Early life

When he was 13, he found an agent then told his parents, ‘I am interested in pursuing acting’. His first role was a commercial for Coca Cola that he auditioned at the age of just 13.

At 14, his mother Betty glover showed him an ad in Variety for an audition for a production of “The Sound of Music” for girls and boys that could dance and sing. But he said:

I’m not really a dancer or singer.

His mother said that “You can do it.” Before the birth of Crispin his mother had a career in the San Francisco Ballet and performing in musicals on and off Broadway, so Crispin knew she knew what she was talking about professionally.

At 14, Crispin Glover got the role of Friedrich Von Trap and played in Los Angeles at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and San Francisco at the Orpheum Theatre for 6 months altogether.

Two years later when he was 16, his mother showed him another ad from Variety for another cattle call audition for doing an improvisation for a pilot for a television show. By then he was already studying improvisation with technique at an acting school so he was confident and again went through the cattle call experience to get a role in the pilot. Know that he was teenager at 16, he could drive, she took me to various auditions and acting classes and was supportive. She played roles in two of my three feature film productions I’ve directed. One of which is still forthcoming.
