Starting A New Life and Finding Your True Purpose with "Empire" Actor, Charles D. Clark.
Actor Charles D. Clark @charlesdclark1980 suffered a major loss as a child, when his father passed away from a horrible accident. Continually searching for that father figure, Charles found solidarity in the streets, which landed him in prison for eight years. It was in prison, he changed his life around and is now a working actor with a recurring role on empire. Charles D. Clark’s first acting role was pretending to be his Father, who had passed away years prior, to his dying Grandma who’s memory was failing her. Very inspirational path Charles took to get to where he is today. Very inspirational talk on how we can completely change our lives around for the better.
