Chord Overstreet suits up for the March issue of Zooey Magazine.
In the issue, Chord opens up about his roots, being new to acting and music.
“If people ask me [about my background] I’ll tell them,” Chord tells Zooey Magazine. “I’m from Nashville. My family is German, Irish, a little bit of Native American. [We’re] pretty much a mix of many different ethnicities. I came [to Los Angeles] when I was 19. Going from Nashville to LA is like going from a small town in the country where there isn’t much going on, to being [pushed] into the center of everything.”
And Chord comes from a musical family. His brother Nash is part of Hot Chelle Rae and his dad is a famous musician. But how has he adjusted to acting? “Acting’s a little new for me. I grew up doing music, but acting is a daily challenge. There’s always room for improvement in both music and acting and that’s why I love both. I like to be challenged.”
