Cade Shepard is an actor from Alabama. While he grew up with a normal southern life, playing football and baseball and working with his father, his love for movies brought him to Los Angeles. Prior to Los Angeles he was in Atlanta where he first started acting.
I am (use a max. of 3 words to describe yourself)… Focused, Driven & Honest
Acting is… being in the moment. Not overthinking and let it be what it is.
My last acting gig taught me… patience.
Proudest performance moment… being an extra in Captain America: Civil War. I love those movies so much that to be able to say I had a very very small part in one is a dream come true.
Most embarrassing audition… when my car broke down in front of the studio and the casting directors saw my car being towed as they were leaving.
Most challenging part... I haven’t had that part yet, so I would say living in LA.
The moment I knew I wanted to be an actor... I don’t think there was ever one specific moment. I’ve always loved movies and never grew out of it.
Dying to work with... something written and directed by Taylor Sheridan with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.
Was born to play... Tarzan.
Learn lines by... I record myself saying the opposite lines and then I talk to myself.
Get into character by... after I figure out who the character is, putting on the character’s clothes helps me switch, particularly the shoes.
Special skill I wouldn't put on my resume…
Movie I can’t stop talking about... The Breakfast Club
Top three Netflix / Amazon shows in my queue… Stranger Things, The Punisher and The Haunting of Hill House
Currently reading… IT - Stephen King
Car karaoke tune… Mary Jane’s Last Dance - Tom Petty
If I weren't an actor, I'd be... building stuff. Furniture, homes, sculptures or just whatever comes to mind.
Stranger Things character that best represents me… Steve Harrington
If they made a movie about my life, I’d be played by… Brenton Thwaites.
Actor crush… Naomi Scott
If I were a color, I'd be… Red.
Hotel alias… Johnny P.
LA spot that inspires or relaxes me… Simple, the beach.
The best advice I ever got… Work hard and be a man of your word.
