I recently had the opportunity to interview Matt Catanzaro to learn five random facts about himself and what lessons he has from being in the entertainment industry. Check out my interview with Matt below:
Loryn: What lesson have you learned from being in the entertainment industry?
Matt: The main lesson I’ve learned from being in the industry is patience, unfortunately, actors have are usually waiting on the response from casting directors and it takes time to book roles, I’ve learned to do other things with my time while not acting, like make connections with people in the industry, and help my chances with acting by growing my social media following and build a small fan base.
Loryn: If you had a magic wand, what movie or tv show you'd love to be a part of?
Matt: This question excites me because there are a few, I think my past 11-year-old self, and the reason I became an actor, was the Percy Jackson movies and books, so the young me would have killed to be in those movies. The present me would love nothing more than to be in a show like Euphoria and my future dream that I want most would be in The Batman movie alongside Rob Pattinson, to play the role of Batman’s Robin, which would be a dream come true.
Loryn: Who is an actress or actor you'd love to collaborate with in the future?
Matt: The actor I want to collaborate with most would be Robert Pattinson, definitely my favorite actor, or another one of my favorites, Timothee Chalamet.
Loryn: What projects do you have in store for the rest of the year?
Matt: I have an independent movie that I will be in this year but filming dates aren’t confirmed yet, I can’t say too much about the film but it's very relevant to today in society and there are connections between the film to Netflix, so hopefully it will be able to be watched there. Other than that, continue auditions even though there have been fewer than normal, and continue social media and other business ventures nonacting related.
Loryn: What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?
Matt: Something that people would be surprised to learn about me is that I’m quite the hopeless romantic, I always listen to Ed Sheeran and really like romance movies.
