As an actor, he’s learned a lot from the various characters he’s played, but he doesn’t appreciate them as much as the role he’s found most fulfilling.
“My name is Michael Hudson. What made me pursue acting at first, being an avid lover of movies already. Anything that you love, it feels like it’s an escape from everything that’s going on in your life—stresses and worries and stuff like that and it gave me an opportunity to really live their lives, that’s something that’s not similar to mine. My dad was in the Navy so we moved around a lot, so we moved from South Carolina to San Diego, to Sacramento, California. Then we finally stopped at Everett, Washington. My parents, they were very very gracious and very expressive. They encouraged me to, not only expand myself as a person, but to dream big.
When I was down in Los Angeles, I did a lot of plays. Also did some national commercials. When I first moved to LA, I was just getting in touch with brethren right away. It was such a big locale. There’s always activities going on and so it was very easy for me to go to these activities. I would take working with the brethren any day of the week. The reason why I say that is because when all of you are a team, and you’re working for the common goal, which is to not only inspire brethren, but to also give honor and glory to God, nothing beats that. And in my vow prayers, I always told God that no matter what happens, no matter what dreams I go for, ‘I would always keep You at the number one choice in my life’.
So, one time, I was part of an INCGiving activity and I was part of the ones in charge of coordinating and organizing the event. And I got a call from my agent. Basically she was saying producers specifically chose you and wanted to meet you in person. Can you drive down to Santa Monica in about an hour? Always keeping God number one is my first priority and so I had to turn down the audition. You know at the time time, I was kinda like ‘Man, did I really turn down a national commercial?’ But at the end of the day, it’s kinda like there’s gonna be future auditions and there was.
God is truly the one who has blessed me with everything. And He never wastes time on me, so why should I abandon my time with him? I think that in all that I do, whether it be acting or any jobs I partake, always keep God number one.
I’m Michael Hudson and I’m a member of the Church of Christ, Iglesia Ni Cristo.”
