Just this weekend I decided to quit waiting for approval from some outside source (like an agent or manager for instance) and take my career into my own hands. I decided to approach my acting career the way I have always approached my Behind The Scenes career: just putting myself out there as a humble student, ready to take on any assignment, willing to start right at the bottom and work my way up to the top, treating every job as an equally important opportunity no matter how big or small, and with a desire to be a teamplayer and do my part to make the set environment great.
So I put myself up on Actor’s Access and just started submitting myself for parts and next thing you know I have an audition and a booking. I am taking this as a sign that I am on the right track.
As far as the gig goes, we shoot tomorrow. Yay!!! Very excited. Unfortunately I am not at liberty to say what it is but I can tell you it is a new TV Show that will air (but I have no idea when or what channel) and that it turns out that reality on TV is….well…its a bit of a loose term.
I’ll keep you posted on how it goes. Should be quite an adventure into the land of Improv!
