Modeling, influencing, and acting highlights
Alexander Tamargo (AT): You have a passion for modeling, acting, and influencing, which one do you take pride in the most ?
Mark White (MW): Honestly I take deep pride into everything I do. Modeling I can say is mostly my favorite, Iʼve always wanted to model ever since I was a kid. I had my first professional modeling experience in 2015 when I stood in front of 10 photographers participating in a project called , “Sac after dark”. I was very nervous as I didnʼt know what to do cause it was my first project and to be done in front of so many photographers was a crazy experience for me. I was excited after seeing my images and getting good feedback from family and friends about how well
I looked in my photos . Thatʼs what encouraged me even more to pursue a career in modeling.
AT: You were born and raised in Sacramento, California what opened the gates for you ?
MW: The gates were opened for me when a local photographer seen my athleticism. He encouraged that I should start taking photos and posting them onto social media. He then told me that him and a group of photographers would be shooting photos downtown, and that I should come by to participate in the project. I took the opportunity and connected with other talents who were already pursuing their modeling career.
AT: You have acted in some popular films, which one did you have most fun participating in ?
MW: I had fun working in all films I played in and very blessed to have had the opportunity. The one that I had the most fun in was when I got to work with Dave Bautista in the film Bushwick; Thatʼs the one that got my feet wet in the acting industry.
AT: What type of modeling do you like to do ?
AT: You have a bright future ahead of you, what is your next biggest move ?
MW: Im taking one step at a time , but my biggest move is to leave my hometown and relocate to hollywood for better career opportunities.
AT: What was one of your favorite roles you played in a film?
MW: My favorite was when I played as a police officer in the film “Armed” by Mario Van Peebles. I always wanted to be a police officer in reality but never actually pursue my law enforcement career instead I wanted to be on the big screen. When I got accepted for the role I was very excited I felt like I was going to be an actual cop fighting crime but it was only me acting.
AT: Is there any advice that you want to give to upcoming models and actors?
MW: No matter how hard if you strive for it your gonna make it happen!
