Q: Where are you originally from and where are you based now?
Tyler Covington – A: I am originally from Chattanooga, Tn where some of my favorite artists are from such as Samuel L Jackson and Dennis Haskins. I am currently based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Q: Tyler, you are rising in the industry and most known for your roles in ‘Purse’ and ‘DayShift’! What motivates you and inspires you to be the best at your profession in acting and do you have a top 3 favorite actors, filmmakers or directors that you want to work with in the business?
Tyler Covington – A: What motivates me the most is waking up every day with a challenge of becoming a better artist, owning my craft. Artists that are closer to me personally and that are my heroes are the ones who inspire me to keep achieving something greater in the industry and for my journey. My top 3 actors. Leo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone. I write it in the stars now I will work with all three of these special artists. I claim it now. My top 3 directors: Quentin Tarantino, James Cameron, Steven Spielberg. That’s a hell of a 1-2-3 punch, right?
Q: As an actor, What would you say is your fav genre in roles you play (Drama, Comedy, Action, Thriller, a little bit of all)?
Tyler Covington – A:After filming Purse with Eric Roberts, I realized how much I love acting in a thriller. I always saw myself in a Jonah Hill comedy, which I still want to accomplish, but my essence plays well in “edge of your seat” film. Overall, I’m honored to bring my one-of-a kind package to any genre and show the world my artistry. I definitely wouldn’t turn down an action full whoop ass with The Rock, I’d bring a six pack of it and show his candy ass who I am (Jk he’d kill me). Working DayShift with Jamie Foxx and Snoop Dogg is just a glimpse of the kind of projects I see starring in my future.
Q: Can you share with us something people may not know about you? Any hobbies or other secret talents you have and or like to do in your spare time?
Tyler Covington – A:I am an avid powerlifter and love the fitness world. I have my own product line of BBQ sauces, I am a bit of a foodie if you can’t tell by looking at the size of my arms haha. BBQ and weights are my jam. I love to spend time with my family, wife and four daughters at home. I travel alot when I can to the Caribbean, baseball and college football fans. Roll Tide!
Q: What are some projects that you’ve just wrapped up recently or that you’re currently working on now?
