Jason Dolley Interview (pg. 2)
Sindy: A lot of child stars have a really tough time finding success as adults. Do you worry at all about making the transition from a young actor to an adult actor?
Jason Dolley: I'm not too worried if it will work or not because God will provide. I do plan to go to college and get a degree - so if acting doesn't work out, I'll have something solid to fall back on.
Sindy: Do people treat you differently at school now that you're beginning to make a name for yourself as an actor?
Jason Dolley: When I first started on Complete Savages, I think people's interest in me was sparked a little bit - mainly the girls - but my closest friends just thought it was cool and it didn't really affect their view of me.
Sindy: So it's easier to pick up girls now?
Jason Dolley: They might take notice of you easier but you still gotta work your stuff. Some things never change.
Sindy: Is there anyone you'd really like to work with?
Jason Dolley: I have two answers for that - actor and director. My favorite actor is Liam Neeson. His performance in Batman Begins just blew me away. Also, the director I'd really love to work with is M. Night Shyamalan - Signs, Sixth Sense, all of those - they're such great mind thrillers. I love his style and I'd love to be part of one of his movies.
Sindy: What advice would you give to young people who want to get into acting?
Jason Dolley: Take classes. It's not as easy as it looks. Saving Shiloh was well worth it but it was tough. It's far from glamorous but if you really love it then it's a lot of fun. But it really is a lot of work - especially with school. I find I have to work a lot harder than I would if I wasn't an actor to keep up with school.
Sindy: Great advice. Thanks so much for talking to us, Jason.
Jason Dolley: Thank you. It was my pleasure.
