Conversation with Daniel Bostic, the Fresh face!

So, this week we caught up with the actor virtually via conversations and we posed some interesting questions for Daniel Bostic and he had very interesting answers!

Me: How has your journey so far been in show biz ? 
Daniel: Amazing, I've gone places I never thought I would. Sure its meant a lot of late nights and miserable rejections, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Me: Your tips to young actors and wannabe actors? 
Daniel: Start small, take indie film jobs, extra slots, student films. This is an industry that is about making connections. Use your down time to hone your craft through workshops and classes and be willing to start small and move up. Above all keep a great attitude. The film industry is very tight-knit and its crucial that you don't burn any bridges.

Me: What are your future plans? 
Daniel: To be honest I don't know. I'm taking it a day at a time and seeing what God has for me. I'm going to continue staying involved in the film industry for the time being. I'm also considering going to school for a more "practical" degree in something like business so that I can have something to do between projects.

Me: As a career, do you think there is growth for young talents in Hollywood? 
Daniel: Let's face it, this is a competitive and crowded industry. That being said ,I see a lot of cities opening up to film production companies and there is more and more work available in cities like Atlanta, New York, and Charlotte. This is really the opportune time for young actors to get involved.
Me: How do you balance your personal and professional life? 
Daniel: For me its all about prioritizing. Some times this means turning down an audition because I need time to recoup from a project, or sometimes it means turning down friend time to drive to a shoot, either way it's a balancing act, but thats also what makes it fun!

Me: Any Girl Friend(s) :) ? 
Daniel: I have a lot of friends that are girls, but not a girlfriend. It's sort of a sacrifice I've had to make with my lifestyle. I simply don't have time or energy for a relationship right now, but that being said, if the right person came along I would probably find a way to make it work. :)

Me: Do you have any fitness secrets that you'd like to share with us? 
Daniel: One of the things that has been most helpful to me is finding a gym partner. I've found when I have a consistent gym partner I actually look forward to going to the gym and I don't burn out or become bored as easily.
