Travis Kelce on his acting gig, White House visit and staying true to himself: 'Livin' the dream'

Travis Kelce is opening up about his life, sharing some updates from recent events including his acting debut, his visit to the White House, his future plans and more.

 

In an interview with “Good Morning America” which aired on Thursday, the 34-year-old three-time Super Bowl champion sat down with ABC News’ Will Reeve, discussing what he has been up to during his off-season.
Last week, Kelce joined his Kansas City Chiefs at the White House for a Super Bowl celebration during which Kelce was given an opportunity to step up to the podium.
“President [Joe] Biden called me up this time,” he recalled. “I didn’t have to sneak around him to get to it…It was cool. You know, I had no idea he was gonna do that. He kinda just sprung it on me. And it was real.”
“It was real. All the Secret Service guys that were there made sure to let me know that, you know…they got orders to keep me away from the podium unless asked…I was like, ‘Yeah.’… I felt all the Taser guns on me when I walked up there,” he said with a laugh.
“But it was cool, man. And that is such an unbelievable experience,” he added.

Adding a new skill onto his resume, Kelce is making a foray into Hollywood after landing a role in Ryan Murphy’s forthcoming FX series, “Grotesquerie.”
Asked if he is now an actor, Kelce replied, “I guess you could say that. Yeah.”
“I’ve been on a few shows before… I’ve only played myself in those shows, though,” he explained. “So it’s definitely different portraying a character and trying to find the emotions in everything, and the understanding of a script and the scene. But it’s a challenge.”
He said he has been “taking pointers” from everybody and “keeping an open ear” to learn.
“I feel like an amateur right now, but it’s definitely a fun challenge, and I’m enjoying every bit of it, for sure… I’m coachable. That’s one thing I know from being in sports, I am a coachable guy,” he said. “It’s just been awesome… Everybody involved in terms of the actors and the directors and the writers have just helped me out so much, understanding what I’m supposed to be doing. And I’m just havin’ fun with it.”
