Terrence Colby Clemons plays the handsome Pastor Price in Jewvangelist. Learn more about him, below!
1. Tell us about yourself. Where are you from and what is your background?
I am from College Park, GA and…my background? Like ethnic background? Well. I’m Black.
2. Tell us about your acting career so far.
On a winter day in Sandy Springs, Georgia, circa 1995, I stepped out onstage as the King of Hearts. The reviews from my 4th grade peers were unanimous: “Terrence is the greatest actor since Robin Williams in Jumanji.” — I’ve never looked back.
3. What is your dream job/role/project?
Do I have to put just one?? I’d love to star in a movie alongside Meryl Streep. Where I’m playing her adopted son. And Denzel Washington is my father. Halfway through, the movie becomes an action film, where I have to fight Denzel (Bourne Identity style), in order to save my mother (Meryl Streep). We’d all win Oscars. Oh. Sidney Poitier is somewhere in there too.
4. Who inspires you most in your field?
Meryl Streep, always and forever. And every actor, director, writer of color before me, who dared to follow his or her dreams.
1. Who do you play in Jewvangelist? Tell us about him or her.
I play Pastor Michael Price, or as the crew calls him, “P. Price”. He is (hmm, I don’t want to give away too much) an honorable, giving, beer-loving pastor at a local church who helps Rabbi Leah on her journey.
2. Which aspect of your character’s personality is closest to your own? Which is the furthest?
Great question. The closest is by far Pastor Price’s insane sex appeal. The furthest is, while I love my beer, I am very much a Malbec kind-of-man.
3. What drew you to Jewvangelist?
4. Tell us a story about something that happened on set.
Oh man. I had a shoot for a national print campaign and was requested to shave my face. Three days later I was called to set. Pastor Price has a mustache and beard (…You see where I’m going here?). I grow hair about as quickly as a boy at his Bar Mitzvah, but, with a little magic from our makeup team, within minutes I had facial hair again. Crisis averted. (You should also ask Alex about his “injury”. #LOL)
5. What makes Jewvangelist a must-see?
The Make out Scene in Act 5 – okay, okay. Honestly, the cast and crew are my favorite that I’ve worked with in a long time. They make Jewvangelist a must-see.
THE WILD CARD:
What is your spirit animal?
I’m not really sure what this means, but when I was in fourth grade I wanted to be a cheetah. Does that count? #ImDeadSerious
