In this episode I’m interviewing my very first celebrity! Exciting as that sounds, I didn’t know he was a celebrity when I met him. We just clicked in our thinking about wellbeing and exchanged numbers.
Elijah Rowen is an actor. You may know him from the popular Amazon Prime show Vikings or more recently as Zane in Curfew. Elijah greatly believes that “one should plan for what is difficult while it is easy and to do what is great while it is small.”
Elijah never knew what he wanted to do with his life until he had finished school and seemingly ran out of options, it was then he decided to study acting. After graduating Irish theatre school he decided to give his all to acting and after great struggle and highly unconventional methods, an agent-less Elijah found himself on the set of History’s Vikings; shortly after he landed himself leading roles in other large scale productions. Rowen is determined to use his trajectory to immerse himself to the fullest not only in front of the camera but in the writing, producing, directing and every other element of this many layered industry.
As well as being a great young actor, Elijah is definitely an old soul. He has such an open and grounded outlook on life and being well that I’m inspired by him and the future he will affect for generations to come.
In this show we talk about Self-love and how it applies to men. We discuss what Elijah does in his own life to keep himself well especially in his – often volatile and stressful – industry.
I hope you enjoy this show as much as we did making it.
