Titus Makin Jr.
What did you want to become when you were a child?
I always wanted to be an olympic gymnast! many people don't know that I was a competitive gymnast for nine years. Things changed as I found music, dance, and acting.
How did your friends/family react when you told them you wanted to be an actor/dancer?
Everyone was extremely supportive. My older sister was already in the mindset and path of acting so they weren't to shocked when the desire passed on to me.
How long have you been dancing for, as well as acting?
Started dance in about eighth grade and acting, my senior year of high school.
What has been your greatest accomplishment so far:
-My greatest accomplishment has honestly been my relationship with God, and growing as a Christian. So many blessings have come thanks to Him. :)
Who inspires you in the industry?
A huge career inspiration to me has always been Will Smith.
What aspects of your job do you like best/least?
Best would be the relationships I get to build and the wonderful platform that comes along (in which) I may help people with. Least would definitely be the uncertainty of employment. One year you have an amazing job, and the next you very well could be struggling to get cast.
Describe your style in terms of fashion:
If you could combine TopMan, Urban Outfitters, and Zara into one store I feel that would fully describe my style. ha (those are my three favorite stores)
What makes you happy?
Things that make me happy are God, family, time with friends, and some solid California long boarding by the beach time.
What brings you the greatest satisfaction?
Watching someone realize how amazing God is. :)
What is your favourite song at the moment, and of all time?
Favorite song at the moment is "Can't Sleep Love" by Pentatonix or "Levels" by Nick Jonas. Favorite of all time is probably "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
What song will ALWAYS make you get up and dance?
"Shut Up And Dance" by Walk The Moon
What is your biggest guilty pleasure?
Biggest guilty pleasure is reality tv. I'm kind of a reality tv junkie. ha

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Any advice for those wanting to enter the entertainment industry?
