Sounds shady..."If I can't be an actor, I'll be a lawyer"

please, be an actor.

Nothing shady about Mark's belief and motivation, we always want something to fall back on because of the unforeable future. Mark is prepared and will likely do both, be an actor and a lawyer. Keep your mafia and your Italian restaurant overseas.

I totally agree. It's called work ethic and unfortunately most people don't capitalize on these opportunities and totally miss the MARK. LOL! Pardon the pun.

Wait till you get to Hollywood, and you'll really feel like you don't belong.

Stick with it, we need more American Indians in show biz. Not ones who claim to be...

Shelby, Great Job dude. Keep reaching for the stars cause life is short and you never know until you've tried it. And yes, you can always come back to Shiprock later in life and open up a production studio or run for Tribal Council.

Many thanks to you all. My son has a goal(S)...a direction in his life and I'm proud of him. As a mother supporting two children in college, it is good to see something of all the hard work coming from my efforts; TIME from traveling to and from auditions & filming, and time taken off from my work, MONEY spent for gas, lodging, meals, photo shoots, etc., SUPPORT & ENCOURAGEMENT for all my children to succeed in life not just for fame and fortune, but for happiness and enjoyment in their daily lives.
With the ever-changing world, you always have to have a back-up plan in everything you do...hence actor/lawyer. Or combine both careers and utilize it to the best of your abilities to help others, which I know he will do. Again, thank you all for your supporting comment.

Hey Shelby!!! You know me and I know you. I know you have the potiential to make it in whatever you want. You have more positive reMARKs than the bad beans in this column. You know how to handle yourself from the negative. Just get a broom, sweep it up, and dispose of it. That's it!!! Keep up the good work....another thing, how much did you get paid? JUST KIDDING!!! Later Son, AT
