Interview with Will Thompson (@itstherealwill)


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

I love to entertain people and the fact that I can be anything I want to be is what brought me down this career path. I love to escape in the minds of the characters and see what makes people react to choices that are involving them in situations. 

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

I started out doing some extra work and on the set of the Dilemma, I saw Vince Vaughn he walked on set signing so I joined him even though we were told not to talk to the stars I couldn’t resist. I never booked extra work with that extra casting agency again. 

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

Keep pushing.

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? 

No one helped me along the way I did what I wanted and felt the worse that could happen was to be told no.

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

I give back to my community and I also create my own films now to where I bring in new talent looking for acting gigs.

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

The world meets nobody halfway.
