Today we’d like to introduce you to Neil Angevine.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Neil. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I’m originally from St. Louis Missouri. I grew up with the typical midwest lifestyle. Playing sports in a suburban area and no idea of Hollywood or movies. I was obsessed with movies as a kid and it continued to grow from there. I went to University of Missouri getting my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree and halfway through decided I wanted to be an actor.
I spent the last two years of college traveling to Chicago, Kansas City, and St. Louis for auditions while full-time at school. I graduated May 2018 and decided to move to LA to pursue this dream while never actually visiting LA. I’ve been in LA for almost two years seeing success in acting and stunts and have never looked back!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Finding the right community and people that support you is key. Having an open mind and saying yes. It’s easy to always look forward to the next best thing or think you aren’t where you want to be but reflection and self-care has been a major priority since I’ve moved out here. Any obstacle or resistance you feel is most likely in your head and just by getting yourself to do the work breaks that mental barrier. Overall it’s been a fairly smooth road but you have to be willing to do what others won’t and change to get the results you want.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I’m an action actor. I combine fight choreography with dialogue for TV and film. I have had roles on Schooled, How to Get Away with Murder, 13 Reasons Why, and did the play: The Man Who Came to Dinner. When I’m not acting I put my attention to building my fitness business.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite childhood memory is going to my cousin’s house growing up. He had a ranch style house with a pool, huge backyard into the woods, fire pit and totem pole. It was like Neverland from Peter Pan every time we went. We would explore outdoors and watch movies non stop.
