TRANSFORMATION

If there is any question about passion, dedication and the determination needed to be a successful performer in the entertainment industry, look no further. It’s hard to believe when you see Eddie nowadays, but he used to be that fat, bullied kid, sitting alone in the lunchroom, getting things thrown at him. From seeking advice from whoever could help, educating himself with books and diet/fitness articles, to learning how to cook, Eddie transformed himself into the man he is today to better serve his dreams of being the leading man on screen! His inspiring story landed him articles in Men’s Health Magazine, BroBible, VT,  Unilad, and his insight about the evolution of the male action star was heavily featured in Vanity Fair Magazine.

Man Of Action


Being a Physical Actor and Doing the Action

What sets Eddie Davenport apart from other actors, other than his 6’3’’ athletic frame and the  leading man look, is his specialty with physical acting. A performance infused with adrenaline which provides audiences with the knowledge that the actor can actually do the things his character is depicted on screen doing. We see examples with blockbuster actors such as Dwayne Johnson, Harrison Ford, Tom Cruise, Jackie Chan, Charlize Theron, and Keanu Reeves, to name a few.

 It is vastly important to cast actors, such as Eddie Davenport, who are actually invested in the action scenes and who want the audience to have as much enjoyment as possible. Eddie also has the great ability to be relatable and show vulnerability, so the audience actually cares about what is happening to the character on screen. An actor that is unwilling to get involved with his own characters action sequences puts a strain on the director. It causes them to incorporate more cuts and angle changes to his/her vision than perhaps they originally planned on. This can be very frustrating not just for the director, but also the audience.
