Dominic has been acting for years, and his star power is evident on social media: the teen has over 250K Instagram followers.
Everly Mag talked to Dominic all about acting, Total Eclipse, his experience on social media, and what’s next for this rising star.
Everly Mag: How did you find your passion and get your start in acting?
Dominic: I started acting when I was 10, when I moved to California. I wanted to act since I was 3, but we were living in Hawaii, [so] my mom blew me off. When we moved to California, I asked her if I could get an agent and that’s when I started acting. I knew I had a passion for acting since I was 3, and I always liked to be Spiderman. Now, I like playing different characters.
Everly Mag: What have been the top moments of your career so far?
Dominic: [One] moment is when I booked Total Eclipse, because it was my first series regular role, and [another is] when I booked my first national commercial, because it was one of my first auditions and it just made me want to keep going and never give up.
Everly Mag: How did you book Total Eclipse? What was your first day like on set?
Dominic: I basically got a phone call the day before we started shooting, and I was on set working the next day. I just thought [it] was going to be fun, because all the people on set and my cast mates were super nice and fun to be around. I was a little nervous at first, and then I met everybody and it turned fun real quick.
Everly Mag: Describe Brayden, your character on Total Eclipse. How can you relate to Brayden and how are you different?
Dominic: Brayden [is] kind of the cool boy in school that a lot of girls have a crush on. I like playing Brayden because of all the different things that I had to do for the role. It’s pretty cool being in the middle of a love triangle. I’m similar to Brayden. I feel like I’m cool and girls like me but I’m different in the way of how I approach it.
Everly Mag: What’s the best thing about being on set? What’s the hardest thing?
Dominic: All of the people are fun to be around and work with. Nothing is really bad – maybe just Jenzie shippers wanting to kill me, that’s it. Oh, and being away from my best friend, my lab Bo.
Everly Mag: What do you hope fans enjoy about the show?
Dominic: I hope they like all the drama! I want them to be able to actually feel that they’re a part of it.
Everly Mag: What’s the best thing about social media? What’s the worst thing?
Dominic: Social media is great. It’s fun to use. The best thing is all the support you get from your fans, and being able to connect with other people around the world. The worst thing is all the haters, even though I don’t have that many haters compared to others.
Everly Mag: How can teens make social media a better place?
Dominic: By just being supportive of everybody and not hating.
Everly Mag: Describe your personality in 5 words.
Dominic: Fun, cool, chill, funny, nice.
Everly Mag: What do you like to do in your free time and with your friends?
Dominic: In my free time I like to play sports, especially basketball. Whenever i’m with my friends, it’s just fun. It doesn’t matter to me what we’re doing.
Everly Mag: Which actors inspire you and why?
Dominic: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Holland, Brad Pitt, and so many more inspire me because they’re just able to fully commit themselves to [a] role and I just think that’s amazing.
Everly Mag: What are your hopes for the future of your career?
Dominic: I want to be a singer and actor and be able to have fun with it and be really successful with both. I want to work with Justin Bieber, Post Malone, Tom Holland, Steven Spielberg, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, and so many more in singing and acting.
Everly Mag: What can fans expect to see from you this year?
Dominic: More Total Eclipse, of course. I’m working on some music, too, which I’m really excited for.
Everly Mag: What else would you like our readers to know?
Dominic: I want to thank Everly Mag for doing this interview with me, it’s been fun. Everyone be nice to each other and spread love, not hate. Make sure to watch Total Eclipse on Brat’s YouTube channel.
