do you want to be viewed as?
I dont really want to be viewed as the common model. I want
to open doors for kids. I dont want people to say oh
he has a handsome face, thats not me at all, theirs
more to me than that. Im not the type of guy thats going
to drive around showing off all of his money, all that bling
bling. Their are so many things going on in the world right
now, their are people starving and dying througout the world, if
I have anything, half of it goes to charity. I want to be thought
of as the man who cares.
Ten thousand years from now when aliens land on the planet and their
looking at old websites and books and they see Tyrone Edmond, what
do you want them to see?
I want them to see a kid who has been through so much but was able
to turn his life around to something positive, and make the way
easier for alot of people. You know the minute that some people
become famous life changes, and they begin to feel that they are
higher than the average 9 to 5 person. Im not like that, I
will never change. Im the same heart and I will remain to
be so, because life is to short I dont have time for that,
their are more important things to concentrate on.
me and idea of your normal day
In the morning when I get up, the first thing that I do is drink
a tall glass of water, and then I dont eat until about 10:30
11:00. I then go to a gym and do about 200 sit ups.
Yeah, I dont do anything too heavy because I dont want
to get too big. And I also read alot of books. Ive been doing
alot of research on the AIDS epidemic in africa, and I tend to watch
alot of movies. Thats pretty much my day.
What are some of your favorite movies and books? For the ladies
out there who want to know what Tyrone Edmond is all about
Well I dont want kids to think that this is one of the best
movies out there, but its one of the movies that I always
watch, they call it a thug movie, Scarface, I love that
movie. If you go to my house you gotta watch Scarface. I also like
How Stella Got her Grove Back, my man Taye Diggs doing his thing.
Are Some Books that you like to read?
I read alot of french books and their mostly love stories. I like
stories that show black people in a positive light. not showing
them standing on a corner hustlin but rather making something
Whats your love life like now?
Im single now, I recently got out of a four year relationship.
She just recently went back to school. Her parents basically governed
her life. They made all of her descisions for her. I will always
love her and I hope that maybe one or two years from now when she
has grown more that we could maybe get back together. I dont
want to push her, I told her one day if shes ready and Im
not taken that I will be their for her.
What are you concentrating on now?
Right now Im trying to focus on my acting career. Ive
done acting in the past and Ive enjoyed myself. I have been
given several scripts but their kind of ruff. Im looking for
a positive character. I dont want to be perpetraited as a
thug. If thats the only way Im going to be able to make
it as an actor, to take these negative roles,then I guess Im
not going to make it. But I feel their are alot of roles out their
I just have to be patient.
