Five Questions with Jason Burkey

I met Jason a few years ago on the film set of “For the Glory.” He was the main movie star and I was the guy who stands next to the guy who runs the camera. Later on I saw him in the beautiful movie “October Baby“, where he plays the heroic boyfriend. He’s good actor, but it’s probably really easy for him because he’s just as sincere and friendly and humble in real life as he is on the big screen. 

1. Why are you an actor?

I love getting lost in a story and what better way to do that than be one of the characters? I enjoy the collaboration of filmmaking; constantly meeting and working with new people. Its adventurous being an actor and I’m an adventurous guy so it works for me.

2. How famous are you?

Haha I wouldn’t consider myself famous in the least. Actually, I think it’d be annoying to be really famous – I’m not sure I could handle it.

3. What’s “a day in the life” look like for you?

There is no typical day in my life haha. Everyday is different – if i’m working on a film then it consists of me waking up early, driving to set and jumping straight into wardrobe while memorizing lines. When I’m not working, I’m prepping auditions and driving to those!

4. What do you think about Jesus?

Jesus is a surprise. He continually surprises me with blessings and lessons in my life. I still can’t comprehend His love.

5. What’s the next year hold for you?

I just wrapped on a feature called A MATTER OF TIME with Shelley Long and Kevin Sorbo which should be released early 2013. I’m currently working on two indie features and have a couple more that are in festivals, one is called 10 COMMANDMENTS OF CHLOE and has already won multiple awards. I’m excited to see what the rest of the year holds!
