“How do you know who sees you for who you really are?” Jason Quinn: Actor
Born and raised in small-town Missouri, Jason packed up his dreams and a few belongings to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career as an actor. His passion for acting lead him to train at Trident Arts, one of the top studios in Los Angeles for method actors. He’s appeared on television in a number of co-star roles, but is most proud of his work in independent film. Jason is currently in rehearsals for the movement theater piece Trouble of the World, directed by Nathaniel Quinn. “More details coming soon.” https://www.nq-f.com/2018/07/23/j_3/
If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master; If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’ If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
If by Rudyard Kipling
PC: Alexis Rhone Fancher
My lifestyle is pretty much the same as it's always been. I'm an actor. Those people who say success went to my head, they make me sick. I'd been down and out with nothing so long.
An associate readily agreed with his friend's lifestyle analysis, and maintained that its origins were only too obvious: 'Al had such a lousy early life. There were such fears, he was such a drifter before he began acting professionally, and such an utter failure, that I think he's afraid that if he expands himself, it will be all just deflate, vanish, and everything good that's happened to him will only seem like an illusion. The way he was brought up, the way he lived, he could easily have become a basket case. The fact that he didn't is a miracle.
