THE LIFE OF AN ACTOR KNOWS MANY INSECURITIES. YOU ARE NEVER REALLY SURE WHETHER YOU HAVE A JOB AND IF NOT, IT CAN TAKE A LONG TIME AND A LOT OF INVESTMENT TO GET ONE. ENDLESS AUDITIONS AND REJECTIONS CAN BREAK DOWN YOUR SELF ESTEEM. IT ALMOST WORKS AS A FILTER TO SEPARATE THE STRONG FROM THE WEAK. BUT IF YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, YOU KNOW ONE DAY YOUR CHANCE WILL COME. THAT SUCCESS WIL COME YOUR WAY. THAT ATTITUDE IS WHAT CHARACTERIZES A LEADER.
Within a few hours, one couple ends and another begins. Adam is leaving Trent, ending their dysfunctional relationship.
