Today, we welcome actor and musician Brandon Scott to the show. Currently recurring on hit shows such as Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why”, “Dead to Me” and NBC’s “This is Us”, Brandon continues to pop up on our television screens time and time again. Today, he walks us through his journey from waiting tables in Times Square to working opposite heavy hitter actors, Al Pacino and Christopher Walken, and how, year after year, he still finds the joy in discovering and rediscovering his own individual actor “technique.”
As a member of the IAMA Theatre Company in Los Angeles, we’ll hear Scott emphasize the importance of what he calls, “Tribe Vibe Mentality” and getting involved in a creative, supportive community for the purpose of collaboration and the beautiful opportunities that unfold as a result of being of service to your fellow artists. Today, Brandon is candidly honest about his struggles with anxiety, insecurity, and even his dislike of memorizing lines! He shares how he continues to work through these feelings and how asking the question of whether this is truly what he wants to do with his life, always allows him to connect back to his “why” and his purpose for creating.
Today, we’ll hear everything from the ultimatum Scott set for himself if he didn’t get into Tisch School of the Arts, to his audition story for Grey’s Anatomy with noted casting director Linda Lowy, to how he uses song in his preparation to help him find those hidden moments between the lines.
