Who Am I ?
ANDREW MARCUS ISLEY
1: Who am I?
Andrew Marcus Isley, aspiring actor, model, nightlife beauty. A professional shower singer and one of NYC’s most eligible bachelors.
2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?
After gaining experience in numerous theatre productions, I have decided to cross over into film. That is my first and foremost reason for residing in NYC. While here, I was embraced into the dark glittering world of nightlife where I created a second image for myself.
Currently in business I am looking for a director to trust me with a breakout blockbuster role that fits me perfectly. In nightlife I along with my partner in crime, the ItBoy Christopher Van Cleave, are collaborating for some new parties with the legendary Lee Chappell and DJ Crazyred. In my personal life, I am working on creating a second me so I can work 24/7.
3: Where are you from and where are you going?
Growing up with jet-setting parents, I have lived in many places across the globe yet claimed by none. In the future, I will be playing in a cinema near you. And not in a Pee Wee Herman kind of way.
4: Who is your biggest hero?
Gandhi. Just kidding, it’s Paris Hilton.
5: What book is your bible?
Much to people’s surprise, I am an avid reader. I have a fondness for fantasy novels because I enjoy at times escaping into a world that is the complete opposite of my own. Old favorites of mine would be Greek Mythology or The Wheel of Time series. This year in my bag, though, you will find books from the epic series Malazan Book of the Fallen. Health fact: people don’t realise the bigger the book you read the better work out you get carrying it around.
6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?
I love a little mystery, being under cover of night, dark humor, my family for shaping me, jewelry, a plethora of music, pessimism–because, let’s face it, someone will end up emptying that half-full glass, fur any time of year, money, and proper table etiquette.
I hate sleeping with a passion; I think it is an enormous waste of my time. I hate when people try to hard to be politically correct, I don’t believe in sugar coating things. Lastly I hate being stereotyped because I am anything but what you’ll expect.
7: What is your raison d’être?
To set forth in making my dreams happen and never settle for less. Then, in turn, inspire others to have the same hope and not give up.
8: What is your favorite color?
9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?
Well, I always loved The X-Men when I was younger. I liked many of the characters, but perhaps I slightly leaned towards Dark Phoenix the most. Something about this complex tortured soul with all that sheer power; no one stood a chance against her.
10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?
I believe I will always have a strong sentimentality towards The Griffin its simply gorgeous, and I have many great memories of parties I’ve done there.
11: What turns you on?
Ambition, followed by success.
12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?
Can you do an American accent for the audience?
Andrew Marcus Isley is an internationally traveled male debutant who has set his eyes upon New York City to carry out his ambitions. After being featured in TV shows such as Law & Order and Gossip Girl, he has had a taste of Eve’s Apple and wants the whole thing.
