SHIFTING TABLES WITH VINCENT M. WARD
Jackie Watson, the French reporter, recently had the opportunity to sit down and talk one-on-one with the very charismatic and dreamy-eyed actor, Mr. Vincent M. Ward.
Vincent M. Ward is an American actor who is best known for playing a bodyguard in many television shows, as well as his recurring roles as Bo on ‘The Starter Wife’ and as Oscar on the hit television show ‘The Walking Dead.’ He is also known for his work in the TV series ‘Everybody Hates Chris’ (2005–2009) and on films ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ (2001), ‘Traffic’ (2000) and ‘Bringing Down the House’ (2003).
Formerly from Ohio, the 6’4” tall Vincent is a multi-talented ex-basketball player who’s resume also includes modeling and dancing.
The charming actor discussed many topics with Jackie including his journey to stardom which began with films such as ‘Traffic’ and “Ocean’s Eleven.” According to Vincent, his career didn’t actually take flight until he landed the role of Oscar in “The Walking Dead.”
Apart from being an exceptional actor, Vincent is a wonderful man of integrity. He refuses to compromise or jeopardize his Christian beliefs and family values for an acting role. He states firmly that he will not accept ‘something strange for a bit of change,’ as he serves the ‘creator not the creation’ (Jackie’s words). That is truly an admirable quality.
Additionally, Vincent spoke briefly about his dream acting role and what he would like to change about television. He also listed the biggest misconception that people have about him. Due to his muscular and large build, people perceive him as being a ‘mean’ individual. But they could not be farther from the truth, as Vincent is a ‘teddy bear’ at heart.
Lastly, Jackie throws some ‘speed talk’ questions at the actor and he was very quick to answer. Some of the questions included his preference for blondes or brunettes, his favorite animal (dog or cat), his favorite TV show and what movie makes him cry.
