• 53 min

This week’s guest on Brian Breaks Character, Migs Govea, has a ton of enviable credits: ​Recurring as Nick Vargas on CBS’s FBI: Most Wanted, Opposite Julia Garner (2x!) – Netflix series Inventing Anna and the Sundance hit The Assistant, Opposite Ed Norton in Motherless Brooklyn, Opposite Anne Hathaway & Helena Bonham Carter in Ocean’s 8, On Broadway in A Man for All Seasons with 2x Tony Award-Winner Frank Langella and Succession’s Emmy Award-Winner Jeremy Strong …and it would be reeeeeeeeally easy to say “Oh, look at him, he’s nothing like me, he’s got it made!” But then you’d miss out on the backstory of how he struggled to make each of those dream credits into incredible realities. Migs gives us a full backstage pass into his mindset and the ups-&-downs that brought him to move his successful NYC career across the country. So if you’ve EVER considered moving to Los Angeles (or ANY new acting market!) this episode is for you Here are just a few takeaways: There is never a perfect time to reach out to reps A target list is the worst strategy you can use to find the right match Let go of these 3 things you cannot control   You are enough – no matter how many credits you have! I just can't wait for you to see yourself in his story. ← you have hella more in common than you might think! Terminal Uniqueness is the belief that you are fundamentally different from everyone else and that you cannot possibly experience the same success as others cuz there’s no way it will work out for you. If that’s you, give this episode a listen and break the cycle of feeling left out of the big leagues. ← isn’t it like the World Series or something soon? (I don’t do sports, so lemme know).
