I'm so happy to have gotten to be the 2nd witch in a virtual reading of Macbeth yesterday! Now I'm getting ready for an audition I have for later today. Bring it on!
"I think every day there is some new actress who comes out and inspires me to do something else... like Hilary Swank. After she did Boys Don't Cry (1999), I felt this yearning to go out and be even half as good as she was." - Elisabeth Moss
Did a great shoot this morning, and tomorrow I have another audition. They're great ways to both end and begin weeks!
"I come from a FULL house of storytellers. If they wanted to simply tell you about someone pouring the tea, it would take about ten minutes. They would act out all the parts. I had to kind of jump in there because, as the youngest, if I wanted to get in an opinion, I had to yell and jump and really participate." - Alfre Woodard
Yesterday was full of wonderful things! The morning was dedicated to a great audition and the afternoon to playing Ingrid in a spectacular virtual reading of Peer Gynt. How's that for ending the week on a high note?
"When there's work to do, we look at ourselves, we look to each other, and we step up." - Regé-Jean Page
I'm so happy that I got to act in a virtual theatrical reading! It was a feeling of hope and almost normalcy in midst of theatres still being understandably but sadly closed here in NYC. On top of that, I've been yearning to act in another piece by Shakespeare, so it made acting in Julius Caesar another win!
I'll be performing in two more upcoming virtual classical readings in the next few weeks ("Peer Gynt" for 3/20 at 1pm and the Scottish Shakespearean play which can't be named for 4/3 at 1pm), so I'll post the links to see them as soon as I have them.
How are all of you doing? I can see NYC starting to come back to life, but there's still that feeling of weirdness in the air. We'll all get through it, though. What other choice is there?

I have two fun auditions for this week, and I got to do them with a sprained thumb. Yes, you can sprain your thumb, so I of course had to do it. #spaz
I have another audition coming up, so I'll do my best to try this one without injuries!
"I remain thankful for the gifts that I've been given and I try to use them in a good way, in a positive way."

I had two awesome shoots this week and am getting ready for a fun audition.
Just because he's adorable, here's Major Buttons claiming my green shirt:
I had two excellent auditions this week, have a shoot in three days, and just saw footage of a shoot I was in last month. Saying this was a great week is an understatement, to say the least!
How about everyone reading this right now: How are you? With things still being weird, I hope everyone has found happiness, and I hope I'm offering at least some type of (un)necessary distraction.
Just had an excellent audition and am looking forward to another one this coming week!
"A person has to remember that the road to success is always under construction. You have to get that through your head. That it is not easy becoming successful." - Steve Harvey
Not only did I have an awesome shoot this week, I also had a very fun audition and two more for today and tomorrow! Ask and you will receive, right?
"It affords me also the additional opportunity of doing [stage work]. I am really grateful for the opportunity to do that because it's pretty rare I think, and I also choose to live in New York, and it's been really great that way." - BD Wong on acting in Law & Order SVU
I have another fun audition for tomorrow! It feels like the world is starting to slowly come back to life, at least on some level. Onward, and stay safe, everyone!
