We had the good fortune of connecting with Hutch Siegen and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Hutch, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
Just how much time and effort goes into auditioning. I spend a lot of time working on my auditions. I have been blessed to get a number of call backs and booked a few things this past year. I am really grateful for that. But you have to be really patient as well.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Being an actor has been a challenge, but I really like challenges! Being in this industry has really taught me how to work hard and have fun in the process.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My favorite place in the City is the Los Angeles Zoo. My mom has taken me and my sister there since we were in strollers. We just love it. I also love hanging out with my friends at Hurricane Harbor at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

I would start with breakfast at the Egg Plantation in Newhall, it has 101 omelettes and the best chicken strips and fries in southern California. We then would go to Hurricane Harbor to hang out in the wave pool and ride the awesome water slides!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My family. I would not be here without the love and support of my family. My parents help me every step of the way, from rehearsing scripts, to filming auditions. It is truly a labor of love. I also want to shout out to my cousin, Hunter Payton Mendoza. He is the one who got me started in this business. Following in his footsteps has been a great journey. My hope is to one day work together on a film!
