What Makes Keith Powers So Special

Though the model-actor doesn’t get to pick his roles but he says that he would like to play roles that are absolutely different from his real life. Keith Powers is fascinated by acting because it lets him become someone new each time. His character of La Darius Pope in Sin City Saints is unlike what he is in real life. In an interview Keith said that he faced a lot of challenges when he started out. He says he used to give the best during auditions and yet not get the part. Many times he was very close to being selected but got rejected. But the talented person never gave up and stayed “faithful and confident” and continued to do better. He also struggled while annunciating his words but kept trying.

Beyond Fame

When Straight Outta Compton was being thought about, a controversy broke out as some people did not want the movie to be made and small arguments also took place on the sets. The movie is an American biographical film which traces the career of gangsta rap group N.W.A.; it did well at the box office. Keith Powers revealed to Galore Magazine that his girl crush was Zendaya but she has never responded to him. The cutest thing that the rising star has done for a girl is to send flowers and chocolates. He also likes to write something on a card.

Thanks for having me, @therealdaytime.
