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. Taking on any role is like living another life.  Once script is received, I begin to study it as if it were a graduation test and with out success I can’t excel.  Living my regular life as the character before the shoot is the best way to show a true feel for the character.  If it’s possible , to study the character if applicable.  Acting out scenes in current life situations and making the role a part of your daily routine.  Becoming the character practicing emotion, stress and response in body language is all in part becoming the character.

Q.  Who is your favorite actor and why?

A. My favorite actor is Denzel Washington  and Lawrence Fishburn.  Their ability to come to life in their roles as actors is chilling.

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

A. To play a human rights activist in a bio pic.

My advocacy to play the role is my life.

A. Being the legacy and grandson of BB King, my world is built from the relevancy and success of my efforts.

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

A. Haven’t had that problem yet. They have been  pretty easy roles.

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

A. I enjoyed playing my self in my last film, “King” a drug dealer/Mob Boss.

Q.  Tell us about where you got your training?

A. Self taught, never had any official film training.

Q.  What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A MOMENT WITH CROWLEY’S TOMB…JIMMY MANFREDY

I am very, very excited to announce that actor Jimmy Manfredy has accepted such multiple roles as Detective Bloom, Evil Clown, and Druid Monk just to name a few. Film production begins summer of 2017.

Jimmy Manfredy1.

Today we finally caught up to the very busy actor & Sifu  Jimmy Manfredy…

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-  My process is fairly simple, I read everything written for my characters in the script and break down why this person would think the way they do and acts the way they do, all the way down to what their speech pattern might be.  Then I go out into the world to find similar things in everyday people and use that as building tools for the persona I need to portray.

Q-  Who is your favorite actor and why? 

A-   Robin Williams:  I’ve always loved his ability to bring joy to everyone by using his imagination.

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

A-    My dream role I’m a little to old for now, I always wanted to play Peter Parker AKA Spiderman…lol

Jimmy Manfredy3.

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

A-    I prefer the hero. I grew up rough and I’ve always wanted to help people no matter how bad the situation, so I like to project that kind of positivity. However I don’t mind villain roles because they always need to make the hero look like one…lol

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

 A-    I am a Die hard “Power Ranger Fan” especially the original Green Ranger Tommy  played by Jason David Frank….lol

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

A-     I played the role of Sam Knight in a film called “Always Live Laugh Love”, that role was the hardest because my brother in the film was dying of cancer which hit close to home for me, my Father and Grandmother passed away in 2009 and 2010 from cancer, so it brought back a lot of painful memories.

Jimmy Manfredy5.

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

A-     My favorite role so far has to be my recent role in the film “Read Between The Lines” an action comedy where I play Jimmy an undercover DEA agent with a very anxious partner. It was a fun and playful role to play while also doing the fight/stunt coordination for. I loved working with everyone involved.

Jimmy Manfredy2.

Q-    Tell us about where you got your training?

A-    My first experience in acting was with my high school theatre arts class and clubs. I also received personal acting training from my good friend Thomas Altman production Manager for the Winter Haven, FL theatre and the many wonderful coaches there. Since I’ve been a life long martial artist I also tried my hand in stunt work and I absolutely loved it. I really enjoy having the ability  to use my Martial Arts skills to create amazing fight sequences to tell a physical story to go along with the dialogue. For me it was a dream com true. In addition I sought out the guidance and trained with my good friends, veteran Hollywood Directors, Actors, Stuntmen, Stunt/Fight Coordinators Art Camacho and John Kreng, both of these men have been a wealth of knowledge and great mentors..

Q-   What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A-   Find as many like minded positive people to surround yourself with and seek out every possible source of information that will help you achieve your goals and never give up no matter what anyone says!

Jimmy Manfredy4.

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

A-    Well in my case, I already occupy my other loved profession, I own and am the chief instructor at Twisting Tiger Academy. It’s a Martial Arts school where I help positively shape young minds for a better future themselves.  I also teach men and women of all ages to defend themselves from would be attackers.
