What is Your Breakout Role? (with Actor Chris Webster)
Whether it be music, art, writing, or in this case, acting, everyone strives for that breakout moment. Serendipitously, Austin met with English actor Chris Webster right after he might have experienced that critical moment. What followed was a conversation on fame, chasing the ephemeral, giving up, moving forward, and the ins-and-outs of the LA acting industry. Mr Webster's alluring accent doesn't hurt, either.
