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!

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. First I read the script so I can get an idea of the story.  I then mark my lines & record them so I can get them memorized as quickly as possible. The quicker I get them memorized, the faster I can start experimenting with my character.  I also look on Youtube to see if there are other videos of that character to see how other actors portray them (if the character has been done before) just to get a flow of the role.  Then I start researching different looks to get ideas of makeup & different looks I think the character would look like.  Once I’ve done this, I create a background story as to why that character turned out like they did.
Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?
A. I’m a big musical theater fan as well as, old movies so my favorite classic stars of the past are Judy Garland, James Stewart.  Current stars are Robert Downey, Jr., Meryl Streep, Mandy Patikin & many others.

Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?
A. I’ve always wanted to do a voiceover for a full length animated or live action movie.  If I was doing a musical, my dream roles would be Mame, Golde from Fiddler on the Roof, any type of fun character role for a fantasy type movie or, a wacky neighbor or, mean villan that you love to hate. 🙂
Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?
A. It depends on the movie.  Villains are more fun to play because they’re more versatile but, I’ve played good guy roles too.  I really would have to say both depending on what the role was.

Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.
A. I’ve been tandem skydiving a few years ago & really loved it!  Would do it again!
Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?
A. It was a mom role on an episode called “Dead of Night” on Discovery ID Channel where my daughter was murdered by her ex boyfriend.  I don’t have kids so I took that feeling of grief that I’ve had for loved ones & applied it to the mom role.

Q. On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?
A. Mrs. Potts from the play “Beauty & the Beast” and also the part of Dottie in a comedy film where I played a Southern Boutique owner of a store with misfit employees who I sold to someone else.
Q. Tell us about where you got your training?
A. Graduated with a BA in Music from Stetson University in DeLand, FL where I had classical vocal training.  Also took acting classes from a variety of teachers here & attended seminars as well.  I also learned from just performing on stage in theatres but, also doing independent films working with many types of people & directors.

Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?
A. Don’t give up on your dream & don’t listen to dream stealers!  Do what makes you happy.
Q. If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?
A. A Veterinarian because I love animals & wanted to be a vet when I was younger.
