This year has brought with it many wonderful surprises and blessings for me and my family! If you haven’t already heard, I’m excited to report that I booked IN PLAIN SIGHT the last time I went in for it. I shot it on 04/01/10 and had a blast! My call time for the shoot was late in the day, so we ended up shooting until almost 3 o’clock in the morning. No problem though, I don’t mind rolling with the punches when I’m on set, I’m just happy to be there. :)

Some highlights from the shoot include:
  • The Director telling me that he saw my work on GREY’S ANATOMY, and it's one of the reasons he wanted me for the job. Very cool!
  • Having one of the Producers tell me that I looked familiar to him. Turns out he produces for GREY’S ANATOMY as well, and knows me from that set.
  • Having the opportunity to work with another great bunch of folks, which included Mary McCormack, Steven Weber, and Alexandra Lydon. All CLASS ACT actors, by the way. :)
  • Hearing encouraging rumors that my character might return, and soon. Praying hard for this to happen!
  • And, last but certainly not least, a fully stocked sushi bar, in which the sushi was prepared fresh right in front of us! Yes, it’s the little things that make me happy. Lol.

In other news, still making progress with the short film (JEREMIAH) I signed up to do at the beginning of the year. Our shoot dates have been pushed back to Summer 2010, but it looks like we recently made our budget, so we’re all amped about that.

Another exciting thing that has happened recently is that Taya-Morgan had the opportunity to audition for a LEAD Role in a Feature Film. Wow! That was certainly an unexpected blessing. (Truth be known, I’VE never had an audition for a role that big, but I didn’t dare tell her that. Lol.) My little one’s are used to doing print work, but not much on camera stuff, so she really got first hand knowledge on what this “acting stuff” is all about. What made me most proud is that although she felt like she wanted to give up a couple of times, she hung in there, put in the work and got it done. Not bad for a 7.5 year old. She had to memorize 4 pages of dialogue and tape the audition repeatedly for almost two hours. After it was all said and done, she tells me, “Mom, I didn’t realize acting was this hard!” She’s very excited about it, and I know she’d love to do the part, if called upon.

I also had big audition this month! I had the opportunity to audition for a CONTRACT Role on the THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. My first soap audition. I still haven’t heard anything regarding either of these projects , but I’m hopeful and prayerful that if it’s the Lord’s will we’ll book one, the other, or both!

So, that’s it for now. In a few minutes, I’ll be prepping for a callback that I have later today, but I wanted to sit down to put the finishing touches on this blog entry that I’ve been trying to get done for the last few days.

Take care and keep reaching for the STARS!
