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!
