Toronto Acting Agency- Max Agency- Talent spotlight- Mother and Son Duo Daphne and Isaiah P.

Our Talent Spotlight of the day is Mother-Son duo, Daphne and Isaiah Paul, who are both Max Agency actors and models!

Daphne was born and raised in Toronto, and  has a fraternal twin! Growing up, she has always been silly, goofy, and a fan of all movie genres. She has worked in other industries until the day she picked up a camera and wanted to create. 

 

She is a self-taught photographer! She even started her own business called Noanah portraits but kept looking for her calling. Daphne started doing background extras work on the side, which made her very happy!

She loved seeing the inner workings of movies and TV shows. “I never imagined I would find myself in front of the camera but now that I have, I cannot see myself anywhere else. “

Daphne got into modeling and acting thanks to her good friend. “Where everyone saw someone weird and awkward, she looked at me and saw beauty. She saw someone who can be successful”. Daphne was used to photographing others and never thought that she had what it takes to be in front of the camera, but as she got comfortable with photography, it was undeniable. She wanted to be in front of the camera.

“I took my friend’s advice and joined Max. During the orientation and classes with Alec [acting coach], he asked me what took me so long. My only response was that I never saw what everyone else did. I am a perfectionist and I didn’t think I had it, but I do now.  Not only do I have the ability to make it,  I Will Make IT!! I will not give up”.

“Taking the step to join Max was very nerve-racking. When the pandemic hit, it made the journey a little longer but it was definitely worth the wait.  Alec saw something in me during his classes and cast me in his film “We did it”. It was my first speaking role ever. He assured me that it was going to be great.

On my first day on set, I could have almost thrown up because I was so nervous.  But the cast and crew hyped me up so much, there was no denying it. I cried in the bathroom afterward, not because I thought I messed up or failed but because I finally was doing something I felt good doing. I felt like this was my calling and I’m finally doing what I was put on this earth to do.

After being cast on “We Did It,” I am officially on IMDb. I was so excited to see myself on that website I threw myself a celebration. I am going to award myself for every achievement no matter how small…but this was HUGE!!”

Daphne is a mom of 3, her second being MAX Talent, Isaiah P., who loves video games, the pool, and watching/creating YouTube videos. 

Isaiah got into modeling and acting with his mom to spend more time with her. He was already used to being in front of the camera because Daphne was always taking pictures of him. Lots of people tell him that he has a great smile so he tried it out! He also got into doing extra work with his mom. He has been on Locke and Key, and The Boys. “I was really nervous the first time but it was so amazing”.

He hasn’t gotten to do much with Max yet but he has enjoyed his acting classes and shooting audition tapes.

What is your dream role?

Daphne: “To play alongside Viola Davis. There is one scene with her on How to Get Away With Murder where I fell in love with her as an actress. She puts it all into every character she plays and I can only hope to be as great as she is. My goal is to play alongside her”.

Isaiah: “My dream role would be to be in a cartoon. I would get to hear myself in a cartoon, that would be so funny.”

What is the best advice that you have received about getting into the industry?

Daphne: “To never stop working for what I want. Put myself into everything, no matter how minor. And watch as much TV and movies as possible”.

Isaiah: “The best advice my mom gave me was to be patient.  Because the days are really long and sometimes I just really wanted to go home. So I am learning to be patient”.

Toronto Talent agency features actor Bobby Cole

Meet Bobby Cole. He is a talented Toronto actor who is part of Max Agency’s roster!

Bobby who has Ukrainian roots, has been in various job positions over the years, including being a talent scout and manager for 5 years! Every time he starts a new job, he rushes back to the entertainment industry because that is where he feels the most alive. 

How did you get into acting?

“As a child, I always knew I wanted to be in the entertainment business. I just had to figure out the first steps and I haven’t looked back since. Halfway through my 3rd semester in College, I decided to get a background agent and the snowball started rolling. Soon after, I joined the Second City Training Centre for beginner classes and by the time I finished my 5th class, I was already auditioning for their conservatory class.

I went to business school prior to Second City so I had zero knowledge of improv but I did get casted for the one year program, so that was a very surreal feeling. I loved every second of it. Who knows, maybe I’ll give it another shot for the Conservatory Program. I highly recommend any one who is starting off in this business to start at Second City. For me it was the perfect platform to find my place in this ever growing business. “

 Any memorable moments from set?

“My most memorable role with Max Agency has been the role of HERB ABRAMS in THE DARK SIDE OF THE RING series. COCAINE and COWBOY BOOTS is the name of the episode. It was a very intense few days on set. I don’t remember much of being on set and I live vicariously through what I’m told.
 
I lived through similar situations as the character did in real life, so I instantly went in to that mindset and ran with it.  About a month ago, I filmed another episode for the same show, playing a totally different character, and the crew was calling me Herb when they realized it was me. It’s a feeling that really grounds you and reassures you that you’ve done the job they hired you for and to continue growing as an actor.”
 
Bobby shares, “When I read a script for the role of any character, I try to look at the similarities between the character and me. I look for phrases or even bad habits that we share, or shared, together. I think that’s why I morphed into Herb Abrams so well, I’ve lived some of the things he has. I instantly forget the crew or the camera and I just focus on the take. I let it flow as it’s supposed to and if it doesn’t, we do it again.”
 
Bobby took a break from the business for a while, so he is now hungry for more! He would love to play the role of a psycho whom his audience will remember for  a long time, the character who has the grossest death in a horror, an action lead, or a role in  a cheeky romcom. The  more versatile the role, the better! 
 
What is the best advice that you have received about getting in the industry?
 
“The best advice I got when I started in this industry was from a colleague who once told me, “EVERY MOVE, A PICTURE”, interpret it as you wish. My advice to anyone is “WHEN YOU THINK YOU’RE AT YOUR WEAKEST, YOU’RE ACTUALLY AT YOUR STRONGEST. BECAUSE YOU KEEP PUSHING FORWARD. I say this to anyone who needs to hear it, regardless if its on set or in real life, it gives people and yourself that extra push to keep going.”
