“When I got in the game I didn’t have anyone to show me the ropes. I tried almost everything, causing me to waste a lot of money and loose a lot of valuable time. One could get discouraged easily and give up. It could take a lifetime to learn this business without guidance. That’s why I wrote this book; to hopefully encourage all of the lost aspiring actors out there with no one to turn to” said Brooks.

Viewers can remember, Brooks (Michael) met Hanna (Crystal R. Fox) at the same hospital Benny, Hanna’s son was in and learned that his six-year old granddaughter Lizzie had been hit and killed by the same person who hit Benny in an hit-and-run car accident. Both experience the pain of losing someone they held dear, even if momentarily and had understood what the other was going through. Look forward to Michael and Hanna’s relationship strengthening in THHN’s 2nd season.

Brooks has worked on numerous films, television shows and commercials including: Transformers Revenge of the Fallen and A Beautiful Soul. Television shows include: FX’s Sons of Anarchy, Showtime’s Shameless, FOX’s Brooklyn Nine Nine, 24, CBS’s CSI New York, critically acclaimed HBO’s The Wire and many others.
