Why You Rock
4. So what is your claim to fame?
CX: I made the multikulti queer urban funny ha ha feature film Stud Life
KT: Ian Mckellan (Gandalf) saw me as the lead in a play when i was 12.
RK: My weird accent. It sounds like a combination of Scottish, Jamaican and London all at the same time. Now that I live in New York American may creep in there too!
SS: I’m too lame to have a claim to fame. I just muddle along. Oh and I was also blessed to be a part of the movie ‘Stud Life’! (Campbell X in the house!)
5. What made you do what you are doing?
CX: I wanted to see stories told from a queer PoC cultural perspective on the big screen. We have many but still need more!
TM:I keep asking myself that very question… I couldn’t do anything else its am innate calling and the very best job in the world
KT: I wanted to make a difference somehow and Acting was also always a form of escapism for me… stepping into someone else’s nicer shoes for a bit.
RK: An artistic and supportive family. My parents met at an audition. It was inevitable.
SS: Well I’m doing all sorts of different things at the moment, primarily out of impulse and a sense of “this hasn’t been done before, let’s do it”, or if it has, “how can we do it differently?”
6. Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
CX: On a beach sipping a frozen Margarita. <– Yah dahlink
RK: Living and working as an actor between New York and London. A transatlantic dream.
SS: Living and working in another country, with a new language under my belt, in a creative sphere that is dynamic and progressive.
