Elliot Micallef is an outgoing yet calm and quiet 25-year old. His motto is to enjoy life and live life day by day. His friends find him funny and there’s never a dull moment with him. Life has taught him a lot of things that have made him the person he is today.
“For this I am thankful to God. Four years ago, I graduated as a Mastru in the restoration and conservation of stone. At the moment, I am working in Tereza, playing the part of Roger,” states Elliot in this interview.
Tell us about your journey in becoming an actor.
Acting was never my main objective, though I always involved myself in prize days at school and other activities throughout the year. For eleven years, I played football and that gave me self confidence and trust in myself. After an injury that put me off football for 2 months, I enrolled in a drama course and that was it!
Can you describe your state of mind whilst acting?
When I’m acting, I forget everything and concentrate on my character. It’s like you have a double life.
What has been your biggest failure to date?
I don’t call them failures, I call them lessons. The biggest failures come when you don’t learn from your mistakes!
In your opinion, what’s wrong with the world today?
A lack of respect for each other. If people weren’t so materialistic and self-centred, the world would be a much better place. Love and respect is the answer!
What item of fashion could you not live without?
My watch. I check the time to make sure I use it in the best way possible. I do not like to waste time, so I cannot live without my watch!
How would you describe your relationship with money?
Everyone has a dream to become rich and make good money. Until then, I’m just enjoying my life!
