Meet Daniel Bostic: A Young Conservative Actor and Model

by Anna Maria Hoffman 
Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Daniel Bostic, a conservative actor and model who also worked in the U.S. House of Representatives a few years ago. He not only shared his wonderful background with us, but also has sage advice for young conservatives who are considering a career in the entertainment industry and how the conservative movement could better use film to effectively spread its message.Daniel Bostic Headshot

AMH: Tell us about your background and why you decided to pursue modeling and acting.

DB: Growing up I was always the shy kid in school. I hated any kind of public speaking and would work hard to stay under the radar. So you can imagine how mortified I was when, as a 6th grader, I was told my mom had signed me up for a drama class. I begged and begged not to go but my mom knew me better than I knew myself and refused to reverse her decision. It took some time, but I fell in love with acting and the process of working on a production. I continued on to train for years in private and group settings. The more I trained and did projects, the more I realized film was really where my heart was at.  In my senior year of high school, I was asked to work for then-Congressman Tim Scott, so I moved to Washington, DC and took a spot on staff with his office. A couple years later, I decided I wanted to go back and finish my education, so I started attending college while continuing to pursue work in entertainment. Since then, I have been in a couple films (some bigger than others) and have been privileged to work with some awesome companies doing modeling and promotional-type work. I’ve also stayed active in politics, advising various congressional and senate races. I guess that’s where I find myself today!

AMH: What are your thoughts on the use of film in the conservative movement? How can conservatives be more effective with film to be more impactful?

DB: There is no doubt we find ourselves living in a fast-paced and visually saturated society. It is incredibly important that conservatives understand that we must harness the power of film to effectively promote our message. I hear many conservatives bemoan the fact that entertainment media frequently belittles virtue while promoting immoral concepts, yet few conservatives actually seem to do anything about it. We are screaming about a problem yet not offering up any tangible solution. Film and visual media will continue to exist whether we like it or not – so why not use them to our advantage? Let’s produce Hollywood-quality entertaining and enjoyable films that extoll virtue and family values.
