The accomplished actor, Zach Braff recently sat down for an interview in which he talked about love, life and technology.
Zach Braff has been through not one but many rough patches. But he has hung in there and emerged at the other end unharmed. This struggling actor began his journey at a tender age.
And it was not until he reached adulthood that he got his first chance at success. But Zach is a hard worker who simply refuses to give in. He funded his movie “Wish I Was Here” on Kickstarter.
And he had been heckled by Twitterbugs who are downright nasty in cyberspace. Finally, he has a whole list of his favorite applications and they contain some pretty cool samples.
"I learned that you never give up and not to listen to naysayers, because everyone said it wouldn't work and that it would be humiliating and that it never works for a new title," said Zach Braff.
"And then when it was funded in 48 hours, the Internet went crazy, opining for or against it. It was really exciting, because a lot of the things that I've accomplished in my life that I'm most proud of were preceded by people saying that it would never work."
Zach’s project on Kickstarter titled “Wish I Was Here” attracted a lot of traffic. There were many who dissed his efforts. But finally he won by a majority and in fact the CEO of Kickstarter commended him for popularizing the site.
After Zach’s attempt in the movie “Garden State” bombed, he finally made it in “Scrubs”. It was here that his success line really began to become more and more visible.
He did some pretty hot love scenes with Kate Hudson and admits that she was already on friendly terms with him so these intimate shots were not exactly an uncomfortable deal.
Zach comes from a very religious background. Growing up an orthodox Jew, he had his conflicts and rebelled against the conservative upbringing.
Today although he stays in touch with his dad and Jewish culture in general, Zach does not pay attention to each and every one of the laws and rules of his native religion.
"That story that I tell about blowing my dad's mind by saying on my bar mitzvah, "If I'm a man, then I want a cheeseburger," is totally true," said Braff. "We (Zach Braff and his elder brother) were force-fed the religion heavily and didn't really take to it. I identify as Jewish and love the culture and the humor and so many things. My brother and I both felt the same way, so that was the jumping-off point. We were given this, but it didn't r
And this is one actor who does not like to write his name in the search engine of Google. The mean commentary on the social sites really gets to him sometimes. Why smolder in anger over cruel remarks by perfect strangers on the Internet, says Zach.
Finally, he has a few applications that he likes despite the annoyance of intrusions by trolls whose only solution is “Don’t Feed the Trolls”. They include: Instagram, Reddit, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. Phew! What a dude!
