Our talented young client, George Dalton, plays the role of Arty, a deejay at Camp Firewood in the hit Netflix series,Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. George describes his character as “funny, crazy, outgoing and weird.” He co-stars alongside an impressive cast that includes Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Banks, David Hyde Pierce and Christopher Meloni.
George advises youngsters with the acting bug to take acting classes and get involved in community theater productions.
“Take as many classes as you can, including voice lessons, and go to your local theater and audition, audition, audition. You’ll get a callback or you won’t, but one day you’re most likely be on a stage or in a film.”
“My advice would be to live your dream and go right towards it. Try your hardest.”
But when you do get a role you’re excited about, like playing a deejay in “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,” it’s OK to go a little crazy, he says.
