Welcome to How They Did It: the podcast that gets you the real story behind the success. Host Darbi Worley interviews extraordinary people about this thing called life and how to do it better.

In this episode, Darbi talks with actor Curtiss Cook.

Curtiss’ first brush with the stage was at the age of 10, and years later the acting bug was in full force when Curtiss landed the lead role in his high school performance of Carousel with the Muse Machine. This experience led to countless high school plays, a career at the famed Dayton Contemporary Dance Company and a full scholarship to Mount View Theatre School in London England, where he truly honed his craft with some of the greatest acting minds of the english theatre. After completion of his studies he headed to New York City and has not looked back.

Curtiss’ resume boasts two Broadway shows, countless guest stars on such shows as House of Cards, The Good Wife, Person of Interest, Law & Order, the Sopranos, and Rescue Me, just to name a few. Curtiss is also a commercial favorite. He has also worked with some of the biggest Hollywood names in the business: Nicole Kidman, Sean Penn, Andy Garcia, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sir Ben Kingsley, Richard Gere, Tim Roth, the late Sydney Pollack and the great Martin Scorsese.
