We had the good fortune of connecting with Terrance Sims and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Terrance, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
Man where to begin….Well I’ve been pursuing acting for over 9 years now and I’ve been through it all. Financially, emotionally, and physically. It’s been times I really wanted to give up but my faith in God and family kept pushing me. I love them all dearly and can’t wait to show them what all my hard work has been doing.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Becoming a actor was my best decision ever. I love the craft and who I become when tapping into a character. I’m proud of my numerous tv and film credits I’ve accumulated over the years. It took a lot to get to where I’m at now. Long nights, early mornings. Intensive acting classes. Going broke trying to fund this career. Hell No this journey was not easy. You tend to worry a lot when you’re not certain about your future in this business. The chatter gets loud of people telling you to just give up and find a “steady job”. And you start second guessing. But don’t listen to anyone telling you about YOUR dreams. Keep going. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel! Having a strong support system is the key to this journey. Without them Terrance Sims wouldn’t be in this industry. I can’t wait for the world to remember the name and I become a household name.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate my shoutout to my family and friends. Without them I would had been given up. From them taking me to auditions and TV sets to film. And for blessing me financially because Lord knows this business is not cheap.
