Meet A Member: Sebastian Sacco

Meet Sebastian Sacco from Sussex who moved to LA last week(!) to pursue acting.

Was there a particular reason you chose LA?

I just found LA had so many more open doors for me. It has also always been my dream to come America and work in here.

What do you miss most from home?

Sarcasm and decent public transport. Why did I ever complain about the tubes!…

What was your first impression of LA and has it changed since?

I first came out two and half years ago. I instantly fell in love and knew I had to get back here. Now reality has come in and my eyes are way more open but I’m still very happy to be here and know I’ve done the right thing.

What do you find the biggest difference is living here versus your home town?

Well the weather is obviously the first thing. There something very exciting about LA. Walking around London you might occasionally spot something from TV or film but here it’s everywhere. Bit like being in New York. You kinda feel like you’re in a giant film set.

Do you have a hidden gem in LA that you want to share with us?

Go to Swingers Cafe, (locations on Beverly Boulevard and on Broadway in Santa Monica) order the vegan burrito. Repeat 2-3 a week for the rest of your life.

What would you suggest to others who are thinking about making the move here

Do your research and speak to as many people who live or lived here as you can. It’s such a huge jump. One I’m trying to get my head around. There seem to be many more pitfalls here than in England.

Lots of our members join our group Brits in LA seeking out words of wisdom – what is the best piece of advice you’ve been given? Get the vegan burrito! No jokes. I’m only in my first week, so don’t know how true this is but I got told that it takes two years to get anywhere in this town. So only 103 weeks to go.

Lastly, how can we find out more about you? Are you working on anything at the moment? My twitter and Instagram are @SebSacco or find me on
