Street Cred talked to Actor, Director and Producer, Marc Zammit about his career and what the future holds.
FIRSTLY, FOR OUR READERS SAKE TELL ME A LITTLE BACK GROUND INFORMATION ON YOU?
Well I was raised in Bethnal Green, I’ve always been known as the cheeky, funny type around the area when I was younger, pretty much done every job under the sun, from fixing cars, stacking hair shampoo, waiter at a bar, telesales you name it I’ve probably done it. But being an actor, obviously you need to put your food on your plate when times go quiet. Since I got into to TV and film things have just started building up. And yeah I haven’t needed to stack hair shampoo since basically, thank god ha!
YOU’VE GOT A LOT OF STUFF UPCOMING IN PIPELINE WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR EVERYONE TO SEE?
At the minute I’m producing my first feature film with my business partner Jamie Mcleod-Ross, which is pretty cool. The film is called First to Thirty and that’s our baby. And that’s a romantic comedy. So 100% that! I’m also looking forward to Life Outside because I got announced to play a character that’s pretty cool which is a great script, great cast the director Martin Jay Thomas is such a great guy as well. Built a good relationship with him, so obviously me and Jamie would be working a lot with him. And for people to see the film because I know it’s going to be a great film.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN ACTING FOR?
I’ve been acting for about… ah makes me feel old saying this ha, but around 11 years now I think it’s 11-12 years.
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO PURSUE A CAREER AS AN ACTOR?
Well I started doing a monologue of Macbeth ever since I was born because of my mother, nah I’m only joking haha. I was always keen to entertain people from the age of 6 I always wanted to be an actor and be on TV. Because I loved the films. I will always remember saying to my mom because the news was on, and they was speaking about someone who had recently passed on. And I said to her “Do I have to die to go on TV?” And my mom was like “No don’t be silly!”, amd my parents kind of described me how the system works and how to be an actor and how to get into TV and what it’s all about. Then I just kind of perused it from there.
