How do you prepare for auditions? ~ StarsQA Team
Hi. Thanks for this question.
The way I prepare for auditions is to first review the sides, which is the section of the script I am sent. I read through the lines so that I a familiar with them. Then, my mom books a coaching session with my acting coach. We work through the scene together, discussing the character and his motivation during the scene. We talk about what is happening in the scene and then we begin running lines.
I like to memorize the lines before going in to casting. If the lines are long, I take them just a few at a time and then put them together.
Once I have the scene down, I think about what my character would wear.
And, I always go into an audition with a good attitude, remembering to breathe and have fun!
Hey Ian, who is your favourite avenger? Is it Captain America, or one of the others? ~ Hannah
Hi Hannah! My favorite avenger is definitely Captain America. I liked him best even before I booked the Kellog's commercial where I got to play him. Captain America is the coolest, in my book, and one of my favorite actors is Chris Evans. I really would love to be in a movie with him someday!! Thanks again for your great question. Have a super day!
Hi Ian. Do you do any training like stunts or gymnastics? I love your Kellogg's commercial.!!!! ~ Andre.
Hi Andre! Thanks for you comments about the Kellogg's commercial. It was a super-cool job to book and I really had a great time!
As far as your question, I train in stunts at Pali Adventures. They have a great summer camp where you can learn a variety of skills including stunts.
And, I am on a competitive gymnastics team where I live. I actually just won State Champion in my category of Tumbling and Trampoline. I'll be in Las Vegas soon, competing. :-)
Thanks again for your question. Have a great day!
Have you got any current/upcoming projects that you would like to tell us about? ~ StarsQA Team
Well, my Kellogg's / Marvel Avengers commercial, "Breakfast Heroes", was a real blast to do. I really liked playing Captain America. I am now auditioning for television shows and look forward to updating you soon!!
What is your favourite ice-cream flavour? ~ StarsQA Team
Vanilla. It's the best!
What is your favourite dinosaur? ~ StarsQA Team
T-Rex, for sure! He's big and bold and he's the scariest dino of them all.
Would you rather be able to talk to animals or read human minds? ~ StarsQA Team
I would rather be able to read human minds because that's much closer to having super hero power.
Would you rather be immortal and live forever or be mortal and live a normal life span? ~ StarsQA Team
I think I would rather live a normal life span because living forever might get old!
Ian, when did you know you wanted to be an actor?
~ Rosemund Boles
I knew that I wanted to be an actor when I began watching movies in theaters and saw the actors doing really cool things like jumping off of buildings or fighting off bad guys. Also, I really became inspired when I watched the Oscars and saw actors receiving awards for their work.
