Zach Avery Interview

Join Jeff Graham as he sits down with Zach Avery to discuss their current projects!

Widely known for his character acting in various roles over the last few years, Zach Avery is taking his career to the next level with multiple movies set for release in 2019. After years of bit parts in films, his upcoming breakout performance opposite “Mr. Robot” star Carly Chaikin, in the psychological thriller, LAST MOMENT OF CLARITY,  set to to be released in early 2019, should potentially land him on the list of talents to watch in the next few years. Also planned for release in early 2019, Zach will be seen in THE WHITE CROW, the story of legendary ballet dancer Rudolph Nuryev, directed by Ralph Fiennes, which was previewed at the Telluride Film Festival in late 2018, and picked up by Sony Pictures for distribution.

A Midwesterner at heart, Zach spent his teens playing football and dabbling in high school theatre, ultimately playing for Indiana University until an injury ended his NFL dreams. While the arts continued to be a hidden passion, upon graduating he entered the Doctoral program at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. While there, he was also attending underground comedy shows and joined local theaters groups, which ultimately let to the decision to shift gears and take a leave of absence from his schooling to pursue acting full time. To fund his goal of moving to LA, he began selling Quickbooks software door to door in the Chicago suburbs and finally made the move west on New Years Eve 2011.

Acting classes helped him get acclimated to LA and meet upcoming directors that lead to work on shorts and indie films, but he also found that cultivating relationships have been the most effective way to get roles, finally landing CURVATURE in 2017 via his friendship with Producer Andrew Levitas. That collaboration led to a co-starring role opposite Kate Beckinsdale and Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje in FARMING, which premiered at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival and subsequently landed him his role on THE WHITE CROW. 

His greatest role to date has been that of husband and father to his toddler son. An outdoorsman at heart, Zach spends his downtime enjoying his newly adopted hometown of LA with Laker games, hiking, skiing, practicing his scuba diving skills and enjoying nature with his growing family.

Interview w/ Tamara Loehr

Host Timothy Rodriguez interviews Tamara Loehr on our Mini Spotlight series about her new book Balance is BS.

Confronting head-on that the “work-life balance” doesn’t actually work, Tamara has figured out a new solution after more than 20 years as a global entrepreneur. She outlines how to ditch expectations, uphold one’s values and embrace a work-life blend. “Balance is B.S.” is a handbook, with practical exercises, designed to change the mindsets of women in the U.S. who are the primary breadwinners of their households.

“Balance is B.S” is designed to inspire all employed women – entrepreneurs, business owners, executives, etc. – who are the primary earners in their households, juggling work and personal commitments. Regardless of career trajectory or level of earning, the book is inclusive to all working women – married, single, in same-sex relationships and with or without children. Tamara speaks into a variety of topics and provides expert real life advice in her book — including: “How to ditch balance and get people on board with blending”; “How to cope with pressure and keep your financial promises,”; “How to get over guilt and be the parent you want to be”; “How to foster friendships that bring out your best,” and many more. The book also includes exercises designed to help the reader identify their values, and re-asses their lives. A portion of the book sales proceeds will go to the Global Giving Initiative, B1G1, to provide business loans to women in developing countries (Buy1Give1).

“My new book calls the ‘B.S.’ on ‘balance’ and presents a different way,” says Tamara, “giving women permission to blend their work and personal lives together without getting burned out. Women are increasing their expectations in their careers, but are not adjusting their expectations around their partners, parenting and personal lives.”

Tim Lounibos Interview

Join Timothy Michael as he sits with Tim Lounibos!

Tim Lounibos returns with perfect timing as Hollywood begins to embrace diversity.

Much was expected of Lounibos when he first entered the biz in the 90’s. He was branded as part of an “exciting new breed of Asian American actors with widespread mainstream appeal” and went to work immediately on such shows as Star Trek: The Next Generation, Suddenly Susan, and The Nanny, as well as recurring guest stars on Beverly Hills, 90210, The Practice, JAG and The West Wing. He also starred in the feature film Erotique, which was one of the first US films shot in Hong Kong.

Eventually, Lounibos entered what one network executive termed the “tweener stage” — too old to play the young buck, too young to play the dad — so Tim made the difficult decision to leave Hollywood to provide for his growing family.

As fate would have it, Tim’s acting would be greatly enhanced as he learned real-life experience running a business and supervising hundreds of employees, all the while striving to be a good husband and father and gaining a newfound sense of groundedness and gravitas.

Then, as onscreen diversity began reflecting the face of society, Tim realized his mixed-race combination of German/Irish/Asian along with his seemingly unlimited acting range made the timing right to leap back in.

So far it has proved to be quite successful as Lounibos has quickly stacked up a new set of credits, booking such shows as A.P. Bio, Criminal Minds, Doubt, The Real O’Neals, and The Young and the Restless. In 2019, Tim is set to guest star on Hawaii Five-0 and NCIS and recur throughout the fifth season of Amazon Studios’ Bosch.

Indeed, timing is everything.

Eric Lampaert Interview

Join Ashley Allen as she sits with Eric Lampaert!

There’s not much that’s funny about our immigration system at all, so please know I’m not making light of it here. I leave the sarcastic comedic criticism to the experts like Eric Lampaert – who – true story – is a citizen of three different nations due to the fact that he is an ‘alien of extraordinary ability,’ at least in the U.S. This sparked his Edinburgh Fringe Festival show of the same name, and is now being released as an album on Blonde Medicine, coming out November 9th.

Kirk Taylor Interview

Imagine beginning your professional acting career convincing Francis Ford Coppola that you have a good idea for a scene; then moving on to work with film artists as varied as Stanley Kubrick, Spike Lee, and Charles Bronson.  For actor Kirk Taylor, success as a young actor three decades ago gave him the confidence he needed to expand his career into becoming a respected acting teacher and accomplished musician.

Now, Kirk Taylor is finding his “second act” as a film performer, appearing in the new musical film “Revival!,” a new rendering of the Gospel According to John.  Produced by and starring Harry Lennix (“The Blacklist”), Taylor stars as Cephas (known as Simon Peter), the apostle who denies knowing Jesus, appearing with an all-star cast that includes Chaka Khan, Michelle Williams, and T’Keyah Crystal Keyman.  “Revival!” opens in select cities this December, and is co-directed by Danny Green (“Troubled Waters”) and Obba Babatunde (“Miss Evers’ Boys”), and features a gospel-inspired score by Grammy nominee Mali Music.

A student of both Lee Strasberg and Stella Adler, Kirk Taylor’s life as a performer has found him working regularly in memorable supporting roles in films such as “Death Wish 3,” “School Daze,” “Full Metal Jacket,” and later in acclaimed indie dramas like “MacArthur Park” and “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.”  He’s seen his share of parts left on the cutting room floor, and his name left out of the credits, but that hasn’t stopped Taylor from finding success and praise from all corners, from strangers who recognize him from a key role in a favorite film, to a chance encounter with Sidney Poitier that left a lasting impression.

Guided by his deep faith and a lifelong respect for the craft of performing, Taylor’s resurgence on the big screen follows years of work as an acting coach and stage performer, with Broadway, regional, and off-Broadway credits in both contemporary and classical works.  An avid musician and composer, Taylor’s creativity knows few bounds, and the stories he tells about a lifetime of professional work reflect unique insight into the trials and tribulations of a show business career.

Paxton Booth Interview

Meet Paxton Booth: an 8-year-old BMX rider, Tim Burton film lover, and series regular on Disney Channel’s new TV show Coop & Cami Ask The World. Paxton stars alongside castmates Ruby Rose Turner, Dakota Lotus, Albert Tsai, Olivia Sanabia and Rebecca Metz. The show follows a brother-sister duo who make almost all of their decisions — both mundane and madcap — by crowdsourcing opinions from the millions of followers on their online channel ‘Would You Wrather.’ Paxton plays ‘Ollie Wrather,’ the fearless and enthusiastic younger brother of the duo. The show, which premiered this October, is currently in it’s first season.

Watch this “Coop & Cami” trailer to see Paxton take a sink bath in leftovers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ9hTBGC3XQ

Although only 8 years old, Paxton is no newcomer to gracing TV screens. As a talkative toddler with a love for being in front of the camera, he began his professional acting career at just 2 ½ years old near his hometown of Ventura, CA. He has since made appearances in dozens of national commercials and landed several guest star roles on popular TV shows including NBC’s Emmy-award winning sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, ABC’s The Real O’Neals, Amazon’s The Romanoffs, TV Land’s Teachers, and ABC’s unscripted series The Toy Box as a judge.

Paxton Booth talks about “Coop & Cami” with Celebmix:

While on set, Paxton never shies away from an exciting stunt thrown his way. Although he doesn’t have any formal stunt training, he has carried out several stunts on the set of Coop & Cami with the supervision of a stunt coordinator. Paxton’s fearless nature translates both on and off set, as he has been riding BMX bikes since the age of 3 – around the same time he took off the training wheels on his bike. Racing his BMX bike through skateparks and pump tracks has helped Paxton as an actor by increasing his body awareness. While, his love of automobiles also runs the course of a smaller, plastic track – with his collection of over 1000 Hot Wheels. Having spent countless hours at car shows and museums, he has developed an immersive knowledge of classic cars, noting details on every single one of his Hot Wheels toys.

Beyond car museums, Paxton has an admiration for the arts and loves visiting both classic and street art museums. He also has a fascination with less artistically praised, poorly assembled ‘50s black and white horror films.Captivated by the horror genre, Paxton deeply admires the directorial style of Tim Burton and dreams of being cast in one of his films. Paxton also loves listening to ‘80s rock music, often jamming out to David Bowie. As a fashionable youngster, he admires Bowie’s standout style and strives to match his confidence of wearing whatever he wants. Eventually, he would love to have his own clothing line of eccentric styles.

Outside of Paxton’s passions for art and activities, he loves getting hands-on with philanthropic pursuits. He actively supports charitable causes surrounding animal rescue (such as the two rescue pit bulls he grew up with), bringing happiness to other children that are ill/underprivileged, and spreading the importance of environmental awareness. He hopes to use his growing platform and voice to speak up for these philanthropic causes, the arts and promoting individuality at any age.

Christina Elizabeth Interview

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Mini Spotlight edition, is a short form interview series featuring actors & artists discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode host Steph Sabraw interviews Christina Elizabeth.

She was also featured in writer/director Mickey Keating’s indie horror thriller Psychopaths. She wrote, produced and starred in the dramatic short Pretext, all of which takes place during a tense conversation between a rape victim and her rapist. And she was the comical referee on the football betting series Cousin Sal’s Sure Thing.

A Nashville, Tennessee native, and a graduate of Northwest High School, Smith got her first taste of show business as a competitive dancer. During that period, as part of a tap dancing trio, she won the U.S. National Championship. However, acting was a stronger draw for her, and she soon began to appear in stage plays, music videos and commercials in her native Tennessee. She also made her feature film debut as the star of Happy and Dead, which was produced locally.

When opportunities dried up in Nashville (she had appeared in so many music videos, she was oversaturated in the market), she decided to pursue her acting ambition in Southern California.

One of her favorite early experiences was working opposite actress Geena Davis in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy, in which she portrayed a traumatized mother seeking treatment for her suffocating baby.

She also came to the attention of filmmaker Darrell Holmes who cast her as a popular girl in his romantic comedy Promenade. She then booked a victim role in the Morbid Minutes web series, which was directed by Ted Raimi, and she‘s the dippy bimbo sister opposite Bree Essrig in the Killer Sisters Midnight Hour horror movie review show for director Michael Williamson.

Smith’s other television credits include: YoungDays of Our LivesThe Young and the RestlessJimmy Kimmel Live! and Wacko Smacko. Her additional feature credits include: The RockerEverMountain, and she starred opposite Alan Ruck and Kathleen Wilhoit in director Mike Williamson’s horror short Deathly.

Comfortable with comedy roles, Smith is a veteran of The Groundlings, 10 West, and Upright Citizen’s Brigade. When she isn’t acting, she continues to dance; she’s passionate about animal rights, and fascinated with mythic storytelling from around the world.

 

Shawn-Caulin Young Interview

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Mini Spotlight edition, is a short form interview series featuring actors & artists discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode host Steph Sabraw interviews Shawn-Caulin Young.

Shawn-Caulin Young is a director, producer and actor who stars in the film Heart, Baby as ‘Crystal’, a devout transgender Christian who quotes scripture in support of LGTBQ+ rights. The film follows the true story of George (Gbenga Akinnagbe), an unbeatable prison boxer who turned down an offer from the 1984 US Olympic team in exchange for his freedom, his best friend and transphobic inmate, Doc (Jackson Rathbone), and his transgender female cellmate & love interest, Crystal (Young). To prepare for the role, Shawn lived as a trans-woman on and off set, and throughout the course of filming, experienced harassment both as a female and trans-woman. “I knew if I as a cisgender gay man was going to try and tell a trans story, I needed to know in my soul what life was truly like for a woman like Crystal. It was hard, but I wanted to experience the day-to-day and all the feelings that came with living as a trans woman, so I could try to honor Crystal, as well as my trans sister & brothers. I did it so I could be a true advocate and ally, not just another cisgender person who sympathizes.” Shawn also co-produced the film and has won awards for his performance. Heart, Baby will open in New York on November 16th at the Village East Theatre and in Los Angeles at the Ahrya Fine Arts Laemmle Theatre on November 23rd, with additional markets to follow. Shawn will next be seen in season 3 of “True Detective”, returning Sunday, January 13th, 2019 at 9pm. He is known for his guest roles on Netflix’s “Santa Clarita Diet”, Disney’s “Wizards of Waverly Place”, and Netflix’s “Godless”. Shawn is originally from New Mexico and has lived in England and New York. He likes to spend his spare time coaching and mentoring children and young adults around the world in the art of acting.

Taylor Grey Interview

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Mini Spotlight edition, is a short form interview series featuring actors & artists discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode host Steph Sabraw interviews Taylor Grey.

Taylor Grey has remained an inspiration for what she stands for – hard work, self-love, and girl power. Though she’s been on the down-low with music ventures since her last release “Poison,” she never stops growing as a Stanford student in Neuroscience.
