I recently had the opportunity to exclusively interview Malcolm Catwell to learn five random facts about himself and what inspired him to become a dancer. Check out my interview with Malcolm below:
Loryn: What inspired you to become a dancer?
Malcolm: I actually don’t consider myself a dancer. Dancers spend time and money in and out of studios, consistently training their bodies to move in more dynamic ways. I don’t do that. I don’t train and I haven’t seen the inside of a dance studio in years. So instead of being a dancer, I call myself an actor who can move (when needed). To that end, I was inspired in college. I was cast in my school’s spring musical (You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown) and fell completely in love with the process. When it was over, I found myself not wanting to really do or focus on anything else. I just wanted to do another show. The rest is history.
Loryn: What song do you currently have on repeat?
Malcolm: Have Mercy by Chloe Bailey. I cannot wait for her album to drop.
Loryn: What is a lesson the entertainment industry has taught you?
Malcolm: This may sound negative, but I’ve learned that people in the industry will only be interested in you for as long as you’re useful to them. Once you can no longer perform or be of service, you get tossed aside.
Loryn: How has the pandemic changed you?
Malcolm: I’ve become MUCH more in tune with myself and my needs. The pandemic forced me into isolation for quite some time, and during that period I learned more about myself than I thought possible.
Loryn: What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?
Malcolm: I’m conversationally fluent in German! I studied the language for 6 years throughout middle and high school and retained enough to not sound completely ignorant to a native.
