Actor Philip Boyd is a true Southern man and a gentleman He is known for playing the role of Oscar in Tyler Perry's “The Haves and Have nots” and has worked with incredible directors at Forest Whitaker, Damien Chazelle, and played the lead in several Christmas movies and romance movies. We worked together in the first film I ever produced, THE DRONE VIRUS, so this was a reunion chat with so much insight on taking chances in Hollywood.
In this Episode, Philip discusses his love for performing, packing up his car to move to LA from Atlanta, and how he landed an agent and acting jobs back in the days of headshot mailing and beepers.
We also talk about the power of human connection and how that belief paired with a little bit of magical serendipity got him cast in a Tyler Perry series.
This soul full actor also goes deep into how important it is to help your peers in Hollywood and coping with the sudden loss of his brother, with whom he owned a Sports Bar with.
Stay all the way through the end, for some incredible wisdom about the times we live in, the challenges of isolation, and a personal mantra that keeps him centered.
