Interview with 'Wicked Conclusions' actor - Erik Searle
How did you break into the industry?
I got involved in the industry by first doing background work on Hollywood Productions. It was a wonderful experience and I moved on into doing bigger roles in films, taking classes, and networking.
Who/What inspires you as an actor?
Many actors inspire me. Leonardo Dicaprio, Daniel-Day Lewis, Denzel Washington, etc. I could go on and on. But also I'm inspired to tell a story and be someone other than myself.
What was your best set moment on 'Wicked Conclusions'?
There are so many it's hard to choose one. I think the best was having the dialogue between Chloe and myself. She is a great actress. The back and forth in the film between us has a genuine feeling to it. You can see us thinking in the moment and our true personalities. The drama and tension between us was great to watch.
What sort of person is going to love this short?
People who like suspense and surprises. Has a nice slow buildup until the end of the film.
What advice would you give aspiring actors?
I would say take classes and hone yourself as an actor. It sounds funny but watch movies and Television. But don't just watch, study the film. Books are also a great way to hone yourself with different exercises that you can practice at home. Best of luck to all actors.
