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”.

Talent Showcase Saturday – Taniya S.

Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at MAX Agency —  a successful Toronto acting agency representing men, women and children.

 

This week we’ll be showcasing a uniquely talented member of our roster –Taniya S!

Who she is

I am a Canadian based artist with an undergraduate degree in Humanities. I graduated from Lakehead University where I specialized in English and visual arts. This is where I began to push my own limitations as an artist. Coming from a very artistic family, I was enrolled in voice lessons, visual arts and instrumental classes which lead me to choose the form of art that I wanted to focus on over the course of my young adulthood. As visual arts became my predominant form of artistic expression, it wasn’t until I graduated university that I decided to transition into modelling and established interest in acting. For a long time I kept modelling as a side project, and focused on my career in graphic design and architecture. Continuing to work with independent artists, I always knew that I’d eventually like to focus on the arts entirely.

“How did you get into modelling/acting?”

Acting for me is a remarkable skill to have. I enjoy the manipulation of emotions, and the ability to be able to bring out genuine reactions from viewers. Using life’s lessons, downfalls, achievements and obstacles as inspiration in acting is my escape from mundane moments of reality.  Establishing a character, and being able to represent it in the most authentic manner has always been of interest to me. Instead of painting a picture to represent ideas, I look at acting as a visual display of chosen expression through movement and the human body.

His Experience with MAX Agency

My experience with MAX has been great! Everyone is very friendly and professional! I am gaining useful tools to be able to bring forth in auditions and future roles. I love the extra educational classes that MAX offered, and the bonds that I have been able to make with other actors/models within MAX. Not to mention – the entire team, from my agent to marketing and promotions is extremely fluid. You can count on them to set you up for success.

Extracurriculars 

When I am not at the gym, or in meditation/practicing yoga, you can find me at a coffee shop sipping on latte’s (no sugar) and working on poetry/art. I maintain an extremely healthy lifestyle; I am working towards a bikini competition and am constantly under supervision by my bikini prep coach. I am blessed to have a team of coaches to prep me for upcoming roles, acting jobs, modelling jobs and fitness appearances.

Her Dream Role

My dream role is any role that I can break down in order to bring out the rawest emotions that are suitable for that character. I am merely a mask that can morph into anything!


“Best advice for someone looking to get into the industry? or best advice you’ve received?”

The best advice that I have received was from my acting coach: To take note of the characters that are around you, notice everything from posture, to voice tone, to mannerisms, accents and hand placement/movement. All of these attributes define a character. When altering into a character – you are no longer you.

Extra

What’s interesting is that we often feel impatient in our own skin when trying to achieve our goals, especially in acting and modelling. What I realized is this – LIFE is preparing you to be the best actor ever. Taking note of behaviour, attributes, and all of the characters that you will encounter in your journey is priceless information! Finding humour and what makes a moment so pure will help to reach the pinnacle of your career.
