Judyth Piazza chats with Lorenzo Yearby, Actor
I started pursuing acting in July 05. Thirteen months later I`ve been a Day Performer in a Major Motion Picture (the Nerd in "ATL"(Warner Brothers). A lot of people thought I was going to become like the "Dead Body Guy" and become the "Fall Guy" in every film. However, I want to show even more of my talent then running and using my face for a brake pad. It`s nice that everybody laughs every time you appear on the screen but I want to give the audience more.
I landed a supporting role in another Full Feature Film "Family Curse"(Universal Pictures). Playing the character of Nail who is a Thug/Gangsta/Roughneck who doesn`t care for his Gang leader, Terry........etc. Due out Oct. 28, 2006
I also landed the lead role in "Testimony of St. Grey"(Dreaming Tree Films). Which was apart of the Annual Nationwide FreshFilms Competition.
A Feature extra in "The Gospel" and 2 other Indie films, and have done it all, without an agent. So if you want to do it, it can be done.
Some agents turned me down because I have yet to take acting classes, but yet I get more work then their clients, and it feels good when I know two of their clients are at the audition and I snatch the role from them.
