How did Akeem Mair Get Started in Acting?
Akeem Mair’s start in acting is funny because he didn’t want to be an actor at all. Actually he wanted to be a financial banker. He watched Michael Douglas in the movie called, “The Game,” and he was hooked. The 2000 BMW 740 i, the classy suits, and the stock exchange office. From his personal maid that lives with him in a fancy mansion, Akeem was convince to be financed banker. But one day while working at Ralph’s grocery store, a loyal customer changed his destiny. He was a cashier at Ralph’s when a customer he knew quite well was apparently in a sad mood. So he did his best to brighten up her day using his big positive personality that my customers loved so much. He remember saying, “hi it’s so good to see you again, I hope you found everything ok?” She said quietly, “yes thank you!” He told her, “usually I see you smiling but whatever you’re going through I know God will pull you out of it!” “ He’ll never give you anything you can’t handle!”
After the transaction Akeem said, “have a bless day, I hope to see you again!!” She stood there frozen for a minute and then finally looked at me. He could see the tears in her eyes when she replies, “Are you an actor?” He said, “No. Why do you ask?” She said, “Because you have this big positive energy. You move people by it. You lifted my spirits after I just lost my home in a foreclosure today.” Her words cut deep within him. After his shift, he rushed home and wondered, What would his life would look like if he became a successful Actor? Akeem thought about how he could help millions of people with his big personality the same way he helped her. It was that night Akeem knew he wanted to become an actor. He searched for how to get started in acting and it lead to him to Central Casting. And as they say, the rest is history!

Akeem felt like grit and resilience is in everything he does. How you must hold your head up in all your auditions.
