I find this very exciting and ultra-inspiring.
When I first moved to LA in the early '90s, I was a college graduate with a BA in Theatre. My ultimate goal was to act. That's been my lifelong dream ever since I can remember. Well, except for that one year I wanted to be a hairdresser. Oh, and a professional baseball player. I guess now it makes sense why my folks encouraged me to pursue acting.
Upon arriving to LA, I was acting right away, doing murder mystery dinner theater. I stumbled my way onto the set of Wings and charmed my way into the show as a regular extra. This is how I earned my SAG eligibility. And that's about the last we heard of the aspiring-actress-me.
What happened? I dunno. That's a process for another entry.
The reason I feel so inspired by Warren's actions?
Throughout the last ten years, I wondered what it would've been like to (formally) study things like psychology, directing/film making, teaching. But (aside from a class here and there, a few books and personal study), I never fully pursued any of it because I thought it was too late. [I'm too old. I can't afford it. I suck.]
So, to see an admired peer like Warren (who left a career in Law to pursue screenwriting), start in a whole 'nother adventure today, proves that anyone can do anything at any time! No matter what the outcome.
Acting, directing, teaching, screenwriting, producing ... We all know this is just a partial list of all the career possibilities that excite me.
Now if I could pick just one and stick with it for more than a month at a time.... Oh right, there's that. My interests change with the wind.
