We had a reflective conversation with GERMAN MARCOS on his journey into acting. German grew up in Miami, Florida where he was a four-year varsity Letterman baseball player. He is charismatic, easy-going, and extremely athletic playing multiple sports throughout high school.
AC: As an actor, what are you still trying to learn?
GERMAN MARCOS: As an actor, I’m still trying to learn different languages to perform in. Honestly, every day I learn something new so not necessarily on the hunt to learn something.
When did you begin to see acting as a potential career avenue?
As soon as my baseball career ended due to an injury. I knew I was ready to pursue acting.
What was it like growing up in Miami?
Growing up in Miami was amazing. I loved it. Definitely met a lot of great people and made a lot of friends that became family. Miami will always have my heart.
Let’s talk about your career in baseball. Do you think athletes and actors share similar characteristics when they’re in game-mode?
I believe acting and baseball share similar characteristics. They’re both all about preparation and it translates to your performance behind the camera or on the field.
How important is social media to you right now?
I like social media but I believe its a big distraction. I try to stay off it as much as possible.
What do you want the world to look like in 10 years?
I just want everybody to be happy and everybody to be able to have a fair chance or opportunity to do whatever they want without any issues.
Everyone seems to have an app idea at the moment, what’s yours?
I’d say an app to be able to play pick-up basketball games.
If you had the chance to put something on billboards worldwide next week, what would it be or what would it say?
I’d definitely put something inspiring, maybe a quote. Or just a picture of me so that everybody can wonder why a random 23-year old’s face is on a billboard worldwide.
In-front of the camera. what is a fear you’d like to conquer?
The fear of trying to be perfect for every second.
What can you tell us about your upcoming projects?
Very, very excited for you guys to see what I’m working on…it’s gonna be so much fun. Expect the unexpected!
Aside from your upcoming projects, is there one thing you’re particularly excited about for the future?
Yeah, I’m very excited to be working with one of my favorite comedians…
