I've been watching your TV show. I'm 19 00:01:32.340 --> 00:01:36.810 here TV Color Confessions, and I absolutely love it and I had know all 20 00:01:36.849 --> 00:01:40.129 about you, but I want my guest to hear from you about you. 21 00:01:40.409 --> 00:01:44.569 So tell me a little bit about your life. Well, my name is 22 00:01:44.609 --> 00:01:49.079 Angela Jackson. I've been in the business for thirteen years now, seems like 23 00:01:49.200 --> 00:01:53.959 forever. Now I'm trying to get it to the mainstream acting world. It's 24 00:01:55.000 --> 00:01:59.120 been an interesting two years, but things are going pretty well on this. 25 00:01:59.280 --> 00:02:02.590 You know, excited to start a new chapter in my career. So tell 26 00:02:02.629 --> 00:02:07.629 us a bit about color confessions and how you got involved in the project. 27 00:02:07.310 --> 00:02:12.949 What kind of confession is based off of D White o'neils book? This is 28 00:02:12.990 --> 00:02:15.379 loosely based, us to say. It's more of a horror aspect put into 29 00:02:15.419 --> 00:02:20.379 it because they here TV wanted to go on side with Halloween, you know, 30 00:02:20.500 --> 00:02:24.659 in October being released. It was an interest I had the audition for, 31 00:02:24.819 --> 00:02:29.259 so I simply know audition tape. I'm it was really interesting, really 32 00:02:29.379 --> 00:02:34.530 fine to be trust something new. The pastor. I've playing the character of 33 00:02:34.729 --> 00:02:38.490 Clinton and it's really, really interesting. It was really fun working with season 34 00:02:38.610 --> 00:02:44.129 actors, you know, because for me this was totally totally new and very 35 00:02:44.250 --> 00:02:46.400 nerves rating. But it was fun to feed off the energy, you know, 36 00:02:47.360 --> 00:02:51.280 these season actors. And it was, you know too, about two 37 00:02:51.319 --> 00:02:53.560 weeks. It was like really, really quick, but it was really, 38 00:02:53.639 --> 00:02:58.000 really fun just to be on said doing something new and, you know, 39 00:02:58.159 --> 00:03:01.349 not performing as seeing the sex scene for the first time. Has Acting always 40 00:03:01.430 --> 00:03:07.590 been one of your goals? I honestly know it wasn't. Until I donet 41 00:03:07.629 --> 00:03:10.789 to the industry. I really just wanted to try something new. As far 42 00:03:10.789 --> 00:03:15.500 as you know, I'm playing different characters. I never really grew up wanting 43 00:03:15.539 --> 00:03:17.139 to be an actor. I just think I got got bit by the above 44 00:03:17.699 --> 00:03:23.539 belong I stay inside of the built industry. What were your career goals as 45 00:03:23.539 --> 00:03:27.250 you were growing out? Honestly, I wanted to be a police officer. 46 00:03:27.689 --> 00:03:31.729 I went to Florida State University Major and criminal justice, and that was I 47 00:03:31.810 --> 00:03:35.689 saw myself as then, you know, a police officer, and I really 48 00:03:35.729 --> 00:03:38.849 fought. My brother is a cop, was a cop, so it was 49 00:03:38.889 --> 00:03:42.639 like one of those things. Is Not following in his footsteps because he didn't 50 00:03:42.639 --> 00:03:45.280 want to be a cop. You know, something I always inspired to be 51 00:03:46.000 --> 00:03:49.719 was a cop. It wasn't until, you know, black lives matter movement 52 00:03:50.199 --> 00:03:53.479 kind of open my eyes about what was going on and also seeing what he 53 00:03:53.599 --> 00:03:57.189 was going through. Me In a black police officer there I just didn't resing 54 00:03:57.349 --> 00:04:01.110 myself wanting to put up with any of that or going down that route and 55 00:04:01.430 --> 00:04:05.629 I think I was having just more success and more fun being in that, 56 00:04:05.830 --> 00:04:10.819 know, in industry, no free travel and just reading great people all the 57 00:04:10.900 --> 00:04:14.659 time and it's having fun, I'll set. So I really wanted to be 58 00:04:14.780 --> 00:04:18.379 as successful as I was as a poor model. One thing I'm hearing is 59 00:04:18.459 --> 00:04:21.819 something we talked about on this podcast a lot, and is that dreams can 60 00:04:21.899 --> 00:04:25.889 change. So it sounds like you wanted to be a police officer and then 61 00:04:25.930 --> 00:04:29.889 you got into adult acting and now into TV acting. So tell us about 62 00:04:29.889 --> 00:04:32.290 the moment that you made the decision that you wanted to transition from a police 63 00:04:32.329 --> 00:04:35.610 officer to an actor, as I was going to call it, though you 64 00:04:35.689 --> 00:04:42.000 know, I apply to several companies in a point industry and I still wasn't 65 00:04:42.040 --> 00:04:45.639 something I saw myself doing for too long. It was just quick and easy 66 00:04:45.680 --> 00:04:47.439 money. But as I go older and I was, like I said, 67 00:04:47.480 --> 00:04:50.920 I saw my broad going through. I saw the climate, you know, 68 00:04:51.680 --> 00:04:57.670 in America as far as cops and just I mean the passion that that I 69 00:04:57.750 --> 00:05:00.029 go with one to by plice officer making a change. It is really just 70 00:05:00.149 --> 00:05:03.310 feel about. And so, as far as my goals, I just really 71 00:05:03.389 --> 00:05:08.939 wanted to take that and focus it somewhere else and I think, and you 72 00:05:09.019 --> 00:05:11.699 know, you could still in the train out, I wanted always make a 73 00:05:11.740 --> 00:05:15.819 change within the industry to have anybody, especially anyone that's no man of color, 74 00:05:16.339 --> 00:05:19.980 to have an easier route than I had when I first got into it, 75 00:05:20.689 --> 00:05:25.410 you know, as far as treatment and pay gaps and all that stuff. 76 00:05:25.810 --> 00:05:28.810 And so for me I would come to advocate, so to speak, 77 00:05:28.850 --> 00:05:32.410 of trying to better off the industry for mostly for just man of color. 78 00:05:32.970 --> 00:05:36.600 I have a few friends and adults entertainment and I know that it's very hard 79 00:05:36.680 --> 00:05:41.240 work and I'm sure, just as in any industry, as an individual of 80 00:05:41.360 --> 00:05:44.639 color, you probably deal with a lot of B as. Can you talk 81 00:05:44.759 --> 00:05:47.240 about some of your experiences that have led you to be the advocate that you 82 00:05:47.360 --> 00:05:51.029 are today? Well, you know when I first got into it is like 83 00:05:51.110 --> 00:05:54.790 two thousand and eight, I believe, late two thousand and eight, early 84 00:05:54.829 --> 00:05:58.990 two thousand and nine, and you know, the whole narrative, the stereotypes 85 00:05:59.069 --> 00:06:02.389 of black subs any kind of you know, role or kind of seeing. 86 00:06:02.589 --> 00:06:06.060 You know, I was going go any of my costars are doing. It 87 00:06:06.220 --> 00:06:11.980 was always based off of a stereotype of African American miles. The more I 88 00:06:12.060 --> 00:06:14.620 did it, the more guilt I felt, you know, playing it, 89 00:06:14.779 --> 00:06:17.540 you know, playing it to that, because for me, leaving an army 90 00:06:17.569 --> 00:06:20.930 bread, you know, I'm from all over. So I one thing I'm 91 00:06:20.970 --> 00:06:24.129 not as a book. It is nothing wrong with being a book. If 92 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:28.129 that's who you are, that's the if that's truth, go for but I 93 00:06:28.209 --> 00:06:31.129 think, you know, we are so much more than just one kind of 94 00:06:31.610 --> 00:06:35.399 you know, stereotype or you know, I'm kind of people and I really 95 00:06:35.439 --> 00:06:40.920 wanted to cross over. I really wanted to have my catalog of work be 96 00:06:41.079 --> 00:06:44.600 very diverse, because that's why I am as a person, and so I 97 00:06:44.680 --> 00:06:47.829 wanted to showcase black man in a positive light and not, you know, 98 00:06:47.949 --> 00:06:54.790 and it's very negative, stereotypical way. I imagine that the porn industry is 99 00:06:54.949 --> 00:06:58.990 similar to the drag industry and that when you're first starting out, you're just 100 00:06:59.149 --> 00:07:01.379 trying to get your name out there, so you'll take anything. But do 101 00:07:01.500 --> 00:07:05.899 you remember a point in your career where you decided that you no longer wanted 102 00:07:05.939 --> 00:07:10.660 to play the roles that you were given and started having convert stations about the 103 00:07:10.699 --> 00:07:15.610 roles you wanted, and how would those conversations received? Yeah, I remember 104 00:07:15.649 --> 00:07:19.689 I was doing a photo shoot and one of the outfits they wanted me to 105 00:07:19.769 --> 00:07:27.170 wear was a jumpsuit, like a prison jumpsuit, and looking back, you 106 00:07:27.250 --> 00:07:30.040 know, at the pictures, I'm like this is just this is this is 107 00:07:30.079 --> 00:07:31.879 it for me. You know, it was like one of those moments where, 108 00:07:32.040 --> 00:07:35.240 you know, the strong folk the camel's back. I was like I 109 00:07:35.360 --> 00:07:40.879 cannot play into this trope of, you know, a black man being seen 110 00:07:41.000 --> 00:07:44.199 in a prison jumpsuit. It was just so blatant. Is like, you 111 00:07:44.279 --> 00:07:46.949 know what, now was the time to advocate for myself so later I can 112 00:07:46.949 --> 00:07:51.750 advocate for others. It was one of those moments where the company was sponsored. 113 00:07:51.790 --> 00:07:56.029 Before you know, we had to sit down to talk and eventually I 114 00:07:56.149 --> 00:07:59.500 was able to be released. It was just time to move on. It's 115 00:07:59.540 --> 00:08:03.019 time to cross over and to be a in to go to a company that 116 00:08:03.139 --> 00:08:07.740 would present men of color in a positive light. As far as you know, 117 00:08:07.980 --> 00:08:11.620 the how would set up, as far as locations, as far as 118 00:08:11.620 --> 00:08:15.449 the quality of work, and I think that, you know, we slowly 119 00:08:15.490 --> 00:08:18.689 made a change with, you know, in the past five years of showcase 120 00:08:18.769 --> 00:08:22.850 in black man and all kinds of roles. You know, we don't have 121 00:08:22.050 --> 00:08:24.889 to be the plumber that shows up, you know, because someone's host fool. 122 00:08:26.089 --> 00:08:28.040 Need to be the owner and someone else is a plumber. saw it 123 00:08:28.079 --> 00:08:31.720 up and playing that part, you know, or I'm playing a movie start, 124 00:08:31.799 --> 00:08:35.000 someone else is there audition. You know, we can. I want 125 00:08:35.000 --> 00:08:37.759 to own a home. I don't want to see the time thereto as a 126 00:08:37.840 --> 00:08:41.549 we're always to help. So that's what I've been trying to do for the 127 00:08:41.590 --> 00:08:45.590 past several years now. So let me ask you, what are you most 128 00:08:45.669 --> 00:08:48.029 proud of in terms of progress you've seen in the industry, and where would 129 00:08:48.029 --> 00:08:52.789 you like to see the industry go? I'm most proud of at the gay 130 00:08:52.870 --> 00:08:58.860 begins when not even realizing until I was actually there that no men of color 131 00:08:58.019 --> 00:09:03.259 have no gay menical ahead everyone. That's actor category, and I think, 132 00:09:03.299 --> 00:09:07.940 I believe the gay begins said, or the to that point was going for 133 00:09:07.100 --> 00:09:11.929 twenty years now. I was I don't know I should have been shocked about 134 00:09:11.929 --> 00:09:15.730 it, but I was. And so for me, I didn't think I 135 00:09:15.809 --> 00:09:18.850 start a chance, you know, giving who was also nominated. So once 136 00:09:18.889 --> 00:09:24.440 my name was called, I really wanted to take that moment to showcase and 137 00:09:24.720 --> 00:09:28.840 to the pay that I was sitting at was many men of color, and 138 00:09:28.879 --> 00:09:31.200 I really want to showcase down to say this is not this for me, 139 00:09:31.840 --> 00:09:35.519 this is biviitally, this is for all of us. is a step forward, 140 00:09:35.639 --> 00:09:37.590 this is, you know, having a door be cracked open a little 141 00:09:37.629 --> 00:09:41.710 bit and for me, now that I have a bit of a larger platform, 142 00:09:41.830 --> 00:09:46.149 want to use that platform to advocate for groups who are marginalize, Trans 143 00:09:46.230 --> 00:09:50.549 Community, especially the Trans Community of color. That was one of the issues 144 00:09:50.590 --> 00:09:52.779 that I have. But you know, if you'll do a little bit, 145 00:09:52.820 --> 00:09:58.139 but the black lives matter matter movement is that there's not enough tension focus on 146 00:09:58.659 --> 00:10:01.500 our trans girls the color and they getting murdered. This is it seems to 147 00:10:01.580 --> 00:10:05.100 me it's only black male lives matter. As far as I'm so sorry, 148 00:10:05.139 --> 00:10:09.850 because they shoes aren't really dance, Spot Life, on our trans community, 149 00:10:11.409 --> 00:10:16.610 fishing on PLC's well, any way that I can advocate and use my platform 150 00:10:16.330 --> 00:10:20.090 to voice issues and to make you know to try to have a conversation and 151 00:10:20.169 --> 00:10:24.240 dialog so we can make me changes. I do. I'm so glad that 152 00:10:24.399 --> 00:10:28.600 you brought that up. I do have a lot of these conversations in my 153 00:10:28.679 --> 00:10:33.000 personal life, but I've not yet brought it up on the podcast. There 154 00:10:33.159 --> 00:10:37.629 is a unique experience in being a person of color. There is a separate, 155 00:10:37.669 --> 00:10:41.549 unique experience by identifying as Queer. Then, in this situation as we're 156 00:10:41.590 --> 00:10:46.590 talking about, there is another separate and unique experience by being trans. And 157 00:10:46.710 --> 00:10:52.139 I say experience because not everything is bad or negative, and I personally think 158 00:10:52.139 --> 00:10:56.620 that Black Trans people are some of the most beautiful, intelligent and innovative people 159 00:10:56.620 --> 00:11:03.179 we have in the world today. But we also know that everybody's experience comes 160 00:11:03.500 --> 00:11:07.610 with its own struggle and some people, for example you and I, are 161 00:11:07.929 --> 00:11:11.450 experiencing two or more of those struggles from these unique experiences, and that is 162 00:11:11.490 --> 00:11:16.970 what makes advocacy so important and I think it's great that you're doing that. 163 00:11:18.250 --> 00:11:22.399 Do you feel that people of Color in the entertainment industry have a long way 164 00:11:22.440 --> 00:11:26.679 to go in terms of equality and fair treatment. Absolutely. I mean are 165 00:11:26.879 --> 00:11:33.110 society mirrors everything. So it's largest, it's a bigger question in that because, 166 00:11:33.389 --> 00:11:37.750 you know, porn is really just the mirror of other country. You 167 00:11:37.789 --> 00:11:39.789 know, in its country we deal with a lot of racial issues. So 168 00:11:39.950 --> 00:11:43.389 it's going to always seek them toil every sect of entertainment. And for me 169 00:11:43.509 --> 00:11:48.899 I've always tried to keep politics out of form because for me I think it's 170 00:11:50.259 --> 00:11:54.539 entertainment and you don't come there to watch porn to be reminded of what's going 171 00:11:54.580 --> 00:11:58.659 on outside of you just come there get your rocks off and going about your 172 00:11:58.700 --> 00:12:01.450 day. So I've never I try not to mix into two and try to 173 00:12:01.970 --> 00:12:07.289 really become harder to be honest, especially, you know, since last summer 174 00:12:07.850 --> 00:12:13.009 the resurgence of black lives matters hard to really sit on the on the sideline, 175 00:12:13.009 --> 00:12:15.450 and I say that you have to say something. Well, you are 176 00:12:15.529 --> 00:12:18.200 fall of the problems. We have a long way to go. We do 177 00:12:18.399 --> 00:12:22.200 have a long way to go, but it's getting better set about stuff. 178 00:12:22.360 --> 00:12:26.559 Sometimes we take steps backwards, but I think for the most part where we're 179 00:12:26.600 --> 00:12:31.629 making headway. So you are the first blackmail to invest actor at the gay 180 00:12:31.750 --> 00:12:35.710 B ends is the gay the ends and award ceremony for the entire adult entertainment 181 00:12:35.750 --> 00:12:41.590 industry. You just for the the Ky five of things. So it's like 182 00:12:41.750 --> 00:12:46.980 the obscers of the world, spoil for the Gay Commatian far the gay awesome. 183 00:12:46.139 --> 00:12:50.779 Do they have other award shows? Yes, we have the at end, 184 00:12:50.899 --> 00:12:54.139 which is take it for the straight quite relations, and then gave the 185 00:12:54.179 --> 00:13:00.129 Games. May they have the drabby. The rabbies are like the not the 186 00:13:00.210 --> 00:13:05.210 phony, but the any believe. So this didn't give you, you know, 187 00:13:05.250 --> 00:13:09.210 visuals just it's gotten better. We've had a category called it is called 188 00:13:09.330 --> 00:13:13.080 ethnic ethnic category. Got Rid of that. While the step for it, 189 00:13:13.600 --> 00:13:16.519 it's just helped will to be set right. could be separated like that. 190 00:13:16.519 --> 00:13:20.879 You know, it's like one of those things some people advocate for like, 191 00:13:20.039 --> 00:13:24.200 you know, if you don't have that category, then there's no way that 192 00:13:24.840 --> 00:13:26.149 you're going to go again. Someone was white. So, but we got 193 00:13:26.230 --> 00:13:31.590 rid of it and things have gotten better and sad that recognition for all of 194 00:13:31.710 --> 00:13:37.429 us, regardless of the color, is amazing to be recognized and seeing by 195 00:13:37.470 --> 00:13:39.509 your tears is amazing. Now it's not going to you know, going to 196 00:13:39.590 --> 00:13:45.659 you any higher pay, unfortunately, but you still have that they recognition, 197 00:13:46.179 --> 00:13:50.419 which is my because it is. It's hard work what we do and it 198 00:13:50.580 --> 00:13:54.500 is nothing sexy about making form at all. Would higher pay be something you 199 00:13:54.620 --> 00:13:58.289 want to see improve? Would that be an except? Well, you know, 200 00:13:58.610 --> 00:14:03.450 with only things and just for friends is become vio. Now aren't really 201 00:14:03.490 --> 00:14:09.360 hiring the sloopers anymore. You know, it's a battle between the fan work 202 00:14:09.480 --> 00:14:13.080 and in the studios. So you have a lot of models down wood that 203 00:14:13.279 --> 00:14:18.360 link for less whatever hers. Those who are will spend years the game. 204 00:14:18.519 --> 00:14:24.240 We aren't. You know, they're making so now is this kind of it's 205 00:14:24.240 --> 00:14:28.190 kind of hurting as far as we're getting paid right now because of the longly 206 00:14:28.269 --> 00:14:31.870 fans and stuff like that. So it's just it was getting better. I'm 207 00:14:31.909 --> 00:14:37.590 not sure all the whole thing has completely shifted, especially since covid you know, 208 00:14:37.750 --> 00:14:41.179 everyone is slowly coming back to work, but some of us are are 209 00:14:41.259 --> 00:14:45.980 not really making as much as we want, swear, or we aren't being 210 00:14:46.139 --> 00:14:50.299 signed to exclusive contract to. Well, you just it's become too expensive to 211 00:14:50.419 --> 00:14:56.649 some companies. So it's become a bit of a vicey situation within the industry 212 00:14:56.690 --> 00:15:01.370 right now. You are signed to a studio. Is that right? Yeah, 213 00:15:01.929 --> 00:15:05.210 in time, about like a studio versus only fans. What would you 214 00:15:05.250 --> 00:15:09.279 say the pros and cons are of each? Well, my only I'll say 215 00:15:09.360 --> 00:15:13.600 one only cons is now you have some guys making a couple of videos of 216 00:15:13.720 --> 00:15:18.759 call themselves foreign starts. It's a sense it's got about the flap of the 217 00:15:18.799 --> 00:15:22.830 face. I really want I get me take so much work and, you 218 00:15:22.909 --> 00:15:26.669 know, dedication and a lot. You know, I would think, to 219 00:15:28.710 --> 00:15:33.389 have that stample you being like a bona five porn stars that people know, 220 00:15:33.950 --> 00:15:37.379 you know, as supposed to, you know, being only fans, not 221 00:15:37.539 --> 00:15:41.659 seem only say it on it. But I think that you want if in 222 00:15:41.700 --> 00:15:43.100 the industry we have to do both. I think it's, you know, 223 00:15:43.259 --> 00:15:48.419 as far as want to quality being, you know, Pant Studio and I 224 00:15:48.500 --> 00:15:52.610 think only fans. It's more of that behind the scenes type, more intimate 225 00:15:54.090 --> 00:15:56.450 by think that fans love. So I think you could do both. I 226 00:15:56.610 --> 00:16:00.730 think you know, studios and only fans ca call is if you just got 227 00:16:00.850 --> 00:16:04.480 to figure it out and we have to at least be more respect put on. 228 00:16:04.639 --> 00:16:08.000 You know, it's the name of a porn star nowadays, but if 229 00:16:08.039 --> 00:16:11.759 all good you know, we're all making our money. You're all trying to 230 00:16:11.799 --> 00:16:14.759 host them and doing best we can right now. I know that when it 231 00:16:14.879 --> 00:16:18.200 comes to drag, now that there's drag race and drags a little bit more 232 00:16:18.240 --> 00:16:22.470 mainstream, anybody who steps in the Wigan heels thinks that they can be a 233 00:16:22.710 --> 00:16:26.110 professional drag queen, and I mean that's just not how it works. Right 234 00:16:26.590 --> 00:16:32.309 nothing great happens overnight. So I definitely understand where you're coming from in terms 235 00:16:32.350 --> 00:16:36.379 of your own career. When you think about people that want to be successful, 236 00:16:36.620 --> 00:16:40.379 maybe not necessarily as an adult film star, but just that, whatever 237 00:16:40.419 --> 00:16:44.539 they may want to do. What would your top two pieces of advice be 238 00:16:44.779 --> 00:16:48.690 for people who want to follow their dreams? I will say do the research. 239 00:16:51.409 --> 00:16:52.809 Anything you want to do, you know. For me, obviously I 240 00:16:52.850 --> 00:16:59.809 have more experience in being in in indulge industry. I know how mentally and 241 00:16:59.970 --> 00:17:04.720 physically harmful and hard it can be as far as that goes, but I 242 00:17:04.839 --> 00:17:07.880 think you have a passion for it. You have a passion or anything, 243 00:17:08.319 --> 00:17:14.880 go for it. You know your research ch and don't ever get the scouraged. 244 00:17:15.599 --> 00:17:19.150 Things don't, you know, happen overnight. Just stay focused and just 245 00:17:19.309 --> 00:17:23.109 really surround yourself also with good people. So Ryan set of people who are 246 00:17:23.349 --> 00:17:26.470 who are a little more successful to you are right now. So, yeah, 247 00:17:26.630 --> 00:17:30.980 you know, some way of getting advised and something to aspire to as 248 00:17:30.019 --> 00:17:34.380 well. You don't surmid yourself for people who are very staggering where I'm going 249 00:17:34.420 --> 00:17:37.579 anywhere. I don't care if they are your best friends. Sometimes a friend 250 00:17:37.660 --> 00:17:41.099 is ships for a season, it's not for a lifetime. So you have 251 00:17:41.220 --> 00:17:45.009 to really know what you get. You really have to buckle down and focus 252 00:17:45.089 --> 00:17:48.690 on what you really want to do and just stay focused. That's great advice. 253 00:17:49.210 --> 00:17:52.130 So we talked about where you've been. Tell us a little bit about 254 00:17:52.130 --> 00:17:56.369 what's next for you and where do you want to go? I want to 255 00:17:56.529 --> 00:18:00.160 get more roles. I wanted to start stretch my my acting tops, so 256 00:18:00.359 --> 00:18:04.119 to speak, and be challenged more so my next chapter. But I did 257 00:18:04.279 --> 00:18:07.240 I want I want a new challenge, you know, I'm want to try 258 00:18:07.319 --> 00:18:11.519 something different.
