Buddy Watkins – A: I was born in Valdosta, Georgia. I currently live in Alma, Georgia.
Q: Buddy you are known for your roles in films Orthus (2018), Sitters (2020) and The Encounter (2016), and for modeling for the NFL and Adidas. What do you love most about acting/modeling ( auditions, performing, premier, all of it) and what motivates you and inspires you to be the best at your profession?
Buddy Watkins – A: The thing I love about acting/modeling is that It is so challenging. There is literally a new challenge every time you step on set and it forces you out of your comfort zone. Once you are out of your comfort zone, you know you are growing as an actor. It motivates me because with film I have an opportunity to touch the lives of others.
Q: Do you have a top fav 3 selection of people in the industry ( filmmakers, producers, directors, actors ) you admire and that you want to work with with in the future ?
Buddy Watkins – A: Michael Bay, Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg.
Q: What kind of films do you usually go for and what roles do you most want to expand upon( drama, comedy, crime, action, a little bit of all)?
Buddy Watkins – A: I tend to be cast for military, cop, and sport roles most often. Rarely do I get the bad guy role. I like thrillers and movies where you have to think. I think it would be cool to play a character that pulls of the craziest heist ever seen on film.
Q: Do you have any new or recently finished projects you can share with us?
Buddy Watkins – A: Just finished shooting a movie in Georgia called American Siege. Starring Bruce Willis and Tim Murphy. We literally shot up and blew up everything all weekend.
Q: Can you tell us something we may not know about you? Any hobbies, passions or other secret talents you have and or like to do in your spare time ?
Buddy Watkins – A: I play about every sport out there. I stay pretty active in my everyday life. I own an Anytime Fitness in Douglas, Georgia. I consider this my day job and work there every day when I am not on set. Working out and staying active is a must for me. I enjoy playing guitar, spending time with my wife/family/dog, watching football, and anything outdoors.
