This actor’s valiant attempt to film a monologue was hilariously thwarted by his mum
Actor Nathan Collins may have a bright future ahead of him in the theatre or on the screen; he has the training, he has the headshots – unfortunately, he also has help from his mum. He recently posted a clip of an attempt to record himself in character, which might have gone more smoothly, were it not for his mum playing the part of Steven Spielberg a little too unconvincingly.
Get yourself a mum who can help you self tape like this pic.twitter.com/sbXtcUgCmP

We’re torn between sympathy for Nathan’s frustration and amusement at each inevitable act of accidental sabotage by his mum, but we’re mostly coming down on the side of amusement. People loved his clip, stopping by with these comments.
This, but with my teenage kids.
Absolutely how it goes, everytime. https://t.co/oMGYL3Y0Mf

After sharing the hilarious footage online, Nathan posted this update:
We would absolutely watch the sh_t out of that. Actor, Jonathan Andrew Hume saw some unplanned potential in the video.
This, in itself, should be a comedy short! 😆. Cut to next week, agent calls: your mum gets the job! 😆😆

He could be onto something.
