"An eye for an eye makes the world go blind"
My name is Andrew Larkin. I'm 25 years old. I grew up in the Suburbs just outside of Philadelphia. I'm a middle child with two awesome sisters. I grew up playing sports like Football, basketball, baseball, with a little taste of theater. Ultimately, I then went on to College at Coastal Carolina University to recreate myself. I fell back in love with my acting classes and created a few shorts over the years. I graduated in 2020 Magna Cum Laude with a major in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in Communication and Sociology. After graduating, I dove deep into the space of personal development and holistic health and functional medicine. I distributed medical grade water ionizers and focused on how I can show up as the healthiest, best version of myself. Then I moved back to the Philadelphia area, and felt that it was the right time to pursue my dream of dreams. which is to be an actor and tell stories I'm passionate about.
The start of 2020 was a rocky road for a lot of us. Before the world shifted to a halt, I had made the lifestyle shift to embody a fully whole food plant based diet. And I have not looked back since. Learning new delicious recipes to cook by myself or with loved ones, while singing and dancing to music is one of my great joys in life.
Sometimes the routines of life can get me stuck in a nasty pattern. Tension builds inside my body and many nights I find that I did not take one conscious breath all day. When I feel this happening now, one of my absolute favorite, energy charging activities is to be in nature and leave that cell phone at home. Completely disconnect from all the noise and dive into the beauty and grace of the present moment, while listening to the river flow, dig my toes into the earth, maybe read a book. Even if it's just 15 minutes outside, I feel like a new man.
I didn't pursue the industry of acting until recently, but my ma tells me I've been performing my whole life. As I reflect, I realize that being on a stage and letting go of everything and dancing or performing in a talent show or acting has brought so much joy into my life. I fell in love with the theater classes I took in school, and when I signed up for my first play, I was honestly shocked at how quickly the nerves dissolved once I got lost on stage. Feeding off a live audience is a rush that's hard to truly explain. There's nothing quite like it.
