Thomas J. O’Brien is an award winning actor,
Thomas attended Rockland Community College for T.V. production & Real Estate studies. Then after his tenure at Rockland Community College after a couple of semesters, he decided to expand, further his Real Estate property management education studies. I then attended “New York Real Estate Institute” over on West 32nd street over on Midtown, Manhattan, New York & became a licensed New York Real Estate agent.
My interest in acting stemmed taking working on numerous T.V. Production courses in high school & college. I always had the interest to pursue acting, as I always had an interest, respect in “the arts”. Then around 2008, I took up my interest to pursue acting. Subsequently, I had worked on a couple of small new media film productions. Though my first feature I had the opportunity to work on was a low budget independent film entitled “A Dangerous Place” directed by David Schoner. Which I had a brief, walk-on role in on the last day of production, on the set over in Jersey City, New Jersey. Even though my appearance in the scene was very brief, I found the whole experience, being on set, filming that day, acting to be “encouraging”.
Encouraging to continue my ventures into acting, to work harder to progress as a talent/actor. I took steps to do just that. Although I had gone to numerous actor workshops for training in NYC, I truly began to hone into my craft as an actor when I attended an acting studio at “The Barrow Group Performance Center” in Midtown Manhattan, New York.
