The actor explains he is just getting started.
Donnell Turner, a star of General Hospital, is bound for the big screen, and not only for his Hollywood good looks. The fan favourite spoke with Soap Hub for this week’s Wellness Wednesday about how he remains physically fit and pursues filmmaking in his own time.
Donnell Turner — Working Smart
Turner claims that one of the reasons he now approaches exercise differently is because he recently celebrated a significant birthday. As we age, Turner suggests, “[maintaining our fitness] becomes more about eating.” “Unlike ten years ago, you can’t take up such large weights. The identical act I did [many years ago] today results in harm. As we become older, I advise my male friends to “Use lesser weights but perform greater reps.”
Conversations With Sonny
In terms of wellbeing, he argues, “We need to be more strategic, less careless, and more cautious.” Being nice to oneself, according to Turner, is crucial to wellbeing. “Take a break for yourself. Soak up those vitamins. You should pray.
Turner continues, “I had a discussion with Maurice [Benard, Sonny] about being in the here and now. “If something had gone wrong for five years, I would have been quite concerned. I now attempt a shoulder shrug. One definition of hell, according to something I ever heard, is meeting the potential self after death. I’m not keen on talking to that individual. I aspire to fulfil that role.
Donnell Turner — State of Mind
Turner has enrolled in a Los Angeles film school to get a bachelor’s degree in digital filmmaking in order to achieve this goal. He still has eight months left. Turner, who was just admitted into the school’s honour society, adds, “I’m learning a lot. When he first met his fellow inductees, they inquired as to what he was studying because he was a working actor on a network TV show.
He says, “For most, a contract [like the one I have at GH] is a finish line. “That’s not how I see things. It’s the beginning of something bigger. “Your direction is more essential than your location, in my opinion.”
Turner claims to be able to identify with Jennifer Lopez, who won the 2022 iHeart Radio Music Awards ICON Award. She informed the audience that she was only getting started as she concluded her address. That’s how Turner feels, he says. “I still approach things in the same manner that I did when I was younger. I continue to maintain my enthusiasm and energy.
