We recently had the chance to chat with “Black-ish” star Jack Dean. During the interview, Jack talked about getting his start in acting, working with Anthony Anderson on “Black-ish”, working on music, and more!
1. How did you get your start in acting?
I started in acting when I was 14 in Northern California in various acting classes to get ready to move to LA. I booked a web series and short film within the first month I moved and after that I just kept going!
2. What is your favorite part about the job?
My favorite part about being an actor is the feeling of being on set. There’s no better feeling than the time I worked on my first set of a film.
3. What is the most difficult thing for you?
The most difficult thing for me is balancing my time off with my music and working on acting.
4. What was your first project?
My first project was a lead in the film “Backlash.” I was 14 and it was the first film I auditioned for which happened to be a college student’s thesis film.
5. What was it like getting to work on “Black-ish”?
Working on “Black-ish” was a great experience for me. I’ve watched Anthony Anderson’s movies for longer than I can remember so meeting and getting to work with him was definitely a check off the bucket list.
6. What would your dream role be and why?
My dream role would be to star in a sports film. I grew up playing and watching sports with my family. Unfortunately, I had to stop playing a couple years ago due to arm problems. Being able to put together a couple of my favorite things and make a movie out of it would be a dream come true.
7. What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love working on music in my free time. Whether it’s writing or recording or filming music videos in my room with a camera and a green screen. It keeps me motivated and constantly bettering myself in something.
8. Do you have any goals for 2018?
My top two goals for 2018 are to book a feature film and shoot out of the country and have a song hit Billboard top 100.
9. Do you have any upcoming projects you can tell us about?
I have a few films in post production right now that will hopefully be going to festivals, but I amm currently working with 13 time Grammy winning producer Jared Lee Gosselin on a music project so keep an ear out for that.
10. What are your social media accounts?
You can find me on Instagram and Twitter both @iamjackdean and my snapchat is jackkdeann.
