“You don’t get into acting because it’s cool”. Angie Hung is the latest guest on the Second Act Actors podcast and she’s here to get real about what it takes to thrive as an actor. Join us as we talk loving your craft, what representation really looks like and how the Spice Girls inspire us to live our best lives.
Angie tells me about her corporate life and how she rediscovered her love of acting. She walks me through her auditioning process and how she feels about rejection now. We get into a great, in-depth discussion on representation in acting and in the workplace in general and Angie shares her perspective as an Asian LGBTQ+ woman who wants to see a more equal world for everyone. Listen out for her well-reasoned arguments on whether gay and straight actors should play roles that don’t align with their sexual orientation, which might surprise you.
This is a thought-provoking conversation about what it means to succeed as a Second Act Actor and carry your love of acting throughout your life. If you’d like to get more Second Act Actors episodes in your life, subscribe to the podcast to access the full back catalogue and all upcoming episodes.
