If you are a fan of pop culture then chances are you would already know the body of work behind actor Michael Welch. Welch has appeared in movies such as Twlight as well as hit television shows like Joan Of Arcadia and Z Nation. Now he is appearing in a brand new horror called Blood Craft and he recently chatted to HEAVY Mag about his fans can expect from the film.
“So James Bressack the director contacted me,” he explains when he begins talking about he became involved with the film. “He had seen some things that I had been in over the years and it’s funny because I thought well maybe he had seen the Twilight movies or Z Nation – something I more known for – but he is such a film geek he had seen a whole bunch of little obscure films that nobody really knows about, and based on my performances in those he decided to reach out. These were movies that I couldn’t even tell you how to find, but this is a man who just lives and breathes films – he loves it and is super passionate about it. So yeah that is a good lesson for young actors always do your best work no matter what the circumstances are because you never know who is going to see it.
“Oh it’s great,” says Welch with excitement in his voice when I ask what it is like when an actor is offered a film role rather than having to go through the audition process. “Most of the time that is not how it happens. Usually you go through the traditional audition process but I’ve just been in the industry for so long that I have managed to cultivate some relationships and luckily enough I’ve been in some stuff that people have seen so it does happen from time to time and I am always very grateful when it does. Ultimately it is all about the work and I am always grateful to be able to work.”
