Today we’d like to introduce you to Draper Wynston.
Hi Draper, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
Acting was always something that I enjoyed doing. I just wasn’t sure where it would take me. It was just a hobby, then I decided that it would be my career. I became focused on it. I have been doing it since 2008, seriously. Starting with a stageplay called “G Meets G”, it was the first time I ever felt the energy of the audience the crowd. I knew then that this is what I wanted to make my career. I was have been blessed to work with some of the best in the industry and more. I have been blessed to work with actors such as Jennifer Holiday, Tony Grant, Terri J Vaughn, Columbus Short, and many more. My first film was called “Leaving Town” a short film shot in Dallas. I was acting with a seasoned vet named Drew Waters. He gave me some pointers and tips and I have not stopped. Fast forward, I am acting in network shows, award-winning shows, and winning awards of my own. The journey and process has been a ride, but it’s been a fun ride.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It has not been a smooth road. It’s been fun though. I truly believe anything easy is not appreciated. With being in the entertainment/acting industry there are ups and downs. I am told no more than I am told yes. So I appreciate every single audition, callback, and booking. Because someone said yes. I celebrate every single win. Also, you go through dry seasons or where you aren’t auditioning or booking. So I try to keep an even level. Never get too high or low. I also face self-doubt. Sometimes you feel you don’t belong or not good enough. I would also compare myself to others, that was a bad thing I realized. The saying, “Comparison is the thief of joy” is so true. For me now, every day is a process to get better. To become a better actor, a better person, and truly believe that I am worthy of success.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am an actor first. I have just wrapped a couple of projects. Two feature films are called The Forbidden Daughter and Lover’s Revenge. Which will be streaming soon. I also finished a film called “House of Lies” which will be Lifetime. Also, another feature film called “Why Women Trip.” I was blessed to be on CW’s Walker Season 1. Looking forward to a new sitcom coming up with Darrin Henson, Maurice Lauchner, and more.
Currently, I am most proud of being blessed to win “Best Guest Actor” at the Indie Series Awards in Los Angeles, CA. It was my first nomination in a single actor category. To win is still a feeling that I am truly embracing. It makes me want to work harder for me. So that I can continue receiving that feeling. It is also a testament of you never know where your projects may take you. I am still celebrating the win, but I am working for the next one.
What sets me apart from others is my work ethic, and drive. I am an actor, however, I cheer my peers on. I also don’t mind talking with upcoming actors who are just getting started. I remember when I was just getting started. I feel if I can help them in any way then I am helping them be better. I don’t believe in being a gatekeeper. There is plenty of work, projects, and films for all of us, We all can shine. We all can be great!.
I am also the co-host of Midweek Vibe: Podcast and Show, with my brother Colebain. We are on Episode 107. We just celebrated episode 100. We are truly excited about the next 100 episodes.
What matters most to you? Why?
What matters to me is being impactful. This industry can make you believe you are better than someone else. If you become too full of yourself then it can create a bad image. I refuse to be that way. I am a guy from Grambling, Louisiana, who grew up in Arlington, Tx. I will always be grounded.
If I can continue to inspire people and make them better by simply my actions. Then I am doing this for the right reasons. I truly want people to know they can be great at whatever they want to be. I want to inspire people to be more than just one thing, Try your different gifts, and go with what sticks and drives you every day.
