I’ve consistently enjoyed acting and putting on period shows, but I used to freeze up when I got in front of a crowd.
I was perfectly good performing by myself, however being in front of a group of people was easily difficult.
I wanted to pursue a job in acting, but I couldn’t even manage to get my lines out in a High School production. When I was in university, 1 of my professors gave me a pre-rolled marijuana joint and told me to smoke it before the show started. I thought the guy was joking, although he was 100% serious. The small pre rolled marijuana joint tasted horrible, and I only took a couple of hits. After 30 minutes, I started to feel easily relaxed and my hands were tingling. I didn’t have any worry or fear and I wasn’t concerned about the audience at all. In fact, after smoking marijuana I really got more into character, then on the first night of the play, I performed amazingly well and I didn’t forget any of my lines. After the first night, I used a little bit of marijuana every time I was getting ready to go out on stage. I still do the same thing this week, and I star in a hit television series, but marijuana makes me feel more calm and relaxed and it helps me forget about the fact that millions of people are seeing me perform on stage. A lot of my fans guess I smoke marijuana because I care about to get together, however that couldn’t be further from the truth.
