How Arcand got into acting

Spotlight--Nathaniel Arcand can dance"Well, I had to do it the hard way. I went to jail," he says frankly. "I started hanging around with the wrong crowd at a young age and I found myself in youth detentions, and when I turned 18 I went to real jail and I realized at that point it was not for me. I really felt like I hit rock bottom at that point and I felt there was no place to go but up. I thought, 'Let's get my education back,' so I got my GED—that took a while—and in the meantime I was building myself back up, I was working, looking for whatever jobs I could."

It was while he was waiting for his friend, actor Dakota House, to have his headshots taken at a photography studio that a talent agent saw him and asked if he was interested in acting.

"I said, 'Yeah, sure!' So right there and then I signed up with my agent, Darryl Mork."
