Interview with Actor, Model & Musician Cody M Key
HEY CODY, WELCOME TO ABOUT INSIDER! CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHO IS CODY M KEY IN YOUR OWN WORDS?
I am a typical teen who loves acting and video games. I am someone who gives it everything I have. I think I am passionate, devoted and motivated.
HOW AND WHEN EXACTLY DID YOU REALIZE YOU HAD THE PASSION FOR ACTING?
At an early age I was the class clown, or the kid who would volunteer for the school plays. I loved being in front of an audience singing or dancing. So many of my pictures as a kid I am in a costume being some super hero or villian. I started in the entertainment industry at 4 after I told my family I wanted to be on tv.
WHAT’S CHALLENGING ABOUT BRINGING A SCRIPT TO LIFE?
A big challenge bringing a character to life is giving the character the justice he deserves. I always want to play a character and be proud of how I did it. Sometimes, you can read lines and you cant get a feel for who this kid is, how he thinks or feels so sometimes it can be hard to find the right emotion to bring with the words.
WHO ARE YOUR BIGGEST INFLUENCES?
Definitely my family. They have been so supportive and given me the confidence to do what I love. I also admire Robert Downey Jr because his grit and character off screen is as amazing as he is on screen.
HOW IMPORTANT IS DEVELOPING A PERSONAL STYLE WHEN IT COMES TO ACTING?
You gotta be you. When you walk into an audition its 50% about the lines and 50% about who you are. You gotta be you and own the room you are in.
OUT OF SO MANY ROLES THAT YOU HAVE PERFORMED AS AN ACTOR, WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVOURITE AND WHY?
My favorite was working on this commercial for this new innovative app that is being produced. It helps motivate athletes to believe in themselves as well as showing techniques to be the best. It is also backed by Patrick Mahomes.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU?
I just finished working on a role in a short with Dhar Mann Studios, which is a huge YouTube channel with millions of views. Its about teaching life lessons through acting.
HOW CAN YOUR FANS INTERACT WITH YOU ONLINE?
I am very active on Instagram @codymkey and I just started my own TikTok @codymkey
