Last week, I had the chance to work with Rickey Smiley and James Lewis in Rickey Smiley’s 2nd Season of his television show on TV1. I had three scenes and it was my first time doing that type of comedy, but I loved it. I also learned a lot about what certain writers want and got a chance to professionally grow my craft on set. There is something about learning, adjusting and succeeding under pressure. Can’t wait until the next adventure…
I just booked a live industrial for Chick-fil-a. An industrial is for internal use only, and a company will hire actors for their training videos etc. But a live industrial is where the company hires the actor to play a role for any variety of reasons. So I was a test for operating managers for the company. It was hilarious to reveal our real identity at the end of the day. They were so consumed in my “made up life,” as I “applied” for a position with the company. I truely enjoyed my career that day and I have to thank my improv coach Eric Goins for helping me to be able to be spontaneous. I look forward to many more projects.
May 18th was the big day for the SCAD Seniors to showcase their garments and only the best designs from the best designers were chosen. Luckily, my designer was chosen. Please check out her work. She is amazing. Just Google Kyung Jin Lee.
If you want to see the show, just click the link below…(that rhymed)
Here is the garment design that I wore down the runway.
So a few weeks back, I auditioned for an improv studies program at the Whole World Improv Theatre in Atlanta,GA. I got into the program and felt good about starting a new chapter in my career when three classes in, my instructor Eric Goins(Yes, I called you out) said I was ready for a show. I didn’t feel ready but I had no reason to turn it down. So I got on stage the next night and had a blast. It was so fun and freeing. I can’t wait to go back up there. Which will be atleast once a month… so get ready!
So after being denied some years ago, told “no” by other agencies, and signing with a small agency, I worked my butt off to build my resume, contacts and my reel so that when I tried again, I would not be denied. With that being said, I have just signed with Houghton Talent, Inc. in Atlanta, GA. I am thankful for my first agent who started me off and I hope to continue growing everyday and every audition.
So I forgot that I was selected to be a model for the seniors at SCAD Atlanta and I went on ahead and accepted a role for a play. Unfortunately, I had a schedule conflict and had to retract my acceptance. So I will be fitting as a model for SCAD and will be in a huge fashion show this May in Savannah.
So after 3 whole months of not being on stage as an actor, I just booked the role of O’hara in “Arsenic and Old Lace.” This is directed by Jeff Page. The audition was so fun, I would have been happy with that alone. But I booked it so I will get to play the entire role. Can’t wait.
For dates and times,
In January, I booked a gig for Chrisette Michele with Motown Records. She has an album coming out in April and I will be in her CD package. So go buy the album for the great music and beautiful imagery as well. Images will post once the album releases.
