About the Show
The Love of Acting interview series is dedicated to bringing you inside the lives and minds of working actors, casting directors, directors, producers, acting coaches, agents, and anyone else able to shed light onto the acting craft. It differs from similar concepts you’ve encountered in a number of ways. First, these are conversations as much as interviews allowing the guests and the host to dive in rather Allen firing the questions away. Second, these conversations by their very nature take time so no quick hits here. Finally, while the scope remains constant there is no reliance on celebrity. You will find people here on all ends of the “fame” spectrum because everyone has a story and all stories are valued and welcome.
About the Host
Allen is a Chicago based actor and someone deeply passionate about the craft. Allen’s acting journey started in Ukraine where as a child he was convinced that acting was his life’s pursuit. Having immigrated at the age of 14 to the United States plans changed, he got “normal” jobs in IT/HR, did well but never felt whole. While continuing to take acting classes and landing his first role in 2013, acting remained an unrealized dream until his early 40’s. At which point he understood that if he doesn’t pursue it in whatever way his life as a working family man allows he would never feel truly himself.
Since that time he has appeared in close to 20 projects including shorts, indies, pilots, web-series, and commercials. Then in May of 2020 using the free time during COVID-19 pandemic, Allen started this show. He quickly found his footing and has had the chance to speak to many professionals about the craft they love. Allen is honored to have this opportunity to share his conversations with his viewers and to contribute in some way to making another person’s acting dreams come true.
