We had the good fortune of connecting with Robert Shearn III and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Robert, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Taking risks is being out of your comfort zone. I had to do uncomfortable things in order to experience growth that I wanted. I put my all into it and stayed focused. When I look at the times I took big risks the end results were the biggest in my life/career.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
m a Model and Actor that likes versatility.
I’m most excited by being a Patient that’s a Nudist on TLC’s “My Feet Are Killing Me” season 1 episode 4. Also my scene is featured on “Celebrity Watch Party” episode 5 at https://www.fox.com/watch/
It was so overwhelming to see all the comments from the fans on Twitter and Instagram. As well as all the media attention in the USA and UK.
I got to where I am today by attending acting classes at an accredited acting School in Philadelphia at Walnut Street Theatre Acting School. I also had private advanced lessons and additional acting training under Actress Tasha Smith at TSAW. Afterward it’s been consistent hard work, dedication and pushing aside distractions to be more focused.
The journey hasn’t been easy but I overcame challenges by keeping a positive mindset, praying and not giving up.
The lesson I learned along the way is when you hear the word no replace it with the word next. Everybody dosnt have the vision to recognize your talents but someone else will.
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.
Shopping, dining out and site seeing at the Hollywood Sign, Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills.
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 want to dedicate my shout out to my #1 supporter Tyrone Clark because he deserves credit and recognition to my story.
Tyrone has been my #1 supporter since the beginning when I first started Modeling and Acting. He has been a big help assisting me with taking photos of me, videos, doing my costume makeup, accompanying me on auditions, attended photo and film shoots with me, attended networking events with me, attended fashion shows I was in, attending rehearsals and plays I was in, attending film premieres I was in, attended a pageant I was in, watched all my TV shows and movies.
Tyrone was casted as a Model/Actor with me for Prep medicine and HIV prevention at
I’ll never forget how excited Tyrone was the first time he saw me on TV as a Police Officer on TVOne “For My Man”.
Even when we had stopped talking at one period of time Tyrone said he would still support my Acting and Modeling.
Thank you for always being there through my journey Tyrone and not being a fairweather friend.
My Mother, Florence Legette deserves credit and recognition towards my Acting and Modeling Journey. Eventhough I became a Fatherless Child at the age of 14 my Mother was there to help me realize my artistic abilities that helped lead me to grow in the Arts. Wich brings me to where I am today.
Thanks for helping to shape my journey Mother.
