You'll be in the first two episodes of the second season of Vindication - so for those uninitated, could you give us an idea what the show's about, and what can you tell us about your character?

 

Vindication is a faith based crime drama TV series on Amazon Prime and its trending at number one on Pureflix. I played the character of Officer Horne in episode 1 & 2 as a guest star. The job of the guest star is to take the plot and help move it along. Ironically, Iíve been chasing Vindication for the last three years. I actually auditioned for season one episode seven. I knew the power behind the series the first time I watched the pilot. I always knew in the back of my mind that this was something that I wanted to pursue. I love Jarod and the Vindication family.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much J.P. Edwards can we find in him?

 

You always bring yourself to the table when developing a character. So thereís a little J.P. Edwards in every character. I basically added some physicality that is not in my natural nature, for example, a mustache, etc. I also studied and watched a lot of police officers' demeanors and physicality to get into the mindset of this character.

 

I might be mistaken, but according to my information, Vindication is your first guest role on an ongoing TV-series - so how does guesting on an established TV show compare to making a movie where everyone's equally fresh to the material?

 

When it comes to making a movie versus a television series, the really awesome thing about this Vindication team is they made you feel completely welcome. Especially Jarod and the Vindication team. They are hands-down second to none. They have talent for days and they have the heart of a teddy bear. 

 

When it comes to developing roles for film, I love the character development process. You have freedom to be creative because your character isnít fully established until itís brought to life through acting. You have a lot of power and decision-making as an actor.

 

You're also going to be in a movie called Surge, starring opposite Cathy Podewell - anything you can tell us about that one yet?

 

So I just booked my first co-lead. I star in it with Cathy Podewell. Iím extremely stoked for this opportunity because Cathy Podewell is iconic. Iím in constant contact with the creator Hayden Newman. I donít want to reveal much more than this but I can tell you one thing, this character is going to be mind-blowing. Iím looking so forward to filming in October 2021.

 

Any other current and future film or TV projects you'd like to share - and as an actor in crazy times like ours, how do you keep working?

 

When this pandemic hit, there were two things I told myself. One, I wanted out of the restaurant business. Two, I was going to outwork everyone else, while also helping others continue their journey. I didnít want to fall into the trap of negativity that surrounded the world so I did everything in my power to inspire people to stay productive, set goals, chase them down and make them happen. That is the key to any business: work, preparation and timing. 

 

One project Iím really looking forward to his Washingtonís Armor. It is a time piece based on the story of George Washington developed into a miniseries. It films at the amazing Capernaum Studios outside of Dallas, Texas.

 

Let's switch gears for a bit: Your children's book Lightning Bug Lights has just won a Biba Award - now do talk about your book for a bit?

 


A bond between a father and his daughter is something magical. Lightning Bug Lights takes its readers on a beautiful journey while balancing a child's imagination with reality.This story is beautiful, the illustrations are magical; Lightning Bugs Lights will not only light up the hearts of its readers, but it will also light up their imaginations. I remember when I was younger, my grandfather would take us all out in his wagon and we go out and watch these mythical creatures light up the sky. Man what a magical experience it was. It means the world to me. I remember getting the first test print, and so many people graciously shared a post of themselves opening that book. Iíd be lying to you if I said I didnít have tears in my eyes. I was completely overwhelmed with emotions. It wouldnít be right to mention this book without giving a shout-out to my man Stemo, who is my partner in crime and my illustrator.

www.lightningbuglightsonline.com - thereís something magical about reading. Dream big... stay awake... and make it happen. #Tellyourstory #beexcellenttoeachother #jasonpaulllc

Anything else you're dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?

 

Thank you so much for this interview. It is greatly appreciated.

I just want to mention that Malign was a finalist and nominated for 18 awards.

Also, I want to mention that somehow by the grace of God, I found time to start book number two and also I am 15 pieces out from finishing my first feature film which will be titled Broken. I am working with my good pal EJ a.k.a. Elaine out of Miami, who is taking the lead on helping me write this project. Without the people that have been in my life for the last few years this journey wouldnít be possible. Without the support of my community and those around me my journey would die so I thank you all for the continued support and I look forward to 2021. 

This article wouldnít be complete without giving a few shout outs to name a few people who have not only inspired me but also helped influence my career path. Roni. ARG Studios in New York City. Kelly out of Vegas in the Film Factory, Risa, thank you for all the help on auditions. Adam, youíre always there man just to talk and guide. Jarod and the whole Vindication crew, Stemo Art and my agent Newton Agency. My family, friends, and my dog. And I also have to give thanks to the man upstairs because without him I am nothing.

 

Thanks for the interview!
