Actor Transformation Interviews
Patrick Stalinski

Tell us a little about your background and how you broke into singing and acting?

I am a classically trained Opera tenor, I have been singing since Junior High. At 25 I was invited to sing in the chorus for Michigan Opera Theater in Residence touring program.  I discovered that my passion was singing and I was a pretty good actor too.  I moved to Hollywood and decided to try my hand at pursuing my career in the big leagues.

What inspires you?

I like to look into the eyes of my audience, and see I connect with their souls and hearts through song and spoken word.

What have been some of your favorite projects that you have worked on?

My favorite projects are the ones I discover something new about myself. I like to be challenged and whether it is a large or small role, give my very best performance.  I love acting in roles with comedy like “The Trouble with Mistletoe” also “I Do, Do I”.  I also enjoy playing tough guy roles like on the series “Corrupt Crimes” in the role of “Italian Judge” or “Mafia Crime Boss”.  

What advice would you give to performers starting out in the biz?

I would advise anyone getting into the business to be focused. Get tunnel vision and keep pushing forward every single day. Be persistent, and concentrate on getting on set.  In the beginning don’t be picky about what acting jobs you’re doing, it is better to be acting, doing what you love, than waiting tables. Leave you pride and ego at home, but be confident. Be honest with yourself and rehearse. Be grateful for everything and everyone. Treat everyone with Love, Honor and Respect.

What’s next for you?

I am currently working on several different projects, both singing and acting, separately and together.  I’m working on my music video, for “All the Way”.  It is the first release of many new music videos to come.  I will be going to Norway soon to sing with the famous Norwegian soprano Bodil Victoria Arnesen. I also have many projects coming up with my production company Aurora Music and Entertainment Group LLC.  We are assembling an amazing group of talent both in management and production.
