Gus Kenworthy has acting aspirations: “Growing up, I did theater. My dream was to be an actor, not a skier”
Gus Kenworthy is known for being a world class Olympic skier who is also good looking, charming and articulate.
What he’s not known for is being an actor. He hopes to change that. In a new interview withHotSpots Magazine, he talks about his new ambitions.
What are your acting aspirations?
I would love to be on Broadway. I would like to work on my voice, and maybe get it to a place where I feel confident with my singing so that I can do more theatrical-type stuff. It would be a dream to be on TV and in movies. Growing up, I did theater. My dream was to be an actor, not a skier.
Acting doesn’t always promise overnight success. Does that scare you?
No. I feel like I’ve had success in my sport and this is something I’m really into and passionate about and would love to pursue. I wanted it as a kid and then something else presented itself and I spent my life skiing, and I’m not done with it either completely, but this is a new thing. It’d be great and fun, and if it doesn’t (work out), it’s not the end of the world.
Will you compete in the next Olympics?
Maybe. I haven’t decided.
