Myles Phillips Betty Lynn Buckley Awards Houston, TX

How did you get into theater?

I got my start in ninth grade when I was a part of the musical at my high school. I loved it so much that I decided that I wanted to be in as many shows I could.

Who are some of your role models in entertainment?

Lin-Manuel Miranda and the people behind StarKid, because both went from being normal people that I would maybe see around my suburban neighborhood, to creating something amazing that grew to please the masses.

Why is performing important to you?

When I perform, I get an indescribable high. I just love entertaining people, and being on the stage is, I believe, the best place to do it. When you perform you can become someone else, and get away from your normal life, and live a new one. It’s a chance to be anything you want to be, and show people what you can do.
