In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to actor Matt Pascua about the various communities he has in his life and the support each of them provide.
On the cusp of Pride Month 2021 Matt talks about the important role the LGBTQ+ community has played in his life. We also discuss the theatre community and our own social community of friends/family.
As we start to emerge from this global pandemic we need to ensure we are giving ourselves grace and space while reconnecting with our own communities.
About Matt Pascua -
MATT PASCUA first discovered his passion for acting in New York, where he trained at the Neighborhood Playhouse, Stetson Studio, and the William Esper Studio.
He began performing in staged readings, new works off-off-Broadway, and regional productions. Simultaneously, he found opportunities in viral videos, primarily with CollegeHumor, as well as commercial, print, and voiceover work, including spots for MTV, VH1, and McDonald's and campaigns for Puma and the Meth Project.
Today, his growing resume now features primetime credits on ABC (Grey's Anatomy, Castle), Freeform (Bunheads), and Fox (Rosewood). He is an alum of the ABC Discovers Talent Showcase, which takes pride in Lupita Nyong’o, Chadwick Boseman, Randall Park, and many others as some of its previous selected artists.
His independent film work has seen nationwide theatrical release and the film festival circuit, most notably at the Cannes Film Festival (Anthony Meindl’s Where We Go From Here) and the Toronto International Film Festival (Jean-Marc Vallée’s Wild). Projects of his can currently be streamed on Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Netflix.
Matt is a grateful member of Actors’ Equity and SAG-AFTRA.
