Interview with Actor Michael Emery

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

ED- The Eerie Digest is pleased to present Michael Emery a new actor to grace the realm of Television. Michael, what made you interested in acting as a career?

ME- Acting is more than a career to me. It’s a way of life. Acting gives me a chance to express myself through a different character’s personality and mannerisms. I was always the “class clown” growing up in school. I think I spent more time in the Principal’s office than in class, but that’s how I was. I enjoyed making people laugh. An actor’s job is to have an affect on an audience and to make them feel something when they leave the theater or when the television shows ends.

ED- Tell us of your years at Monmouth University and your studies at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

ME- First off, I was always an athlete and excelled in all sports from elementary school through high school. I played football at Monmouth University and loved every minute of it. Unfortunately, I got into some trouble outside of the school when I was 19 years old, which knocked me off my athletic track at the school. Acting put me on a positive path and gave me something to concentrate on.  All of my training and the foundation of my craft were built at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. The American Academy supplied me with the most intense and professional training that an actor can receive. The Academy has some wonderful teachers, but the one who I will always remember and still use the tools she gave me is Jackie Bartone. Jackie Bartone is a teacher who lives and breaths the acting craft and she passes it onto her students. She never let me settle for less than perfection and believed honesty is the actor’s “bench mark.” (more…)
