“When it was my turn to introduce myself and act a bit, I was really nervous. But after I was done with my part, I loved it. I felt like a new part of me was born.”
Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at MAX Agency — a successful Toronto talent agency representing men, women and children.
This week we’ll be showcasing an intelligent and unique individual on our roster:
An introduction to Behkish:
“My name is Behkish. I’m originally Persian and moved to Canada 7 years ago to build my dreams and reach my goals.
I’m studying computer engineering at University of Waterloo and will graduate by end of April. My next plan is to continue my education to get a master’s degree.
Meanwhile, I’m working on my own startup technology company and hopefully you will hear more about it soon.”
How did you get into modelling/acting?
“As an engineering student, I did not have a lot of time to socialize and as an extroverted person, it was bothering me.
I also wanted to challenge myself and start something that I always wanted but was too shy to do and that’s how I got more serious about acting and modelling.
I remember a friend of mine wanted to start freelance photography and asked me to be his model and after doing that I loved it!!
That’s how I started to search for agencies and heard about MAX Agency.
So far, I love my experience. I got to meet a lot of great artists and get involved with a lot of new communities.“
How has your experience been with MAX?
“So far, I have had a great experience with MAX. I love the fact that they are honest and put effort to find the right auditions for me.
One of my memorable moments was the first day of the MAX Agency acting classes. I was really nervous and did not know what I should expect.
When it was my turn to introduce myself and act a bit, I was really nervous but after I was done with my part, I loved it. I felt like a new part of me was born.”
What do you like to do in your spare time?
“In my spare time, I like to write short stories, read about different subjects and hang out with my friends and family.
I also enjoy modeling for freelance photographers since I get to meet great people and share many ideas.“
What is your dream role?
“My dream role is actually to play myself in a movie about me.
But, beside that I like to play as a computer hacker because that is very similar to what I study at school.”
Best advice for someone looking to get into the industry?
“The best advice is to be yourself and do what you dream for and makes you happy. Don’t listen to others and do what your heart tells you.”
“I like to add 3 quotes that motivate me a lot:
1. Be your own hero
2. Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.
3. If you don’t build your dream someone will hire you to help build theirs.”
