Boxer turned film star Andy Gatenby has undergone a lot of vicissitudes in the past few years of his life. After the former boxer lost track of his boxing career, he resorted to enhancing his mental health and well-being to persevere during the hard times.
Immediate retirement was brought to the 34-year old boxing icon when he suffered an eye injury while competing for his first title. Prior to that, Gatenby stood as an undefeated boxing champion.
To add to his woes, he was informed that he had flunked his medical exam, ahead of an English boxing championship contest. Pertaining to this, the Portsmouth puncher was compelled to hang up his gloves, after working for the very moment for decades.
Following this, Gatenby found his new love in acting. Since then, he decided to train himself as an actor to venture into television shows and movies. Gatenby had to inculcate immense positive thinking inside him. Subsequently attending workshops, he whizzed through the newly adopted career with everything he had.
And the hard work bore sweet fruit! He was recently seen alongside the award-winning actor Billy Murray in a British thriller movie titled “Nemesis”.
Upon being asked what well-being means to Gatenby, he quoted – “The phrase well-being for me means taking care and looking after yourself until you feel good. If you are not good to yourself, then you can’t help the people around you too. Internally, when you feel good, it becomes easy to pass on the positivity to other people and make them feel good about themselves too”.
Gatenby is now gearing up to ace his next upcoming film ‘Renegades’, which is going to hit the silver screens soon.
