What You’ll Learn
5:14 What it was like to be an actor from a young age
Lucas Black talks about how when he started working as an actor at a very young age, it was a learning experience for him and his family. Something very important is that his parents are people of great faith and based on that they decided which roles he would accept to work in, also so that he could have the most normal childhood possible. It helped that he grew up in a middle-class family in a small Alabama town and that his neighbors did not treat him any differently.
Lucas Black acknowledges all the effort and sacrifices his parents made in order to support him in his acting career.

Lucas Black says that in 10 years what he wants his children to remember is how he and his wife modeled marriage and set the example for them.
He says that today he sees many young people waiting until their mid-thirties to get married and start a family, and he believes it has something to do with a generation ago there were these beliefs that you had to wait until you had a good education, some job or financial stability, but in reality what you need, according to Lucas Black is to find a good partner.
Problems in a marriage are going to happen whether you get married at 20 or 40, but you have to know how to work as a team with your partner, face problems together and grow to improve each other.
