<p>Celebrities have different reasons why they developed an interest in the film industry. In an interview with <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzhA0UEN6ro&ab_channel=Variety” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>Variety</a>, Elliott talked about how he got into acting. He became interested in the career when he saw a movie as a kid.</p>

<p>“I used to go to a local theater called the Sequoia. There was a movie called <em>The Creature from the Black Lagoon</em>, and <em>The</em> <em>Creature from the Black Lagoon</em> spoke to me on so many levels,” Elliott explained. “I saw it several times and have really made up my mind. I thought, ‘That’s what I’d like to do.’”</p>

<p>The classic monster movie really inspired Elliott. He also watched plenty of television growing up, especially Western shows. However, the stars did not impress him all that much. As a result, he thought he could get into the TV business as an actor.</p>

<p>Elliott eventually got some theater experience in college. Afterward, he would start getting roles. Instead of watching Westerns, he now stars in them.</p>
