We had the good fortune of connecting with Angela Perkins and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Angela, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
I have several favorite quotes one in particular is if you can control your mind, you can control your life.
This quote is important to me because once you have control over your mind, you can do anything. A person’s thoughts and emotions aren’t always positive. Once a person is able to recognize it, they will be able to change their focus away from negativity. Being positive does not mean ignoring your issues but choosing to see the good over the bad. Change your mindset!
I like it because it takes self discipline. If you do not know how to control how you think, you cannot control what you do.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m an actress, director and producer. I started out in Theater. I did theater for seven years; the last two years it’s been film/tv. What sets me apart from others is that my goal is to grow as a person, entertain and educate the audience and make a real impact on other people through film and live entertainment. I’m most proud that my first short film received an award from Worldfest Houston Film Festival and Queens Underground Film Festival and was selected to a few film festivals and To Feel Loved II won an award from the Worldfest Houston Film Festival and won winner and best trailer form Hollywood International Golden Age Festival. I told the story to Sandra Basey and she wrote To Feel Loved I and then I wanted to add on to the film and I wrote To Feel Loved II along with Detrah Brown as the co writer. From there, a stage play was performed from the same name To Feel Loved. How I got to where I am today is by making my dreams come true. Long story short, I was asked to be in a stage play because at the time my daughter was too young for the role. The director, Darryl Wimberly, was persistent at the time and finally I agreed to the role. From there I met Tracey Bonner, another director and then from that production an actor approached me to take my acting a step further and with this production (AWJ) the director really pushed me. I didn’t do this because of the money in the past but because I loved it. No it’s not easy. I overcame the challenges by not giving up and having a positive mindset. Lessons I have learned along the way is if you want to change your life you must be committed, consistent and keep going (trust the process).

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my best friend was visiting the area, We would take a tour of the city in the car the first day. We would grab something to eat at Pinstrips. The second day we would visit Nasa’s Space Center and visit Kemah. We would eat at Landry’s.
The third day we would visit the outlets then head to Galveston for a ride not to get in the water but a tour.
The forth day we would eat lunch at Loch Bar then later we will have dinner at Mastro’s Steakhouse.
The final day we would have to eat brunch at The Breakfast Klub.
