Native actor didn’t expect films would be a career
Navajo actor Forrest Goodluck never expected that the film industry would be a big part of his life.
“It was just enjoying doing school plays,” Goodluck, 20, said. “It was never something I really thought of that would be anything.”
Growing up in Albuquerque, he has friends who were extras in films and he was blown away by it. “It was never my reality, though,” he said. Until he met a casting director who helped him land his first role.
Today, he’s been a part of nine films and counting. One of those films is “Indian Horse,” a feature film where he played the teenage version of the main character, Saul Indian Horse.
