“That’s life; when you get hooked on to something that you really like, jump on that bus and take it, it will take you there,” said Serna, who has starred in more than 100 movies, including “Scarface.”

Serna also told the students that no job is too small and that it wasn’t always about getting the job he wanted, but also calling his friends he thought would fit the role.
