Please introduce yourself, what you do, why you do it, and what you want people to know about you.
Hi! My name is Eli D. Goss and I am an actor.
I started out in modeling, but when I was 5 I told my mom I wanted to be in movies and on TV. That’s when it started. I’ve been in commercials, short films, and some TV films/ shows.
I have been honored with winning Best Actor American Youth Film Festival 2019, Star of the Year American Youth Film Festival 2020, and Best Actor In A Commercial Role Young Artists Academy 2020. I have also been honored with multiple other nominations.
When I’m not acting I love ALL sports. Currently, I play ice hockey and lacrosse. I also enjoy swimming, archery, skateboarding, rollerblading, snowboarding, basketball, baseball and am learning to golf.
I also take stunt fighting class and parkour so I can hopefully do my own stunts one day.
I LOVE acting, learning lines, and being on set. I also like learning about lighting, camera, and directing.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
I’m all about helping and being kind. I also like helping others in need.
I have videos where I have read to kids for a library, donated school items and holiday gifts to those in need.
I like helping in any way I can.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you wanted to do what you do now. Who did you tell first? What has it been like since that moment?
I was just watching TV one day, pointed at it, and told my mom “I want to be on TV and in the movies.”
Since then we have worked hard to make it happen. But I like that everyone on my team allows me to decide on my own if I do or do not want to audition for a role. I like that I get to decide.
I get to do what makes me happy. Nothing is better than that.
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve had to face and how did you overcome it?
Sometimes roles call for singing. I’m not a confident singer. But….. I practice and record and submit.
I’m feeling a little better so now I’m taking classes so I can learn proper breathing to be able to carry a tune.
If you had to pick the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could take your career (or business) to the next level…who would those 3 people be?
I really don’t have a top 3 of people I’d want to meet. I just enjoy being around people and being on set.
Other people aren’t responsible for your career or your life. Only you are.
Others can help (and I have an AMAZING team of agents, managers, and coaches) that really help me be the best I can be.
WITH THAT….. I DID like my class where I got to meet Amber Horn and Bullock and Snow. I would LOVE to work with them.
