Actors – It’s time to learn the art of persistence (VIDEO)

4 May

By Edward Randell and Elli Donajgrodzki

As you will know from our last post and live tweets, we went along to the UK Actors Tweetup on Wednesday evening (more to come from that soon!).

Whilst there we got chatting to Ajay Nayyar, an actor, producer and talent agent and owner of Khando Entertainment.

Ajay learnt to act in Hollywood after moving there in 2008, and has appeared in TV shows 24 and NCIS.  He came back to London in 2011 for medical treatment after suffering from a martial arts injury.

Having worked in Hollywood and London, he was happy to share his thoughts on how the the two industries differ, and had some interesting thoughts on how actors should approach casting agents – according to him, persistence is key.

Watch our interview with him here:

Do you agree with Ajay? Is it important to be persistent? Let us know below.
