Interview with Houston Rhines (@houstonrhines)

huston....55

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I lived next door to a film student in college. I learned acting was a real thing from him and wanted to go after it. I was a late bloomer.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

I’m just a kid from Akron. The fact I get to be in movies and television amongst people I admired as a kid is by far the most interesting thing. This life is real and I’m really a part of it.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

Do what you want to do. Don’t do it for money or obligation. Do it because you are excited to do it. It’s the only way to produce good art anyway.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

My parents. My mom is the dreamer who always believed in whatever dream I had and would encourage me to go for it. My father is a hard worker so he would show me that you can’t get anything worthwhile without hard work.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

I rescue dogs. I love dogs. I want all the dogs. If there’s an image of an old cat lady then I want to eventually be the old dog man.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

“That which doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger”.

My friends were literally told I was dead after a horrible car accident. I had people come to check on me and were told I passed away. If it wasn’t for social media they would have never learned the truth.

I spent months in a wheelchair but now I’m back in action.
