I worked as an extra this week for the film, Wish You Well, which is filming right here in Giles county. I had an incredible time because I’ve never been on a set of a feature film. I was able to watch how the director, crew, and actors worked together giving me a better understanding of how much goes into movie making. Check out my 1940s costume under the photo tab

For the past three weeks my fellow cast mates and I have been rehearsing for the production of Woyzeck that will open on the 1st of November. This is my first time acting in a main stage production and its been an amazing learning experience.
This is the industry I have chosen to go into. Its a very daunting profession because 99% of actors are currently unemployed. Right now, I’m not not qualified for the industry, but I know if I put in the hard work and continue to study the profession, I believe that I can become a working successful actor. When you think of acting you probably think of big name actors such as, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Denzel Washington, etc. Obviously, every actors dream is to become famous, but there is money in the business besides major motion pictures. You can get paid for voiceovers, commercials, and print ads. Acting is a business and this blog is going to help create my personal brand so casting directors can see how passionate I am about this industry. I will blog about plays, acting tips, must read books for actors, and what I’m doing in my life to help my career. I have some big news involving a feature movie called, Wish You Well, which starts filming this Friday. Expect and update on Friday!
