In February 2020, I worked on The Matrix Resurrections for 6 long nights as a background actor.
That’s how it felt. The camera rolled point-blank on my face. Keanu and Carrie-Anne at arms length. Lana’s smile after the stunts. I should’ve been paying them, but earned $1245.83 for 64.9 hours of (mostly) waiting around and running.
I’ve been waiting 19 months to talk about it — plus 18 years since the last Matrix. On Friday I’ll know if I escaped the cutting room.
I have dreamed a dream; but now that dream is gone from me.
