Chris Pine Shares Best Career Advice From Mother At ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ SXSW Premiere
Chris Pine is sharing the best piece of career advice he obtained from his mother, actress Gwynne Gilford.
The 42-year-old actor attended the premiere of his new and upcoming film, “Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves,” at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in Austin, Texas, on Friday.
At the event, Pine spoke to People and revealed the advice his mother gave him about his career, saying, “[It] was, ‘There are no asterisks on the bottom of the screens,’” before adding, “So no matter how hard the day was, or if it was raining, or if you were sick, no one’s gonna care.”
In its report published Saturday, the magazine noted that the “Don’t Worry Darling” actor comes from a family of actors and actresses.
As reported, Chris Pine’s mother, Gwynne Gilford, is known for her role in the 1987 film, “Masters of the Universe,” while his father, Robert Pine, is most recognizable for his role as Sgt. Joseph Getraer on the hit series, “CHiPs.”
The magazine continued that the “Star Strek” star’s grandmother was also an actress, adding that she was a WWII-era pinup model, as well.
As for his sister, Katherine Pine, it is said that she has dabbled in the same space, appearing in titles like “CHiPs ‘99.”
Meanwhile, “Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” is one of the latest projects Chris Pine has worked on.
Variety noted in a recent report that the actor plays the role of Edgin, a rakish bard, opposite Michelle Rodriguez, who plays the character of Holga, a warrior and his platonic life partner.
As stated, the action comedy title follows the two figures as they go on a quest to reunite Pine’s character with his estranged daughter, Chloe Coleman’s Kira.
Amid the journey, it is said that they wind up working with a valorous paladin, Regé-Jean Page’s Xenk, a sorcerer with an inferiority complex, Justice Smith’s Simon, and a no-nonsense shapeshifting druid, Sophia Lillis’ Doric.
At the SXSW premiere, which occurred earlier on Friday, the title, alongside its cast, stole the hearts of the audience, as per the publication.
Elsewhere at the event, Chris Pine spoke to USA TODAY and discussed the fantasy film, including the game that inspired the title.
In the exchange with the outlet, published Saturday, the “Wonder Woman” actor revealed that he did not play the game until his nephew introduced him to it, adding that he ended up playing with his nephew and the rest of his family at his house and “had a great time doing it.”
Pine also stated, “I love the imagination of it. I love the positivity of it. I love the improv of it.”
"Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves" will hit the big screens on March 31.
