So many inspiring podcasts out there allow us to hear all about how well-established stars got to where they are today. But those actors are so faaaaaaar away from where so many of us are today! Wouldn’t it be great to hear from the guy who just booked his first pilot? Or the kid finally doing a studio pic after a bunch of low budget indies? Or the woman who’s been a series regular a few times but is only now becoming a name? What about the guy who’s been on a show for years and you know his face but what’shisnameagain? Or that actress who is now a freakin’ showrunner???? How’d THEY do it, right? How did they transition from relative obscurity, bartending and bottle service, to buying that house in the hills?

We’re producing “Kahnversations,” a podcast that provides access to THOSE people -- your immediate predecessors -- so that you can learn from them while their battle scars are still fresh.

In “Kahnversations,” our own Ryan Bailey interviews some of Lesly Kahn & Company’s working actors, directors, and writers in order to learn how they got started in Hollywood, the challenges and hurdles they faced, and how they overcame the odds.

You might even hear a bit about how Lesly and the Kahnstitute have influenced and shaped their careers.

New "Kahnversations" Podcast with Actor
Ginifer King!

 


In this installation of "Kahnversations," we interview Ginifer King. For the past few years, Ginifer has played the frazzled, big city in a small town single mother Michelle Hathaway on Nickelodeon’s THE HAUNTED HATHAWAYS. She began her career at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, where she was discovered by NYC casting director Jim Carnahan who cast her in the upcoming Broadway revival of GYPSY, starring Bernadette Peters and directed by Sam Mendes. Ginifer went on to play the title role of Gypsy Rose Lee numerous times opposite Ms. Peters. Other Broadway credits include Shelby in STEEL MAGNOLIAS, opposite Delta Burke and Christine Ebersole, and as Sister Claire in CYRANO DE BERGERAC with Kevin Kline, who also, incidentally, was her Secret Santa that year. She’s done Off-Broadway, she’s done 29-hour readings, she’s done all the LAW & ORDERs – basically, she did NYC. After moving to LA, she guest starred on numerous network procedurals as mistresses, embezzling secretaries and, of course, serial killers. For the past five years she has simultaneously been a part of the LA based company “For the Record”, a live - 360 degree theatrical experience bringing the movies of such directors as Tarantino, Baz Lurhmann, the Coen Brothers, and Scorsese to life through their soundtracks. She spent this past summer performing the FOR THE RECORD: BAZ show, partnered with Cirque de Soleil. She entered from the ceiling on a swing and there was glitter involved – she was in heaven.

In this installation of "Kahnversations," we interview Victoria Garcia-Kelleher. Leaving Saint Paul, Minnesota, Victoria moved to Los Angeles to follow her passion for acting. In no time, she landed her first guest appearance opposite Jennifer Aniston on the hit NBC show FRIENDS. Since then, she has worked with such powerhouses as Mel Gibson, Steven Spielberg, Sally Fields, and Patricia Heaton.

Sometime during all of this, Vikki managed to marry her college sweetheart and have two wonderful children, but she didn’t settle down. She continued to hone her skills through the ever-challenging craft of improvisation at the renowned ImprovOlympic West and Upright Citizens Brigade, as well as remaining committed to exploring her craft through stage work, studying, and teaching alongside her amazing acting teacher, Lesly Kahn .

Most recently, Vikki had a recurring role working with Aaron Sorkin on NEWSROOM, and she shot a Super Bowl commercial for THE WALKING DEAD. Backstage West has called her “adorable,” The L.A. Times raved that she’s a “blissfully comic actor,” and The Beverly Hills Courier stated that she is an “incredibly talented actor.”

She has also been blessed with a wonderful commercial career, where she has worked with the likes of Charles Barkley, Richard Simmons, and the sexy Liquid Plumbr guy.

New "Kahnversations" Podcast with Actor 
Todd Stashwick!

 

 

In this special, post Comi-Con installation of "Kahnversations," we interview Todd Stashwick, star of Syfy Channel's 12 MONKEYS. Todd’s first professional dream was realized at a young age when he was hired to tour the country with Chicago’s famous The Second City.

Following productions at The Second City Detroit and The Second City Northwest, Todd moved to New York. There, he formed a company of improvisers and began staging the underground critically acclaimed BURN MANHATTAN all over the city. Other performers often included Kate Walsh and Jeremy Piven.

Work in television and film drew him to Los Angeles where he shot several pilots, series and recurring work. Todd has been seen in such films as the Blumhouse Thriller, MOCKINGBIRD; YOU, ME AND DUPREE; SURFER DUDE; THE AIR I BREATHE; and LIVE!. In addition, he starred in the independent film TO BE FRIENDS, written and directed by Jim Eckhart and produced by Aaron Eckhart, which opened The Boston Film Festival. He will soon be seen in JANE GOT A GUN opposite Natalie Portman and Ewan McGregor.

Most notably, Todd is known for his role as Dale in the FX series THE RICHES opposite Minnie Driver and Eddie Izzard. Other favorites include SUPERNATURAL, portraying Bela Lugosi's Dracula, and roles in such shows as GOTHAM (recurring), ORIGINALS (recurring), HEROES (recurring), WEEDS (recurring), TEEN WOLF (recurring), JUSTIFIED (recurring), BURN NOTICE (recurring), as well as comedies like THE EXES, DHARMA AND GREG and WILL AND GRACE. He was excited to be part of the Seinfeld reunion episodes of CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM where he played NBC president Sandy Goodman.

In addition to acting Todd has launched several writing projects over the last few years, including the web-comic strip DEVIL INSIDE (a collaboration with writer/artist Dennis Calero). He also sold and developed a pilot for Syfy that he wrote with Dennis Calero. Realizing another dream, he is currently co-writer on the STAR WARS video game for Visceral games and Electronic Arts, headed by the influential game developer and director, Amy Hennig.

Todd enjoys surfing, is a vicious cinefile and loves to travel. He has a minor obsession with turn of the century Coney Island. A shameless geek, he’s an avid gamer and lover of comic books, sci-fi and horror. His love of improv remains strong and he continues to perform and teach at festivals, both at home and abroad. He lives with his family and too many pets in the Los Angeles area.
