Interview: Bradley Constant on playing Dwayne Johnson on NBC's Young Rock
Actor Bradley Constant recently joined host Elias in the cave. Bradley stars as as 15-year-old Dwayne Johnson during his formative high school years “kicking puberty’s ass” in the new NBC comedy series “Young Rock,” which focuses on different chapters of Dwayne Johnson’s life. From growing up in a strong and resilient family, to being surrounded by the wild characters of his professional wrestling family, to playing football at the University of Miami, the show will explore the crazy rollercoaster that has shaped Dwayne into the man he is today and the larger-than-life characters he’s met along the way. We talk about the importance of family, career, and so much more!
Bradley was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where he began taking classes and pursuing acting at the age of 12. From a very early age, Bradley was determined to reach success in the entertainment business so he convinced his mom to move him to New York City where he would study and begin to gain experience in the industry. The tough environment and fast-paced productivity of the big city prepared him for an even bigger move to Los Angeles, where he is now based.
When Bradley isn’t acting, he is an avid runner and has tallied up a total of 5 marathons thus far. He believes that the challenge gives him the mental strength he has needed to push forward in his career and life. In fact, he ran a marathon the day before his screen test for “Young Rock,” which helped get him in the zone! In his spare time, he also enjoys gaming, bass fishing and golfing. Bradley is a die- hard sports fan as well and follows Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson as well as such teams as the Indianapolis Colts, Miami Heat, New York Yankees and, of course, the University of Alabama. Bradley is also a self-professed “Star Wars” nerd and is a huge fan of the stories, characters and lore in the TV shows and movies.
