Talented doesn’t even begin to describe Dare Taylor. To catch the attention of people these days, you really need to be multi-faceted, and that’s where Dare Taylor shines. Actress, singer, model, and cosplayer are all ways that Dare showcases her talent. She’s intelligent and has one of the best personalities that you’ll ever come across. It’s a special treat (and honor) to get to know the one and only, Dare Taylor.
You’re so multi-talented: actress, cosplayer, model, and singer. How did you get interested in so many things, and how have you managed to juggle and be good at multiple things?
Dare Taylor: At the age of ten, I was put into dance, figure skating, and pageants all at the same time because I want to try different things and do different things and do different things as a kid. I just have always known practicing multiple talents at once. Obviously, some things have fallen off like I don’t compete anymore in figure skating, and I don’t train in dance anymore. But, as those things sort of subsided, that’s what I learned I actually can sing pretty well and that I’m a pretty good stage performer in acting. Basically, to answer your question, I’ve just always known how to time manage really well and practice the things that I love doing so that way, it doesn’t feel like work to me.
What are you looking to achieve in your various careers?
Dare Taylor: I always hope to model and stay active with an Instagram and YouTube having some sort of way that fans can interact with me. But, I really hope my on-screen acting career takes off a little more. But, as a whole, I just hope to be a well-known person for my many talents.
Your modeling is very impressive. Do you tend to gravitate towards that more than your other interests?
Dare Taylor: First off, thank you! I take a lot of time and work on my body and keep a clean diet in order to look and be in the best shape I can be! Modeling is more of my full-time job right now, so that’s why I post a lot of it on Instagram. Eventually, I want to phase more into acting. I can see why most people would say that modeling is my main talent, but I just don’t post a lot of my singing or acting, but maybe that’ll change soon!
What’s the most challenging aspect of being multi-talented?
Dare Taylor: Scheduling events! I have had so many opportunities for cosplay conventions, poster signings for my modeling, red carpet events for my YouTube channel, and vocal lessons. It’s all very difficult to pick and choose what I attend, but I just try to think of the big picture: which event is really going to set me apart? Which event could I potentially meet other individuals like myself? What’s more important to me at that moment? And sometimes what does it do I think it’s going to be the most fun?
When do you feel the most confident and happy?
Dare Taylor: When I have time to prepare! Some reason I feel the most confident and at my best when I’m planning multiple events in advance and can set goals ahead of time.
Are you inspired or motivated by anything?
Dare Taylor: People. I love seeing my friends succeed, hearing people’s stories, and seeing their dreams come true! I am a firm believer in setting goals and dreams and achieving them.
What’s been the hardest thing that you’ve had to overcome in your life?
Dare Taylor: Honestly, there’s been so many horrible things that happened to me in my life. It would be so difficult to pick one to focus on, but I think regardless of it all, I chose to take something negative that happened to me and spin it into a positive. And I think that’s more important than any story I could tell to answer this question. Bad things happen to good people, but it’s what the good people do with the bad situation that make them outstanding people.
Do you have any regrets, or would you do anything differently in any of your careers?
Dare Taylor: I think a lot of people would think my nude art modeling would be a regret of mine, but it’s honestly what got me discovered! There was an actor on a movie set who suggested to the director that he reach out to cast me in his next film. To this young actor, I’m so grateful because he is the reason I’m going to be in an upcoming movie here in Hollywood! So, I wouldn’t regret anything because every choice we make puts us on a path, and I’m so grateful for this path!
If you could get a message out to millions, what would you say and why?
Dare Taylor: It’s not about how many followers you have; it’s about what you do with your voice! We now live in an era where everybody has a social media platform, and everyone is technically an influencer. Regardless, if you believe it or not, use your voice to better humanity.
What can people expect to see from you in the future?
Dare Taylor: In the future, they should expect to see me on the big screen! I can feel big things are coming and I can’t wait to see what they are!
