Academy Newsletter Interview - March 2020

Doing 'make believe' for work is a major perk for 6-year old Actor Eli D. Goss from Boston. Read how he tackles fears like a champ -- from auditioning, to doing his own stunts.

I love all sports. I like to make people laugh and I try to be kind and a friend [to others] when I can. I’m also working on learning how to do my own stunts!!!! I love doing videos and different things on social media. I also like meeting friends from all over the world that are in the industry. 
My three favorite projects I have done were two short films and a commercial. I got to go to Maine for four days and play in the snow and break furniture and plates for one. That was so cool. For another I had to pretend I lost my dog. In the end I got to hold a REAL DOG!!!!! On my last commercial I had so much fun playing with the toy and I got to do my first voice over!!! That was so fun. I like that I get to play make believe. I also like to meet new people and make new friends. Some I talk to every day still!!!! I also think it’s so cool to see myself on T.V.

Networking Tip: When I’m in an audition, I go in, do my best, thank everyone, and that’s it. If I get the part -- great!!!! If not, then that’s ok too. But I’m always respectful.

On Overcoming Fears: I always say “ you do your best and forget the rest” . There’s no such thing as “my part”. Auditioning is so fun to me. If you focus on booking, then it’s scary. If you focus on just auditioning, then it’s super fun.
