SKSM: Could you start with telling me a bit about yourself? Who are you and what do you do?

Lawrence Sykkmon: I immigrant to the USA from CHINA when I was 15. I am an actor, I’ve been acting since 1996.  I used to own restaurants and furniture store.  I didn’t finish my college education. Instead I started taking acting classes. I find that college education useless. I like traveling for work. I don’t like traveling for fun. Sightseeing is pointless in my opinion. I enjoy people watching. I don’t like events with too many people.

SKSM: When did you know you wanted to become an actor?

Lawrence Sykkmon: I was born poor. Acting is really more like a survival skill to me. So being an actor is just like living. One must know how to change colors, like a chameleon.
