We had the good fortune of connecting with Martyn Hale and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Martyn, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I pursued being an actor at a young age. Having no family in the business has made it extremely difficult. I decided to be an actor because it was a way for me to be someone else. I enjoy transformations and being a good actor One must learn to do so for each role. Every role is different.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
It’s not easy but I love auditioning and I love the process of hunting for my next acting gig. I am fully aware of the statistics of being an actor. The thing is People love to watch me. I have been blessed with booking jobs from Nike/Footlocker , Mattel , College Humor , and over ten movies one of my favorites is called Coldwater. October 2019 I booked a social media photo shoot ad for Facebook with OCULUS the 3D virtual gaming headset which we shot in Chicago. I was recently struggling in life and considered giving up. Then I booked The Oculus shoot which sparked my flame 🔥 I have learned in life that not everything is going to go the way you want it to go and you have to learn how to accept it and move forward. Stay positive and don’t stop grinding. Life is short so do what makes you happy and be the best you possibly can. Anything is possible and I believe in Me.
I have a movie coming out this year, distribution by Amazon. I have a small role, cameo appearance. The film is called Canaan Land.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would probably have to say let’s go to chipotle or Buffalo Wild Wings. Then let’s go finish dinner with some ice cream 🍨 and a nice walk
