The actor Jim High and I had a great conversation recently. Here are 8 insights carefully chosen from our interview from which you can hopefully drawn inspiration no matter who you are or what you do…

  1. I didn’t know I would always do this until I taught English in a summer school in London and a guy says, “Why don’t you just come out to school here?” [Prague] . I got to stay for a year, had a great year, really enjoyed it and ended up staying longer.
  2. I had done some student films. When I came out here I threw myself in with a lot of students, which was useful. The great thing about commercials was I got used to the chaos of the set, the hustle and bustle and the cameras.
  3. They were amazing! A real little unit together, very supportive of each other and just having fun with it and enjoying themselves.
  4. Really having fun… I can’t name a Jack Nicholson role where I think he’s not having the best time ever doing it. 
  5. I was involved in that very early on when they were just proposing it… Through people I knew from theatre who were working on it, they just brought me in.
  6. Find something you enjoy with it, make sure it’s something you’re passionate about.
  7. For most of the time, I’m working and then when I’m not working, I want to get my head together between shoots and staying in the zone, just chill.
  8. My parents and sisters. They just have that attitude to life and enjoying it and that helped me find things to being infused with the world as well, and having a love for it.
