Gregory Smith Interview (pg. 2)
Sindy: You seem to have a lot of projects on the horizon. Can you tell me about some of them?
Gregory Smith: Well I just did a film with (director) Richard Attenborough called Closing the Ring, which was the experience of a lifetime. I also did a voice for this animated movie called Edison and Leo, which was so much fun. I'm really looking forward to seeing what it's like when it's finished.
Sindy: You've got dual US and Canadian citizenship. Where do you spend your time?
Gregory Smith: I was born and raised in Canada and then moved to the US for work when I was 11, but Canada is home. I try to take jobs up there as much as possible so I can get home to see friends.
Sindy: Here's the ultimate loyalty test: who do you cheer for in World Cup Hockey?
Gregory Smith: Oh Canada, definitely. I'm not a huge hockey fan though, I'm more into soccer.
Sindy: So how did you get into acting in the first place?
Gregory Smith: My mom was looking for something to do with me and my brother and so she's the one who got us started. I got a Tide detergent commercial when I was 14 months old. Obviously, I don't remember anything about it.
Sindy: What would you be doing if you weren't acting now?
Gregory Smith: That's a scary thing to think about! Um, I'm really into photography so I'd probably be bumming around the world looking for a good story to shoot.
Sindy: What advice would you give to young people who are looking to break into the entertainment business?
Gregory Smith: Probably the same advice my mom gave me, which is to always keep an eye on your goal. I think a lot of people in this industry can lose their way because they forget what they're actually trying to achieve, so remember to keep your eye on the prize.
