May 26, 2020

Today we sit down with Atkins Estimond and in his world timing is everything. Atkins hit the Atlanta scene right at the beginning of its boom as a regional market. Self-taping his way to every role. If you’re considering starting your acting career in Atlanta or making a move there this is the episode for you. In this interview we pull back the curtain on the Atlanta market and get specific about what actors can do to get working there.

A die heart Atlantian Estimond has found his career to flourish from roles in studio features like “Get on Up” opposite Octavia Spencer and “Dumb and Dumber To” opposite Jeff Daniels and Jim Carey to major recurring roles on Fox’s “The Resident” and AMC’s “Lodge 49.” These are just a few of the amazing projects Atkins has booked in the southeast market. He has now landed his first series regular role on Jerry Bruckheimer’s “Hightown” premiering on Starz May 17th, 2020 directly out of Atlanta and sees nothing stopping his ability to continue to not only work but build a legacy career from his beloved Georgia.

Listen as Atkins breaks down exactly what he did to back door his way into Hollywood and even begin working out of LA and New York. These are the unforgettable stories that landed Atkins Estimond right here.
