often considered myself to be a sort of bee. When I would hear someone tell me why I couldn’t do something…”Your too old, your look isn’t right, you aren’t in LA…” etc… I would think of a bee. For some reason the bee’s ability to fly when it “shouldn’t” was a source of strength for me. Of course scientists now understand how bee’s can fly. The mystery is gone and we all move on… But hold on. I think the story is still valid. Why do we need to understand THE HOW for something to be possible? Is it not enough to have a dream and work towards it? I would argue it is! I would also go as far as saying it’s what has gotten me here so far.
So now what? Now that I’m on a series the red carpet should be rolled out and jobs are given to me left and right! hahahah.. no! I’m still putting in the work. I’m still hearing the reason’s why I shouldn’t do things. That my entry into Film & TV was late. That I’m too old to go to LA and get a manager. Let me be clear. The people that say these things don’t do it to be vindictive. Rather, they actually believe them to be facts. What is life really except a series of subjective beliefs we allow to rule and control us?!
I am in this for the long haul. No matter what the outcome I will be involved in Film/TV in one capacity or another. I love it so much I really don’t see myself doing anything else. So with that resolution in mind I will be the bee. I will go after my dreams no matter how big, extravagant or UN-reachable. I will go after them because, like the bee, I don’t give a shit if you understand how I’m doing it. I’m doing it!
Thanks for reading… 🙂
