“I love the word luck because at face value it can
be the demise of you or the best thing for you.
In this industry, hard work, dedication and luck
all intersect. I am very lucky based on all of the
things that I have put forth in my life. So for
anyone who is reading this and thinking it’s an
overnight success story, just remember, it’s not.
It’s a combination of those three things. There are
going to be great things that happen and not so
great. I don’t believe in failure — it’s a happy mistake.
Only from failure can you learn a lot about yourself.
Be okay with them.”
Covering our Spring 2023 issue, Chase Stokes sits
down with close friend and Marked Men co-star
Alexander Ludwig to discuss season three of Outer
Banks, his journey to stardom and the happy
mistakes that made him the actor he is today.
