Jacob Artist is super cute in this feature for RollaCoaster magazine’s Summer 2013 issue, out on newsstands now!
The 20-year-old Glee actor opened up to the mag about working on the show, his character Jake, and skipping school to pursue his dream. Check it:
On turning down a spot at Juilliard for acting: “I just had this real passion to pursue acting. I couldn’t have gone to school for four years and not tried it. My parents said, ‘Are you sure that you want to do this? You’ve been dancing your whole life!’ But they backed me 100%. I started acting as soon as I got out here.”
On integrating singing into his work on Glee: “I never thought singing would be part of my career, so the way that that turned out was pretty insane. It’s an actual dream come true.”
On his character Jake on Glee: “I wish I could call myself a bad boy! I don’t think I really am. Jake can be a little brooding and mysterious and I’m kind of the opposite. I just like having a good time and to laugh my ass off.”
