Josh Daugherty had heard about southern hospitality, but he wasn’t prepared for just how real it was when he and his wife moved to Atlanta from LA and a neighbor gave them cookies and helped them move in. Since then, he’s found a terrific and giving community full of talented people willing to learn and help each other out.

Josh came on the show to discuss the reasons why they left LA, and it ‘s not just about money. He also talks about acting in Season 3 of Mr. Mercedes, his acting and teaching philosophy, and growing up in Oregon. Check it out and make sure to see Mr. Mercedes on the Audience Network!
