Create your own work again and again.

Show them the real you and the real world characters.

Taylor Coriell is a New York-based actor, writer, producer, and redhead who hails from Kentucky. She is a two-time finalist for the Sundance Institute/YouTube New Voices Lab and her first webseries, You’re The Pest, received a spot in Big Vision, Empty Wallet’s Kickstart Diversity program. Taylor recently joined the writing team for the second season of the award-winning webseries, Redheads Anonymous.

Season 1 of You’re The Pest is currently airing new episodes Wednesdays at 12:30pm EST on YouTube.

Taylor and I talk about what actors can learn from creating their own work and why it’s more important than ever to share the real, everyday voices of the people and characters you create.
