Marc Zammit Interview By Scott McGlynn

British actor Marc Zammit has been inspiration to many people in the acting industry! 

Being in number of amazing Movies / TV

I sat down with Marc to find out his back story on how he became a successful actor, How he deals with Dyslexic, Bullying and His future features coming in 2017! 

355683_8232756

Scott McGlynn: Tell us 3 facts people may not know about you?

Marc Zammit: 

1. I’m Dyslexic
2. I love painting
3. I want to learn how to surf!

SM: You started acting from age 12! How was it growing up on stage / TV?

MZ: It’s been hard! Extremely hard I don’t think there is one day where I have not spent less than 2 hours a day on my acting since!

Everyday has been about it! But its an amazing journey, I learnt a lot about myself also as a person, also the strengths of self motivation, handling objections and rejection, self development, self confidence, how to better myself, how take in and absorb and take on board criticism,

I’ve just learnt so much as a person within myself as much as I have an actor.

 

SM: Do you think acting boost’s up your confidence?

MZ: 100% I’m dyslexic and I was bullied when I was younger, So my confidence was so so low!! It was a hard thing to over come, but I am so glad I’m dyslexic I like that fact I have to work harder.

Funny enough I was on set today for “Knight Of The Damned” and we was just going over some ADR with our lines, and I was asked if I wanted to read my lines from the script as it’s only sound no camera, and I said I could not read off script as it’s harder for me. 

I would struggle more so I was doing that off script, I’m grateful I was bullied, and rather than hate those or hold grudges to those who bullied me I thank them, Because I am so motivated because of that, The confidence that was damaged healed itself, I built up so much confidence because of my acting, I didn’t not just over come that I come with a’lot of ammo and shield.

 

SM: Your new movie “Pandorica” which you play “Ares” how did you get yourself prepared for this role? 

MZ: HAHA! I wanted to nail the accent so I watched all season of the “Vikings” within days barely any sleep.

Taking down notes, repeating after the characters acting like them, I had a whole script of notes, It’s hard to explain my notes! I took note of every word and sentence. I got a layout of how I want the character to be, Read a lot of articles and researched on tribes and tribal cultures, and combined them all into one really.

When I’m on set Tom Paton the director knew how I worked he told me to go off and soak into Ares, Everything about Marc had to be emptied out and I had to invite Ares in.

SM: I’ve personally known you for a while, I know each acting role you have to change your look etc, What’s been your most dramatic change? 

MZ: My most dramatic change I think we know that answer… My long hair!! Being used to having short hair for such a long time, It was a change!

It’s all about the roles / acting jobs I’ve had from playing, the business man, innocent looking lad, or normal general modern look to viking, alien, warrior, zombie killer, weasel, villain, surfer, and sci fi characters.

SM: What advice is someone reading this, Is looking to start out in acting world, TV, Film and Stage? 

MZ: I always say this in every interview every actors career is so so so different we all take different journeys, different routes, some go drama school some don’t, a job you get leads into another job, into another job into another job.

All I can say is find a path and just act, but if you are wanting to be a actor, just remember it doesn’t happen over night!!!

If you start acting come in with the mind set your not going to give up just because the universe hasn’t decided to give it to you when you want it.

 

SM: A perk to your job is that you get to travel the world, Where’s the most memorable place you been to and why? And do you get homesick? 

MZ: Well one place I am looking forward to filming is Brazil and Canada!!

I have landed a supporting lead in a feature film called “Zamo” It’s a beautiful script, When I was told I will be filming in Brazil and Canada my eyes nearly popped out of my head.

So i will say that will be on the card as most memorable place, To be honest every job I do in my career is memorable! Each one has special moments. 

 

SM: Who was your inspiration growing up? 

MZ: Tom hanks I am sure many people have figured this out by now!

Just love him as an actor a serious inspiration, also Antony Hopkins, as he’s also dyslexic every performance by him is just sublime. 

 

SM: Who are your favourite actor, actress and director? 

MZ: Actors – Tom Hanks & Antony Hopkins

Actress Kathy Bates

Directors Robert Zemeckis, John Hillcoat, Paul Greengrass & Elia Kazan

Composer Hans Zimmerman 

 

SM: What are your top 3 movies?

MZ: 

1. One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest (Jack Nicholson) 

2. What Is Eating Gilbert’s Grape (Johnny Depp & Leonardo DiCaprio)

3. Cast Away (Tom Hanks) 

 

SM: On you IMDb page we can see you have a busy 2016 / 2017, What are you currently filming?

ALL IMAGES USED IN THIS INTERVIEW I DONT OWN RIGHT TO.

Pandora Boxx Interview By Scott McGlynn

Exclusive interview with RuPaul’s Drag Race S2

Pandora Boxx, We talked about Experiences, Costumes, Donald Trump and MUCH MORE…  

unnamed

Scott McGlynn: Firstly I love your work and your performances! How did it all start off for you?

Pandora Boxx: I fell in love with drag from the first drag performance I ever saw, which happened to be Darienne Lake. I guess I was a little sheltered because I didn’t even know drag was something you could do! I had already been lip-syncing songs in my bedroom to Madonna. I was like sign me up!

 

SM: Most of us know your from RuPauls Drag Race season 2, How was the experience for you?

PB: It was definitely life changing. The show itself was a mixture of exciting, gruelling and fun. The shooting days are so long and you are cut off from the world. You live in this little bubble, like a high fashion prison.

 

SM: People may not no you auditioned twice before getting on the show, Was it a tough process?

PB: I got on the second time so I’ll say no. Ha! I just made sure I made a better audition video the second time around. I knew if I was going to get on, I’d be the plucky comic relief.

So I catered to that, There’s a lot of interviews and all that but it was exciting because at least I knew I was being considered. I walked on the set and everyone looked like a woman. All I could think is, oh good God, I’m the clown! Cue circus music, which I think they played when I walked on.

 

SM: Which outfit so far has been your favourite in your career? 

PB: It’s probably either my Race Car dress I wore to the reunion or my Bloody Mary dress I wore from my Absolute commercial.

Those are certainly the ones that get talked about the most. The Race Car dress was by Marco Marco and the Bloody Mary dress was by me.

unnamed-2

 

SM: You appeared on “Logo’s One Night Stand Up” Live show, How was that experience?

PB: I was petrified but really, really excited. I had never worked with any of the queens on there before but they were all fun to work with. Though, Bianca might not like you to know she’s nice. It was a great audience! I keep getting told it’s going to be coming out on DVD. We shall see!

 

SM: Do you suffer from nervous before TV / Performing, If so how do you prepare yourself?

PB: Yes. Every damn time. I was once told if you get nervous that’s good because it shows you care. Occasionally, I’ll have to take a mental breakdown moment, to prevent one from happening.

Or maybe a shot? I don’t like to rely too much on the booze though. It can become a crutch. That said, where’s the bar?

 

SM: Will you be bringing out new music in 2017?

PB: I have been working on a few things. One is a parody. I’m excited about it and hopefully people like it. I mean a song about an accidental poop is funny right?

 

SM: Tell me 3 facts about yourself?

PB: 

1. My middle drag name is Olivia so my initials are P.O. Boxx
2. I created a public access sketch comedy show called “The Gay (Means Happy) Show!” and you can still find some of the skits on YouTube.
3. I like peas and penis. Not at the same time.

 

SM: I interviewed Jinkx Monsoon not long ago, Over the seasons of “RuPauls Drag Race” anyone you would of loved to be on your year to work with?

PB: I don’t know. Probably not because I think our season had a great mix of queens. I wouldn’t have minded being on a later season with bigger budgets and more people watching though!

 

SM: Out of the celebrity judges they get to join the show, Who’s been your favourite?

PB: From my season having Kathy Griffin on was completely amazing! Plus she was funny.

We also had legendary Cloris Leachman and Debbie Reynolds (RIP) on and that was completely thrilling to be in front of them.

Henry Rollins did say I turned him on so there’s that! There’s been so many great judges, it’s hard to pick one.

 

SM: Lastly, What do you think of Trump being the new president? 

PB: BARF!!!
