Michael Wiles - A History

  1. 1. Michael Wiles - A History After some time building his reputation as an excellent theater actor in San Francisco, Michael Wiles moved to Sacramento, where he works currently as a casting director, musical director, and voice coach. He was recently featured in two national advertisement campaigns, one for Yahoo! Sports, and the other for Foster’s Beer. In only a few short months after he hit “bottom”, Wiles rose anew to finish his studies, earn his BFA in acting, and move to San Francisco to start his successful career as an actor. His professors and fellow students all doubted his ability, but Wiles never did. His time at the Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle was some of the hardest years of his life. He has worked for dozens of theater companies, put on hundreds of shows, and captivated thousands of theater-goers in the process. His immersion in the diverse plots and crises of humanity that the characters find themselves in again and again in the pages of Shakespeare’s plays inspired him to redouble his effort and finish his schooling strong. Michael Wiles brought his old, worn-down copy of the complete works of Shakespeare with him to Seattle From Helena, Montana where he is from, and studied the language, the characters, the plots and the themes of some of the greatest plays ever written to find his way again. Wiles now says that he would never have realized his potential if he hadn’t brought his copy of the Complete Works of Shakespeare with him on his journey from Helena to Seattle. Michael Wiles says that only through dedicating himself to the best playwrights was he able to get through acting school. Wiles looks forward to the future as a still-rising actor. He knows he is no Shakespeare, but everyone could use inspiration and encouragement, no matter where it comes from. He tries to inspire up-and-coming actors the way that Shakespeare inspired him. Since he moved to San Francisco in 1999, Wiles has built a long career from his acting skills he honed under duress in Seattle at the Cornish College of the Arts. Wiles says that he was originally inspired to become an actor because of Shakespeare and that only by re-reading his complete works was he able to finish school. Instead of giving up, which he says he considered, he found solace in the works of one of the greatest writers of the past four hundred years: William Shakespeare.
