A small taste of what’s to come…

 Here’s our Q and A session with Timothy!

 Q. It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?

A. Becoming another character is not about getting into that characters head, but rather letting him get into yours! To become another person you must immerse yourself in his world, understand how he thinks, but more important, why he thinks that. To do that research before taking on a role is critical. Whether it be delving into a book, or history, or, if possible, meeting the person to understanding who they are. Once you have grasp of the character you merge your thoughts with his and you begin to “character think”, the person you have become starts to develop his own thoughts. Once the mind has merged the body will follow and you will have now become the role. When on set, the wardrobe usually helps complete the transformation. Which allows the character to flow through the lines and not the acting saying the lines. Sometimes, it is necessary to get in character before camera rolls to have an easy transition. I will many times, ad lib lines to myself as the character to clinch the roll right before going on set.

Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?

A. Cary Grant and Jackie Chan are two of my favorite actors. Cary had incredible versatility, able to go from a goofy ball to a the suave and debonair heart throb very easily. Jackie Chan, was\is, simply brilliant. Not only was he a great martial artist, he developed his own style of entertainment which has been unmatched since.

Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character? 

A. I don’t necessarily have  dream roll. I want to help create new things that no one has seen before and tell a good story! A story that uplifts, or motivates, or challenges people to be better.

Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A. I prefer to play the hero. Being the Villain can be fun but with so much negativity in the world I love to play the person people would look up to!

Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.

A. My first dream was to play professional soccer! At 17 I toured Italy with a US team and in April 2011 I blew my knee out which destroyed my chances.

Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A. On film I haven’t had a hard roll but in high school I had the lead in the senior play and becoming a smooth, cool character was hard for me since I was the awkward dork in high school.

Q. On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A. Most fun roll was when I actually played a villain in  short student film. First fight I choreographed so that made it special. It had an extended woods chase scene with an epic ending battle.

A sample of Timothy’s work-

Q. Tell us about where you got your training?

A. I had taken 4 years of drama in High School but no formal film training.

Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A. Decide!! If you want to do something do it 100%! Don’t “give it try” or “see what happens”; decide whether or not you want to be an actor and then give it everything you have!

Q. If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

I would be doing entrepreneurial work!

A Moment With Crowley’s Tomb… Taylor Crumbley

 

 

Taylor CrumbleyCROWLEY’S TOMB CASTING UPDATES:
I am thrilled to announce actress Taylor Crumbley has landed multiple roles such as the seductive Gothic Vampire “Raven”, Gothic Ghost Hooker, Evil Demon and one of the Cemetery Boys Girlfriends. Film production begins summer of 2017.

Q  –  It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?

A-   The key to any kind of good acting is really knowing the character in your head. It’s easy to assume a character is one dimensional like the mean preppy girl or evil stepmom, etc. But nobody in real life is that simple. You have to really understand every side of how your character feels and reacts to be able to really portray them well. If there isn’t a story behind them, create one. As for researching, look up characters you think are similar, ask the writer how they view the character, and if it’s based on a book READ IT. The more you know, the better your character will be. Once on set I know things can get pretty goofy behind scenes but if there’s something emotional or big coming up its best to stay in character even when the cameras aren’t rolling because it really puts you in their mindset. It’s almost like you’re not acting anymore, but you’ve become that person.

Taylor Crumbley2. Q-  Who is your favorite actor and why?

A-   I have many but one of my all time favorites is Charlize Theron. I admire her level of commitment so much. Most people know her for her lighter work like in the Huntsman movies but if you watch her in that and then in the movie Monster, it’s like she’s not even the same actress. You can’t even recognize her. She did tons of research and really committed her whole body to that role and there is no better way of acting than that.

Q-  What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?

A-   I would really love to star in a drama. I love showing emotion and getting really intense. Films that really show a persons life and real human emotions and situations are incredible to me and I’d love to be a part of something like that.

Taylor Crumbley7. Q-  Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A –  Ha! Ha!! As much as I love the thought of the audience rooting for me in a film, I love playing the villain. They just always seem much more complex and in all honesty are much more fun to play. 😈

Q-  Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.

A-   When I was younger I actually dyed my hair brown because I never saw actresses with red hair. I thought I’d never get any work that way and since I’ve gone back natural I’ve gotten 10 times as many call backs. That actually really built my confidence and taught me never to doubt yourself.

Taylor Crumbley4. Q-  What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A-    I played a villain named insanity and I think that role was hardest because I had to become so emotionally unstable that I really seemed insane. She wasn’t just a mean villain, she blamed the hero for her deformities, and i felt that deep in the character she really yearned to be like the hero. So it was interesting to learn how to portray all those different things in such a short time. Plus it was my first time doing fights scenes and I had a lot of learning to do. Ha! Ha!

Q-  On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A-   Being a bloodsucker! I was a vampire named Valerie and that was fun because I think vampires are the perfect mix of evil and sexy. So you get to just be smug and awesome. We ended making our own fake blood which was interesting to say the least. And messy. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Q-  Tell us about where you got your training?

A-   Honestly I haven’t had much formal training besides my high school drama classes. I get most of my techniques from watching interviews of other actors and reading the articles on Backstage. I’ve been acting my whole life. I started out putting on plays for my neighbors (I have 8 siblings so it was easy to cast the shows 😝) and then just moved up from there. But there is always more to learn.

Taylor Crumbley5.
Q-  What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A-   Dedicate yourself and don’t give up. You’re going to hear just as many “no”s as you are “yes”s. Maybe even more. But hard work does really pay off. The more people see your commitment, the more opportunities you’ll receive.

taylor crumbley6.
Q-  If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

A-   I’m actually a business major so I’m hoping to one day run my own company. That is if I don’t become a movie star. Haha. I’ve just always been good at things like that and I’m pretty independent so I don’t see myself working for other people the rest of my life.
