In this episode I’m joined by American actor, model and singer Josh Henderson. 

Josh recently got the role as the heart throb male lead in the new hit series ‘The Arrangement’ where he offers an actress the role of a lifetime, but only if she agrees to sign a marriage contract with him. 

Also starring on hit shows like “Dallas” and “Desperate Housewives”, he’s seen a lot of Hollywood and tells me what it’s really like living and working there. 

From paparazzi, politics and the importance of knowing the right people, Josh explains all the ins and outs of the business. 

With the ongoing pandemic shows are being cancelled left, right and centre, and being an actor right now is not a secure career. 

Fortunately for Josh, he also has his music and he explains how although the pandemic has affected him he’s simply shifted his focus more towards that side of his life. 

An avid cook since he was young the talk then moves to food, and our favourite places to eat all across America…

“Like everything in life, it’s all relationship-based and politics. Hopefully, you can find a way to navigate yourself into those politics but not lose yourself at the same time.” – Josh Henderson
