Calvin Benuto Chats With TMI About His Passion For Acting

Hey Calvin, so excited to be chatting with you! You knew you wanted to act since a young age. What is one movie that has greatly influenced your life?

A movie that has greatly influenced my life would have to be “the help” this movie was so well put together in all aspects, but it really taught me an Important lesson to never judge anyone based on any physical aspect, and treat everyone with mutual respect and dignity.

What has been your favorite acting role to date?

My favorite acting role to date would have to be “Mathias” from the modern noir series “Perpetual Grace,Ltd” which is lead by academy Award winner Ben Kingsley. It was such an awesome experience to share the screen with one of my favorite actors and to create so many new relationships with people from our set.

What would be your dream acting role?

My dream acting role would be a teen spy for some type of high Intelligence agency.

Is there anyone you are dying to work/collaborate with in your acting career?

There are many people I’d love to work with but if I had to pick one it would have to be Melissa McCarthy. She seems like a wonderful and kind hearted person but mostly funny, so If I can play her son one day im all in. 

Do you plan on working in the entertainment industry after highschool?

Yes I do, I plan to continue my career as an actor but also at some point I want to pursue some type of work behind cameras. Anywhere from writing,producing,cinematography or sound effects but I’m still deciding.

Do you have any projects in the works you can tell us about?

Right now due to certain circumstances I don’t have any project in the works, but we’re still hoping for a full season renewal with “Perpetual Grace,ltd.”

If you could have a gigantic billboard anywhere with anything on it — metaphorically speaking, getting a message out to millions or billions — what would it say and why? (If helpful, it can be someone else’s quote: Are there any quotes you think of often or live your life by?)

It would be a quote that I strongly live by which is “there’s only one race and it’s the human race” and that would be to spread the word of positivity and forget about judgment. 

What is an unusual habit or an absurd thing that you love?

A bad habit I happen to have is that I love traveling around LA and checking out cool places, but an absurd thing that many find impractical is that, I would love to be a transportation engineer for Metro Los Angeles. 

What is your current go-to song?

Wow…right now it would have to be “Dance Monkey” by Tones and I. 

What advice would you give to someone who wants to pursue a career in acting? What advice should they ignore?

Give it your all and being different is ok. The one advice to ignore would be that a successful acting career starts with a higher degree than high-school but it’s possible without. It all depends. 

When you feel overwhelmed or unfocused, or have lost your focus temporarily, what do you do? 

I love to go down to the beach, and walk along the shore and hear music, but when I can’t do that my earphones and music does the trick. 

What social media platform do you use most? Where can people find out what projects you have going on?

I use Instagram the most and is probably the only social media I really use but any up coming projects and announcements you can catch it on my IG page. 

Any last things you’d like to tell your supporters?

Spread positivity in the world, and when you can help someone go for it.

Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions 🙂
