IN THEO’S OWN WORDS:
"What attracts me to acting is that I can challenge myself, express my creativity, and discover parts of myself and the world through the role I choose to portray. I enjoy analyzing other people's behavior and learning new skills, and I love the feeling and complete immersion of becoming a specific and believable character.
I love the audience relating to the story and character and finding common ground; realizing that they're not alone and can dive into the world we create. Acting serves me as a form of expression of my own experience as well as an escape from it."
