Tell us about yourself. You do so many things, acting, producing and being a comedian - one of my favorite professions. Tell me about how you got started in the exciting and busy world of entertainment.
LLoyd Booker: I’m an educator by trade. I worked in the Philadelphia School System, (Liam Neeson was a former teacher also!) I was also a counselor at the Mathematics Civics Sciences Charter School.
This is how and when I got started in film. One of my students - a young man Ahmir Covington - well his mother Adrianne Covington worked worked with Mike Lemon when M. Night Shyamalan was making “UNBREAKABLE” with Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson and Robin Wright Penn.
There’s a whole funny story about that and my conversations with M. Night, his staff , etc. because I was the 2nd choice after the 1st guy messed up!! I became Sam’s double/stand-in! I also worked with him and Ben Affleck on “ CHANGING LANES” and him & John Travolta on “BASIC and worked with Travolta & Joaquin Phoenix on “LADDER 49”.
