Michael Evans Behling

By Krishan Narsinghani

As of late, 360 Magazine sat down with actor, Michael Evans Behling, to discuss his story on becoming a series regular on the hit CW tv-show “All American.”

Behling was born in Columbus, OH but raised in Columbus, IN. Growing up, he played football, volleyball and ran track & field. Before pursuing college for track, Behling’s mother pushed him to try his hand at modeling. Flash forward one year, the biracial newcomer shot for notable brands like Nike, Finish Line and White Castle. Discovering a passion for comedic shorts via social media, Behling paved a career path that created an escape from negativity and depression. His personal life in a funk, acting molded that release and in return, made himself and others feel better. A bold move to LA quickly proceeded and transformed his life.

What do you think been your favorite part of shooting All American?

An outstanding cast. People-wise, we are a family that clicked from the beginning. There’s such a nice atmosphere including the production! Whether in the morning or night, I’m smiling going in.

Being relatively new to working the industry, what is one thing you would work on more?

To continue working even more and getting out on stage. Whether it means taking more classes and working as much I can to get even more comfortable doing my job.

One thing you’d work on less:

Before going into work. Whenever you get to set, you make something fun. The challenging part is when you get home at 3AM after a sixteen hour day and you have to prep for the next day. During the past 8 months, I didn’t sleep but it’s worth it. Being on stage, I’m still new and have a lot to learn. There are still moments where I felt like I could have done something better but it’s this feeling of “unsure” where I hesitate.

Describe your role and thoughts on your character Jordan:

Jordan is a cocky, confused, angsty high schooler who is the Beverly Hills High School quarterback. He’s dealing with some major identity issues, especially when Spencer comes to town and sees how his father and him connect – I think he’s got a really good heart and a lot of love for his sister and mom, but wants to connect with his Dad and fill his shoes. He’s slightly a jock with underlying actions and a lot of pain I have to hit while on set. Jordan’s a mixed kid who’s struggling to find himself but vicariously living through his dad. We’re both mixed so there’s a strong connection.

What advice to you have for minorities and kids of color breaking into the industry?

Right now we have an advantage – use this time now to get your training, get headshots and get whatever you need to get into the room. What’s the number one thing you could do before you get in? Ask yourself why you want to be in the industry. Do you know why you want to get into the industry for the right reasons? It’s because you want to make a change and love the craft. You love entertainment and make a positive change in somebody’s life.

One you get into the room, and you perform it’s out of your control. The door is going to open at some point. Stay positive and don’t get discouraged.

Rising star, Lilimar, is the embodiment of class and style. She is a young, energetic and gorgeous Latina – born in Venezuela to Cuban parents – and is the accumulation of everything Young Hollywood strives to be. She is best known for her series regular role on the Nickelodeon series “Bella & The Bulldogs,” but can now be seen starring in the networks popular new series: “Knight Squad,” which returns for season 2 in early 2019. Lilimar stars as the lead role of “Sage” a very interesting witch, that is full or fire and fury (but in a good way!). “Knight Squad is set at a magical school for knights in training, where two mismatched students form an unlikely alliance to protect each other’s secret and pursue their dreams,” according to a Nickelodeon show description.

Off-screen, Lilimar has used her strong social presence to set empowering, self-love social initiatives like #FreshFaceFriday and #StarGazeSaturday; with the goal of lifting up her followers and encouraging them to embrace their unique beauty and individuality.

I was really excited to start both of these on my socials, because I just love connecting with my stargazers (my supporters). I’m so incredibly grateful for every ounce of love & support they show as it always keeps me so positive and happy so I wanted to do something that shows that I support THEM just as much.” – Lilimar

The goal is to encourage young people to break boundaries and not be afraid to show the world who they really are beneath the make-up, the clothes, and fake images we try to portray online. We live in a world where we’re forcing ourselves to achieve perfection through photos instead of embracing our true natural beautiful selves. Connecting directly with her fans on these topics, Lilimar discusses issues that teens think about today like peer pressure, family, owning your individual power, societal norms in the modern age.

Her messages of truth and self-love are the reason why she’s poised to be America’s newest sweetheart.

TIPS TO BECOME A BETTER DRIVER

With more than 250 million vehicles on the road in the USA alone, there is a ton of traffic. Most people will drive at least once a day. With only arbitrary lines and lights keeping us in the right lanes and letting us know where to go, it is largely up to the skills and knowledge of drivers to keep everything safe and efficient.

Unfortunately, it is common for people to overestimate their driving skills. In reality, a large portion of us are pretty bad drivers. With that in mind, this article is going to look at a few different tips to become a better driver.

Scan Ahead and Be More Aware

When many people drive, they simply look at the car in front of them and drive based on what that person does. However, this means people often don’t have any idea what is taking place further down the road. Instead of starting right in front of you, you should try looking about 10-12 seconds down the road.

This will help give you more time to see and prepare for potential roadblocks or accidents. In addition to looking ahead, you need to be more situationally aware of things that are happening around you. You need to know how much space you have around your car, how other cars are behaving, and what’s taking place in your blind spots.

Brush up on Skills and Knowledge

For many of us, we haven’t really honed our driving skills since we took our introductory drivers tests when we were a teenager. This means most of us have likely forgotten important rules of the road. As a result, we should be sure to frequently brush up on our knowledge and practice important skills from time to time.

This can be done a few different ways. You could potentially take a driver training course or just use a helpful online resource to help you learn and then go driving and apply what you have learned. If you are interested in using an online resource to brush up on your skills, be sure to check out this link: The Ultimate Guide for Drivers! DMV & More | DrivingGuide.com

Keep Your Mirrors Adjusted

Your side and rear-view mirrors are the most important aspects of your vehicle in keeping you safe. While most people will position their side mirrors so they can see the edge of their car, that isn’t really necessary as your rear-view should have that covered. Instead, these side mirrors should be used to illuminate as many of your blind spots as possible.

While completely eliminating blind spots just isn’t possible, you can greatly reduce them by positioning your side and rear-view mirrors correctly. Of course, in addition to positioning them well, you should also be sure to use them and check them frequently.

Remove or Minimize Distractions

With the advancements in technology and the fact that almost everyone has a cell phone in their pocket, distracted driving is on the rise. While these technologies help us in so many ways, they are also one of the leading causes of car accidents. In fact, experts believe that cell phone usage while driving leads to over 1.5 million crashes every year.

These types of accidents are nearly 100% preventable and part of being a good driver is reducing these distractions. You should keep your phone tucked away, keep your eyes on the road, and your hands on the steering wheel at all times.

Hopefully the tips included in this article can help you become a better driver and keep yourself (and the other drivers around you) safe.

Vaeda Black

Through its sensational choreography from Tony Nominated and Emmy Winning AC Ciulla and the visual prowess of Director James Morano, Singer/Songwriter Vaeda Black has released her brand new video – “Suicide Love”! Based on her original concept, she credits Ciulla and Morano for their ability to bring her vision to life.

With the release of her latest single, “Suicide Love,” Vaeda Black takes the juxtaposition of two seemingly opposite topics and weaves them together to create a dark love story that illustrates the idea of being vulnerable and “showing yourself to another person and letting them love you.”

She says, “It actually started with a text message from my ex-boyfriend while we were together probably about a year ago. I don’t remember exactly what we were talking about, but he wrote ‘that’s called suicide, love.’ Something about those two words next to each other really struck me; they’re so different. I kept thinking it would be such an interesting way to express love, passion and deep wanting, so I wrote a song around it.” The combination of those two distinct feelings gives the song a truly unique sound and style.

Mir Fontane “Bodega” MV

Camden rapper, Mir Fontane kicks off the fall with his new “Bodega” music video, which premiered exclusively with Hypebeast. The Sage English directed visuals were dedicated to Bronx teen, Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz, who tragically lost his life outside of a bodega this past June and sparked a national outcry for legislation to require small businesses to protect children in danger on their property.

Fontane told Hypebeast, “To me, the bodega always represented a hub for the community… but it also embodies the spirit of the hustle and grind. The owner of the bodega is one of the first true businessmen you meet growing up in the hood.” “Bodega” is the second video off of Mir’s latest EP release, Macaroni Tony, after the release of his “New Friends Ft. Kodi Shane” visuals. Be sure to look out for new music from Mir Fontane this winter.
