Jake Kidwell was born in the little town of Alexandria, Kentucky. He went to Northern Kentucky University, where he majored in Business Management and minored in Business Administration. His journey on becoming a CEO got diverted when he started taking acting classes. Jake soon fell in love with the challenges and risks he had to take to become an actor. Coming from a small town, wonderful family, and a tight knit community, he knew that his passion was going to take him away from his humble home. In January 2015, he embarked on his journey alone to LA and set his sights on strengthening his craft as an actor.
We asked Jake a few questions so that you could get to know him better...
Who are your biggest inspirations as actors?
My biggest inspirations are Tom Hardy, Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves, and Matthew McConaughey. I admire Mr. Carrey, because he didn't take the safe choice on getting a steady job. He took a risk to follow what he loved and succeed at it. Keanu Reeves is another favorite of mine, solely by the fact that he has been through so many hardships. Yet he has the perseverance to keep pushing forward for his overall passion.
What are some of your favorite books?
My favorite books growing up would have to be the "Artemis Fowl" series, "Lord of the Rings",and of course "Harry Potter". Nothing much has changed because, I am currently reading "The Game of Thrones" series. Once I finish that I want to jump into "Walden and Civil Disobedience."
Who is your favorite superhero?
My favorite superhero would have to be Green Lantern. For the basis that he is chosen by his good-hearted will. Because where I come from, were taught being kind to someone doesn't cost a thing.
