Myhellofalife recently got a chance to interview with TAH about the experience of shooting with Toyota, his love for acting and how it all got started. Check it all out below in a quick Q&A..

Q: What was the experience like shooting the new Toyota commercial?

Answer:  It was a wonderful experience working with an International Corporation like Toyota

and with a renowned movie director by the name of Antoine Fuqua

(Training Day, Olympus has Fallen etc.)

Q: When did you know acting was something you wanted to pursue?

Answer:  The acting bug bit me in California on the set of the TV sitcom “Half & Half”.  The singing group UPSKALE was the background singers for the R&B Artist Tyrese Gibson.  Tyrese appeared on the show as a special quest.

Q: Any advice for people, interested in acting also?

Answer:  Follow your heart & work your plan!  I have to interject GOD into the plan.  You have to followWhat HE has for your life.  Register with a Talent Agency.  Take any & all acting courses available to you and keep GOD first in your walk down the Entertainment Avenue.

Q: What can we expect next from you?

Answer: Today, 5/15/13, I am going on an audition for a movie to be filmed in Louisiana. I’m Constantly auditioning for commercials, TV sitcoms & movies.  Presently, the Toyota RAV4 Commercial is running.  On many cable stations and websites.  In June, Im Appearing in the Film Hatchet 3 and still waiting on the release of the film Spring Break ’83. In that film I am Run of Run DMC.  Hopefully, also find the time to do some music recording.

Q: Place us in your mind & describe what’s your mind set before you go to an auditioning for a role?

Answer:  First, I have to settle down and read the script (sides) that has been sent to me.  Then, get into  character.  This will determine how I deliver my lines and project how the director wants the character to fit into various scenes or the movie itself.  Trust me it’s a task, but you can win the casting director and The movie director over.  So, prepare, prepare, prepare and above all Be On Time for your Auditions.
