How Does An Actor Handle Being Mixed Race? by Dar Dixon

Dar Dixon, Actor: It goes sideways. You can see it in people’s faces. You can hear it in their voice. You can see it in their body language and you know inside…I get upset.

Film Courage: Well you have a great look because you can be so many things. But you can definitely play someone out of West Texas [mentioned earlier in the interview].

Dar: Probably could.

Film Courage: Do you have different looks for your website where you try to play it more Anglo or whatever? Or try to play it more Mediterranean?

Dar: That’s a great question. You know I have necessarily played different characters who looked a different way but in coming back to you want to work and you want to be successful and you want to continue down that path.

What ended up being my bread and butter where I call it “Suit Man” because this is new…the hair…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
