Staged in February, the production of David Auburn’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play featured Reid as Hal.
Reid spoke with Jonathan Shia about his passion for acting, which in many ways came about as an outgrowth of his modeling career. “There was maybe a person or two in the [fashion] industry who said ‘Have you considered acting?’ but people say that all the time,” Reid explained. “I don’t think they understand the weight of acting, the world of it. You can’t just do it because of how you look.” Despite countless campaigns and editorials to his name, Reid has never rested on his good looks. In fact, Reid pursued admission to the William Esper Acting Studio with dogged persistence. “I basically called [Terry Knickerbocker] for a week straight.” Reid’s perseverence paid off and he was finally admitted to the distinguished program. Reid’s work in theatre has continued into the spring on a series of one-acts by Tennessee Williams. Please visit Visual Tales to read the interview with Reid in full.
