The cover, shot by photographer Kevin Sikorski, masterfully captures Zane in a retro inspired countryside shoot. This visual, a result of collaborative efforts between Producer Paulina Older and Stylist Branden Ruiz, is meant to highlight Zane’s recent rise in the entertainment sector.
Zane’s participation in ‘Glamorous’ coincides with the show’s aim to spotlight LGBTQ+ representation. The series, conceptualized by Jordon Nardino, underscores the relevance of celebrating queer identities. For Zane, it draws parallels with his past work on ‘Fire Island’.
In a detailed conversation with Contributing Editor Nikola Bajovic, Zane provides an overview of his career trajectory. He mentions his introduction to theater during his high school days when he took part in a community production. Zane notes, “…this art form was an avenue of exploration.“
He doesn’t shy away from discussing the professional challenges he’s faced. Emphasizing the unpredictability of the industry, he highlights the importance of perseverance. His journey as an openly queer actor has been shaped, in part, by insights from colleagues like Claybourne Elder, Eric Rosen, and Robert Gant.
Zane also touches upon the balancing act required between personal and professional life, commenting, “It’s an ongoing process.“. Post his graduation from Elon University, he has certain NYC spots he frequents, including the Bronx Botanical Garden, Culture Espresso, and the Tiki Chick bar.
