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.

2 Remarks

  1. Wishing Gus best of luck pursuing his second goal. If so, there be two hunky actors in his household.

  2. Gus needs to play the late Tab Hunter in the biopic.
