I recently had the opportunity to exclusively interview Mercy Tiffany about five random facts about herself, what are her goals she hopes to achieve this year. Plus learning an interesting fact about Mercy Tiffany. Check out my interview with Mercy below:
Loryn: What advice do you have for those interested in going into the entertainment industry?
Mercy: My advice for anyone entering the entertainment industry is to have a support strong system. Having family, friends, and/or a mentor on your side to vent to or talk to can really make all the difference. Having a support system of people that are also pursuing or in the same entertainment industry is also particularly important. I would also advise to never stop perfecting your craft. Just like championship winning NBA players still go to practice and work out, in the entertainment industry, as actors, we too must continuously perfect our craft.
Loryn: What have you've learned about yourself during this pandemic?
Mercy: I have learned just how much drive and fight I have. The pandemic, for many of us, has brought on a plethora of emotions and changes. I learned that there is nothing that I cannot do once I set my mind to it. And that, having that, will really help push me to where I want to be in my career.
Loryn: If you could get a second chance at life, what would you do?
Mercy: I think that I would have moved to Los Angeles sooner. I would have been able to start my professional acting career so much sooner. It took me so many years to get to LA and I wish I would have been able to come sooner. Originally, I wanted to go college in LA but I stayed and went to college in my home state. I would definitely go back and change that if I could… even though I am grateful for the experiences and people I met at my Alma Mater.
Loryn: If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
Mercy: I really respect so many actors and actresses in the business that it is hard to choose just one. My top picks would be Samuel L. Jackson, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Angela Basset, and Viola Davis. I admire and respect each one of these actors for many different reasons. I know that I would learn so much from them that I could carry with me in my life and career. They are incredibly talented, and I would love to work with them and get to know them one day. I’m speaking it into existence!
Loryn: What's something people would be surprised to learn about you?
Mercy: I love to stay home and read. I will pick up a book before I watch television. I write books as well. I have three published on Amazon and I am hoping to write more in the near future.
