Which game were you really good at during your childhood?
Growing up I used to play soccer and I was not that good at it but any game that was physical, I was good.

2. How did you break into the industry?
I can’t say how but I was patiently waiting for my break while working hard on my performance…I guess it’s time.

3. What is acting?
Acting is reflecting the truth; to trigger emotions, raise questions, give answers to some of the questions and open discussions while entertaining at the same time.

4. Is there anything that you would give up acting for?
I gave up everything for this (Acting)…So there’s nothing.

5. Who and what are your acting inspirations and why?
Every performer who is killing every role… Every day events and ordinary people I see everyday and their life stories because that’s the only time I get to observe.

6. If you could change one thing about the acting industry what would it be?
I’d replace beauty with talent.

7. Television, Stage or Film?
This question is very tricky hey but this is like asking a parent; between his/her kids which one do they love the most…I choose to tell stories.

8. Three things you want to be remembered for?
 I wanna be remembered as a MAD man…Yeah a person who made a difference (MAD).
