Featured Interview

Patrick Gorman talks about the business of acting.

Whether you’re an actor, writer, director, producer, musician, or an all-around entertainer, the first thing you must do every morning is BELIVE. Believe that you have the skills, the knowledge, the talent, and the determination to succeed. Success starts in the mind, but it must be backed up by determination and discipline. If you don’t convince yourself that you’re capable and talented, how will you convince a total stranger?

If you’re well equipped mentally, physically, and professionally, no obstacle will stand in your way.

Bethany Rooney & Mary Lou Beli
