Alton Michael Mills is an aspiring actor; here is a link to his Model Mayhem page:

Q:  What made you interested in becoming an actor?
A: I changed high schools a lot, so I joined the drama club in an attempt to meet people. Ended up getting a role (lead) in a play that I had no idea I was even being considered for. The rest was destiny.

Q: What is your strangest work story?
A: Probably, the time I unknowingly submitted myself to a pornographic production. The guy calls me to thank me for my interest and to ask every uncomfortable question that he could think of. Yeah, that didn’t work out quite so well.

Q:  What personality characteristics make someone want to become an actor?
A: Great question, hm… I personally don’t think it’s anything particular. I think it chooses you, to be honest.

 Who was the best acting teacher you ever had?

A: My best acting teacher thus far has been life. You pull so many emotions from different experiences you’ve had, or people you’ve met, etc. Studying is always great, but If you’ve gone through enough in life, you’ll have enough to pull from for a truthful performance.

Q:  What kind of day jobs have you had?

A: I’ve worked as a food runner, a few retail jobs, etc. Spent most of my time at Panera Bread and Abercrombie & Fitch.

Q:  What do you like about Hollywood?
A: I’m from Michigan, so around this time of year I’m really enjoying the weather. I like the diversity, the restaurants, and there are a lot of opportunities to take advantage of.
Q:  What don’t you like about it?

The fact that it’s 2,000+ miles away from my family, It’s gets a little crowded, and just the cost of things. I could go to the movie theater in Michigan and pay $5-$9.50 to see a movie. Recently, I went to see a movie that was about $16. (Not including popcorn or anything)
Q:  How did you become SAG eligible?
A: I earned three background Taft-Hartley‘s working as an extra on SAG productions.
Q:  Who are some of your acting influences?
A: I’m a huge fan of James Dean. I also tend to gravitate towards movies starring Ryan Reynolds, Christian Bale, Mark Wahlberg, and Tom Hardy.
Q:  Where can we see you in action?
A: I have a couple of web series in the works that will be shooting soon, and just signed with an agent so I’ll be around. 😉 Check me out on all social media under “altonmchl.”
