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

Hi Logan, why did you pursue a creative career?
Pursuing an artistic path seemed to be almost automatic through out my life. Growing up, I was lucky to be exposed to so many films and television shows, as well as an array of great music. I thank my parents for that. As I grew older, I always felt pulled to perform or entertain, and I enjoyed it. I trusted that through college, and now I couldn’t imagine creativity not oozing into practically everything throughout my everyday life.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Over the past three months, I have had over 50 very prominent auditions. These self tapes and zoom callbacks have been for films and shows I have watched all my life, new series, and scenes with A-listers I have dreamed of working with. A few have turned into a second audition, then a third, making me feel closer and closer. In the end, I actually just received word that a callback didn’t go my way, again. This constant battle has been tough recently, because the projects have been so exciting, but that’s the fight of an artist. Even though these opportunities didn’t turn into big results for me, they are getting me close. More importantly, they have given me an outlet as an artist to act. I’ve been able to create 50 new characters in just a few months. Bad guys, killers, crazy men, high school kids, camp counselors, lifeguards, president’s kids, vampires – it’s been everything. Recently, the fun of creating those worlds with every audition has reminded me how much I love acting.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my bestie was coming to LA, we’d do all the LA things. Hiking, acai bowls at Sunlife Organics, and lunch at Joan’s on Third. We’d also of course go to Malibu and drive down the PCH. Honestly, for a southern boy like me, just being in LA and looking up is enough.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I was thankful that I had such a community, a theatre community more specifically, during college. As most went to NYC, I came to LA, and that community seemed to dwindle. But now, especially post pandemic, seeing those people from SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design) post new sketches, photos, or videos, it reminds me how that community is always going to be in tact and supportive of one another. It’s so fun to watch people you have worked with creatively thrive or succeed in their field.
