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

Hi Lewas, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
“Imagination and faith are the secrets of creation” by Neville Goddard is one of my favorite quote. When I look around I start to realize that this is truly true. A car, a career, a house and etc. one person had to imagine the concept at one point and had to use faith as fuel to bring it to fruition. This has truly help me to keep in a positive state of mind that anything in life is possible

.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a Actor that recently at of age of 37 I decided to gradually end my 25+ years in the Real Estate Industry to pursue my child hood dream of becoming a working Actor. Acting is and will forever be my passion. Coming from a Hispanic background of old school mentally of better to work 9-5 job than a dream job. I am the first in my family history to pursue a field in the arts. Im still in the process of become a full time Actor. One of the struggles have been the financial set back. But I can tell you that I reach a point that life is truly not life if you aren’t pursuing your dreams. I was dying in my desk at the Real Estate office. Yes commission checks where large but not large enough to motivate me to continue. I can tell you I’m truly Happy and Blissful pursuing my dream as an Actor.

So far in my journey i have learned to stay humble and appreciative for every Acting role you land. Never take for granted the ones who are constantly praying and supporting your journey.

What I would want the World to know is that I am a human being living the best version i can possibly be of my self. With true intention of being a good service by helping you escape from reality from time to time and Entertaining you.

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.
First place would be nee of my favorite spots The Magic Castle in Hollywood California. There we can enjoy dinner and one of the best magic show in the world. Next would be hanging out at the Improv where we can enjoy good laughter with good rounded comedians. Definitely have to hike to view the Hollywood sign. Next would take a nice trip to Malibu. Just hang out at the beach and enjoy the peace of the waves. Another stop would be Santa Monica pier for a little fun games and rides. and finally a nice stroll at the shops and car dealers near Rodeo Drive all for inspiration 🙂

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to give The Shoutout to Filmaker/Actor/Radio Host Tyrone Tann. He has shared with me his 20+ years of experience and knowledge in the Entertainment Industry. He has trusted me to help him with over 75+ red carpet interviews in the last 3 years. In addition he has invited me to Co-Host on his Radio Show. He has great deal of faith that if someone is consistent with any career including wanting to become a working Actor it will happen. He has seen close childhood friends even rise to A list status. Having a mentor/friend like Tyrone Tann has made a world of a difference in my journey to being a working Actor.
