Actor & Singer, Paul Anthony The Legendary of Full Force
Finally, a long wait ends today! I got lucky to have got your time for this interview. Thank you Paul for taking time out of your busy schedule to chat with us.
CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHO IS PAUL ANTHONY IN YOUR OWN WORDS?
Sure no problem. Paul Anthony is a Legendary Grammy Award Certified, Health and Fitness Influencer, Forward-Moving Celebrated Cancer Champion. And just a NICE guy!
WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO BEGIN A CAREER AS AN ACTOR?
That credit goes to my Late Dad and Uncle Cito. They taught us early on that a singer IS an actor. It’ been in my life just as long as when I started singing professionally at 12 years old.
HAVE YOU PROGRESSED IN YOUR ACTING CAREER AS YOU HAVE EXPECTED?
Actually no. Since music is the primary force in my DNA, it selfishly intercepted my energy-focus. Now that has shifted.
DESCRIBE YOUR ACTING STYLE
It’s pretty much like my musical style, very diverse. What the role calls for is what I can and will bring to the project.
HOW MUCH HAS YOUR LIFE CHANGED AFTER GRAMMY AWARD?
Actually not too much because Full Force has Always been highly respected. It just shined a particular light on us that was overdue.
YOU ARE ALSO A CANCER SURVIVOR, HOW DID YOU REACT WHEN THE DOCTOR TOLD YOU THAT YOU HAD CANCER?
My first reaction was disbelief. 2 year life expectancy, incurable were the first words told to me by this renowned doctor. I’ve inspired Millions thru out my career in fitness, training and bodybuilding, so this caught me off guard. Then about 45 seconds after that, my exact words were:
I’M NOT CHANGIN’ S_ _ T!!
By that I meant my internal fortitude, my constitution, who I am and what I stand for. With that I looked at the Doctor and told him: “I’m different, I’m special. That doesn’t apply to me”.
THROUGHOUT THE TIME WHEN YOU WERE TOLD YOU HAVE CANCER, DURING TREATMENTS, TIME OFF WORK, CAN YOU TALK ABOUT SOME OF YOUR EXPERIENCES.
Oh that would take a WHOLE other interview. Lets just say, While I’ve always invested in “the mind-body and spirit” connection, I know what it’s like to Slow down and wait on ‘HIM’. The messages and the answers come to many that lean on “HIM” and stay the of course!
AND HOW MUCH HAS YOUR LIFE CHANGED AFTER CANCER?
Now I use the music and my journey to feed purpose which is to touch change and save lives, while having a damn good time in life, with a glad heart.
CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR NEXT PROJECT?
Oh there’s a few. On the acting side there’s a number of things in the works I’m not at liberty to mention just yet. Your just gonna have to follow follow follow me lol: @therealpaulanthony
