Meet Kastin Lewis

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kastin Lewis.

Kastin, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I’m from Inglewood, California/Baltimore, Maryland. I was born in Inglewood, CA and lived there for a little while and moved to Baltimore, Maryland for a while and then I came back to California for 1st grade. My dad is from Baltimore, Maryland that’s why I was out there to visit other family members. My dad passed away July 19, 2015. My dad always told me to follow my dreams and that I’m going to be a big star and I truly believe that.

I’m an Actress, Model, Influencer, Tarot Lover, Creator, and Writer. Growing up, I’ve always been hardworking, creative, passionate about what I want to do in life. I can never settle for one career. I dream big. I love laughing and being positive. I’ve been acting since I was younger. I was a theatre girl. Always in school plays. Recently last year I signed with my agent and ended up booking a commercial with FORD which is showing worldwide currently. One of my ultimate goals is to act in movies, tv shows, and of course more commercials. As for modeling and tarot those are just hobbies of mine. I love going to amusement parks, movies, and hanging out with friends and family.

My favorite singer is Beyonce. I just love how hardworking she is and how she’s motivated by working hard to follow her dreams and doing what she loves which really inspires me. Some of my favorite actress and actors are Regina Hall, Zoe Saldana, Angelina Jolie, Marlon Wayans, Damon Wayans, Idris Elba, and many more. I’m inspired by their work ethic as an actress/actor.

Just stay tuned to see me on the BIG SCREENS 🙂

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I’m an actress.

I chose this career path because I’ve always wanted to be an actress since I was younger and also because like the challenge. I love the fact that you go to an audition and you don’t know if you’re going to get booked or not. I love getting new auditions and seeing the new character I get to play and audition for.

The stereotype of a starving artist scares away many potentially talented artists from pursuing art – any advice or thoughts about how to deal with the financial concerns an aspiring artist might be concerned about?
A message to inspiring and upcoming actors and actresses is “Don’t give up! and Follow your dreams and goals in life.” I had someone ask me before “Why acting?” and you know what my answer was… WHY NOT! IT’S FUN AND I LOVE HAVING FUN. After I said that to them they said “That’s not a good enough reason.” After they told me that I was really shut down and started questioning myself until I told my private acting coach what happened and she was like “I love that you love having fun because that’s what it’s all about. Basically what I’m trying to say is do whatever you want especially if it makes you happy. You don’t ever need to explain to anyone of why you want to be this or that. I do acting because I enjoy having fun, being on set, getting glammed, and the FOOD! I love it. So yes, do what you want to do and don’t ever let anyone tell you what you can and can not do because at the end of the day these people in the world aren’t KASTIN THE GEM!

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
You can follow me on Instagram: @KastinTheGem. I post a lot on my Instagram so everyone can keep up with me and my acting career path. Also, I’m an influencer so you can see all my fashion post and also my commercial and other jobs I’ve booked.
