10. Career starting at the age of five
Morning shows the day – have you heard this phrase often?! Goes in complete sync with Perry Mattfeld’s life. Yes, she is a wonderful actress, and we love her antics. But, how did she ace perfection?
Many might not know this, but Perry started at the age of five as a ballet dancer. After this, she had spent close to a decade performing strict ballet, until she got introduced to the other dance forms. She had her first public stint with her dance instructor’ original theatre production Alex in Wonderland. After this, she appeared went on to
appear in more than one hundred sixty-four shows in the Los Angeles theatre, the Grove.
To achieve something big, you need to start by taking small steps from the very beginning.
9. Education is a must
Perry Mattfeld is that rare beauty with more than enough brains to match. She has shunned the idea that opting for an acting career means putting an end to education.
Even you don’t agree with that thought, right?
Well, Perry attended the University of Southern California, which is an A-ranked school in the United States. This is a very tough school to get into. She completed her major program of study at the University’s School of Dramatic Arts. Recently, she also earned her Bachelor of Arts in Film Theory and her B.F. A. Summa Cum Laude. Before this, she also graduated from LA Polytechnic Institute with a 4.6 GPA.
That was something impressive. All the budding actors out there – are you hearing this? Complete your education before venturing out for anything else.
8. A multi-millionaire with an affluent background
As per reports, during the years 2017 and 2018, her personal net worth was estimated to be somewhere between $100,000 and $1 million. At the beginning of 2019, her net worth took a huge leap. The current amount is now estimated to be around $2 million. She has made the majority of her fortune by becoming an actress. With her new and successful television stints in lead roles, we can expect her financial rise to continue in the years to come.
But all this success of which she is basking in right now is hard-earned. Perry’s father is a famous and distinguished attorney of the Los Angeles Area. Earlier in his career, he had been a member of several law firms of the area, and became the Deputy City Attorney, which is an accomplishment.
Despite belonging to such an affluent background, Perry is a self-made star and has successfully created her own identity, instead of depending on her father’s wealth.
Do we need more words to describe the learning we can garner from this twenty-six year old?
7. Has worked as a model and cheerleader
Yes, Perry Mattfeld is a multi-millionaire today. But before becoming an actress, she had her part of trouble and struggling days. Hard to believe?
Perry was a cheerleader when she was a student at the University of Southern California. She had also featured in Sports Illustrated as Cheerleader of the Week. In addition, to fend on her own and pay her bills, she tried modelling for few days, as a side profession.
We can’t expect to reach the tenets of success as soon as we kick-start. It takes some time to gear up, and the best way is to get involved in productivity, rather than lamenting in failures.
Did you ever think of any other side profession to help work your way up the productivity ladder?
6. Becoming Murphy
In the Dark series was a milestone in Perry’s career, and we don’t deny that. While prepping for the role, she said that she felt a kind of attachment when she reviewed the character.
It was not something that college had taught her. She would need to learn a lot of other things for the role. Mattfeld teamed up with the show’s blind consultant Laurie Bernstein and went on for training sessions. She took hours of training, just by observing her, watching her do daily chores, so she would have a sense of how to move in her space. She left no stones unturned to comprehend how she could make Murphy’s blindness more realistic for the show.
That speaks of sheer dedication, a much-needed virtue in no matter what we do.
5. Keeping relationships a secret
Perry is happily engaged. Yes, many would not know it as she likes to keep her personal life out of the media radar. That’s how things should be.
Perry is currently involved in a romantic relationship with Andrew Right. Right is a former baseball pitcher who played for the Cincinnati Reds baseball team. He has since retired from the sport and is now a member of the TVG horse racing network, which also deals in wagering.
The two make a mesmerizingly good-looking couple, and she is very happy in her current state right now.
Sorry boys! Yeah, I know, that was sad!
4. Perry’s surprising learning from her career
Perry Mattfeld was almost new to the television industry. She couldn’t comprehend the speed of the TV.
The fact that amuses her us that they don’t get the time to rehearse with other actors. Thus, missing out on improvisations during the final shoot. She has to be all set and prepared before entering the set because once you are in, you have to nail it. The director can help, but you can’t opt for a wiggle room.
That’s she feels is the major difference with theatres, where two actors can spend days in rehearsing one scene.
Little experiences from the field help to achieve greater success. At times, they might look difficult, but once accustomed, all becomes easy.
What do you think about it?
3. Recharging after a long day
Busy days and hectic work schedules are a common thing in today’s world. Detoxing at the end of the day is as important as involving yourself in the work culture.
There are many ways to detox: watch a movie, chat with friends, tune into favourite music, sit with the family. If nothing else can be done, you can always go to sleep for ultimate rest and relaxation. As for Perry, on her off days, she’s just too tired to talk to anyone. She has said in interviews that she would rather have her cat clung on to her chest.
Aaaw! That was sweet! What’s your off-day plan?
2. On handling rejections
Rejections come as a part of every profession but is especially prominent in acting. Before heading out towards the final call, it takes numerous attempts to make it to the scene. Agree to that?
But Perry has her own way of dealing with it.
She considers life to be composed of steps, and as things accumulate, there are rare instances when life takes a turn towards positivity. Life is a process and should be considered in the way that is.
That’s a wonderful way to look at it.
