This past weekend I attended Actorfest LA hosted by Backstage with my good friend and actress/model Susanna. We were a little bummed when we saw the sheer number of acting hopefuls (we waited two hours to meet with with one casting director…for 2 minutes!).

Last spring I acted in the short film Greasy Lake based on the TC Boyle short story. This past weekend I attended the LA premiere of the film at the Hollywood Film Festival. Click to watch a sneak peek of my scene.

Needless to say acting is a tough career and sometimes following your dreams means surviving your worst nightmares. One of the hardest challenges to deal with when pursing acting, is facing rejection and moving forward with confidence no matter what happens. It’s a numbers game and the trick is to do your best when you get the chance to shine, to “stay in the moment,” even when you know it’s back to pounding the pavement when your acting job is completed.
I got a role in Evan Nicholas’ short film “Headshot” and documented my day of filming, facing my fears, and then sharing with my viewers the final product – a fun film that deals with the very theme so many actors face. A film about how sometimes no matter how great of an actor you are, that doesn’t mean you are “right” for the part.
