I really didn’t get a chance to use the skills I developed in college until I went onto reality TV and then had a lot of auditions and Rebecca’s film – so I felt pretty comfortable with my craft when the role came up ,” he explained.
In the Amazon Prime video, John plays the on-screen boyfriend to characterize Robby as he overcomes traumatic rape by an ex. “Philip kind of promotes the whole subject of self-discovery in film,” said John, who had just won Best Supporting Actor at the Vegas Movie Awards, of the role. “The film is really about resilience and finding a way to deal with the trauma we experience in life.
