DA MAN: This being your first time in Australia, have you learned any Aussie slang yet?
Nash Grier: Some! But it’s just not the same without the accent though.
DA MAN: On tour, with these long flights and drives how do you like to pass the time?
Nash Grier: Writing, reading, sleeping & watching films.

DA MAN: Back to back, show after show, what motivates you to keep performing?
Nash Grier: There is nothing like meeting people who support you & creating an experience for them and yourself to remember/cherish.
DA MAN: What’s been the hardest part about touring thus far?
Nash Grier: Sleep, Food, Sickness. Sleeping is much harder but you make the most of cars, planes & the green room etc. I’ve been vegan for a little over a year & when you’re on the move every day you never know where your food is coming from (unless it’s all pre ordered). In South America this was especially hard, I lost a lot of weight & felt very weak. If you do two of these things wrong combined with meeting so many people – getting sick becomes very likely.
DA MAN: And the best part?
Nash Grier: The best part is exploring new places, learning new things, meeting new people & pushing your boundaries.
DA MAN: You’ve talked about delving into longer form filmmaking; whether it’s behind or in front of the camera, what’s one film you wish you were a part of?
Nash Grier: There’s too many to name. The best pictures/stories make me feel as if I am a part of the movie.
