On the Couch with Jose Talite

Jose-Talite-AAR-On-the-CouchWho is Jose Talite?
I’m an Australian-Filipino actor born and bred in Kogarah (NSW). I did a complete 360 in my life going from accountant to technology salesman and now actor. I’m currently attending The Actor’s Pulse where I’m studying the Meisner technique, and I’m set to graduate at the end of 2021. I have a love/hate relationship with cheese and my spirit animal is a golden labrador puppy. In my spare time, I love to sing, lose at chess and play sports.

What would you do differently from what you do now?
I’d be a naturopath/chiropractor or a hypnotherapist.

Who inspires you and why?
My mum, she’s the strongest person I know.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Strive to be the best version of me, everyday.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Europe – you can travel 30 minutes and be in a completely different world… AND THE FOOD! And the Philippines, it’s my home away from home.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
Bar Luca – Best burger in Sydney (or the world).

What are you currently reading?
Think Like a Monk by Jay Shetty.

What are you currently listening to?
Right now I am loving: UK Hip Hop & RnB – Not3s, Stormzy, AJ Tracey, Dave, Burna Boy, The Kid Laroi and William Singe.

Letting go and submitting to the present moment.

What does the future hold for you?
Love, Health, Wealth
