Today we’d like to introduce you to Randy Perry.
Hi Randy, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
It all started at the age of seven. I would watch my mom pull together large-scale productions for the community and church. There was one stage play I witnessed in particular that had me hooked. It was something about the stage curtains, lights, mystery of it all that I just couldn’t shy away from. Ever since then, I have always had the passion to entertain. No matter if it was dancing at family reunions, talent shows and competitions, acting in church theater productions and more, I made sure to ENTERTAIN! And that was just the beginning.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It most definitely hasn’t been a smooth road. I didn’t come from a rich family so the opportunities for professional development in the arts were not presented to me at a young age. Up until a certain age, I would have to self-train. In 2018, my mother passed away from a Brian aneurysm, which was extremely devastating for me and almost unbearable. But just like my mother, I had to be resilient and continue to shine my light in my journey. Before my mother passed away she told me she had a dream about me being on the red carpet and it was to real. I believe that will happen one day.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’m all things entertainment. I can dance, act, & model. Primarily I’m an actor. I specialize in comedy and drama. I’ve appeared in commercials such as Jersey Mikes, Grubhub & Untuckit. I’ve had the opportunity to appear in other webseries as well as produce, direct and star in my own mini show on YouTube. I’ve also managed to create a large platform on Tiktok in under a year reaching 191K followers. The way I visualize art and my ability to conjure up ideas exactly how I want to create my projects, then the eagerness/ passion and not taking no for an answer, I believe sets me apart from others.
