Bradley Bowen (BB): When I was on the set of "Grace" filming in my home town in March 2013 I was invited on set as an extra and I liked it; the people I met were creative, dedicated and hardworking. It wasn't until I became SAGE (February 2014) when I decided to go all out.

BN: Growing up, what kinds of media influenced you?

BB: The media that influenced me the most was music and books. Oingo Boingo, Talking Heads, Cult, Cure, alternative bands were my choice.

I remember my yellow Sony portable CD player. Children these days have no idea what it's like riding for hours in a car, looking out of the window. I also read a lot of self-help, motivational books, Dale Carnegie and Napoleon Hill. 

BN: How did you go about finding places to perform?

BB: I performed on the waves as a surfer and on the mat as a martial arts competitor. As an actor, I started on any set I could find by researching, networking and listening. I would position myself to hear the information I needed. It’s amazing how much one can learn by keeping their mouth closed and their ears open. 

BN: So far, how many projects have you been involved with?

BB: I have been involved in over thirty films and television projects. My favorite is "Out for Vengeance” because it was filmed in Europe and it was my first time playing a supporting role as Viktor Romanov, which is my largest role to date. I was able to co-produce the project as well which was an excellent education and experience. Not only this, I had the opportunity to work with an International cast and crew of highly dedicated and motivated individuals, making friends along the way.

 

Upcoming 

BN: What would be your “dream project”?

BB: My dream project would be to develop a learning environment for children who are not excelling in an institutional setting. Providing them tools, support and with opportunities to achieve their goals.   

BN: To date, what has been the most rewarding part of being in the entertainment industry?

BB: I would say, being able to express myself as an individual, working with creative and like-minded people.

Traveling, meeting friends and filming, it just doesn't get any better than this.

BN: What advice would you give to someone who is aspiring to become an entertainer?

BB: Dream, imagine and believe. Invest in your talents and yourself. Don't get stuck in corporate because it robs your time, freedom and health. Instead inspire, create and use your time wisely, the money will follow.      

BN: Are there any upcoming projects and/or events that you would like to mention?

BB: Yes, currently I'm producing a feature film called "The Flight". The movie starts out as an old-fashioned spy thriller but then elevates to a monumental narrative of the Jewish psyche in the period before the war broke out and when the Nazis began driving them to the camps for the eventual Holocaust. The project is headed by writer and director Mohy Quandour. We will be filming it in Romania and Bulgaria.
