Don’t count your chickens before they hatch … but at least get paid for them: Getting cast on Veep, Part 3 of 3.
The last part of this three part epic is sad, short and explains the title. Six months had passed and my episode of Veep was released. I put the episode on and did a slow fast forward through it looking for myself … I was going to watch the whole episode but the suspense was […]
Don’t count your chickens before they hatch … but at least get paid for them: Getting cast on Veep, Part 2 of 3.
When you’re on the set of a film or television show you meet a lot of interesting people. There are so many different people doing so many different jobs, lighting, sound, production assistants, caterers, wardrobe and background just to name a very few. Background is hard work; I’ve done a decent amount of it. It’s […]
Trying to be a working actor some days are busier than others. Last week I voiced the character of Kitty Pride in an X-Men graphic novel for a company that turns comic books into audio books. It was a really fun job and I hope to work with them again soon. Wednesday I took […]
I just ate a cupcake…okay two cupcakes, they were small. As I was eating my delicious chocolate cupcakes with delectable butter cream frosting and delightful colored sprinkles I started thinking about sugar and how everyone is talking about how terrible it is. As I’m chewing I’m thinking “yeah this sugar is really bad for […]
I’m driving along to another audition in Philadelphia for a Pennsylvania Lottery commercial, no the irony is not lost on me, I am acutely aware that my chances of booking this part are about the same as winning big on a scratch off. I’ve already auditioned for at least six other lottery commercials and have […]
I have employed a system called Mail Chimp to help me send out email notifications when there are new posts on this blog. A fun but detrimental little tool that Mail Chimp has is the ability to keep me updated on how many people are reading my emails. Actually it’s a very detailed system that […]
So my original thought in writing this blog was that it would be a chance to put my ideas and stories out there, express myself without the day-to-day rejection and criticism I experience as an actor. What I actually have done is unwittingly walked right into a brand new genre ripe with it’s own brand […]
Let me start by saying I love my mom and dad. My parents are wonderful people who have been very supportive of my quest to follow my dreams. They are also both full of ideas that they believe would be the key to my success. My mom is a very sweet woman, with a heart […]
I don’t get sent out for on camera commercial auditions by my agent very often, 99 percent of the time they call me for voiceover auditions. The only reason for this as far as I can tell is because I have an unfortunate face. If anyone else has a better reason for my limited on […]
If you’ve been reading this chronicle of my days and struggle/ journey to become a successful actor you probably notice that it’s a lot of effort for little return. The truth of the matter is all this work for such little recognition and by recognition I mean yes I need for people to like me […]
My husband works in DC, my parents live in Philly, and my agent is in New York. I live wherever there are jobs, gigs and auditions. One night I was with my husband in Washington and I got a call; I’m wanted for a callback in NYC. This is a call back for a new […]
When I first moved to New York the first job I had was as a wardrobe person at the Barrow Street Theater. It was a theater where lots of cool actors would do new plays while they were on hiatus or “in between projects”. It was at that theater where I saw Sarah Jessica Parker […]
