Eddie Tyclus Robinson is a military brat, pop culture lover and sunglasses junkie. He’s appeared in Lone Star, directed by John Sayles, various other television shows and feature films, as well as Off-Broadway with the New Federal Theatre.
I am (use a max. of 3 words to describe yourself)… Imaginative, funny and daring.
My last acting gig taught me… How much fictional characters can impact the real lives of viewers.
Proudest performance moment… Becoming one of the “success stories” from my Children’s Theatre group in DC years ago.
Most embarrassing audition… When I first started as a child, my mom dropped me off for an audition the day before it was scheduled. It was obviously not my session.
Most challenging part… A play I did Off-Broadway called Defending the Light with the New Federal Theatre, where I played a historic victim of abuse and went from before and after the tragedy in front of the audience.
The moment I knew I wanted to be an actor... At a recital when I was a kid. I had a feature, the audience applauded and I was, of course, hooked.
If I weren't an actor, I'd be... a host/news correspondent, writer for film and television, or a visual/performance artist.
Dying to work with... The creative teams of Shonda Rhimes and Jill Solloway among others.
Was born to play... James Baldwin.
Learn lines by... Repetition and tying to memorize the character’s experience that brings the words out.
Get into character by... Listening to music that helps put me in the mindset of the character.
Acting is… one of the times when I’m happiest.
Special skill I wouldn't put on my resume… I can probably give a historic rundown of pop culture based on the year.
Movie I can’t stop talking about... Right now it’s Get Out.
Top three Netflix / Amazon shows in my queue… Master of None, Ozark and Insecure.
Currently reading… Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened”
Car karaoke tune... Animal by Pearl Jam
Star Wars character that best represents me... Lando Calrissian, of course.
If they made a movie about my life, I’d be played by… Donald Glover, Taye Diggs or Titus Burgess. Let’s go with all three.
Actor crush... Edward Norton in Primal Fear.
If I were a color, I'd be… Green.
Hotel alias… Prince Rogers Nelson
LA spot that inspires or relaxes me… I just tried Float Lab in Westwood and that was a great experience.
The best advice I ever got… Just be yourself.
You can find me at… On social media @eddietyclus or through Richard Kerner at KMA.
