‘Vampire Diaries’ Robert Ri’chard Tells a Story He Learned as a Kid That He Applies to His Acting Career
Acting might have saved Robert Ri’chard’s life.
The Vampire Diaries actor noted, “When I was a kid there was a local acting studio down from my house. I grew up in a rough neighborhood, and the studio was a place where kids could go and get out of the gang-type stuff. I went there and it was the only thing I wanted to do. I shook hands with an acting coach there, Ms. D., and that was the start of my new life. She was a mentor and a powerful person in my life.”
