The Late Bloomer Actor

The Late Bloomer Actor

This podcast series will focus on the journey of late bloomer actors, the trials and tribulations of starting on a journey in the acting world that many (or dare I say, most) actors commence in their early 20’s or 30’s, and usually via a 3- or 4-year formal drama school education straight out of senior high school. I will endeavour to bring on guests that are fellow late bloomer actors to learn from their acting journey. And also, industry guests that can advise us late bloomer actors on how to navigate the world of acting in their particular domain, whether that be casting, acting classes, indie or student films or just how to navigate the world of social media and self-marketing.

So many times in my discussions about my journey as a late bloomer actor, I bring up the negatives ...
